Recently, I received an email from Mariano’s about their exclusive release of Naturally Smart Eggs.
Mariano’s is a grocery store local to Illinois, and I wrote a post about the opening of a store near us a couple of years ago. They are an amazing store with an incredible produce, bakery, salad bar, and meat section.
Mariano’s continues to redefine the traditional grocery store by introducing an exclusive collection of new, health conscious products. The latest Chicagoland exclusive product is the new Naturally Smart Eggs which feature True Grade Hen2Home Technology.
These eggs are currently available at Mariano’s – three weeks before they debut nationally. This new egg technology introduces a new standard of quality to the fresh egg industry.
How the new eggs work: Each Naturally Smart Egg is marked with a Use By Date so the consumer knows exactly how fresh the egg is, Brand Identification for a safety stamp of authenticity, and a Trace Code which easily enables the consumer to find the exact farm the egg was sourced from by visiting http://www.naturallysmarteggs.com/.
How cool is that?! Isn’t technology crazy awesome? You can actually find the farm an egg came from!
When I got the email about these new eggs, I was immediately intrigued. First, I love that each egg has a Use By Date on it. I am a little bit weird about expiration dates. I know some foods stay fine past their expiration date but I cannot eat a product after it’s expired. I rarely even eat leftovers so there’s no way I’m going to eat a food past its expiration date.
I am weird enough about expiration dates that I even write the date that I open my coffee creamer on the bottle.
I’m the only one that drinks coffee in our house so I never finish a whole bottle before it goes bad. I drink it for exactly ten days after I write the date on it and then I pitch the rest. Hey, we all have weird food quirks, right?
I also thought it was really cool to see where your eggs come from. I thought this would be great for the kids. They would love to go online and put the number from the egg into the website and see where it came from.
So, we took a trip to Mariano’s. Luckily, we have one that’s only about 15 minutes away.
We bought a carton of the x-large eggs.
They have large and x-large eggs for only $2 a dozen.
While we were there, I was super excited to find the new Yasso bars and Arctic Zero ice cream!
We bought the toffee crunch Yasso bars and the vanilla maple Arctic Zero. I have been looking everywhere for those Yasso bars and am a little too excited about eating one tonight.
We stopped at the smoothie bar on the way out and Jaden got a berry smoothie to try. They have a bunch of great smoothie flavors and I can’t wait to try some of the other ones!
I eat eggs for breakfast every day and this morning was no exception.
I loved the Nationally Smart Eggs and loved that each one has it’s own little expiration date stamp.
Check out the Naturally Smart Eggs exclusively at Mariano’s in Illinois and nationwide soon!
