Krusteaz Bakery Style Meyer Lemon Cookie Mix and Meyer Lemon Pound Cake Mix

Hey! Krusteaz Meyer Lemon mixes spotted at a Fred Meyer! By the way, if you’re ever given an F. Meyer pop quiz, the Meyer lemon was named after Frank Meyer, who brought them from China. Knowledge! (Spotted by Jessica at Fred Meyer.)

  1. Pink salmon is a breed of salmon, like sockeye and chinook. Other breeds of salmon are also pink in color, but not all of them.

    Of course, if you’re a person who actually knows that, would you be buying Chicken of the Sea salmon in a foil packet?

    Mmmmm… Meyer Lemon! I love Krusteaz.

    1. I don’t think there is a species of salmon called Pink Salmon, they all tend to have reddish flesh from eating krill. The farmed salmon is pale-colored because they eat artificial feed instead of krill; in order to get consumers to buy the fillets, the producers dye the flesh so that it’s pink.

      1. Pink Salmon is, indeed, a species. It’s the more popular name for Humpback Salmon, a.k.a. Oncorhynchus gorbuscha. Wikipedia is your friend in these things (I’d post the link, but I apparently can’t), but if you’d prefer a snazzier source, the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service will also confirm.
