Recently, Toro decided to re-formulate the mixes for the European market. Unfortunately, the recipes developed by Tastes Like Real Food do not work with the new formulations. That issue combined with price pressure from the weak US dollar have resulted in Tastes Like Real Food deciding to stop importing Toro mixes. We are now able to offer the remainder of the old-formula stock at a deep discount. The mixes originally sold for $7.49, but while supplies last we will be closing them out for just $3.79, a savings of almost 50%. These old-formula mixes have a "best before" date of January 2010 (the shelf life can be extended by freezing them). There are four to choose from:
