The original “The Incredible, Edible Egg” marketing slogan was created back in 1977 for the American Egg Board in hopes to halt declining egg sales. The American Egg Board used this catchy tune to keep the consumer’s attention and inform them of the health benefits of chicken eggs. It worked and the slogan is still going strong. That was then… this is now; get ready for the “real” incredible egg, the quail egg. A quail egg is about ¼ the size of a chicken egg with much more health benefits and a nutritional value that is three to four times greater than chicken eggs.
Quail eggs contain 13 percent proteins, compared to 11 percent in chicken eggs.
Quail Eggs contain 140 percent of vitamin B1 compared to only 50 percent in chicken eggs.
Quail eggs provide five times as much iron and potassium.

Have you ever wondered where Bristol Farms' unique sushi originated? Let’s take a look back to 1969 when Yoshi Kubo, at that time residing in Kagoshima, Japan, received a call from his uncle requesting help with his new sushi restaurant in Westwood, CA. Yoshi quickly went to help and learn his trade. During the next 15 years, Yoshi became a top chef in Los Angeles and later in the San Gabriel Valley area.
In 1984, Yoshi developed a friendship with one of his sushi customers, Irving Gronsky, founder of Bristol Farms market in Rolling Hills Estates. At the time, “Irv” was working on opening a second Bristol Farms in South Pasadena. Irv continued to frequent the sushi restaurant for two years until 1986 when Yoshi agreed to take over the sushi operations for Irv’s new South Pasadena store. Using his “sushi bar” experience along with his understanding of what flavors Southern Californians desired, Yoshi quickly developed a profitable system for in-house, grocery… Read More
