    Yikes. You can get pasta like A for only double the price of B. What the heck is that over 10x the price.

    the egg yolk colour has nothing to do with "a better egg" only what the chicken was eating.

    I dunno if it's already been said (there are a lot of comments and I don't have that kind of time), but the color of an egg yolk is only indicative of the pigments in the food that the chicken that laid it ate, and not a measure of quality, tastiness, nutritional value, or cost. You can add orange pigments to the feed given to a caged hen (I hated just typing that) and get eggs with yolks that are that beautiful orange-yellow. But they will be the same as if that hen had been given feed without the added pigments.

    I've answered correctly on every product on about 6 of these videos so far and I'm not an expert at any of those foods and I'm not even tasting them. So this is kind of pointless.
