After yesterday’s post on dying Easter eggs in shaving cream, my friend asked if I thought it was safe to eat the eggs dyed using the super-easy, mess-free method. My guess is no, it’s not safe; don’t eat them. Try your luck on some “mystery Peeps” (who comes up with this stuff?) instead.
You shouldn’t eat eggs that have been used in an egg hunt, nor eggs that have been sitting out (even in a nice, relatively sterile) display for more than two hours. Also, if you use shaving cream or other materials that are not food-safe, don’t eat the eggs. It’s not worth the risk.
If you want edible eggs, substitute whipped cream or Cool Whip for shaving cream and let the eggs sit overnight in the fridge while the color seeps in. Those eggs would be safe to eat. Let me know if you try this.
