Look! Hard Boiled Peeled Eggs at Trader Joe's

Last year Elizabeth played the skeptical shopper and intrepidly tested Born Free's hard boiled peeled eggs. (Verdict: too rubbery.) Most of you were slightly grossed out by the whole eggs-in-a-bag thing, and we honestly never thought we'd run across them. But look where they just surfaced!

We were slightly shocked to see these in the Trader Joe's dairy case, nestled innocently between the milk and — ahem — real eggs. Usually TJ's has fairly good taste in their products, but this just seems like convenience gone a step too far.

But perhaps, as Elizabeth points out, these really are good for deviled eggs, and TJ's put them out as a one or two week Easter special.

Have you ever tried bagged, pre-peeled hard boiled eggs?
