Eggs are so basic, they’re borderline boring, so we don’t really think about them a whole lot. Unless it’s a philosophical quest to find out which came first: the chicken or the egg. But that’s a different matter.
So when the TikToker Mauren Sparrow shared what seemed like a fun fact on eggs, it caused such a stir that people said their life was a lie. It all started with someone pointing out that many countries, unlike Americans, don’t refrigerate their eggs. And Mauren stepped in to explain why. Even if the US isn’t the only nation around the globe that puts eggs in the fridge, it turns out that the US Department of Agriculture recommends doing so.
The video went viral with 24.6K likes and almost 2K comments trying to make sense of how their lives are gonna go after this eggcellent bite of knowledge. Let’s see Mauren’s full explanation down below.
