Chocolate Peanut Butter Keto Chow is back in stock!

Our “supplier” happened to be in the area today so they brought a single pallet of Chocolate Peanut Butter week packages today! It’s not even close to the full order (that’s coming tomorrow or Friday) but it’s enough for you all to get some – so go get it!

Quick note on Chocolate Peanut Butter availability

Our stock of Chocolate Peanut Butter Keto Chow 2.0 ran out over the weekend but we are getting more in later this week. We may get it as early as Wednesday though it’s now looking more likely to be either Thursday or Friday (July 27 or 28). We’re also getting quite low on Chocolate 2.0 and may run out of that just before we get more, which should be sometime next week.

Flavor of the Week July 24-July 30: 10% off sale on Strawberry 2.0

Late last week we received a shipment of Strawberry 2.0 – enough that I think we have enough to do our first sale on 2.0! We’re running a 10% off sale on the 21 meal “week” package (because we don’t have the samples… still) – normally the price is $64.00, with the 10% discount it’s $57.60 – you won’t see it as a separate “discount” in the cart, the price will be lower from the outset.

As far as the Strawberry 2.0 flavor goes, it’s a marked improvement over 1.x. Strawberry Blast 1.x wasn’t really one of my favorite flavors, the consensus was that the flavor wasn’t strong enough – and I agreed. It was an OK base for adding in other flavors but needed more strawberry flavor. With control over flavoring with 2.0 I was able to amp up the strawberry, now it’s similar to the taste of Strawberry Quik (and the additional coloring makes it even look right instead of a pale pink). But hey, you don’t have to take my word for it, check out the reviews of 2.0 Strawberry!

Sale July 17-July 23: 30% off sale on all remaining Keto Chow 1.9*

We’re continuing last week’s sale on v1.9 – it’s all 30% off. We have a few “Samples” in various flavors, we also have the large “Base Powder” on sale – 30% off at $175 compared to the old price of $250.

*while supplies last – once we run out of the 1.9 it isn’t getting restocked.

Flavor of the Week July 10-July 16: 30% off sale on all remaining Keto Chow 1.9*

The original reasoning for doing the “Flavor of the Week” sales was to move along flavors we had too many of. It’s done a good job of that =). Usually, the process for deciding what flavor to put on sale each week involves looking at the shelves and saying “Yep, we have too much Snickerdoodle, do that one!”. Right now we’re getting down to the last few packages of version 1.9 so we’re just going to put the entire v1.9 product line on sale – it’s all 30% off. We have a few “Samples” in various flavors, and Chocolate Fudge in the “Week” package. We also have the large “Base Powder” on sale – 30% off at $175 compared to the old price of $250.

*while supplies last – once we run out of the 1.9 it isn’t getting restocked.

I was asked if we’re going to be having a sale on v2.0 anytime soon. We’re actually a bit worried we’re going to run out of the v2.0 stuff (I’m looking at you: Salted Caramel!) before the next batch of 2.0 is made. That’s why I’m not running any advertising, or coupons or any promotion until we (1) get the freaking samples going, grrrr…. (2) have a massive inventory such that we are able to handle a spike in orders without running out of existing customer’s favorite flavors.

Banana and Mocha arrived, ALL flavors are in stock (in the week bags)

Just got back from picking up Banana, Mocha, and Chocolate Keto Chow 2.0.1 – we were almost out of Chocolate so I’m super excited to be able to say: we have all of the flavors of Keto Chow in stock right now (in the 21 meal “week” bag). Strangely, this is actually the first time we’ve had all of the flavors available at the same time (thanks, vanilla =) – hence the “party” picture. Now I just need to figure out how to get the samples going and things will be awesome!

Vanilla and Salted Caramel Keto Chow 2.0.1 now in stock

This entry is part 177 of 178 in the series Ketogenic Soylent

Good news: Salted Caramel is back in stock and we finally have Vanilla available! Both are version 2.0.1 – I’ll get to the minor version bump in a bit.

Following the fun we had with Vanilla before, when we got today’s batch of Vanilla Keto Chow we pulled a bag from each lot and tested them to make sure the viscosity and flavor were correct – they passed! We did the same thing with the Salted Caramel (it’s standard procedure now). Anyhow, today was Vanilla and Caramel; tomorrow we are supposed to be replenishing Banana and Mocha with Chocolate coming Friday or Monday if all goes well. All are a smaller batch to tide us over until they can deliver the full order of 2.0.1.

Speaking of 2.0.1: It’s a relatively minor change, the only difference is a change in the amount of iron – previous versions of Keto Chow provided 100% of the RDI (18mg a day) if you did 3 meals of Keto Chow. This is the recommended amount for pre-menopausal women; but for post menopausal women, or for men, that amount is borderline high. 40mg a day is the short-term upper tolerable limit, but I didn’t want to be causing a slow build-up of iron in men (especially in myself =) if Keto Chow was used exclusively for all meals over months. The downside to this change is that many women will need to supplement their iron using something like this, this, or this in order to prevent anemia if they use Keto Chow exclusively for all their meals. An occasional meal with red meat will also work (and let’s be honest, you could really go for a rib-eye right now – amiright?). The new packaging notes this change, also the packaging is actually accurate now – no more “label correction” sticker!

If you are curious, you can read the entire Keto Chow changelog/version notes – going back to the very beginning with version 0.7 =)

Quick note on flavor availability and stock levels

As I expected, Salted Caramel went out of stock yesterday =( I just got off the phone with the manufacturing place and they’re going to start packaging more Caramel tomorrow (we’ve been working on the next order for quite some time); followed immediately by Vanilla, Banana, Mocha, and Chocolate (which are still in stock but getting low). I’m hoping it goes smoothly and we’ll be restocked on all the flavors sometime in the next few days.

Flavor(s) of the Week(s) June 19-(undefined): 15% off sale on all Keto Chow 1.9*

The original reasoning for doing the “Flavor of the Week” sales was to move along flavors we had too many of. It’s done a good job of that =). Usually, the process for deciding what flavor to put on sale each week involves looking at the shelves and saying “Yep, we have too much Snickerdoodle, do that one!”. Right now we’re getting down to the last few flavors of version 1.9 so we’re just going to put the entire v1.9 product line on sale – until further notice, it’s all 15% off, the sale will end when we run out =). We have a handful of Strawberry “Day” packs, a few “Samples” in various flavors; and Chocolate Fudge, Snickerdoodle, and Strawberry in the “Week” package.

I was asked if we’re going to be having a sale on v2.0 anytime soon.

Sample all the Things! v2.0 finally available

This entry is part 175 of 178 in the series Ketogenic Soylent

We’ve had a lot of fun with Keto Chow 2.0 Samples. The short version of it is: the machine that was supposed to be making the samples isn’t working right and we’re having to manually package the samples until that gets resolved. You can read more about the issues on this previous post.

Last week we made the determination that we needed to do something to get a workable solution in place, especially since the supply of v1.9 samples is almost entirely gone – along with the old sample bundle. So I contacted the manufacturing facility and arranged to get part of the bulk powder that’s been waiting to be made into samples. For now, we’re going with simple zipper snack bags and a printed label – it’s kinda ghetto and costs significantly more to produce compared to the cooler packaging that they’re supposed to be in… but it’s a viable solution FOR NOW. I used the real barcodes on the ghetto labels so you will be able to scan them into Cron-o-Meter and other tracking apps, which is cool. It should be noted that we won’t be offering individual samples of the different flavors outside of the bundle yet, if you want to try Keto Chow 2.0 you’ll have to get all of them in the bundle. The only exception to this is Chocolate 2.0 – the manufacturer had a couple hundred samples so we have those for sale on the samples page.

Anyhow, the Sample Bundle for 2.0 is available – and we have a preponderance of black Blender Bottles so we’re back to packaging the sample bundle with a Keto Chow branded Blender Bottle. It’s everything you need to get started with Keto Chow! Fun fact: the vanilla sample is included in the bundle – we’re still a few weeks out on getting the fixed Vanilla 2.0 in large bags, so this bundle is currently the only way to get vanilla Keto Chow 2.0!
