Kroger Private Selection

randyjl Oct 27, 2012 08:28 PM

I have bought several of Kroger's Private Selection items. They have all been very good. Chocolate Ganache Ice Cream, Apple Pie from the bakery, frozen croissants are great. I will keep trying other items.

    The Kroger brand of pre made mashed potatoes is really, really good. And their bag of frozen turkey meatballs is a staple in my house and crock pot. Dump them in with a bottle of mandarin sauce and dinner is served!

      I buy their center-cut bacon, it's really reasonably priced compared to national brands at 3.99 a package.

        I have yet to try any frozen items, but am hooked on one of their salsas....New Mexican Hot Chile...or something like that. And I am a total fresh salsa snob. Also, this past weekend I picked up a box of praline shortbread cookies and they were delicious. Totally crumbled from the butter and with little crunches of praline. It seems I may have had an ice cream that wasn't all that great, but think it was an odd flavor....like too much going on, as another poster mentioned. I will def look for the lasagnas and croissants. I am surprised they don't have a bigger web presence for these products.

          Surprisingly enough, PS brand, for the most part, happens to really be good. OTOH, the Kroger brand, itself, is just plain junk. Reminds me of the few years that the Ralph's market (Kroger) had a generic line called "Plain Wrap". Can you guess what most people called it?

            They have some sous vide frozen entrées which are very tasty - they come two to a box. Unfortunately my location moves them around and they fall off my radar. IIRC there was a yummy Cajun stuffed pork chop and a chicken Marsala that I've enjoyed.

              I like their Denali Extreme Maximum Fudge Moose Tracks ice cream

                You should try their Frozen Lasagnas....both the Ground Beef and Vegetarian....they are Fantastic! You can actually see the real Ground Beef and cut up veggies! Puts Stouffers to shame.....

                  Great, I will. I wish Kroger had a list of the Private Selection offerings they have so we can find them easily.

                  I also think that their Private Selection ice cream is very good, especially their plain flavors like the chocolate ganache and all 3 types of vanilla (double vanilla, vanilla bean, homestyle country). The ones filled with goodies don't seem to be as smooth and creamy.
                  A lot of their other products have been good as well, EXCEPT their seasoned panko breadcrumbs. The texture wasn't very good and the flavor tasted....off.
