Zaycon Foods, a Northwest company that sells larger quantity boxes of fresh meat and vegetables at a volume discount, is coming to the Oregon and SW Washington area in a few weeks, delivering chicken breast!
Boneless, skinless chicken breast — (4) 10 lb bags of bacon @ $1.89/lb = $75.60
They are also offering 80/20 flash frozen hamburger patties for $2.99/pound (pink slime-free) and all beef hot dogs for $2.99/pound, but it looks like the hot dogs are already sold out for some locations.
Zaycon is coming to the Pacific Northwest next week, so hop on over to Zaycon and place your order!
Is $1.89 per pound for chicken breast a stock-up price? Depends. If you are able and willing to chase the deals, you can get it for $.10-$.20 per pound cheaper periodically with grocery store loss leader sales and/or using a store coupon. With fuel costs increasing, I suspect grocery stores prices will start looking more like Zaycon’s very soon. Some of you are willing to pay $4 more for Zaycon chicken for the quality and the convenience.
We have purchased Zaycon’s chicken breast in the past and have been very pleased with it. The chicken comes in four 10 pound bags, so it’s fairly easy to split with friends and family.
It’s important to note that you will have to “process” the chicken before you cook or freeze it. It takes about an hour for one person to rinse, split the breasts, trim the fat and put the 40 pounds of chicken in freezer containers. It does not look like Foster Farms chicken you buy at Costco straight from the box (but it does after a few seconds of work on your part ). The chicken breast is comparable to grocery store chicken — no hormones, additives but it is not organic or free range.
For those of you who are new to Zaycon, you will go to the delivery location at the specified time, roll through the parking lot and pick up your boxes of meat. You don’t have to leave your car.
