Myrtle Creek Caged Eggs 700g $1/Dozen @ Coles Southland VIC

15623

Just came across 700g cage eggs going for a dollar a dozen at Coles Southland (Victoria). Plenty available as of 10 minutes ago, at least 30 dozens.

Not sure if this applies to any other Coles stores so YMMV.

      I despise cage egg buyers more than I despise the usual murderous carnivore. There are so many other viable alternatives on the holistic/natural market eg Ener-G egg, flax seed etc.

      I can't wait until someone gets the courage to poison all of you murderers. F**king barbaric lame excuses for life, your bodies would serve better as fertiliser.

          Stock will drop for Cage, and another shopper believes Fresh Range tastes no different to Cage.

          To top it off, didn't even share this trick on Ozbargain. The worst kind.

          xmas eve I watched a woman open 2 boxes of croissants, fill one box from the other to fill hers, she got busted. This same woman cut in front of me and decided it was a good time to walk at a snails pace whilst checking her phone. I dont tolerate grazers at the best of times and since it was the xmas rush and promptly told her off

          She was asian

    Thats BS OP, with every product that is listed here (Electronics, food, perfumes, whatever) people often voice their pros and cons, why's and whynot or any associated matters regarding the product, That often influences why we buy, or dont buy the product.

    I just buy whatever's the cheapest, tastes and looks nice (the eggs) after CHOICE did shed some light on misleading free range.

    https://www.choice.com.au/food-and-drink/meat-fish-and-eggs/...

    "Many consumers are paying extra assuming hens are staying in the equivalent of a comfortable bed and breakfast, but instead they're stuck in a crowded backpacker hostel."

    A good find OP but I don't really wanna taste these $1 eggs after buying $1 avocados from Coles the other day…

      Why are you getting negged? It's the truth that the term "free-range" is misleading

      • +7 votes

        Ppl think eating ethical eggs are important or at least they feel better, so they can't stand the truth!
        To me, you should be a vegan if you really care. Do eat living things at all otherwise they're killed for your pleasure or needs!
        Plants are living things too…
        So get starved or stuffed!

        True, but that's why you buy eggs that are certified by a reputable organisation, such as Australian Certified Organic, and not just labeled 'free range' on the box. Different organisations have different standards though, and therefore aren't actually equal. A handy table can be found on Sustainable Table and also on Animals Australia. Choice has also named some brands, but the presentation is a bit all over the shop and can be difficult to navigate, but it's a good (although not comprehensive) list.

        I understand the hypocrisy between caring about free range eggs but not about other things, such as pork, or other types of meat, or consuming fast food which obtain their meat from non-free range sources, but hey, small steps. At least people have started caring about one small aspect.

          That's why I installed CluckAR, it tells you how many chickens they have so you can make an informed choice on how to purchased based on the quality of life provided for the chickens.

    I really dislike caged eggs, as they are unethical. Almost as much as I dislike being told what to do by a post on Ozbargain. I'm curious to see some discussion as to how everyone else feels on these matters, however.

        We are currently talking about a bargain on caged eggs, not plastic. Just sayin'

        • -2 votes

          it felt the same…..eating meat, eating egg (caged or free range), and also to create pollution!

          I am talking about $1 ozbargain deal here, and whether people have soul(responsibility) to what they are doing?

          so here come your guess…..
          do people have soul when they just blindly buy things when it is cheap(says $1) but useless?

          answer: equally none! (like……who cares?? it's cheap!)

    •  

      If you really consider yourself "having a soul" then you wouldn't buy eggs at all. Even free range chickens are cramped and live a crappy life.

      •  

        No, it depends from whom you buy.

          Any eggs from the supermarket are most likely mass-produced and not from a local farm with 20 chickens free to roam around.

        •  

          @username1: I certainly wouldn't expect the supermarket to be stocking eggs from a farm with 20 chickens. There are however good free range eggs to buy at the supermarket, you just need to do some research.

    •  

      So it's not okay to provide the chicken a shitty environment but it's okay to slaughter them?

      •  

        Says who? We're talking about caged eggs, not chicken meat?

        •  

          We're talking about something bigger than just chicken and eggs. Animal welfare. As long as you're eating meat or using animal products, it's no better.

          @username1: You realize that the industry is moving away from caged eggs, because we as consumers are driving that change with how we buy, right?

          Let the status quo control you, rather than question the status quo. You're boring me.

        •  

          @DrDollar: yes that's great, but don't make out you're some god when you're still happy to keep animals imprisoned so they can breed and be killed when you can easily live on a plant based diet.

          It's fine to disagree with caged eggs, but don't make out that you're so much better than people who don't care about caged eggs, because you still support animal cruelty.

        •  

          @username1: You're constantly making this strange assumption that I eat animals. I don't know why.

        •  

          @DrDollar: it doesn't matter, my point is for 95% of people who still eat meat or eggs and claim they are so much better than everyone because they buy free range eggs.

          You're completely missing my point

      not agreeing with caged eggs or pork isnt a valid neg. $1 is a bargain compared to other egg prices.

        No, there are obviously major issues with the retailer, and the product is also defective.

        •  

          Those are just opinions.

        • +10 votes

          @chipstss: The egg is produced by an animal confined in a small space for it's lifetime. Perhaps we should experiment with humans and see how great their productivity is in the same situation?

          The industry is generally moving away from caged eggs, because they are of lower quality and are also simply immoral.

          If the moderators or Scotty wish to remove my comments or negative votes, then so be it. In this day and age however, in true Ozbargain spirit, I hope they instead embrace what is clearly just a product noone should be buying, no matter the price, and condone my comments and negative vote (along with others).

          Why not be part of positive change, rather than stagnate the ages…

        • +13 votes

          @DrDollar:

          Where is your source for lower quality of caged eggs?
          There's even a study showing no nutritional difference across the range.
          If it was more prevalent I.e more studies etc that caged eggs were lower quality I would assume that would always be in our faces instead of the moral stance.
          You're free to have your moral stance but for quality at least back it up with facts.

          @KBZ: The egg broke in my sink. Damn. Defective. Oh well. Buyer beware. Buy free range instead, they haven't broken yet.

          Free range eggs have higher levels of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats (the good fats) and omega-3 fatty acids compared to caged eggs. There doesn't appear to be any other nutritional differences, although free range egg shells also contain lower levels of certain pathogenic bacteria.
