I honestly can't imagine buying hard boiled eggs other than at a deli, when you are buying a sandwich and/or other things for lunch that you will be taking back to your desk to eat or in the car for a trip.
I saw them on the shelf, in a big box store (can't remember which) for the first time only a couple of months ago. I didn't pick them up to examine so have no idea if they are shelled or how the packaging is. I believe they were only packaged in 4's?
I also don't know the price to compare but remember thinking 4 cooked eggs for the price of 12? or somewhere in that vicinity.
who would pay that? I don't get it. but obviously from what some of you say there is a market for them.
I'll never say never but really do have a hard time imagining I would purchase some to have at home 'cause I might want to make egg salad sandwiches later that week!
