Private Selection Frozen Food Review: The Dessert

Being a BzzAgent has it's perks! For one you get to try out products that are brand new on the market and review them, for FREE!
As a BzzAgent, I get the opportunity to try out new items and to review them. I was delighted to be included in the Kroger's Private Selection bzz campaign to try their new appetizers, pizzas and desserts. I recently reviewed their Southwestern Style Chicken Trumpets appetizer.  I found that they were yummy but not worth the price. I also reviewed their frozen Pepperoni and Roasted Garlic pizza. I found that I didn't care for it all that much.

So with these two reviews in the past, I went into trying the dessert wondering if I was going to like it or not. On New Year's Eve, after we put the kids to bed, hubby wanted to watch Captain America and wanted ice cream. I wasn't really in an "ice cream" kind of mood, so I decided to try one of the new private selection desserts.

According to

  • Private Selection® Frozen Desserts ($3 - $5) have rich, delicious flavors, making them a divine indulgence. Decadent treats include Blueberry Peach Panna Cotta, Northern Spy Apple Crisp, Pineapple Upside Down Cake and a wide selection of Ice Creams (like Strawberry Harvest, Vanilla Bean and SeaSalt Caramel)

  • I had actually bought 2 different kinds of the desserts...I bought the Northern Spy Apple Crisp and the Chocolate Croissants. On New Year's Eve, I decided to try the Northern Spy Apple Crisp. This dessert comes in a package of 2 and each crisp is individually wrapped so you can make one at a time and not worry about the other getting freezer burned. According to the packaging, the Northern Spy Apple Crisp has baked, freshly peeled apples topped with a brown sugar, cinnamon oat crumble. You can prepare them either in the oven (for a firmer topping) or in the microwave for a softer topping. I decided to make mine in the microwave.

    My verdict: It was SUPER YUMMY!!!! There was just the right amount of apples to topping ratio and it was not too sweet and not too tart for me! And I love the fact that it was a great size for one serving. Also the price was pretty reasonable for what you got. The package of 2 crisps costs $3.29 at my local Kroger store. Not terribly expensive for a convenient dessert.

    The only downside that I found was that it cooked unevenly in my microwave, and so I had to heat it longer than the package said to. The package said to heat on HIGH for 50-65 seconds. I had to heat mine for closer to 90 seconds to get it heated all the way through. But that was a minor setback.

    Overall, I was quite pleased with the Private Selection Northern Spy Apple Crisp and definitely recommend it to all of you!
