As a BzzAgent, I was invited to join this BzzCampaign but had never heard of the brand. I found out that it’s available exclusively at Kroger, which is convenient for me since there’s one a few miles from my home that I shop at periodically. In my BzzCampaign package I received three coupons for three free items; one pizza, one appetizer, and one dessert dish. So PJ and I set out for a trip to Kroger to grab the three items to sample.
Our Kroger only had three pizza options; BBQ Chicken, Margherita Napolitana, and the Fire Roasted Vegetable. I’m fairly picky when it comes to pizza so I chose the Margherita Napolitana since it had halved grape tomatoes and pearlini mozzarella on it. It’s a thin crust, oval-shaped pizza and looked delicious on the packaging. However I was not impressed with the size nor the taste. Let me just reiterate…I’m fairly picky when it comes to my pizza. The servings were perfect for just the two of us. I believe we got three pieces a piece after I finished slicing it. If it didn’t have the pearlini mozzarella pieces, then there wouldn’t have been enough cheese for my liking. I don’t think I’ll be trying this again. PJ didn’t care too much for it either.
Next we chose an appetizer. I didn’t much care for the selection that our Kroger had but we finally settled on the Southwestern Style Chicken Trumpets. I was a little leery since I’m not too fond of spicy things but I figured it couldn’t be too bad. Now those were pretty good! I believe there were about 12 to a box, however they were small so at first I was a little bit disappointed. But when I cooked them up and ate them I was surprised. I liked this better than the pizza! The chicken wasn’t dried out and the bite of the spice was just enough for me to handle. We finished the box between the two of us because they were so small. But I would definitely pick these up again simply just because they’d make a great snack to keep on hand…plus PJ liked this one too!
Then there was the dessert. We had three options; Blueberry Peach Panna Cotta, Northern Spy Apple Crisp, and Pineapple Upside Down Cake. I like apple but the Northern Spy Apple Crisp just didn’t look too appealing to me. Now I do like some pineapple upside down cake! It seems like the perfect portion size. But alas, it is 430 calories per serving…ouch! It came in it’s own little black bowl to be cooked in. It even had it’s own slice of pineapple on top! Very easy to make, just pop it in the microwave for a minute, turn it over, pop it out of the bowl, and voilà! I must say that for a frozen cake, it was actually really good and VERY sweet!! This was my favorite of all three items. I would definitely try this again but would make sure I ate it on one of my running days!
