Zaycon Foods review

Zaycon Foods Chicken Review

I was asked to do a review from Zaycon Foods in exchange for 40 lbs of chicken, Yes you heard right - 40 lbs - so let me walk you through the steps.  First of all, you set up a free account on their website  They credit your account and you pick an event that is close to you to pick up your chicken. Let me tell you -  I never heard of Zaycon Foods until I was asked to do a review - the process was rather easy and if you encounter any problems on their site, the helpful staff is right there to help you through any problems you may encounter.

So I picked my event, which as you can see, is at a bowling ally.

 As I looked around, I could see a line forming and the Zaycon truck parked in the parking lot.

Here is the Zaycon truck!

Here is our wonderful delivery man who took the chicken from the truck and put it straight in our trunk no fuss - no muss - we didn't even have to get out of the car - just showed him our receipt and he just gave us our chicken and we were on our way.  It took much less time than standing in line at a grocery store.  

Here is our chicken packed wonderfully -  I thought these pieces were going to be small and covered in fat but they were huge boneless chicken breasts without much fat on them at all. The bag that they are sealed in held all the chicken juice and when all was said and done didn't even drip at all. I have to say I was super impressed with the size and the packaging of this chicken. Would I order again? Oh yes I sure would!!!

If you are interested in checking out how to sign up for a free account go here.  This has been a very different experience but very expedient and productive. As I mentioned before, my family was also along on this chicken journey and when all was said and done I still got my son to school on time!!!  Also wanted to let you know that Zaycon Foods sell chicken, beef, turkey, sausage, bacon they have a variety of meats.  Although I received my 40 lbs of chicken all the experiences and opinions are 100 % my own.

Here is all my chicken I received that I repacked when I got back home!

    Alpha and Omega 2 review

    I was given a copy of Alpha and Omega 2  for an honest review and all opinions are 100% my own.

    This was a really good family movie - my son loved it.  How could it miss with him though since he is an animal lover!  Kate Humphrey and their three wolf clubs (Stinky, Claudette and Runt) are happily preparing to celebrate their first winter together when the smallest cub, Runt, mysteriously disappears.  They now must go on a new journey way across the wilderness to find and bring back Runt before the winter snow blocks their way home.  It's their greatest adventure yet - it is filled with kid-friendly action and suspense as well as plenty of funny moments. While their adventure takes them all over the place and does not exactly end as planned, Kate and Humphrey discover that "home is really where the family is."

    My son loves any movies that have animals involved and this one was no different, although when we watched it I didn't realize that we haven't seen the first one now I'm going to have to see if I can find the first one now!  I really liked this movie as well.  The animation was really great, characters were cute and very adorable.  The movie is really great and while the pups face some hardships along the way in trying to rescue their brother but at the end everything comes together as the pups realize family is everything!
