Although summer seems like it's now long gone, a few weekends ago myself and my family made the most of one of the last sunny weekends by having a yummy healthy salad! Sunday's in our household is definitely family day, so my dad put on a spread, my nan handed out the plates and we all helped ourselves.
However, one of my favourite parts of lunch was eggs from The Crackin' Egg company - something I'd been saving for a nice hot day. I was sent these delicious and colourful hard boiled eggs to review and couldn't help but marvel at how different and cute they are!
Perfect for light lunches and picnics, these delicious eggs come in sweet packaging, with flavour sachets too - oh, and the eggs are painted cute colours! How awesome! I thought this idea was so sweet, taking the notion of hard boiled eggs from simply a summertime snack to an essential and welcome addition to lunchboxes, salads and picnics everywhere.
Although we peeled off the shell before serving, there's no doubt they'd brighten up any plate. Kids will enjoy them too, loving the idea the containers the eggs come in and the process of removing the bright shells!
The eggs themselves were delicious and combined well with our healthy salad. The eggs contain less then 70 calories each and, as we all know, are super nutritious.
I've since taken some into work with me for lunch and have had colleagues comment on them, asking curiously about why they're painted bright colours (the protective coating that eggs have when hens lay them is actually removed during the boiling process, so The Crakin' Egg company paints them to keep them in great condition. FYI, the paint is safe!), and where they can get their own from.
I absolutely loved these tasty and healthy hard boiled eggs which, with the flavoured sachets, contained a lot more flavour then normal hard boiled eggs. You can buy your own from Spar now and they are available in multi packs too now! You can find out more here.
