If you’re in Las Vegas, NV; Henderson, NV; Gilbert, AZ; Southeast Gilbert, AZ; or Mesa, AZ you should feel pretty darn special cause you’re getting a product that isn’t available anywhere else. Costco now has 2 special 6-packs of the Morning Moo’s/Blue Chip foods that they are selling.  In one 6 pack they have “breakfast items” and in another 6-pack they have “dinner items.”  The 6-packs contain 6 #10 cans. Some of these items are SO dang good I can’t believe they are freeze dried!

In the Breakfast Pack they have the whole Freeze-Dried Strawberries (scrumptious!), Creamy Wheat, Buttermilk Pancakes (amazing!), Scrambled Egg Mix (I use these all the time), Imitation Bacon Bits (only 1g of fat!) and the Potatoe Shreds. There’s over 200 servings in these 6 packs, and they have up to a 25 year shelf life.

I like to add a bit of cinnamon to the pancake mix and let the batter rest a moment. I served some of these to a girlfriend who has 9 people in her family and she says that she’ll never make homemade again.  Also, if you recall, I’ve shared with you how great the strawberries are. They are WHOLE, not flakes. You can eat them right out of the can or make syrup or pie filling or jam with them. The creamy wheat is really hearty. I enjoy it! (See my fried creamy wheat recipe below.) I have served the potatoe shreds and folks can’t believe they are freeze-dried. I use them in casseroles as well. And I use the scrambled egg mix to make quiches, all kinds of scrambled eggs, and even French Toast. (Dang, do I sound like a “foodie” or what?)

In the Dinner Pack they have the Creamy Potato Soup (yum), Imitation Beef Bits (TVP), Potato Gems (I eat them RAW–they are THAT good), Honey White Bread and Roll Mix (Divine and idiot proof), Freeze-dried Sweet Corn (great right out of the can!) and the Vegetable Stew Blend.

I use the corn, potato soup and bacon bits all in the same soup for a chowder like soup. The vegetable stew is just plain vegetables like cabbage, tomato, red and green bell peppers, celery, potato dices, and onion. So it’s REALLY versatile!  The Potato Gems are already flavored with butter and salt. So I LOVE eating them raw, in their freeze-dried state right out of the can!  And when I want to make them I just have to add a little warm tap water. So dang easy.

These foods are just “food storage” to me folks. I use them everyday. But even I don’t get them in this Costco priced 6-pack. Only you folks in NV and AZ will get them. Stop in to one of these stores this week and get some samples. If I remember correctly, Blue Chip demonstrators will be there all the ding dong day for 3 days, so call your store to see which days this week.

In addition to the 6 packs they will also be offering the oats and the Morning Moo’s milk at these same stores as well. (The oatmeal is a great deal and has an awesome shelf-life!)

If you’re not in AZ or NV, you can still purchase the products in Utah Macey’s stores and most of Utah’s Central and Southern Wal-Marts. The good news is that I that I have an inside track as to when they’ll be coming to other parts of the country. I do know that there are plans in the works, folks, so just be patient. I also just spoke last week with a new internet store that will be selling the less common Blue Chip products nationwide at low prices, so I’ll let you know what that comes on line too.

As you know, Preparedness Pro doesn’t sell anything, and we never will sell any products. But I am in LOVE with these products. I’ve compared them to several others and I’m just happiest with these. As a result, Blue Chip found out what a fan I am and asked me to develop some recipes for them. So I did and I’m sharing some of the recipes with you.  Enjoy!  PS: just got an update on the pricing for you folks.  The breakfast pack is only $53.99 and the dinner pack is only $48.99!  Considering it has 200 servings in each pack, that’s only 25-27 cents per serving!!!  Crud, just the strawberries alone retail in my area for about $25!  Go get em’ AZ and NV!

Corned Beef and Veggie Stew

½ cup of Morning Moo’s Vegetable Stew Mix
6 cups of Water
1 teaspoon of salt
½ teaspoon of pepper
½ teaspoon of caraway seeds
1 can of corned beef (broken into bite sized pieces)

1 cup of Morning Moo’s Creamy Potato Soup
1 cup of Morning Moo’s freeze-dried Sweet Corn
2 cups of Morning Moo’s milk (in powdered form)
4 cups of chicken broth
1 teaspoon of smoked paprika
2 Tablespoons of Morning Moo’s Bacon Flavored TVP
½ teaspoon of fresh thyme leaves
¼ cup of diced of red or green bell peppers

Melt in Your Mouth Bread Sticks

3 cups of Morning Moo’s Honey White Bread and Roll Mix
2 Tablespoons of instant dry yeast
1 cup and 1 Tablespoon of warm water
½ cup of oil
3 Tablespoons of lecithin granules
Salad Supreme Seasoning
4 Tablespoons of melted butter

Dissolve yeast in water. Add the bread mix and mix well. Add the oil and lecithin granules and then knead for about 7 to 10 minutes. Dough should be elastic and soft. If dough is too stiff, add a little bit more water in 1 tablespoon increments.

Spray a large piece of plastic wrap with non-stick cooking spray and cover the dough in a bowl with the non-stick spray side down. Allow dough to sit in the bowl for about 30 minutes at room temperature, until dough has doubled in size. Gently pinch off 2 tablespoon pieces and with your hands roll into small bread stick shapes. Dip in the melted butter, and then place on a large cookie sheet. Continue until you’ve used all of the dough. Allow the dough to rest on the baking sheets at room temperature for 15 more minutes. Generously sprinkle the dough with Salad Supreme. Bake rolls in the oven at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes.

Fried Creamy Wheat

Prepare Morning Moo’s Creamy Wheat according to directions on the package, but omit about ¼ of the water. When finished cooking mixture should be cooked nicely but very thick. Place prepared creamy wheat in a non-stick bread pan. Allow to cool at room temperature and then place in refrigerator overnight. In the morning, release the loaf of creamy wheat and slice into ½ inch slices. Place on a hot skillet greased with butter and fry on each side about 2 minutes. Top with your favorite syrup and butter.

What about Houston? We need this stuff in hurricane alley. Our Costco had Morning Moo milk for about 3 months. But last time I was there it was no longer stocked.

Debbie · September 29, 2009 at 3:45 pm

Will they ever be coming to Costco in Canada? I sometimes feel like a third world country up here LOL. If we do go to the US, for a visit, I sure have a hard time getting my hubby to go to a grocery store… you want to do what? Lucky people in NV and AZ.

Sabrina · September 29, 2009 at 4:03 pm

Is this one of those limited time things, or will these products be there indefinitely? I know sometimes Costco just has things for a little while. I live a couple of hours away from the Phoenix area, but I’ll make a special trip up if I need to do it soon.

Kellene · September 29, 2009 at 5:06 pm

I believe it will there so long as it’s a good seller. This week is simply their “roadshow” in which they are demonstrating the product.

Kellene · September 29, 2009 at 5:06 pm

Nope, because their number on selling product has corn syrup in it. And corn syrup is illegal in Canada. So I doubt that it’s a priority for them. bummer.

Kellene · September 29, 2009 at 5:07 pm

The Costco there should still carry Morning Moo’s milk. I just checked on it.

Believer · September 29, 2009 at 5:45 pm

You are making my mouth water. Any idea when these combinations will be in Provo? Do you have an idea of the cost? They sound delicious.

Kellene · September 29, 2009 at 6:22 pm

They aren’t bringing the combos here soon. But you already have access to some of the best prices on these products at Macey’s.

Jessica · September 29, 2009 at 7:06 pm

Thank you so much for the wonderful recipes. They look scrumptuos! I’m planning a trip to macey’s asap!

Kris · September 29, 2009 at 8:27 pm

The saying is true: it is not what you know but who you know:)

A Texan · September 30, 2009 at 7:55 pm

Do any retail stores sell Morning Moos in small sizes? I’d like to taste some, and to get my family to do so, before committing to a large quantity. If not, does anyone know if any of the Costco stores in the San Antonio area have, or are planning to stock, any of this product?

razr · September 30, 2009 at 11:22 pm

I have checked out “Blue Chip” and on their prices and your knowledge….this is the place for me…they are on my “favorites”…being in Montana I know how the gal from Canada feels……left out!!! there is a sam’s (100 mile +) and I do shop there…during my fall stockup….I would love it if BC would get involved with Sams Club or give us a break on shipping….that would really help…I would be willing to spend a lot of my winter stockup money for free shipping or at least a break……what do you think????

Converting A Spendthrift · October 1, 2009 at 1:29 am

Can I find this in Maryland?

Kellene · October 1, 2009 at 2:19 am

Not yet…bummer!

Kim · October 1, 2009 at 3:31 pm

Someday there shall be a Costco less than 2 hours away. And in that Costco there shall be much Morning Moos. And it shall be good. And there shall be much rejoicing.

Until such time, there is Sam’s. With it’s overabundance of usefule prepping tools, such as inflatable 6-foot tall jack-o-lanterns and wine by the pallet.

Kellene · October 1, 2009 at 5:01 pm

Kim, thank you for the VERY healthy laugh for the day!! (Don’t underestimate the wine though. It may have a place in your medical preparedness. I never drink the stuff, but I do have a couple bottles of whiskey for serious congestion.)

Kellene · October 1, 2009 at 10:04 pm

PS- just got an update on the pricing for you folks. The breakfast pack is only $53.99 and the dinner pack is only $48.99! Considering it has 200 servings in each pack, that’s only 25-27 cents per serving!!! Crud, just the strawberries alone retail in my area for about $25! Go get em’ AZ and NV!

Shawna Schwarzmann · October 1, 2009 at 11:13 pm

Ok that just made me super hungry and super excited! I’m ready to go and shop. I’ll have to see if my hubby will take me out to Mesa this weekend! ~S

jamie · October 2, 2009 at 12:43 am

I have been using emergency essentials for the hardware for prepping. They seem to have very reasonable on prices. I always get my stuff on time or earlier when shipped. They seem to me to be good on price point. They use “Mountain Home” and “Provident Pantry” for most of the freeze dried items. Do you have any knowledge of those brands if so what do you think of them?

Kellene · October 2, 2009 at 3:25 am

Jamie, as soon as I say this, I’m going to catch heck for it…but I dont’ care for Emergency Essentials at all. I feel like they charge WAY too much for their stuff, that their staff is unknowledgable about preparedness as well as their products, etc. However, I know the original source of manufacturing for Provident Pantry and for the most part, it’s pretty good. Mountain House is way overpriced though to me and doesn’t always taste as good as some of the other stuff I get.

jamie · October 2, 2009 at 6:27 am

Well I agree with you on most of the food items are a bit pricey. That’s why I shop their sales items I just wasn’t sure of the quality. I have gotten some good buys on the hardware items, and I have you for knowledge. After 13 years in the military I don’t think I’d take an MRE for free and I know I’d never would pay for one. What I am looking at is some sales items in #10 can from Provident pantry. So it looks like it’s a good buy. I really enjoy making my own pantry items, with the tips you have given me. So I won’t beat you up. LOL

Woodirae · October 2, 2009 at 7:12 pm

I was about to ask this same question! What your thoughts were on Provident Pantry, EE is having a sale for October for a year of food for what seems to be a low price.. but if it is not yummy then what good is it! Hmmm I agree Mountain House is expensive, as is Thrive. But the quality is good .. 🙂

Really courious wbat you feel about Provident Pantry, I wish I had a access to Blue Chip closer!

Marie · October 2, 2009 at 8:55 pm

Just bought them in Gilbert. The samples were great. WHAT A STEAL!

Woodirae · October 3, 2009 at 2:50 am

Cancel any concern about Provident Pantry, I went ahead and went with Blue Chip, Food to Store, and Shelf Reliance. The Shipping through Blue Chip was not as bad as I expected AND it is UPS which is better so I dont have to have someone drive me. I could not pass up the scone mix! 🙂

Woodirae · October 3, 2009 at 2:56 am

For any of you who have not tried the Morning Moo’s Milk… my goodness this is NOT the powdered milk of yesterday.

I opened up the Chocolate milk mix, and LOVE it! I did not expect chocolate, smooth, creamyness!

I am hooked! 🙂 If all the products are this good…..

I think I will give my Northern Nevada Costco a call and see if they can do what Vegas and Henderson are doing! It cant hurt can it?

Kellene · October 3, 2009 at 3:56 am

I LOVE the scone mix!!!

Woodirae · October 4, 2009 at 10:48 pm

Well ask and you shall recieve… check Costco Online Folks… a Years worth of Shelf Reliance – Thrive , shipped to you and it includeds a Manual wheat mill.. $799.00 delivered. Now I am going to shelf reliance to price it all out, but it seems like a great deal, Esp for those starting from scratch! Still calling them about morning moos . 😉 Costco Online should be available for everybody!

razr · October 5, 2009 at 1:53 am

Woodirae Thank you Thank you!!!!! I just went on Costco site and ordered …Keep us posted especially now that I am a Costco member…still have stuff coming from blue chip….but could not pass up some of costco’s deals thanks again…

Woodirae · October 5, 2009 at 3:28 pm

I priced it all out at Shelf Reliance and it came up to $1299.oo and that is not including the wheat mill. WOW.. I ordered mine today as well.

"We call her Mom" · October 7, 2009 at 1:15 am

"We call her Mom" · October 7, 2009 at 1:18 am

Costco in St. George also has the volcano stove with the propane hookup regulator for $99. It’s a road show and will be there until Sunday, Oct. 11th.

razr · October 9, 2009 at 11:35 pm

I hate to admitt it but I am very unsure when it comes to grinding and using wheat could you recommend any books that I could find online to help me out here…I would love to learn…I think that very shortly thgis will become very important.

Kellene · October 9, 2009 at 11:41 pm

The Amazing Wheat Book or Passport to Survival.

lilly · April 20, 2012 at 3:29 pm

lilly · April 20, 2012 at 3:30 pm

They have the best freeze dried strawberries….

Becky · April 20, 2012 at 3:53 pm

Once you open a #10 can and use some of the product, how long will the rest of the can last? Thank you.

    Kellene Bishop · April 20, 2012 at 4:01 pm

    18 months for taste, texture and nutrition.
