    I have a plastic square egg carton from wal-mart. I found it in the camping/outdoors section.

    eggcartons.com carries the square-er type. 3x4 eggs, rather than 2x6. Still rectangular though.

    Wow, I remember these from when my family was in the commercial layer business. We used these for some customers. This was in the late50's/early 60's. I always liked those cartons and though they made more sense than the 2 X 6 style.​
