Was very surprised to see this in the store! I’m familiar with the Chino Valley brand of organic eggs (I’ve bought them at Erewhon and elsewhere), but the label on the box this time was in Japanese! It says organic, no agricultural chemicals.
The difference? Only the price it seems. This 6-pack is $3.99 at HK Super, while the same number of Chino Valley eggs in English packaging costs $2.99. At California Market, this 6-pack costs $4.29.
When I’m at a store and I really need eggs, I have no choice but to pick this up if these are the only organic eggs they carry at the moment. But, wow! A dollar more expensive to have your label in Japanese, and there’s not much additional information except “antibiotics, steroids and hormones were not used.”
