They expired 2nd Nov but it seems such a waste. Will they still be edible? I fancy a fried egg sandwich
but i am a bit neurotic about use-by dates
IF THEY FLOAT AND YOU EAT THEM YOU WILL DIE.
if they sink you wont
now that's drama!
i just remembered being too scared to go to the toilet in the night....
if it floats to the top, it means air has penetrated the shell and it will be rancid. if it sits at the bottom, but with the tip pointing up, it will be fine but about to turn. if it lies on its side on the bottom, it will be perfect.
with some weird effect on it
i'm still sticking to use-by dates tho!
you infuriate me. why would you believe a number on a piece of packaging over your own brain?
i'm like it with everything, if the date has passed i don't eat it. i guess i've had food poisoning too many times! i realise it's neurotic i just can't bring myself to overcome it! lol
im sure you could get over this. remember that a third of all food in this country goes to waste. that is shocking.
(assuming we're talking about squits'n hurls) from out of date food, unless it's both fresh and quite obviously unsuitable for consumption. Your nose is a surprisingly good guide.
Most food poisoning comes from improper handling, storage, or preparation of food; if you're getting a lot of it, that's a better place to start.
it's an interesting test
i would eat them
If they have they will be fine. I'd eat them any time this month.
Im going to risk it.
do the test!
Soft boiled with bread soldiers?

don't let us down now pal.
will you just do the test and tell us what happens please?
you need really fresh eggs for poaching. Otherwise the white doesn't really wrap around the yolk and it's a massive disapointment.
we used to eat all sorts of stuff back in the war, including eggs that had lept for years in some cases.
Once you crack an egg open it will be pretty obvious whether its edible or not.
if when you crack it open there is an eye staring up at you
would be to try and give it a good life. take it to the cinema, have birthday parties for it. all the while hoping that it never learns to communicate, lest it should ask you why god has allowed it to exist.
hunched down behind an overtunred shelf, a gun in one hand, the egg in the other. "i can't take any more,' it moans in its strange tongue. and you: "and this knowledge, it burns in my head; why did you pick me? no-one should know the things you have taught, little egg-eye-wavy-hand man."
the police creep up behind the barricade only to find you with your gun in your mouth and brains spattered across the condiments; your other fist clenched tightly in death. they prise it open to find a quivering mass of blood, viscous jelly and shell
i didn't buy an egg sandwich at the shop and now i wish i hd
see if you start puking
