M&S Guarantees a Double-Yolker in Every Twice-as-Expensive Egg

By Gary Cutlack on at

The thrill of finding a double-yolker in your eggs is about to be ruined by M&S, which has come up with a way to check for double-yolk eggs and make sure there's six in every single box.

This joy comes at a price, mind, with M&S practically doubling the price of half a dozen eggs to £2.75, as part of a move that also sees it offer more interesting eggs from other breeds of hen.

To get the double-yolkers each egg is individually candled by hand to check its contents, with the doubles set aside for the rich and the novelty-seekers to enjoy. [The Grocer]
