Spicy Taco Soup 🌮🍲 now available!

Spicy Taco Soup; it’s not super spicy, just enough for most people. If you like it spicier you can always add more! Try it with some ground beef, maybe a little onion and some avocado chunks? The Taco Soup works well with just about every fat we’ve tried including: butter, beef tallow, bacon grease, duck fat, heavy cream, avocado oil, and more! We’ve already tested a batch to make sure it mixes up correctly and tastes right, so you can order it RIGHT NOW!

In case you missed it last week, we also received the Beef Soup Base. With the Beef Soup Base, we were experimenting around with different flavors: Clam Chowder, Beef Stew, Hot and Sour Soup, and more. We realized that rather than have it with a flavor, why not just leave it unflavored and let people use whatever they like?! So make soup, use it to bake, throw in some ground beef, go really nuts and mix it like a hot shake =); think of the Beef Soup Base as a blank canvas waiting for you to have fun. Without anything added it still has a nice beef flavor thanks to the beef bone broth protein. Works well with just about every fat we’ve tried including butter, beef tallow, bacon grease, duck fat, heavy cream, avocado oil, and more! It’s also passed QA and ready for ordering.

YYou should check out the reviews of Keto Chow, We also get a lot of reviews on our Facebook page and on our SubReddit. Here’s a product review from our site:

My keto kids love it!
I’ve been keto for four years now and brought my family along on my journey, and I am always looking for ways to get some healthier, keto-compliant nutrition into my picky kids. They both love Keto Chow shakes, and ask for one for breakfast on most weekdays. I don’t feel the slightest bit of guilt allowing them to drink Keto Chow because of the fabulous nutrient profile, good quality protein, and healthy added fats they get from the shakes.

Here’s another review, it should be noted that I publish all of the reviews that come in – bad or good – as they are, typos intact. The only ones I remove are spam posts from people wanting you to buy pills to “enhance performance” and such.

Best shake meal ever!!
Since starting KETO, there are some days I just don’t feel motivated to make lunch.. This is the perfect meal on those days! My husband and I both take shakes to church on sundays in a cooler bag. We love to have them for lunch before we get groceries. They are delicious!!

The Fate of the Top Secret Product

To start off: the RTD and the regular Chocolate powder you mix from the bag are EXACTLY the same thing – just one was mixed with 41% heavy cream and pasteurized. Frankly, I like it better mixed by me with salted butter.

Keto Connect just did a review of the “Top Secret Product” prototype we had manufactured back in November 2018. For those unaware: it was a “Ready to Drink” version of Keto Chow with the fat already mixed in, shelf stable for a year, 50% of your daily nutrients in each bottle, cool stuff. We had it made by a local(ish) company but they only had two sizes available:

  • Teeny tiny juice box size – would give you 1/6 of your daily nutrients
  • Massively gigantor 32oz size – half a day’s nutrients

With a ketogenic diet, it’s simply better to eat fewer times during the day – small frequent meals and/or snacking can stall you out and only serves to keep insulin elevated throughout the day. We decided on the big bottle with 1000 calories in it since it more closely aligns with what I would consider a better eating pattern.

I want to pause for a second and point something out: a 1 quart container of regular 2% chocolate milk has 780 calories with 95g of sugars, 19g of fat, 30g of protein. I think it’s odd that most people would think there’s nothing weird at all about someone drinking a 32oz bottle of chocolate milk, but just about faint when they would read the nutrition info on the RTD bottle of Keto Chow. Odd.

So, we had the prototype batch manufactured. We stuck labels on them, so they would look decent, and started sending out free bottles to people that ordered over $200 (and therefore qualified for free ground shipping). It was a good learning experience. We learned how to ship liquid without people knowing what the surprise was, or expecting a certain level of service so when (not if) something went wrong, they were generally super chill about it and just excited to get the bottle. We decided we wanted to do an actual production run and have them come in cases of 6. So I contacted the manufacturer so we could get the packaging printing (in Spain!). And waited.

And waited.

And waited.

Finally, we learned that Tetrapak, the people that make the multi-million dollar aseptic packaging machine, had discontinued support of that machine and it was being sent back to Europe. Dang. So now we’re looking for an alternative solution. Dry powder is still our core competency and WAY less expensive to manufacture and ship; but we want to have an RTD product. It took nearly a year to get the last prototype ran, I expect it’ll take that long again to find another place to do it; ideally in a mid-size package so it can be 3 a day instead of gigantor massive bottles.

As for the original prototype run? They’re all gone. I sent some of the final ones we had left to Keto Connect, mostly because every time they review Keto Chow they seem to mix it up wrong 😂 – wanted them to try it the way it’s MEANT to be!

Here’s our Facebook Live from March 27, where we explain the issue and such (in thinly veiled terms). I’ve fast-forwarded it to the point where we talk about it.

Amazing shakes
I think I’ve tried every low carb meal replacement shake in existence and I was ready to give up. Keto chow is absolutely the best tasting shake I’ve ever had, even compared to high sugar shakes. I feel sated. Truly the best shake I’ve ever had and I don’t say that lightly.

Here’s another review, it should be noted that I publish all of the reviews that come in – bad or good – as they are, typos intact. The only ones I remove are spam posts from people wanting you to buy pills to “enhance performance” and such.

Keto Chow helps stay on course..
I live a very busy lifestyle. Working in construction and real estate I am on the road or job sites where I usually have to rely on fast food or dining out to eat do to limited resources on site. Keto Chow has allowed me to stay on course with my new way of eating and continue my goal to lose weight. I pack 2 or 3 shakes in my cooler and out the door I go! I make my shake thick, it’s Simple, convenient and with the right fat source very filling and satisfying. Thank you Keto Chow!

Most Popular Flavors of Keto Chow – Leaderboard Update

I did a post back in January showing the most popular flavors of the large 21 meal bags – seasons change and so do buying patterns. Here are the current standings for most popular flavors based on sales from January 1 to May 7, 2019.

Of note: last time we had not had the samples available for quite some time so there was a possibility the numbers were skewed towards more “known” flavors. The “Seasonal” Flavors (Pumpkin Spice and Eggnog) showed higher sales percentages.

Anyhow, thought you’d all be interested.

Update: Here are the sales for the different flavors over time, the top 8 sellers in the first image, bottom 8 in the second.

The tastiest meal replacement you can get!
I’ve been keto for 1.5 years. Just tried these for the first time last week. I have enjoyed every single flavor I’ve tried. I have made these with lactose free hwc, butter, avocado oil and mct oil to test the effect on flavors. To my mind all taste really good! I’m going to try a whole month of just keto chow after reading some of the blogs on it. Thanks for the great product!

Recovering, Editing, Experimenting, Answering… 😉

We finished up the Keto Salt Lake show on Saturday. That was a lot of work but insanely awesome, I have a bunch of pictures I need to post when I get the time. Lately, I’ve been swamped with a few things:

  • Editing the recordings of the Keto Salt Lake presentations.
  • Answering the (thousands) of questions on the Facebook advertisement with the new video.
  • Doing experiments with different ways of mixing Keto Chow.

At Keto Salt Lake we had two different cameras running that were recording the presentations in UHD4K (3840×2160@29.97p), I also had an audio recorder plugged directly into the microphone feed so I could get a clean recording of the presentations. In all, approximately 34 hours of video (17 on each camera) were recorded. It ended up being 1.07 TeraBytes of data! I had to put it on my spinning hard drive because the SSD is only 953GB, it’s like living in the past! =)

I have the editing for Friday completely finished and I’m rolling right along with getting at least 2 presentations done and uploaded to YouTube each day. All of them go into the 2019 Low Carb Salt Lake Recordings playlist so they are easy to find and watch.

The commercial has been an astounding success. It’s been pretty frantic around here shipping out orders and answering questions. I see every question from someone as an opportunity: it means they want to know more and put forth the effort to ask. Even if they have the same question that I’ve answered a few dozen times, that means they want to know (and I can use my answer templates for a bunch of them =). The coolest thing is: for every “keto is dumb, you suck, die in a fire” or “sucralose will make your hair turn blue and isn’t as good as eating twigs and bark” comment, we get several dozen comments from people that think the ad is funny, are interested in trying it, and are excited that there’s something that can help them on their keto journey. We are also getting a lot of our customers that answer people’s questions for us. Seriously: that’s super cool! One person asked how many bots we have on there making it look like people like the product. I replied that you only have to do stuff like that when you’re trying to trick people because the product sucks. We don’t “astroturf” (no need) and the product is awesome.

I also had a conversation with a certain person that’s noted for their work treating Alzheimer’s patients with keto, coconut oil, MCT oil, and exogenous ketones. I asked if they see a marked improvement with people supplementing coconut oil – she said they do indeed see a substantial improvement in most cases. I decided to try applying the technique for mixing Keto Chow with butter and use it to mix regular Costco coconut oil (which was quite solid in my cupboard). I used 50g coconut oil (melted) and mixed it up with Keto Chow and warm water. Let it chill in the fridge and there is no separation (see the image at the top of this post, the bottle on the left with the grey lid was refrigerated overnight). It does have a pronounced coconut flavor that I think goes well with regular chocolate.

I also tried mixing up a full meal of Keto Chow with unsalted butter with a LOT less water than typical – the finished volume was 14oz (about 380ml). It was quite thick but still very pleasant – makes it possible to fit in a far smaller container if necessary. That’s the bottle on the right side with the blue lid.

You should check out the reviews of Keto Chow, here’s a “taste”:

First of all, the flavors are terrific when mixed with heavy cream. Using, butter, I’ve found that the fruit flavors (I’ve tried banana and strawberry) don’t taste good at all, but other flavors are terrific. I use Keto Chow to balance my macros and fill my daily calorie needs. Some days, I have only Keto Chow (1575 calories – 3 scoops + 1200 oz heavy cream) but most of the time, I’ll have 600 to 1000 calories of meat and eggs and the rest of my usual 1800 calories will be Keto Chow. I like the flexibility KetoChow gives me for my Keto diet needs. I have a hard time eating 1800 calories of just protein and fat foods. Keto Chow makes all the difference!

Here’s another review, it should be noted that I publish all of the reviews that come in – bad or good – as they are, typos intact. The only ones I remove are spam posts from people wanting you to buy pills to “enhance performance” and such.

I have liked them all
I haven’t tried every flavor yet but every flavor I have tried has been very good. I think raspberry cheesecake, snickerdoodle and chocolate mint are my favorites so far.
