I have never noticed any difference in the taste either but I suppose if you’re not terribly fond of the yolks I can see how two in one egg would put you off.

The yolks of double yolked eggs are tasteless compared to the yolks of normal eggs.

Speaking of double yolkers, 1 turned up in my cookery class the other day - shame we were using egg to bind meatballs.

I've always been very fond of them as well...twice the yolk to dip your toast in.

If you buy jumbo eggs consistently, I bet you'd find one, sooner or later.

This.

The first time I ever got one, it just kinda weirded me out so I threw it in the sink. The next two I cracked were double yolks. I gave up on disliking them after that =P

I buy only Jumbo eggs but I buy two different kinds. I buy farmed eggs that are brown for eating fried, scrambled or poached because the yolks are very deep yellow and intensely flavored. I also buy jumbos from the supermarket for hard boiling and for adding the extra white to my fried or scrambled egg. The last 3 cartons of eggs I bought from the supermarket were ALL double yolks. Every single egg was a double. I haven't seen this happen since I was a kid.
