Yeah, the same as what you see in sandwich vending machines - two eggs with little packets of salt and pepper.

Nah, they have date codes that show at least a month ahead.
Funny how the egg yolk starts forcing it's way thru the side if you don't Saran wrap them tight after opening the nitrogen filled clear plastic pouches they come in. If wrapped tightly in Saran wrap after opening, they keep nicely. If not, the yolk starts coming thru the white part in a few days. I'm not quite sure why that is.

Interesting. I'm not one to avoid all processed foods, but I'll draw the line at month-old cooked eggs.

Boiled eggs sold in a bag? How hard is it to boil an egg?

My thoughts exactly. Especially the ones sold already peeled.

I think the idea is to offer a nutritious alternative to some of the quick foods available in convenience stores, like when you're on a road trip.

How crazy is that? I saw some boiled and shelled eggs being sold at Trader Joe's, of all places! That blew me away. Good grief.

The amount of time we spent on hard cooking eggs has always amazed me.

Do we need a thread on the easiest way to peel an egg?
