Private Selection Review

I was recently given the chance to try out several new items from Private Selections (available at the Kroger family of stores).

Garlic Stuffed Olives- (retails for $4.79) I wasn't sure about the large pieces of garlic in these but, the amount of garlic flavor is just perfect. These wouldn't be something I would purchase all the time but so special occasions I would definitely purchase more.

Basilico Tomato & Basil Pasta Sauce- (retails $2.59) I love a good pasta sauce but, sadly this was not a good sauce. I found it very bland and actually ended up adding tons of spices to it. I do think that it would make a really good dipping sauce for breadsticks though. I could also see keeping a jar on hand for when we have friends come with kids who don't enjoy pasta sauce with lots of spices.

Costa Rican Tarrazu Coffee- I am usually more of a flavored light roast coffee kind of girl but, I found this coffee to be quite good. I added my usual sugar and creamer and was all set for the day.

Classic Water Crisps- These were just what would would expect from a water crisp cracker. Nice and crunchy and perfect with a little cheese on top.

And now my two favorite products, Strawberry Greek Yogurt and Raspberry Cranberry Greek Yogurt-
 (retail $1.29 a cup) I really enjoyed these yogurts. They were just what you expect, thick and creamy yogurt with a nice little cup on the side for the fruit.

I found this to be a great feature since this way you can add your fruit a little at a time or all at once, you choose!

Overall I found these products were a little on the pricey side but given the right sale or occasion I would buy all of them again.

I was given either the products or free coupons to purchase them in exchange for my honest opinions. These are in fact my honest opinions.

  1. I love the Private Selection Basilico Sauce. I like the bright color of it. It looks and tastes very fresh and delicious! I was surprised at how close it comes to my homemade meatless sauce. I add some grated parmesan or romano cheese and simmer it awhile. Sometimes I add red or green pepper. But it's good as is. I've tried a lot of gourmet tomato sauces and this is the best.
