Found 18th Jan 2009Made hot 19th Jan 2009
All,

I spotted these instore Asda yesterday, an amazing 30 eggs for £1.46.

This was a bargain in my eyes so we bought 2 packs, plenty of cake making coming up in the next few weeks!

I don't know about online availability I'm afraid.

Free range or caged hens...?

I am assuming that these are from caged hens??!! Therefore voted cold as not a hot deal for me.

Voted hot out of spite.

Surely it's worth finding out for definite first...? Reserving judgment till OP confirms!

the word value is enough to be able to judge these are caged

Be sure to come back and let us know if you ever find 30 free range eggs for £1.46. Now that WOULD be hot.

I think egg deals should be banned. They always start the same old, old, old, tedious, irritating debate.

If they're caged, I'll vote cold. Just wanna be sure first!

Cooks value eggs are not free range. Website has listed them under standard and not free range and states they are from caged hens!!

:thumbsup:

Hows about we all vote the majority of items on here cold for 'ethical' reasons, child labour, slave wages etc rather than if it's a good deal or not. Could make the site 'interesting':)

Good idea! It may save me getting wound up when I read all these ethical and political comments.:thumbsup:

So if they're caged that negates the fact that they are cheaper than the equivalent eggs for sale elsewhere? And thus makes it cold?

Look! I'm doing it! Get my coat for me shengis!

being labled Free Range does not mean the bird wanders around the land laying eggs willy nilly although agreed they have a better laying enviroment than caged hens. I found the info from defra intersting.
defra.gov.uk/foo…htm.
I also read an article that we had been duped for years by supermarkets buying imported eggs from abroad that were from caged hens but selling them as free range. :x

:lol:

Personally for me I don't think it is a good deal. I wouldn't buy these or advise anyone to buy these for 20p. I'm not getting into the ethics of it, if someone wants to buy and vote hot that is up to them but for me this is not a hot deal. It does not need a full debate.

yes this is in ASDA Leeds as well confirm that. voted hot

not free range, cold cold cold!!!!

Morrissey fan. I rest.

These are not free range...voting cold on ethical grounds.

Hotter than my frying pan!!!!! :thumbsup:

So free range isn't just as much a slave trade as caged then? Interesting:)

Cold from me....
Something is only a good deal for me if the product is worth having. Battery chicken eggs are bland and tasteless and the chickens live a miserable life.
I will always pay the extra for free range.

Fair reason for a cold vote:)

Ive voted Hot.

Once an egg is in a cake you cant tell if its free range or not.

It is all very well having principles when you have the money to choose. Some people dont have that luxury.

Dont vote cold just because you dont like where they come from - just dont vote. And save the debate for somewhere else. If all I had was £1.50 and needed to feed myself or kids I dont think any of us would be too particular

Very good price
Voted Hot

Hot from me, as it's a good deal, seen as my ASDA delivery just turned up and I paid about £3 for 12 free frange:shock:
All those voting cold for ethical reasons, do please take into account, not everyone is in a fortunate enough position to be able to refuse things such as this on ethical grounds.
What with a recession and lots of people struggling to feed their families, this is very good deal, not everyone is a lucky as us at the moment and many cannot be "picky" about their food.
Voting cold for ethical reasons, is just silly, where would you draw the line?

It's a good find op:thumbsup:

What is the point of just saying (no, bleating) exactly the same thing as half s dozen people before you?

What is the point of your worthless contributions to this thread?

That's right, I went there!

Also, you might like to hear that I'm voting this cold for ethical reasons. To those of you saying that some can't afford that bit extra for free range - if this is the case, buy lentils instead (high-protein, as are eggs). If you take a little time to think and investigate, there is usually an affordable solution to problems related to the expense of animal products.

Hmm lentil mayonnaise sandwiches. Sounds yummy.

Wasn't going to vote either way, but given the amount of people voting cold on 'ethical' grounds - just how much research do you do on the products you buy every day?

If you ever buy any products or services from Barclays, Shell, Apple, Nestle, Mars, Coca-Cola, L'Oreal, Garnier and countless other companies then you have no 'ethical' leg to stand on and you are the worst type of hypocrite.

If you do the research into those listed you will find evidence of child labour (Nestle has a 40% child labour work force in the Ivory Coast, Apple use known Chinese child labour factories to produce things like the iPod) Human rights abuses (Coca-cola have paid for people to be tortured and killed in Columbia as they wanted to join a union and drain India of its vital fresh water supplies), Environmental destruction (Shell have poisoned entire villages because of using unsafe practice to extract oil while paying local governments back-handers to look the other way just to save some money) L'Oreal and Garnier have both been known to use harmful chemicals in their 'beauty' products and are also 50% owned by child labour users Nestle.

Since I started looking into where my products come from and how they are made, my shopping list has changed one hell of a lot, but as some of these companies are so big, they have shares in so many things it becomes impossible to avoid them altogether.

I could add a whole load more, but whats the point. Most people in the west really don't care if it makes their lives a little easier. All these things continue to happen and because it isn't on your doorstep you don't want to know. Some hens down the road in battery conditions and suddenly you're all activists. Get your priorities straight.

It's good that you posted all this, but let me help you out with the flaws in your argument (free of charge!):

"If you ever buy any products or services from Barclays, Shell, Apple, Nestle, Mars, Coca-Cola, L'Oreal, Garnier and countless other companies then you have no 'ethical' leg to stand on and you are the worst type of hypocrite."


...followed by this:

"Since I started looking into where my products come from and how they are made, my shopping list has changed one hell of a lot, but as some of these companies are so big, they have shares in so many things it becomes impossible to avoid them altogether."

Sooooo, let's get this straight......you admit that even you can't completely avoid supporting unethical production practices, but you still see fit to criticise people for wanting to do something rather than nothing at all (in this case, choosing free-range over battery)?

"All these things continue to happen and because it isn't on your doorstep you don't want to know. Some hens down the road in battery conditions and suddenly you're all activists. Get your priorities straight"

You're assuming a lot about the rest of us. Were you born telepathic, or is it a learned skill?

If people want to help suffering animals, then that is at least a start at making the world a better place. You really have no right to scoff at compassion, so please - get your priorities straight.
