Now it’s the other way round. Apparently market research shows we think that white eggs are somehow ‘manufactured’ and brown ones ‘healthy’ so the white ones have gone the way of the dinosaurs. I confess it’s not something I think about on a day to day basis, but it’s proving to be a problem for Maggie. She says:
“I’m organising some Easter activities for children. One activity will be decorating eggs – but where can you buy white eggs these days? All the supermarkets sell brown ones but you need white ones for dyeing and colouring.”
You do indeed. Can anyone think of anywhere round Greenwich where they still sell white eggs?
