Danish Machine Makes Long Egg Packaging

Ever wonder if hard-boiled eggs come in packaging that resembles a long cookie dough tube? Well it does, according to the packaging blog Box Vox. The Danish machine called the SANOVO 6-32, aka the long egg machine, was first created in 1974 to produce "egg pieces approximately 20 centimeters long with a regular center of yolk surrounded by egg white of an even thickness." You probably haven't seen it in stores (it's more a "food service" item than a consumer product). Or we can just keep pretending that long eggs come from really long chickens. [via @EIT]
