Best supermarket eggs?

(12 Posts)

Just finding some supermarket free range eggs completely tasteless! For those of us not able to access local farm ones, any suggestions as to the best supermarket ones? Used to enjoy nice poached or boiled eggs but gone right off them now due to pale yolks and watery whites.
Would organic have more taste or does flavour depend on what birds are fed?
Thanks

I have a cake making business that I run from home and until recently I had been having deliveries from a fairly local free range egg farm. One week they were unable to deliver and I popped in to my nearest aldi and picked up some free range eggs from there and to be honest they are just as good. They make great cakes and as a poached egg fan I find them very tasty! And they are the same price as buying in bulk from the farm.

Ah that is interesting as the current Aldi ones I am trying are amongst the worst ever. A couple of decent ones but the rest of the box revolting. Had some reasonable Aldi & Lidl ones before but find no consistency.

I buy the Clarence Court Burford Browns...you can definitely get them in Sainsbury’s and Waitrose and they taste like eggs should taste

Another nod for Burford Browns. And Old Cotswold Legbar (blue box).

I always buy free range but I have noticed no difference between brands.

I splash out on Burfords! Can't beat a good egg!

Well you can, but only for cake batter. wink

Clarence Court Burford Browns are so good, tend to lose appetite for any other eggs. Always good and yolks always orange!
