Ok, cookie dough and meat I can understand; but eggs? Ewww.
Delicious protein. Now all they need to do is add in the salt and pepper. Or how about a PICKLED egg-log?
They have those here too, or at least the used to. Fast food restaurants used them.
What is so surprising, isn't this what they have been using in the airline industry for years.
Have you ever had an egg McMuffin? McDonald's uses the same thing.
No, they don't. McDonald's is one of the few fast food places to use almost real eggs.
What the heck is ALMOST REAL EGG. It is real or not real.
They showed this in "Clerks II" hilariously disgusting
Sorry this is not weird enough ... try again.
haha its actually pretty convenient!
I'll have a tube of egg, please...
haha havn't seen them in a while. My elementary school canteen bought them once, but our parents wern't impressed.Admittedly it was a rather poor choice for a school in an italian village where there were more hens than kids O_o'
Contrary to what a previous poster says, McDonald's don't use those.Well, they don't in the UK, at least.
They don't use them in the U.S., either. They use a metal ring on the grill to make the round shape, and they crack a real, raw egg in the middle.
Ew my roommate has these it is so gross. You don't even have to refrigerate it!
WTFJS WHERE HAVE YOU GONE??
The funniest part of Frederick Wiseman's documentary Meat involves this product.
I woudent touch that thing even if im on a deserted island with no food !!Only god knows whats in there !
Aww, you "woudent"?
what the FUCK japan?!
My question: HOW did they do it?
It certainly does look like something I'd expect to find in a fast food restaurant that does egg muffins on the menu. Certainly saves on cracking eggs perhaps. And yes, they used these in Clerks II.
What are they called? I WANT HARD.
I wanna see the chicken that made that possible
Actually, Egg McMuffin's are made out of real eggs. I worked at Mc Donald's before. They crack an egg into a metal ring on the grill. It's actually the only thing on the breakfast menu that contains an actual egg. :P
I don't understand why everyone thinks this is gross.. give me a few packs of English muffins, some cheap sliced American cheese, and some cold cut ham and I'll be happy for weeks!! Where can I buy this?? I'm going to start checking my local Asian markets.. maybe they can order it for me.. I'm kinda lazy so it would cut down on cooking/cleaning time.
i dont see a problem with this though. i put boiled eggs in my ramen and have no patience to wait. this is perfect.i think its a good idea
You all do realize that this is made of real eggs? There's a youtube video that covers how it's done http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u1-R8mizqRc
This has been used for ages in the food industry to reduce the risk of salmonella and such due to using raw eggs. Most sandwiches and salads you come across in a supermarket will be made with this, and many delis use them too to comply with health and safety regulations (at least in Spain and the UK).
This type of product was used in the airline catering industry for decades under the trade name "What-an-Egg". Special wire slicers were used to make uniform cuts. The commercial versions were 2' in length. The product has been replaced with 5gal pails of hard boiled eggs which have a higher quality,but loweryield.
