Don't go cracking this good egg
Eggy is a new product that essentially puts eggs in a can. Produced in Italy, the canister contains six beaten eggs ready to be sprayed in a pan. The product is said to save time and guarantee that you will never come back home with broken eggs in your shopping bag. Unlike boxed eggs, Eggy does not have an expiration date and can be kept unrefrigerated for up to six months.
