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.
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!
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.
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.
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!
Keto Chow Banana Bread
- Mash avocado with mixer
- Add eggs and sweetener and combine.
- Add melted butter and vanilla and combine.
- Add the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly.
- Split into two greased mini loaf pans (3x5 1/2)
- Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes.
(an updated graph is here) We frequently get asked: “Hey, what are the most popular flavors?” (it’s usually prepended with “it sucks that your samples are almost all out of stock” – I agree, hoping to have that sorted out and an unpleasant memory of the past by early February). I knew off-hand what the top 2 were: Chocolate and Chocolate Peanut Butter. We go through those like crazy – in case you’re wondering why neither is the “Flavor of the week” very often it’s because we have to work really hard just to keep those two in stock, while the other flavors we have a really good supply of.
Anyhow, I ran a report and got them ranked in order by amount sold of the large “week” packages, including the Base Powder. I ran it from August 1, 2018 up until today so that the period would include when we had all of the flavors in stock so it would be “fair”(ish) – it’s still weighted towards the flavors we had samples available of… except the Chocolate Peanut Butter. We have never had samples of the Chocolate Peanut Butter available for the current newest version of Keto Chow, yet it’s the #2 seller. I guess it’s good (ok, who am I kidding, it’s fantastic!).
I was surprised that the worst selling flavor is the Natural Strawberry. One of the loudest complaints of Keto Chow is “Why use a “chemical” sweetener like sucralose? why not stevia, monk fruit, or erythritol?” – (seriously, it’s like the #1 question we get, that’s why I have a very comprehensive FAQ to cover it). The Natural Strawberry is an attempt to gauge just how much demand there is for a version of Keto Chow that uses a “natural” sweetener. Personally, I think that the science shows nothing wrong with Sucralose but some people are loudly opposed to it. Anyhow, interesting to see the rankings of flavors. Until we get the samples in, this might be of use so you can see what everyone else is getting =)
We used a 9 donut mold to make these and it’s been fantastic with any flavor of Keto Chow that we’ve tried. To get the nutrition info I made a recipe in cron-o-meter, which is what we prefer for tracking your food. Recipe originally by Cristy Davis from the Sofa King Facebook group (I think Kristina Wells helped too).
Keto Chow Donuts
- 1 tablespoon butter melted
- 1 ounce cream cheese softened
- 3 ounce mozzarella cheese
- 1 serving Keto Chow scoop or packet
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 3 tablespoon coconut flour
- 3 large Eggs
- 1 tablespoon calorie free sweetener powdered erythritol or swerve
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 ounce cream cheese softened
- 2 tablespoons Heavy Cream
- calorie free sweetener
- Mix all ingredients in a bowl
- fill the molds, they will rise quite a lot
- microwave for 8 minutes (or less if you want them more moist)
- glaze and enjoy!
I’ve been calling the place doing the packaging for the Chocolate Peanut Butter samples several times a day trying to get more details on their schedule. Yesterday I finally got some info: 3 weeks estimated completion date. Dang. That puts it in mid-September, and oddly close to International Talk Like a Pirate Day – I guess that’s cool but it sucks that it’ll take so long. The only possible positive is they often are able to do jobs faster than anticipated so it might be a bit faster, Arrrr – just don’ be holdin’ yer breath matey.
Some people are really excited about Pumpkin Spice Caramel Keto Chow (we think Kristina is adorable BTW),
Personally, I’m more excited about the Eggnog =) Regardless of where you stand on the debate, it’s like the holidays came early today! Both Eggnog and Pumpkin Spice Caramel just passed quality control and are available right NOW. This actually is a big moment: ALL of the 18 flavors are now in stock and available in the big bags and everything but Chocolate Peanut Butter is available in the samples. I’m super stoked!
