I used to have a passive scrund. It was cleared recently, due to a strange chain of events. What’s the scrund?
1. This puzzle has nothing to do with the puzzle of similar name by Grand Master Gregory Coke, owner of The LTPF list of LTPFs, run in October 2010.
2. Do not try to solve the strange chain of events. I'm not sure myself how the heck I got the strange chain of events, really.

Is the title relevant? Not particularly-I come up with the titles before posting my puzzles, and realized I didn't really like the title I had, and changed it to something I had earlier.

Is it relevant that it was cleared recently? Slightly. Could it have been cleared a year ago? Yes. 10 years ago? Well, yes, but not by the strange chain of events. 20 years ago? Ditto.

HINT: Foods are related to my scrund. And a slight *BLOOPER*, the scrund could not have been cleared 20 years ago, but only for the reason that I am not yet 20 years old.

Is the food a
Vegetable?
Fruit?
Meat?
Fish?
Poultry?
Sauce?
Bread-based?
Candy?

Long shot - I recently heard an interesting story that cured a passive scrund of my own - that insects or insect ingredients are used in a lot of the food we eat - for example, red food coloring, and as a flavoring (I think) in some sauce - sorry don't remember the two or three other examples. Was it this?

Did your scrund have to do with eggs in general? Or with chicken eggs specifically?

Did it have to do with whether or not the eggs we eat are fertilized by a rooster (they're not) ?

Is a particular way of cooking the eggs relevant?

RECAP: I have a scrund about soft/hard boiled eggs. I could successfully cook an egg like this, and still have the scrund. The white, yolk and shell are not relevant. How it is processed for delivery is yesishly relevant.

So the actual reason we use egg cups is to hold the egg upright while we eat it, right? I've only ever used them for soft boiled eggs - do people use them for hard boiled eggs, too?

**********SPOILER**********
I once thought that egg cups were like normal cups, albeit tiny ones. However, one day I was doing some sort of Google search that led to a link that read 'Brains are Delicious'. Intrigued by the odd title, I clicked on it, and this led to the realization that those tiny cups were in fact for hard or soft boiled eggs.
Thanks go to Shez, Doriana, Noel, and Beachbum for working on this puzzle, and especially to Noel for the solve.
