Kroger Spring Dinners (Review)

 
A couple of weeks ago for dinner our family had the opportunity to try some new to us food, thanks to being a bzzagent.
We were given the opportunity to try Kroger Moist and Tender pork tenderloin, Kroger Crescent rolls, and Kroger Macaroni and Cheese. We were also able to try Kroger cake mix and frosting, which I used for Benjamin’s birthday cake.
First our family had a nice family sit down dinner that consisted of the pork, crescent rolls and macaroni and cheese.




With the Pork tenderloin, I actually was able to make a few meals. The first meal that I made I cut the tenderloin into chops and baked it in the oven. My hubby and I agreed that the pork was very lean and very moist. (I was also able to freeze some of the chops for a future meal. I also used about ½ of the tenderloin and made bbq pulled pork in the crockpot last week that turned out amazingly tender and yummy!)

I have bought and prepared Kroger Crescent Rolls in the past. My children love the rolls! They are nice and flaky and delicious. And I love that they are priced less than their national brand competitor and taste just as good, if not better!
We also had the opportunity to try Krogers’ premade macaroni and cheese. (We could have tried the macaroni and cheese or the mashed potatoes. As my children are not fans of potatoes, I chose the macaroni and cheese.) The macaroni was very easy to prepare (microwave for a few minutes) and the container had enough for 4 servings for our family. My kids and hubby LOVED the macaroni and my husband has requested that I add it to our grocery list regularly. Personally, I thought it was just okay (but I am a macaroni and cheese snob and really only care for the national brand that comes in the blue box!).
A week later, we had Benjamin’s birthday party and I made his cake using a box of Kroger brand white cake mix, a box of Kroger brand chocolate cake mix and Kroger brand vanilla frosting that I tinted using non-flavored food coloring.




The cake was yummy and moist and the frosting was so flavorful without tasting fake. I was even asked for my frosting recipe because Benjamin’s Godmother thought I had made the frosting from scratch. Everyone loved the taste of the cake!
Overall, my family and I were/are VERY pleased with Kroger brand of foods that we were able to try and it was great being able to eat a healthy, yummy meal together as a family!
