    Has anyone tried it?

    I used to receive packages padded with ghost poo (styrofoam peanuts). For the last year, everything has arrived packed in AIRPlus. It's that "bubble wrap" with large squares of plastic filled with air.

    The squares are very difficult to pop and eggs aren't all that heavy. So it looks like it will support eggs. My son just bought a medicine cabinet that came packaged in that stuff and a dozen eggs aren't much weight compared to a wooden cabinet.

    I don't want to try it, though, if anyone has already had a bad experience with it.

    What do you all think?

    I just received eggs today from Alabama (I'm in Battle Ground, WA). All in perfect shape. Each was individually wrapped in the small bubble and then nested inside the Airpacs. Seemed to work very well.

    The Airpacs should work fine as long as each individual egg is wrapped in bubble wrap.
