They think eggs rule, and they wouldn’t be far wrong. The Crackin Egg Co have taken the idea of hard boiling eggs and added a protective coating to lock in the goodness, and they’re ready to eat.
We tested the sour cream and chive and the salt and black pepper eggs, that are high in protein, rich in omega 3 and only 77 calories each.
My first question was the one about eggs being high in cholesterol. Thankfully, the Crackin Egg Co have an answer for that.
Yes it’s true, eggs are high in cholesterol with a medium egg containing just over half of our RDA, but it’s not all bad. We need cholesterol in our diets to help us produce the acids that help to properly digest fat and keep our cells functioning properly. Too much of anything is a bad thing, but it has been proven that eggs do not adversely affect cholesterol levels in our blood. In fact, eating eggs actually helps to raise the level of good, HDL (high-density lipoprotein) cholesterol and turns the bad, LDL (high-density lipoprotein) from small particles to large. This means fat is mobilised around our bodies more effectively and the bad cholesterol becomes benign. How nice of those cracking little eggs to look out for us.
Where To Keep The Eggs
These are the end of eggs that need to be kept in the fridge. The special coating means that Crackin Eggs can be kept anywhere, as long as it’s under 20 Degrees C.
How To Eat
Our eggs are simply peel and eat, so they’re perfect for lunchboxes.
The kids were well impressed with my little egg cup that had my name on it. I suspect if it was an option to buy those egg cups, there could be a nice little run on them.
Where To Get Them
They won’t be on supermarket shelves until June 2015, so keep an eye out for these and for the bright yellow six packs of boiled eggs that would be perfect for school lunch bags.
