Private Selection-A BzzAgent Report


I am a BzzAgent. What does that mean? BzzAgent is all about social advertising. I get to try samples of products (sometimes full size!) and report to the companies who provide them-free of charge!-as well as spread the word (my opinion) to my friends & acquaintances. Almost always I am provided with coupons to pass out as well J

So today I’m reviewing 3 products from Kroger’s Private Selection brand. Now, I actually shop at Payless which is under Kroger’s umbrella. In other areas of the country, your store may have a different name.

Loaded directly onto my saver’s card were coupons for three free items: a Private Selection Pizza, a Private Selection Appetizer and a Private Selection Dessert. Brianna and I went in the store yesterday afternoon, chose our free products, scanned them at the self-check station, scanned my card and walked away with my free items. Oh, and I also received a coupon for $3.00 off my next grocery purchase…how sweet is that?!

We chose the Margherita Napolitano pizza. It looked good on the box and we both like mozzarella & tomatoes. The pizza looked good coming out of the box, baked up quickly in the oven and was cut into 5 good-sized wedges. Retailing for around $5, this was a huge hit with Andrew and everyone agreed it was very tasty!

For the appetizer, we chose the Mediterranean Inspired Hors D'Oeuvres collection. These were puff-pastry in delightful shapes filled with yummy stuff like mushrooms, spinach & artichoke, and sun-dried tomato. Retailing for $7.00 for 9 pieces, I found these to be pricey but absolutely as delicious as anything I’ve ever had in the finest restaurants I’ve been to. I won’t be buying them every week but they would be a nice treat for an in-home date night with Dr. Love. They baked up easily in the oven very quickly too.

Our dessert choice was the cream puffs. We left them on the counter to thaw while the pizza & appetizers cooked. Brianna melted a chocolate bar and drizzled it over them and they were wonderful! Again, as good as anything I’ve had in a restaurant! These retail for $5 and there were easily 35 in the box!

As always, I have coupons to share-this time they’re $2.00 each! And with the holidays coming up, don’t hesitate to pick up any of the wonderful Private Selection frozen foods to serve and enjoy!

I found this post to be very helpful. I do shop at Krogers and have tried some of the items in their Private Selection. You have given me information on some things that I was wanting to try but hadnt been that adventurous. Thanks for the info, I will be looking for the Hors D'oeuvres for my Holiday Get Together.
