Today I had a Free-range Tesco Egg on toast and a Garden Hen Betty Egg on toast for lunch.
In a controlled taste test, going first with the Betty Egg the following was observed:
- The Garden Hens Egg was Yellow like the sun, pert, petite and packed full of flavour – and tasted like an Egg should.
Then the Tesco Egg was consumed:
- The Tesco Egg was bright Orange in colour, tasteless but large Egg. The Tesco egg was so poor in comparison that I had to resort to Branston Pickle to get some pleasure from it. The Egg taste from Betty’s Egg dissolved in a matter of moments.
I felt bad for the Tesco Chicken that laid the Tesco Egg as it’d done all that hard work and I didn’t enjoy it.
Sorry Tesco Chicken.

Note: the Tesco Egg used in this experiment was ‘sprawling’ across the frying pan due to it not being ‘fresh from the chicken’ whereas the Betty Egg was a few days old and still very pert.
