    They're good! I used to buy them before I developed that egg allergy.
    Daughter rarely eats eggs and husband doesn't care what kind they are unless
    they are brown. I don't know why but he hates brown. So I buy him whatever
    grade AA large or extra large eggs are the cheapest.

    One thing I couldn't figure out... Here in WA it is common to get grade AA
    eggs. When I lived in NY (and possibly Cape Cod, I can't remember) the best
    I could find was A. B seemed to be far more common. I know the only real
    difference is in the look of them. B are fine for baking with and I suppose
    scrambled eggs, but if you want a fried or hard boiled egg you'd want the
    AA. Or so I've read. I just wonder why you can't get AA in NY. Or at
    least none that I saw on Staten Island.

    They are good eggs and usually what I buy. They do taste better, hold
    together when cooking and have a nice deep orange yolk. But then what I
    have to compare them to is ..... The competitors are quite bad. Their eggs
    have extremely thin shells, the yolks are a pale yellow and break easily
    when you flip them. Plus they have no flavor whatsoever. So EBs are much
    better by comparison. Land of Lakes sells a line of brown eggs which I also
    like. They are pretty good.

    I do not know how they rate eggs. However, fresh eggs are great for
    frying and baking. Fresh eggs are difficult to peel when hard boiled.
    For hard boiling I wait a week, after a week or two the eggs peel much
    easier. It has to do with the Ph level and carbon dioxide levels in the
    eggs.

    It is odd. I tried looking it up online and it said that A is the most
    common grade found in stores. That just isn't the case here. Maybe we're
    the odd ones?

    Hmmm... I only remember A and B on Staten Island.

    My husband thinks they taste better than generic grocery-store
    eggs. We're not interested in bothering with fresh eggs, so
    EB eggs make an acceptable compromise of taste/convenience.

    The ones we buy are sourced reasonably locally (elsewhere
    in the state).

    I would presume that their nutrition claims (higher in this,
    that, and the other) are fairly accurate. Why lie about
    something that's so easy to check?

    We have them here - at the top of the egg shelves, along with the
    pasteurized ones - no big deal, I never buy them. I buy our store's
    own brand in Jumbo size. EB commercials are just hype, as far as I
    can tell.

    I daresay we have terrific eggs here in mid-country (my supermarket
    doesn't buy from the bad-publicity-producers) - a yolk is a yolk, to
    me. They are large and intensely colored and they taste good.

    Same here. The ones sold at local grocery stores come from local chicken
    farmers. (And we're not talking huge conglomerates with a million chickens
    in pens.) Sure, I tried Eggland's Best... the only thing I could ascertain
    was a huge price difference. Tastewise? They both tasted like eggs I'll
    pay $2.09/dozen (sometimes lower) than $4.29/dozen any day.
