I recently bought the Eggland boiled eggs in a bag for the first time.
This was not totally by choice. On my last tent camping trip I was really jammed for time and I had to shop for my groceries on the same morning I was leaving. So my shopping was a done in a bit of a panic.
Anyway, they taste just fine and were very helpful to have along. As I recall, the price was not outrageous.
Anyway, you might want to consider them if you use boiled eggs and want to make things easy on yourself.
I use them occasionally. I'm not much of an egg person, so I rarely have them at the house. I like using them when I want to make up tuna fish salad for my lunches at work. I keep most of the ingredients for it on hand at work, so it's very easy to grab an apple or two, a package of the boiled eggs, and a loaf of bread and put it all together.
Nothing hard about boiling eggs, but I rarely think about it ahead of time. And a big plus for not having to peel those stupid things!

I think they're a little expensive for every day use, but I agree they are worth the extra for camping.
I say that because all I've seen lately are 1/2 dz packages. When they first appeared around here they were in dz packs and it wasn't worth the difference to boil and peel your own, but then they disappeared and reappeared in the 1/2 pack at a higher price.

Joelc - I just found them to be a nice convenience when camping, like my PAM spray, instant coffee, as well as canned soup, vegetables and fruit.
We don't use any of those things regularly when at home, but I would not camp without them.
Next trip out in September, I will likely buy the boiled eggs in a bag again, but not before then.
I can understand the PAM. the eggs are probably fine, but can't get out of my mind the use of preservatives. When I go camping, if hard boiled eggs will be on the menu, I boil them at home. I find it easy to peal the egg if you warm the shell in hot water before peeling. Then when you break the shell, get some water onto the egg. I guess they can't be worse than a "TV" dinner.
joelc - Good point - Like I said, I was in a hurry. And I was leaving for a three week stay. So I was buying whatever I saw that kind of fit my needs. And these seemed to be a good fit.
The next time I am in the store I will check for preservatives. I guess I figured it was the refrigeration combined with the vacuum sealed foil pouch that made for the shelf life, not preservatives. I never had time to read the label.
