88% of Irish adults eat eggs every week according to research conducted by free range egg producer Golden Irish in celebration of World Egg Day on October 14.
Only 44% correctly knew the time it takes to make the perfect soft boiled egg (3 minutes), with men (47%) faring better than women (41%).
27% named the traditional boiled egg as their favourite way to prepare eggs. Scrambled eggs were also popular, making it to second place (23%), while fried and poached matched evenly in third spot (16%).
Brian Eivers, Sales Director of Golden Irish said, "This research shows that the whole country is as crazy about eggs as we are with 54% saying they love eggs and simply couldn’t live without them. Eggs are a fantastic source of protein, iron and vitamins A, B12 and D."
