Customers up in arms about infuriating scene inside Coles supermarket

Customers have shared their outrage at two boxes of eggs for sale at a Coles supermarket.

Two boxes of Sunny Queen Farms free range eggs were spotted at the Neutral Bay store in Sydney – a box containing 12 eggs and another ‘value’ pack with 18.

However under closer inspection a customer discovered the ‘value’ tag was a misnomer as they are actually more expensive than the regular pack.

The 12 pack of eggs works out to cost 98 cents per 100 grams, while the ‘value’ 18 pack costs one cent more at 99 cents per 100 grams.

A savvy customer posted a photo of the packs of eggs for sale side-by-side at the supermarket to Reddit.

‘It’s only one cent but come on. ‘Value pack’ come off of it,’ they posted alongside the image.

The 12 pack, 600g of eggs was being sold for $5.90, while the 18 pack was being sold for $8.90.

Reddit users lashed out at the supermarket for the supposed ‘value’ pack actually costing more per 100g than the regular pack.

‘You should report this to the [Australian Competition and Consumer Commission], could be false advertising,’ one person said.

‘Mate, I’ve already called 000,’ came the response.

Another suggested raising the matter with Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, while referencing The Simpsons episode ‘Bart vs. Australia.

‘That’s a bloody outrage, it is! I want to take this all the way to the Prime Minister.’

Another Reddit user suggested dishing out some ‘vigilante justice’ by ‘egging the bastards’. 

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Coles and Sunny Queen Farms for comment.
