Zaycon Foods is now Zaycon Fresh, and they have new ordering events leading all the way up to the best one: Boneless skinless chicken breast in July! (Back down to $1.69/lb this time, y’all… so plan ahead and start making room in your freezer.)

What’s a Zaycon?

If you’re not familiar with Zaycon Fresh,

  • They sell fresh meat products by the case.
  • Head to local pickup locations at a specified date and time to pick up your order.
  • They schedule events across the country.

How much meat was that, again?

  • You get 36 lbs of bacon at $3.49 a pound = $125.64 + low food tax.
  • You get 40 lbs of boneless skinless chicken breast at $1.69/lb = $67.60 + low food tax.
  • You get 40 lbs of 93/7 ground beef at $4.49/lb = $179.60 + low food tax.
  • … and more — they also have hot dogs, kielbasa, pork sausage links, and more events open.
