Morrisons shoppers have been left revolted and a little gobsmacked by their latest finding on the supermarket shelves… a “wet sack of eggs” which now appears to be available to buy.
In the popular meal deal section in Morrisons supermarkets, huge packs of eggs in a liquid have been spotted and left people baffled.
A Twitter user decided to share their finding and wrote: “My local Morrisons is selling actual sacks of wet eggs.
“This is the most wretched and cursed item I have ever witnessed.”
They added: “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.”

According to the labels on the bags, the eggs come in five packs for £1. However, from the looks of the images shared online, you’ll get a lot more than that if this takes your fancy.
The Sun has since reported that Morrisons supermarkets usually have it prepared for the salad bar but have occasionally made it available for customers to grab directly.
A former member of staff took to the discussion and said: “I worked in morrisons so can confirm that these eggs in a preservative for the salad bar lol.
“We didn’t boil the eggs or de-shell them they came like this. Not sure why they’re being sold on shelves maybe they’re about to expire?
“But now sure why everyone’s freaking out over it.”
Another commented: “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.”

Meanwhile, a Morrisons shopper in a west London store said: “Wimbledon was full of them yesterday.
“They must have found some bags.”
Whilst many kicked up a fuss about the new range of eggs, others were much more positive. One wrote: “Is this real life or am I in heaven?”
Whilst another said: “There are a lot of disabled people who seriously cannot cook & peel hard-boiled eggs.
“It’s a great convenience for them, though I doubt anyone needs that many eggs.”
A spokesperson for Morrisons told The Sun: “These boiled eggs are prepared for our salad bar.
“Sometimes, rather than wasting them, we offer them to customers directly.”
