WHETHER you like them poached and runny, sunny side up or dipped in by toast 'soldiers', eggs have forever claimed the heart of brekkie lovers across the globe.

And why wouldn't they?

Today is World Egg Day, and it's amazing how many egg-citing facts centre around them.

Aside from containing 11 different vitamins and minerals and having the highest nutritional quality of all food sources - they're a whole lot of fun.

As a kid, we're shown that soldiers like to be dunked in the runny yolk and that bacon is the perfect partner in the ultimate taste combination.

But did you also know...

Japan consumes the most eggs, with each person consuming on average of 60 dozen eggs per year.

China is the number one producer of eggs.

The most expensive "egg" was sold for $5.6 million, called the Faberge Winter Egg.

Egg yolks are often used in shampoos, conditioners and soaps.

There are more chickens living on Earth than humans.

During 2011, the Australian Egg Industry produced about 12.9 million eggs each day.

Who would have thought your average egg could be so, well, egg-cellent?
