Our family had the opportunity to review an awesome company, Zaycon Foods. Zaycon uses the buying power of many families to negotiatie huge savings on food purchases. They provide fresh from the farm/processor foods and sell it by the case in a super organized sales event. I participated in the Zaycon chicken breasts event and luckily, there was going to be a delivery near where I live. All you have to do is sign up for the Zaycon newsletter and they will send you an email when any event is in your area. If you want to buy, you log on to the Zaycon Foods website, purchase your items, and then mark your calendar for the pick-up date. They usually designate an hour on a certain day that you can pick up your food and here's why: The fresh food comes in a refrigerated truck (or at least it does for meat products) and all you do is drive up to the nice delivery person, state your name, and they load the food into your car FOR YOU. When I picked up my chicken, I had both boys in the van and the nice guy opened up the back, put down plastic in case of leakage (genius!) and loaded the 40 lbs. box of chicken into my car for me. The whole process was less than 2 minutes!
When we got home, I opened up the box of chicken:
It was about four, sealed bags of chicken inside another sealed bag to prevent leaks. I separated it all into plastic freezer bags, maybe 4-6 breasts in each bag. I made a LOT of these bags:
FORTY pounds of chicken! And do you know how much it was selling for at the Zaycon event? $71.60!!!!! That is $1.79 a pound for fresh, never frozen, delicious, 100% chicken with no added hormones, additives, or artificial ingredients!
We have eaten this chicken a few times, in chicken quesadillas and chicken salads and it is fabulous! We all love it!
Zaycon Foods have many yummy foods to offer besides chicken, such as ham, lean ground beef, bacon, cod, salmon, honey, turkey, fruit, and much more, depending on the season!
