Poached eggs have come out as the lead­ing way to have eggs cooked, ac­cord­ing to a re­cent New Zealand sur­vey. In the The Cof­fee Club sur­vey, 37.5 per cent said their favourite way to eat eggs is by hav­ing them poached.

“It doesn’t sur­prise me to see that poached eggs are the most pop­u­lar, as our own cus­tomers buy thou­sands of poached egg dishes ev­ery week,” said The Cof­fee Club New Zealand di­rec­tor Andy Lu­cas. “We thought it was likely to be that or scram­bled eggs, which came out as the sec­ond favourite way for peo­ple to have their eggs.”

Ac­cord­ing to a re­cent study in the UK, how peo­ple like their eggs can even re­veal things about their per­son­al­ity and sta­tus. Re­searchers found those who like their eggs poached are out­go­ing, lis­ten to up­beat mu­sic and are hap­pier. They are also more likely to have two chil­dren and no more than one sib­ling – and are more likely to be a woman than a man.

Scram­bled egg eaters on the other hand are more likely to be in man­age­rial or se­nior-level jobs and to own their own home. They are also more guarded.

The Cof­fee Club sur­vey re­vealed over 50 per cent of Ki­wis eat eggs two times a week or more. This is sup­ported by The Cof­fee Club’s own sales fig­ures. In the year from March 2015 to Fe­bru­ary 2016, over 1.2 mil­lion Hen­ergy SPCA ap­proved eggs were used in their stores and they use an av­er­age of 2.3 eggs for ev­ery minute of the day.

“Ki­wis love their eggs, which is why they make up such a large part of our break­fast and brunch menu,” said Andy. “It’s clear from these sur­vey re­sults that their pop­u­lar­ity isn’t go­ing to wane anytime soon!”

The Cof­fee Club opened its first store in New Zealand in 2005 and now has 58 stores all over the coun­try.
