Sample all the Things! v2.0 finally available

This entry is part 176 of 209 in the series Ketogenic Diet

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!

New Video on Preparing Keto Chow 2.0

This entry is part 174 of 209 in the series Ketogenic Diet

Now that Keto Chow 2.0 is available, I figured it was a good time to do a new video on how to prepare Keto Chow, specifically 2.0 now that there’s a scoop included. I also wanted to show off the cool shirt my wife bought me and the awesome scar on my left bicep I got when I attacked myself with a quadcopter a while ago =)

Now, the production quality isn’t the best and the circumstances were actually pretty bad. I did have a really nice microphone (that was hooked up to my cell phone, strangely enough) this time so the sound quality is considerably better, but I ran into a bunch of issues:

  • My house is undergoing some pretty serious remodeling, now that we stopped making 1.9, so I couldn’t do the video in my house where I have supplies on-hand. Instead, I had to take everything to our warehouse and shoot the video there. I used the backdrop we bought for KetoCon but the field of view was too wide so I rolled over a pallet of blender bottles to hide some of the background.
  • I screwed up doing the blender and ice – only had a little ice left when I did the second take.
  • Then the large warehouse door was opened in the middle of take 2. I didn’t have any more ice so I had to just roll with it.
  • I flubbed what I was saying a few times but couldn’t re-shoot it – whatever! =)

In case you were curious here is the stick blender I was using. It’s really expensive but works exceptionally well. For comparison, here’s one of my earlier videos back before I started doing Keto, I’m less of a man now =)

Salted Caramel Keto Chow 2.0 now available

This entry is part 173 of 209 in the series Ketogenic Diet

OK, it’s the day you’ve all been waiting for – we now have Salted Caramel Keto Chow 2.0 in stock and ready for shipping (though still only in the week size – no samples yet). I didn’t want to put it up on the site until I tested the viscosity and it checks out =). With the arrival last night of Cookies & Cream, that brings the number of flavors we have of 2.0 up to three:

  • Chocolate
  • Cookies & Cream
  • Salted Caramel

We did get a lot of Cookies & Cream and Salted Caramel but I didn’t anticipate how much demand there would be for Salted Caramel, being a new flavor without historical precedent – at least for Keto Chow. I have a new order for more already in the works, but I fully expect we will run out of Salted Caramel before we get the new order, so you’ve been warned =)

Keto Chow Hydro Flasks Available

We also just got (yesterday) 20 oz. Hydro Flask insulated containers with the Keto Chow logo laser etched on one side. They’re available in 6 colors. If you’ve been reading my blog very long you’ll probably know that I’ve been advocating Hydro Flask insulated containers for years and now they’re available with a super cool Keto Chow logo laser etched on one side. Perfect for when you’re:

You need to either pre-refrigerate your Keto Chow for several hours or add in some ice cubes – in my experience, the Hydro Flasks will keep Keto Chow cold for at least 18 hours but the liquid needs to already be cold!  The double wall vacuum insulation keeps hot drinks hot up to 6 hours and iced drinks cold up to 24 hours. 18/8 stainless steel won’t transfer flavors or odors to your next drink. This means your favorite beverage is always pure and refreshing.

The flip top lid should keep your gear nice and clean but please do make sure that you close the lid before you put it in your backpack.

I also took some new photos for the Blender Bottles, Fish Pills, and Base Powder while I was… photo-ing.

Out of Black Blender Bottles, change to “Sample all the Things”

We apparently didn’t even come close to properly anticipating the amount of black blender bottles we would need to have one included in the “Sample all the Things” bundle. We completely ran out and more won’t be here until late April or Early May! So we’re going to go back to having the sample bundle in a bag instead of a blender bottle, which is sad since the Keto Chow logo on the side was really cool! Most of the people ordering the bundles are new customers so they won’t even know what they’re missing. You can, however, still add  a blender bottle separately to your order – we just don’t have black available!

Keto Chow branded Blender Bottles now available in 10 colors

This entry is part 151 of 209 in the series Ketogenic Diet

I’m happy (my wife is even happier!) to announce that we now have 10 colors of Keto Chow branded 28 oz. Blender Bottles (actual, genuine, Blender Bottles – not cheap knock offs) in stock and available. This comes after about 2 weeks of delays due to holidays and snowstorms. They all look pretty awesome with the Keto Chow logo. We’ve had black ones with the logo for a while but reserved those for the “Sample all the things” flavor sampler, now anyone can get them in a wide variety of colors:

We still have around 20 of the regular Pink Blender Bottles without the Keto Chow logo. We don’t have to observe the “minimum advertised price” rules with the ones that have our logo on them, but the plain ones can’t be advertised for any less than $7.79 – but if you order some and add coupon code PINKBB you might see that price drop $2.

“Sample all the Things!” now comes in a Keto Chow branded Blender Bottle

Update: we ran out of the black blender bottles and had to take them out of the bundle, we lowered the price $7 so for the same price you can order a blender bottle on the side.

We finally got the shipment of Keto Chow blender bottles – so all of the “Sample all the Things!” will be coming in the cool Keto Chow branded Blender Bottle. We won’t have enough of them to sell apart from the bundle until the beginning of January, unfortunately. So if you really, really want a Blender Bottle that has the logo on it, you can (a) wait until January (b) Get a Sample all the Things, steal the cool bottle for yourself and give one of your old ones with the samples in it to a friend for Christmas =)

We’re selling Blender Bottles now

A couple months ago we ordered some Blender Bottles with the Keto Chow logo on it. The plan was we were going to package the “Sample All the Things!” inside a blender bottle, it was going to be awesome. The bottles were supposed to be ready next week. Unfortunately, it appears our stuff was in a container being transported on a Hanjin freighter so it’s unknown when we will actually get them. They offered us a deal on un-branded Blender Bottles to tide us over; so today I drove down to the Blender Bottle corporate headquarters and picked up an Excursion full:

Bunch of Blender Bottles

We bought a bunch of extra black ones and have packaged all the “Sample all the things!” bundles we had handy in them. So starting today: if you order one, you get a Blender Bottle too! We figure you’re going to need one anyway =)

We also have a bunch of other colors on sale for $6 each. Check it out
