A Note Of Thanks To Buzz Agent- Kroger Private Selections

I adore and trust Kroger stores, especially my local Kroger facility. The staff are normally very helpful, kind, and keep the store tidy. The product selection available is spectacular.

I try to shop in Kroger for our everyday needs at least once or twice per week. They provide amazing sales that helps me keep stocked up on a few items and carry just about everything for basic, essential, needs and wants.

One of my favorite aspects other than the products and sales, is the quality guarantee on some of their products. If you don’t like it or have any issues with the product and/or the quality, you just have to send an email or call and they will replace it.

When I came online this morning and found that I had been selected to participate in another Kroger Buzz campaign other than just the Moist and Tender Pork campaign, I was more than excited! I am a loyal, Kroger consumer and have tried Private selection items. This is why I don’t mind joining the Kroger campaigns! If I wasn’t already experimenting with the product line, I’m sure this would end with similar results to how I already feel about Kroger’s Private selection products.

Don’t forget that Kroger offers a rewards card to it’s members! You can earn additional savings, download digital coupons (sometimes for FREE products!!), receive coupons periodically in the mail, and gasoline rewards points.

With the high price of gasoline, who doesn’t love an extra .10 cents-$1 off per gallon? Unfortunately, the only gasoline savings that we can receive are the .10 off a gallon for 100 points. They do not have a gas station around here that offers the larger savings. I suppose this is due to the fairly small town.

Don't forget about the recipes and several other pages to view at Kroger.com! This Private Selection Moroccan Burger with Mint-Pepper Glaze recipe sounds amazing! If you give it a try, please let me know what you think about it.

•4. To assemble the burgers, spread the mint-pepper glaze on the cut sides of the buns. On each roll bottom, place a cooked burger and Havarti cheese. Add the roll tops and enjoy. Refrigerate any leftovers.

I’m looking forward to experimenting with even MORE Kroger Private selection products with the help of Buzz. My family and friends will hear about this buzz, probably a bit more than others since we all love to get together. Thank you Buzz Agent and Kroger for this opportunity!
