With the increase of bone broth’s popularity, it seems like new bone broth companies are popping up overnight. Clearly, we are a bone broth company, so we tend to pay attention to such things. When we got word that another bone broth company would be pitching their company on Shark Tank, we wanted to do a little investigating to see how we stacked up against their product.
So, how does Kettle & Fire compare to the Shark Tank bone broth (aka Osso Good Bone Broth)?
Shark Tank Bone Broth vs. Kettle & Fire Bone Broth
Of course, we might sound biased because we believe in our product, but these comparison facts can be verified from our website and theirs. So, while our opinion might play a small role, we also want to let the facts speak for themselves.
- Both companies boast completely organic, pasture-raised, and grass-fed bones and ingredients for the broth base.
- Both companies are small businesses, and were started by people who believe in the simplicity and nourishing benefits of quality bone broth.
- Kettle & Fire boasts fresh, never-frozen bone broth. Osso Good bone broth is frozen and is shipped to your door on dry ice, and must be refrigerated (used within 7 days) or frozen (used within 4 months). Kettle & Fire is the only company who produces fresh bone broth that won’t go bad, has a long shelf life (while still maintaining freshness), and isn’t shipped using styrofoam or toxic dry ice.
- Kettle & Fire offers cheap or, in some cases, free shipping. Because our product isn’t frozen, we aren’t limited to certain shipping requirements, and we can ship anywhere in the U.S., typically for less than ten dollars. When customers buy six or more cartons, the shipping is free. If I were going to order from Osso Good, I would have to order 15 or more cartons to receive free shipping. Which means I would have to spend at least $179.85 in order to get free shipping.
- Kettle & Fire bone broth is always in stock. We’ve noticed that Osso Good is frequently out of stock because they create their broth in small batches. While their website states that it’s a good thing when a product goes out of stock (because it’s in high demand), we don’t think it’s very good to not be able to buy a product when you want it. This is especially troublesome if you’re drinking bone broth to help alleviate health issues–you can’t continue the healing process if you don’t have access to the drink you need. We want to make sure that you always have access to high-quality, organic, shelf-stable bone broth whenever you need it.
- Because Kettle & Fire broth doesn’t have to be refrigerated or frozen before it’s opened, it’s perfect to travel with or take on the go! And because it’s at room temperature, it doesn’t have to be warmed before sipping if you’re out and don’t have access to a method of heating. Sure, it tastes better when hot, but we’ve certainly done our share of lukewarm sipping to accommodate our busy lives.
- Kettle & Fire has no minimum order amount. While Osso Good technically has no minimum either, if I wanted to order only one pouch from Kettle & Fire and only one pouch from Osso Good, I would be paying dramatically different fees for each order.
The image above shows that if I want to order one pouch of bone broth from Osso Good for $11.99, I am going to be charged $49.99 for shipping. If I want to order six pouches, I will still pay $49.99 for shipping (as shown below).
I don’t know about you, but that’s a hefty fee for shipping, even though I get it. They have no other choice but to ship UPS, in dry ice, because their product is frozen. Still, that’s a $50 bite out of my monthly grocery budget that I don’t care to eat.
If I want to order a single pouch from Kettle & Fire, for $11.99, I am only going to pay $7.99 for shipping.
As you can see, I only have to add five more to get free shipping, instead of having to purchase 15 or more to get free shipping from the Shark Tank bone broth company.
Osso Good’s Beef Bone Broth Isn’t 100% Beef (Seriously)
We mean it when we say our bone broth is made with 100% grass-fed, pasture-grazed cattle. The bone broth featured on Shark Tank can’t claim the same: Osso Good’s beef bone broth is made with chicken feet and backs–it says so right on the ingredients label.
Pretty shocking, huh?
We only add organic vegetables, organic herbs, sea salt and black peppercorn to our beef bone broth–and we save the chicken for our tasty new chicken flavor.
Reasons to Drink Kettle & Fire Bone Broth
The reasons why we should add bone broth to our diets are stacking up, but some of the most popular and commonly cited ones include:
- For gut health, or reversing/addressing leaky gut
- For arthritis or joint pain
- For digestive wellness
- For a nutrient-rich food
- For thyroid wellness
- For skin conditions, like eczema
- For immune balance
- For fertility and healthy pregnancy
- For metabolism, detox, and weight loss
Bone broth is the superfood and secret wellness weapon of many generations before us. Now that we have embraced the health benefits, it can still be difficult to fit bone broth into our modern, fast-paced lives. That’s why we at Kettle & Fire have created a way to bring quality bone broth to your door, without requiring the inconvenience of refrigeration, or having a short shelf life. You can confidently stock up to have bone broth on hand when it’s needed without the fear that it’ll expire or go bad before you can use it.
And while we also encourage you to make your own, we get that sometimes there isn’t time. Our bone broth isn’t a subpar substitute. In fact, popular wellness experts like Dr. Sarah Ballantyne (aka The Paleo Mom) and Ben Greenfield have embraced our bone broth because they understand that it isn’t always possible to make your own broth at home, but that it’s still an essential part of a wellness routine.
