$8 for eggs!

DD’s neighbor’s baby eats an egg every morning. She finally found some at Sprouts. All they had was the fancy “organic” kind. Can you believe $8 for a dozen?

Wow!

People are giving them away for free on our NextDoor app. (Rural area-lots of people have hens).

Not sure I'd pay that much, but I guess if it were for my baby, I might...

That seems like a typical price for us

Price gouging

She needs to report the store to the attorney general’s office. Way too much even for fancy eggs.

I found something on Fb from the State's Attorney or something about price gauging. If you think a store is price gauging, you should fill out the form. I bet all states have something like that.

8 dollars is not too high for fancy eggs around here.

Eight dollars for fancy organic eggs seems legit for SD. I wouldn't pay it, but I'm sure some do!

I guess I'd give up eggs.

We have an egg company in a near by city and pay $7.00 for 5 dozen. Usually share with someone because we don't need that many. A lot of people have just discovered the place which has not changed its prices, but has limited people to 15 (not a misprint) dozen. I bought 10 dozen and 4 of us shared.

I just bought 2 dozen, pasture raised and unwashed from a friend for $6! I sent her cash in venom. She set them outside the door for me.

We love eggs around here.
