Buying store brand products is a good way to save money, and I’ve found five Kroger brand foods that are every bit as good as their name brand counterparts. I consider myself pretty thrifty, but I’ll only buy a store brand if it’s comparable in quality to its more expensive competition; I won’t buy something I don’t like just to save a bit of money.
Here are five Kroger brand food products that are just as good as a name-brand product:
Kroger ice cream. I like ice cream. To say I love ice cream would not be an overstatement. I eat a lot of ice cream, and I eat it because it tastes good. Kroger brand ice cream tastes good. Plus, it has my favorite flavors: mint chocolate chip and peanut butter candy crunch (also known as Butterfinger).
Kroger Fruit and Grain Low Fat Cereal Bars. These breakfast bars are another of my favorite Kroger brand foods. They have a good texture, taste good, and come in a lot of different flavors so I never get bored. Apple cinnamon is my favorite, but I like them all.
Kroger Chewy Granola Bars. This is another really good Kroger brand product. The granola bars taste good, and come in a pretty good selection of flavors. There are variety packs with a couple bars each of several different flavors, and whole boxes of just one type, if you’ve got a favorite. I buy both.
I get these a lot, always using my Kroger Plus card, and as a result have got coupons for a free box of granola bars on a couple of occasions.
Kroger Applesauce. I really like Kroger brand applesauce, and always get the no sugar added variety, although there are several different flavors available (including cinnamon). I like the taste and texture of this product.
Kroger beef stew. I really like this beef stew. It tastes good and it’s hearty, with big chunks of everything you expect to find in beef stew, swimming in nice, thick gravy.
All of the Kroger brand products listed above are products I buy on a regular basis, and have for years. And like the best products, they’ve been consistently good over the course of that time.
In addition to the good taste and price on these Kroger brand foods, they’re always available. When I use my Kroger Plus card, I often get coupons from Kroger for these products, and the discounts are good.
If you’re not a store brand shopper because you’ve been concerned about quality, give them a try. They’re usually every bit as good as other products, and the price is right. Kroger brand foods convinced me.
