One of my "foodie dislikes" is under-done hard boiled eggs - where the yolk is still runny. Ughhh! I need nice, firm, hard egg yolks to really enjoy it - and I do love hard boiled eggs. So when I was sent a sample of Eggology Hardboiled Eggs, I was ready to try it because all the work has basically been done for us - and we are guaranteed firmness. Each small box comes with 2 eggs (which must be kept refrigerated below 40F).
As you can see from the picture, when the eggs are cut open, they look exactly like what you would expect, with a deep yellow, smooth, firm yolk in the center and a firm egg white outer layer. I microwaved them for about 45 seconds to warm them up, added a little salt (which is included in the Eggology pack along with black pepper), and they were ready for the tasting. I was pleased with the soft but firm texture, and the only thing I can really say is that the yolk was very smooth - smoother and softer than when I make hard boiled eggs - but I usually boil my eggs for a really long time to ensure that the yolks are done.
The major concern with eggs is the amount of cholesterol. Just 1 of the Eggology Hard Boiled Eggs (40 grams), has 63% of the daily value for cholesterol - and each pack comes with 2 eggs. Other than that, the nutrition facts are stellar. Only 70 calories, 4 grams of total fat, no saturated or trans fat, 5% of the RDA for sodium, and 6 grams of protein per egg. The ingredients are simply eggs, water, citric acid and sea salt.
I received a sample pack from Eggology, so I'm not about the retail price. Admittedly, it may seem a bit silly to some to buy pre-packaged hard boiled eggs, but I can think of a few occasions where the portability and time-saving would be well worth it.
