Too busy? Don't even have the time to boil an egg? Well, you can now buy them ready-to-eat.
Yes, a British company has launched pre-cooked eggs for shoppers who lack the knack to boil their own -- in fact, the eggs are available in packs of two or four and have even had the shell removed for those who find peeling too taxing.
Rob Newell, the marketing head at Happy Egg Company, said: "Happy Boiled Eggs are the perfect solution for people who love free range eggs but don't have the time or knack to prepare a boiled egg."
The firm claims its hard-boiled eggs are "cooked to perfection" and ideal for picnics or packed lunches. It says that as well as being eaten on their own, the eggs could be chopped and served in sandwiches or as part of a summer salad.
It also claims its egg-laying hens are free to roam on green pasture and are equipped with perching platforms and sandpits to enhance the birds' natural surroundings. The farms are regularly visited by so-called field teams who are experts in hen behaviour, 'The Daily Telegraph' reported.
A two-egg pack has a recommended selling price of 89p while it costs 1.49 pounds for four.
"As the summer months approach, we are confident they will be a real hit for picnics and offer fresh inspiration to those wanting a tasty and nutritious snack in minutes," Newell was quoted as saying.
