I was the lucky BzzAgent to be chosen for the Private Selection® Kroger Brand Co.

it is Krogers way of sharing the Private selection Brand -Yummy and give all us Foodies (ME) a TASTE OF SUMMER! I know we really didn’t have a winter and Spring was about three days and the average temp now is 76% – so regardless that Mothers-day has not popped it head out, grab a grill and let’s get hopping!

Kroger a while back decided to make its own private selection brand that stood for more than just food but great tasting quality food at a reasonable cost.  I am always wary about store labels especially with my past history with Kroger.  True to say the hit the mark on this one – I personally have one had an appetizer it was amazing, an entrée – same and well I have had a good amount of the Private Selection Kroger Brand Co. Ice cream – every one should – It is a feel better food! They have something in just about every department and a staff that can educate  you on the product or another if that’s what you’re looking for. So settle into lets guess the weather and enjoy Kroger Private Selections at are next BBQ, Movie Night, or just a get together.  Thanks for letting me share what BzzAgent freely shared with me. Get ready to share your passion for flavorOH I thought you might like a recipe… get the juices flowing
