O Organics Grade A Brown Eggs (Safeway)
O Organics is the store brand of Vons / Safeway.
I’m often skeptical of supermarket brands, but the flavor of these eggs is heavenly when hardboiled. The yolk is light yellow and tastes rich. The white part is thin, which is irrelevant to me, but I do appreciate that there are no speckles of blood in the white as I’ve seen in other organic eggs. (I’ve been told that blood speckles don’t correlate with hens’ happiness, but I’d rather have no red in my eggs.)
More expensive than Trader Joe’s organic eggs, but these taste better and, I must repeat, have never shown any traces of blood, unlike other “crunchier” brands of organic eggs.
“Whether it’s your favorite omelet or your tried-and-true egg salad recipe, you can count on O Organics for the freshness you need to cook your best. USDA organic.”
The label says the eggs are from “free-roaming” chickens which probably is as industrially meaningless as “free range.” I don’t have the luxury of being fanatical about strictly PC food. As long as the seller shows an effort, I’m buying.
“Organic from the Source. Why choose O Organics Eggs? The hens that lay O Organics eggs are free roaming with access to the outdoors, shade, fresh air, and direct sunlight. They receive fresh water, lots of exercise and wholesome organic food that’s grown without the use of pesticides or herbicides.”
