  1. They’re boiled eggs in a bag and people are freaking out. The liquid is water, otherwise they’d all be a mangled mess. You’d think no one had ever seen a supermarket selling off their relatively short-code catering or bakery supplies before. During Covid lockdown mk1 a number of large chains were divvying-up their huge bakery counter flour bags into smaller quantity bags for retail sale as “bakery gate” wiped out their standard supplies, and counters were closed. This isn’t really noteworthy, weird yes, noteworthy no.
