Lemon Meringue – some bad news and some good news

OK, bad news first: the 50,000 individual packets of Lemon Meringue is now sold out. It actually sold out during our live stream last night. Since it was conceived as a limited edition that we would evaluate how it was received by the community, we have always anticipated it would sell out sometime in August or September; and it did.

Now for the good news: based on the overwhelming feedback received on the Lemon Meringue, a short time ago we decided to bring it back in the large bulk bags. We are also going to be bringing back the individual samples. Typically this is something that we only announce when we actually have it in-hand and ready, but a lot of people are quite sad the lemon has sold out. 2020 has been bad enough, so we are letting everyone know ahead of time that:

LEMON IS COMING!

“Ok, so when is it coming? Can I get it NOW???!!!” is the next logical question. Unfortunately, No. It’s going to be some time before we have the large bags available, it will be even longer before we have the individual meal samples again. I could give an estimated date but there are a huge number of variables that we cannot control that may impact the delivery date and that estimated date would effectively be worthless, the best I can say is that we’re hoping to get it before 2021. The packaging has even been ordered, so I have the fun “mock-up” of what the bags will look like.

As soon as we get the lemon bags in our grubby hands and test it to make sure it’s the same as before (I did keep a few of the first batch to validate the new one when it comes) – it’ll be up and available for purchase on the site. We’ll announce the availability all over the place.

Keto Chow leaderboard update: most popular flavors of Keto Chow in May 2020

Now that we have a brand new Lemon Meringue flavor, let’s look at The Other Flavors of Keto Chow and which are the most popular. This time around we have data on how many or sold a month, using data from the last 12 months (or since they were introduced, in the case of the Chocolate Peanut Butter samples that came out fewer than 2 months ago). We also have data for the 21 meal bulk bags and the samples, surprisingly, the leaderboard differs somewhat between the sizes.

You’ll notice (as we do) that some of the flavors, especially ones that are more “seasonal” don’t sell as well as others. Going forward, we plan to move some of these into seasonal availability once the current inventory of the large bulk bags runs out. Root Beer Float will be available in summertime. Eggnog and Pumpkin Spice Caramel will be restocked in the fall. The Savory Flavors (which are meant to be made hot) will also be restocked in the fall to be available for the cold months of the year. If you’re like me (Chris) and are a bit of a Root Beer fiend and an Eggnog aficionado, be sure to stock up and take advantage of the long shelf life of Keto Chow so you won’t run out of your favorite flavors.

🍫🥜 Sample size of Chocolate Peanut Butter now available

Chocolate Peanut Butter sample after testing

Been wanting to try Chocolate Peanut Butter Keto Chow but didn’t want to get a full 21-meal package? Today you can order the sample size! Note that the packaging is quite different: it may LOOK like a protein bar, it’s not =)

I honestly didn’t think this day would ever arrive. The last time we had samples of Chocolate Peanut Butter was version 2.0.0 (nearly 2 years ago) because the fat in the peanut flour would clog the packaging machine. The key to ultimate success was going BACK to the same style packaging we used so long ago but abandoned for the more “looks like a packet of protein powder” style we currently use. One of the reasons we switched to the other style packaging for the rest of the flavors is that this style causes a lot of confusion – people think it’s a protein bar and we will be getting that question again. I’ll take fielding those questions over the “why don’t you have Chocolate Peanut Butter samples?!!” questions we have gotten daily for the last 2 years (which is understandable – since it’s amazing!).

We will not be putting these into any of the bundles for a few months. This was done as a small run “proof of concept” to see if it would work (one of a half dozen such tests that were unsuccessful, until this one!) and we don’t have enough of them to put into the bundles. A larger quantity is in process but will take several months to arrive. I expect we will have sufficient quantity to put into the bundles by August or September 2020. Until then, they are available for purchase separately.

Most popular flavors of Keto Chow – update May 1 – Sept 30, 2019

We have 21 flavors of Keto Chow – that’s a lot of flavors! For people that are new to Keto Chow it’s a bit overwhelming – that’s actually the reason our “Starter Bundle” only has 6 flavors, so that we can get people started without them needing to “drink from the firehose.” I’ve published posts like this in the past but we’ve found that some of the flavors (Pumpkin Spice, Eggnog, the soup flavors) don’t do very well in the warmer months so I figured it was time to do a new “what are our most popular flavors” post. You can see the Aug-Dec2018 and Jan-May2019 posts for historical context if you wish. Of note: the #2 best seller is Chocolate Peanut Butter, this is despite the fact that we do not have samples available of that flavor (and likely will not ever have them because the machine that makes the samples gets clogged by the fat in the peanut flour).

Here is a tabular representation of the graph above:

Chocolate17.81%

This is not a drill: Snickerdoodle 21 meal bulk bags are back in stock

Just in time for Friday fun: we just received the single-flavor 21 meal bulk bags of Snickerdoodle Keto Chow. Of note: this is the new v2.1.2 with the increased vitamin A and the return of “instantized” protein powder so you shouldn’t have problems with clumping when it’s mixed. OK, enough of that, go order yourself some Snickerdoodle and when it arrives you can use some to make a few of the recipes that call for it.

Printable sticker sheets for labeling your Keto Chow storage containers

OK, this is a weird one but whatever. Miriam has been putting our Keto Chow into some storage containers – others likely work just fine, these are the ones that fit how tall inside our cupboards are (and they fit 1.5 bags of Keto Chow).

I saw some Keto Chow users that have been cutting out the picture from their bags and using those to label their containers, I thought I could help make more “fancy” – here are some sheets you can print out, either on a regular sheet or on sticker paper. I looked into having them printed but it was CRAZY expensive and would take like a month. So I hereby empower you to print your own!

Savory Soups sample bundle now available

We’ve had the four savory soup samples for some time that you could order individually but we were waiting to get the bags to make the bundles. Turns out they came 2 weeks ago and were put into the back corner without telling me. Oops!

The bundles for the savory soups are now available! It comes in a cool bag *AND* you save a whopping $1.25 over ordering the samples individually because we can make a bunch at the same time, efficiencies of scale and all that (which is also the reason you cannot customize what’s in the sample bundles). Anyhow, you can order them right now.

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.

Announcing the newest flavor of Keto Chow!

We are very happy to announce the newest flavor of Keto Chow and are excited to note that we have immediate availability so you can order it today for quick delivery! It’s been in development for some time and we’re going to be able to check ALL the boxes:

  • It’s completely Vegan – as in zero dead, rotting, baby animal corpses. It’s even better than typical vegan food in that no tractors were used to squish any animals at all during the production!
  • It’s Paleo.
  • It’s Keto – well, it has 0.00g of total carbs so there you go!
  • It’s Organic (ish) – depends on if your definition of “organic” is the traditional meaning that we’ve used for hundreds of years (containing carbon), in which case it’s most decidedly “inorganic”; or if you subscribe to the completely made up meaning of “organic” that suddenly popped up within the last few years and thumbed its nose at science and the dictionary in order to be a cool marketing term, in which case it’s absolutely pesticide free, fertilizer free, and all that jazz.
  • No Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO free).
  • Completely Fat Free.
  • Completely Sugar Free.
  • All Natural“.
  • Gluten Free.
  • Contains no artificial sweeteners, no natural sweeteners, no sweeteners of ANY KIND.
  • Contains no flavoring, “natural” or artificial.
  • Contains no coloring, “natural” or artificial.
  • Contains no calories.
  • It is high in sodium, potassium, and magnesium though.

As we said, you can order it today for quick delivery!
