I recently had the opportunity to try Private Selection brand from Kroger’s brand stores (mine came from Fry’s). I wasn’t really sure what to expect as store brand items can be hit or miss.
We, BF and I, decided to make a meal of the appetizer and pizza one night. It was a good idea, as the pizza was not that big and alone would not have been enough for both of us.
The pizza was excellent. It had pepperoni, garlic and little balls of mozzarella that melted down in the oven. It was a thin crust and it crisped right up. It was also quite flavorful. BF even commented on how good the crust was and he typically does not like thin crust on frozen pizzas.
The appetizers were good but not as good as the pizza. They were little cone shaped dough, like a mini tortilla stuffed with chicken and a southwestern style stuffing (onions, pepper, cheese). I know, southwestern with a pizza but whatever. To me the chicken tasted the tiniest dry but overall it was a decent dish.
A few nights later we had the dessert. O.M.G. It was so freaking tasty! I want more just thinking about it! It was two individual sized apple crisps. I would have liked a little scoop of vanilla ice cream to put on top, next time. My only complaint was it was still a bit cold in the middle. I will definitely cook it longer than the instructions.
I will more than likely buy the pizza again. It was pretty tasty but a tad expensive for a pizza of the frozen variety. It would be ok for just me; I could get two meals out of it but with BF we’d need to buy two or have something in addition.
The appetizers were not my favorite. They weren’t bad. I may buy them if they are on sale or I get a coupon. I definitely wouldn’t go out of my way to pick them up though.
The dessert I would most definitely do again. It was so delicious and simple. It was a nice ending to a long day of work. It was like having a homemade dessert during the week. I do like to bake but it gets difficult during the week. BF and I were actually perusing the other frozen desserts to see what else was available. They all looked so good! I can’t wait to try the other ones.
