At Safeway, I buy the large size Sno White Eggs which sells for $2.83 a dozen. I almost never buy the large size Lucerne Eggs which sells for $3.00 a dozen, unless they go onsale. Is there a difference in taste or quality between the two brands?

I just got some eggs from across the border @ $7.99 for 60 eggs. I got 120 of them for $16 bucks.

If you go to Costco in the US they are even cheaper, $6.99 for 60 eggs.

I need lots of eggs because I train, my breakfast includes 5 egg whites so it makes huge diff. Something to think about for egg lovers.

I don't need 60 eggs. I eat only 2 a day. But thanks for the tip!

Just wait until you have to try and scoop out fooseball tables out of one of those giant bulk bins and try and put the product number on the GIANT twist tie.

Lucerne is a div of Safeway and the eggs can come from many diff plants and Sno White is a trade name from a farm in Manitoba that sells to Safeway and sometimes it's products are sold under the Lucerne name.

http://www.buymanito...-safeway/dairy/

When 2 different products are virtually the same the retailer can up the price on both and then discount one of them in order to make it look like they are offering the consumer a deal but in fact they are not.

Edit. I have never found a taste difference in any eggs unless you truly get farm fresh/organic/free range (ie expensive) ones.
