M&S: Now with guaranteed double yolker eggs
Egg fans! What is it you like about double-yolk eggs? Do you like the randomness of it, getting a bonus yolk at sporadic points in your life like an eggy lottery? Or you do like the increased yolk-to-white ratio and to hell with the randomness?
Well, Marks & Spencer are now selling cartons that guarantee you double-yolk eggs. Has the fun been taken out of the process or are you thinking "I DON'T CARE! HURRY UP AND MAKE 100% YOLK EGGS ALREADY!"?
Even though, statistically, the probability of finding a double yolker is 1-in-a-1,000, M&S have hit on something to ensure you get two (or more) yolks per egg. Imagine. A triple yolker. That'd be great.
The suppliers for M&S are utilising a method called 'candling', which basically means that someone picks an egg up and looks at it with a light behind it and weighs up the shadow, to see if there's more than one yolk.
M&S product developer Ali Rodham said: “We’re really excited to be selling double yolkers. We think they’re cracking, and we’re sure our customers will too."
"Perfect for people who think the yolk is the best bit of the egg, double yolkers are not only delicious, but they are healthy too."
So there you have it. More yolk in your gob. If you want in on this, get yourself to a Marks and Spencer shop and look for the British Free Range Double Yolkers which will be on the shelves for £2.75 for a box of six.
We're hoping someone starts selling eggs that have more eggs inside them next, like this monster.
