Itís a chicken egg, so it comes from a chicken. Itís enclosed in a shell, and you donít eat that part. Can be prepared in a variety of ways. Avoid eating raw.
It tastes pretty good, especially when itís not old. It actually has two parts - yolk and white. The yolk is the part that is bad for you but has more flavor, apparently. An egg experience can be completely different depending on its preparation.
Egg became an official snack on April 21st 2012.
