Updated 6/25/18: Zaycon has suspended operations and is no longer in business.
The one thing I hear from readers all of the time is “Is there ANY way I can save on meat, poultry or produce for my family?” Well, unless you find a great sale, you are pretty much stuck paying the price on the shelf. I work hard to save on other items so that I can use those savings to help offset the cost of my meat and produce. Well, that was the case until I discovered Zaycon Foods. I recently had the chance to sample Zaycon Foods chicken. It came in an EXTREMELY large box — and comes FRESH from the farm. When my family received our box, we simply split the larger bags into smaller ones that work for our family. That has made it so simple for us to grab one baggie of chicken breasts from the freezer. I will admit that it has been so wonderful to have this in the freezer as a “stockpile” if you will. I am all about convenience. So, what is Zaycon Foods and how does this work? Zaycon Foods sets up events in various locations around the country. You can purchase high-qualitiy healthy food products at retail prices. You will make your purchase in bulk – which is how you save. Of course, not all events are in all areas, but you can sign up at Zaycon and they will notify you via email when they will be in your neck of the woods so that you can arrange to stop by and pick up your meat. Since this is a fresh product, they are not available in all locations at this time — you can check this map for information. The thing I love the most about this company is that the meat is fresh. It comes direct from the farmers and ranchers. Their chicken has no added hormones, additives or ingredients — which is so important! I have been so impressed with the quality of the chicken. We’ve had several meals using it from just grilled breasts to chicken salads and it has cooked up perfectly for us each and every time. To find out about events near you, all you need to do is go to Zaycon Foods and create an account (use the code PennyPinchinMom as your referral ID). Once your account is set up, you can click on View My Account and you will instantly find any events that are a region that is close to you. There are actually a couple of events available in Kansas City this week. The item being offered is chicken. As a reminder, this product comes in bulk — 40 lbs at $1.59/lb + sales tax as applicable. If you are interested in making a purchase, you order MUST be placed by July 25th. Here are the locations: Grain Valley, MO: July 27th 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm — exact location to be determind by July 23rd
Liberty, MO: July 28th 9:00 am – 10:00 am – exactly location to be determined by July 23rd One final thing I wanted to mention about Zaycon Foods is that they warranty their food. Have you ever had someone warranty food for you before? Here is exactly what they state: We warrant that all food products sold and delivered by Zaycon Food will be of acceptable quality, fit for consumption and free from spoilage and damage. To this end, we ask each customer to open and inspect each case of product the same day they receive the product from Zaycon Foods. If, upon close examination of the contents, the customer finds the product to be of unacceptable quality, we will arrange the return of the partial or complete order and will refund the payment accordingly.
