New Product Alert! Crackin' Eggs (Review)

I love eggs. They're so good for you - so much so that I recently wrote a whole blog post devoted to the health benefits they can offer (I'll link to that post at the bottom). So I was excited when The Crackin' Egg Co. got in touch asking me to trial their new product: Crackin' Eggs.

Crackin' Eggs are free range, hard boiled eggs covered in a special wax coating which, according to their press release, 'keeps the good stuff in and the bad stuff out'. Because of this, they have an ambient shelf life of 4-6 weeks, which is amazing. If you hard boiled an egg at home you'd have to keep it refrigerated and it'd only last for a few days. Plus, you don't have to cook them yourself – a great time saver if you're in a hurry.

My first impression upon opening my delivery was how pretty they are – the packaging is eye-catching and the actual eggs are brightly coloured, almost like Easter eggs. I don't have children but I imagine they would be very appealing to kids. They come in four different colours, each colour having its own flavour sachet to sprinkle on. The blue eggs come with salt & pepper, the red ones sweet chilli and the green sour cream & chive. The yellow eggs are plain; they don't come with any flavouring.

I also like the fact that they're so convenient – ready cooked and pre-packaged so all you have to do is throw them in your lunchbox and away you go! I've been taking mine to work with me and also to the gym – they're a fantastic high-protein snack to munch on after a workout. Hubster has just been eating them at home and as a quick snack on the go.

So how do they taste? Well, just like a hard boiled egg, to be honest! The flavour sachets are a nice touch - my favourite by far was the sour cream and chive and I would definitely buy it.

Crackin' Eggs should be on the market in the near future at a cost of £1.59 for a two pack and £3.49 for a traditional half dozen.
