    Good stuff here. I try to keep up on new things in the marketplace. I don't eat them all, I just like knowing about them.

    These look interesting. Not free though only “free” with a 50 order lol. But I saw them on Instagram and never seen such flavors of cashew butter so they caught my eye. qatpbum3qe9m.jpeg

    Not a new product, but new to me. I was watching a TV show about restaurants and tourism in San Sebastian, and stumbled on a segment about traditional Txuleton steaks in Basqueland and Galicia. Txuleton (Chuleton in Spanish) are ribeyes from retired dairy cows that have been put to pasture for a year following menopause to fatten up and chill out. Some people claim these are the best steaks in the world and that the meat is way more flavourful than traditional beef cattle typically slaughtered at an adolscent 28 months. Consuming retired dairy cows strikes me as a more sustainable way to eat beef.

    I have ordered some retired dairy rib eye steaks for delivery on the weekend. Hoping I like it. The trade off for more flavour is less tenderness. I ordered imported Txuleton from Basqueland, but now see there are farms that offer mail order for free range organic retired dairy cow meat in the UK, US and Australia.

    The Basque retired dairy cow steaks arrived and look beautifully marbled. Will be cooking the ribeye on Saturday when a girlfriend who lives part of the year in Spain comes over. Doing the rumps next weekend for a dinner party. I really hope I like this. The beef flavour from old animals is meant to be considerably stronger, so hoping it is not an acquired taste. I would great to find a more sustainable way to eat beef.

    Tried the birthday cake no cow bars from the free sample pack (still available if you didn’t get yet)

    10/10 wow it was really really good. I really like the no cow bars now. When I first had them years ago they were so bad I had one bite and threw it out but they have improved so much. Really good right out of the fridge. They remind me of old formula quest bars. mj4d6bncq8y7.jpeg
    They are really sweet which I like because I have a major sweet tooth.

    They send 5 extra to tell them what you thought so you make 5 to try them lol.

    This is in the frozen food section at Trader Joe’s. It’s really weird when you open the bag...they are little frozen pucks of mashed potatoes. But, they’re actually pretty good for a lazy side dish. I add milk, butter, and chives and they’re perfect.

    Also tried target brand version of Lara bars. Pretty good. I’d say better than larabar. I like the sea salt addition. They are more chocolatey too.
