Eggs That Dazzle

Marans Egg Yolk

When you purchase a dozen mixed rainbow eggs from Rowdy Hog Smokin BBQ, the Marans eggs will undoubtedly catch your attention. Renowned for their beauty and size, Marans eggs surpass those of regular hens. The shells are thick and sturdy, and when cracked open, the bright orange yolk bursts with vitamins, protein, and healthy fats. Unlike the runny and lackluster yolks found in store-bought eggs, Marans yolks exhibit “muscle tone,” forming little orange domes that rise proudly from the egg white. It’s no wonder that Marans eggs were James Bond’s preferred choice as mentioned by author Ian Fleming.
