Like the rest of Scandinavian countries, Norway is usually known for its progressive-mindedness when it comes to gender equality, yet the country's leading brand of dairy products Prior has created a minor controversy after unveiling their latest line of gender-branded eggs, dubbed "Princess Eggs" and "Pirate Eggs" for boys and girls respectively and complete with bright pink and dark blue packagings.
