Pub’s pickled eggs competition is no yoke

An eggs-traordinary competition has been organised at a Frome pub.  The Griffin, in Milk Street, is hosting the contest – nicknamed the Eggs Factor – to find the ultimate pickled egg.

The idea began as bit of a joke, after pub staff realised customers were getting through more than 25 pickled eggs a week.  So manager Charlie Thomas decided to run a competition to raise money for Dorothy House Hospice.  She said: “We get through a jar a week, which is quite a lot of eggs and as they are so popular in the pub, we thought it would be a great idea to get people to make their ultimate egg.”

Anyone can enter the competition, which will be held on Easter Sunday, April 12, at the grand Egg-Off.  Only authentic eggs with genuine ingredients will be eligible to enter, and they will be judged on their taste, overall appearance and labelling or packaging.

Prizes include a gold leaf gilt egg-cup and T-shirts.  There will be a panel of celebrity judges, which have yet to be announced.

It costs £2 to enter and people can put forward as many eggs as they like.  Anyone interested in taking part can call Miss Thomas on 01373 467766.
