Zaycon Foods 40lb. Chicken Breast Review + Giveaway

Now that I am a parent, I am becoming more concerned about the food that we consume in our home!  My family eats a lot of chicken, and I know there are lots of moms out there who are concerned about finding meat that is free of hormones, additives or any other artificial ingredients.

Enter Zaycon Foods!  Zaycon is a company that wants to help its customers "Buy Big and Save Big." They sell a variety of items including meats and fresh fruits.  All of their products are farm-fresh and sold by the case (great for families who want to split the cost and get a great deal on great natural food).

 Zaycon is unique in that they don't have stores to purchase from, but rather they have Event Locations. Basically, once you have done the FREE (and easy) registration on the website, you will see the times, dates and locations in your area and what will be on sale. Then you just place your order online and pick it up at the designated time and place. Its that easy!

Zaycon Foods will be having events in Missouri and Kansas July 25-30.

Cities included are:
St Louis MO (St. Charles, Fenton, Chesterfield, Wentzville)
I-70 Corridor/ St Louis to Kansas City (Columbia, Jefferson City, Sedalia)
Kansas City MO (St Joseph, Liberty, Lee’s Summit, Grain Valley)
Kansas City KS (Topeka, Leavenworth, Olathe, Lawrence)
Hwy 44 Corridor/Joplin to St Louis (Joplin, Springfield, Conway, Lebanon, Rolla)

More information will be available on Zaycon's website on July 14 at 5:00 PM CST. At that time you will be able to begin placing orders. At the KC events, Zaycon Foods will be selling their "fresh, never frozen" chicken in 40 lb. cases.  The price for a case right now is $63.60 ($1.59/pound).  This price fluctuates somewhat throughout the year, based on the market.  When you register with Zaycon Foods, you will receive all of the info about your local events by email.

I received a case of Zaycon's chicken for review - and wow, 40 lb is a lot of chicken!  If you have a small family (like us - two adults and a baby who can't yet eat solids), I would definitely recommend finding a friend with whom to split the purchase. 

This fresh, never frozen chicken was still very cold when it arrived and we had to give it a little time before we were able to separate it into smaller, more manageable freezer bags.  We left out a portion to make some Pear & Walnut Chicken (a favorite recipe). The meal that we made with just a few breasts of chicken lasted us for two meals, so by my count, our 40lbs of chicken should last us quite a long time!

At the grocery store, we typically pay about $8-9 for 3 lbs. of chicken, that's $3/lbs - and the chicken is not necessarily fresh. Zaycon's price is nearly half that right now - and it tastes delicious! Check out Zaycon Food's website and make sure you enter the giveaway below.

Note from Zaycon:
The savings event will be published on the Zaycon Foods website Thursday, July 14th at 5:00pm central time. (Registered customers should login to see complete details at that time.) For registered customers in an event region, we will send out a short email announcing the new event. Our savings events typically have a limited quantity of products (i.e., what we can transport on our refrigerated trucks). For this reason, we will take orders for a savings event until a certain date or until the event quantity is sold out. We ask our customers to carefully review all event details (product, price, event date, pickup time, etc.) before placing their order.


One My Kansas City Mommy reader will win a $65 Credit to Zaycon Foods (which is enough to get one 40 lbs of chicken)!  If you live in the Kansas City area, you will be able to redeem your prize at the upcoming sale (details above).  This giveaway will end on July 23  at 11:59 PM Central time.
