    FYI:
    After 40 years+ of looking for a freeze dried or powdered egg that was at least edible I found them.
    These are the real thing. I couldn't tell them from a cracked egg.

    Well they say your taste buds fail with age..... [LOL]
    Having our own chickens has spoiled us when it comes to eggs...

    Ii will keep my farm fresh eggs, we gather them daily from our chickens. I had enough powdered eggs while in the military to last me for the rest of my life.

    You do realize I'm not talking about eating them at home?

    I can not even think about power eggs. When I was a kid in the early 60's my dad bought a can of WWII surplus powered eggs. Those eggs?? They did not even work for pancakes. Either my mom cooked with them wrong, or they sucked. My memory just would not let me enjoy any powered eggs.

    Wow! the review on Amazon of these eggs are incredible. Thanks for the heads up. I'm planning a 6 day backpacking trip and these will be perfect for backcountry breakfast egg and cheese burritos.

    I was asking myself the same question. I will just stick with the real eggs at home or camping.

    I guess you guys have never gone out with no refrigeration for extended periods of time. Or maybe you carried a cooler on your back for two weeks.

    I'm sure they are good. Food processing has changed since WWII, but I just could not do it.

    When I did Backpacking. I brought rice, freeze-dried, dried meat, powered milk. and coffee and a can of beer to make a stove. But you first have to empty the can :)

    Has anyone tried the old seafaring trick of waxing the eggs ? ... they last much, much longer that way

    When I started this subject I was just relating my many years of experience with dried eggs. I have no need for them now except as a part of my emergency food pack. I thought someone who presently has a need might find it useful. I can understand that people with a refrigerator, cooler, microwave oven, air conditioner, wide screen tv etc. wouldn't relate to this.

    Most European countries process eggs differently. No refrigeration necessary....I grew up on a farm. Our hens were free. Finding eggs was a matter of hide and seek. I am sure many of our eggs had been laid for days. Never got sick.

    A fresh, unfertilized egg coated lightly with Vaseline will last 6 months easy.

    NO WAY! I can't believe that. I also can't take the chance as I have no sense of smell....go figure and with such a BIG Nose on me too. I will look into the powdered ones though. I love my morning eggs while camping though.
