Morrisons are selling giant bags of ‘wet eggs’ for £1 and people are confused

Confused Twitter users have discovered an unusual item in Morrisons – and it's left them feeling cold inside.

A social media user using the handle “Strumpet” shared a photo they had taken in their local store.

In the snap, they showed a number of huge blue plastic bags filled with numerous hard boiled eggs in a yellowish wet substance.

Strumpet captioned the post: “My local Morrisons is selling actual sacks of wet eggs.

“This is the most wretched and cursed item I have ever witnessed.”

The large bags were being sold from the meal deal section and were marked for sale for just £1 each.

In a follow up comment, the poster wrote: “Also it’s in the meal deal section, which implies this is considered lunch ?

“Does this count as a main, or a snack??

“I have so many questions, and no answers.”

The bizarre post quickly went viral, with over 111k likes, 20k retweets and over 3k comments.

Laughing posters questioned who would buy the eggs.

One person wrote: “Who drinks 50 boiled eggs for dinner?

“What kind of creature would subject other living things to the after smell of themselves having guzzled 50 eggs?”

Another added that they had seen a similar thing in their local Morrisons

User Matt said: “Wimbledon was full of them yesterday.

“They must have found some bags.”

While “Smashleigh Bunnikins” added their theory to the thread.

They said: “Ours has been doing this since March – I’m assuming it’s something to do with the self serve salad bit being unavailable/underused.

“Also big laughs at them pretending there’s only five eggs in there when it’s clearly a bag of 48.”

Many other posters were equally confused as to why the bags always said there were five inside, when there are a great many more than five shown.

One person said: “Why does it say five boiled eggs when clearly there are at least 20?

“Why can I smell this through the screen?

“Why does the preservative look like urine?”

“Five boiled eggs, the rest are decoys,” joked another.

Many Twitter users said that they would buy the big packs of eggs.

One such person wrote: “Throwing away all my dry eggs – I won’t be needing you any more.”

Another commented: “I want to nonchalantly eat this for lunch at work, just once.

“Just casually lift my egg sack out of the fridge and start powering through them at my desk.”

“Is this real life, or am I in heaven,” added a third.

Another person pointed out that the use by date read September 11, but the poster had uploaded the photo on September 16.

Luckily, an ex-Morrisons worker came along to clarify the situation.

She wrote: “I worked in the deli at Morrisons briefly when I lost my job because of Covid.

“It’s the stock that would usually be on the salad bar.

“I spent many an hour putting huge sacks of grated cheese into pots.

“Thankfully I never got egg duty.”

Well, that’s that solved then… we suppose.
