My Kroger Grocery Store

14 posts in this topic

I don't know if Kroger grocery store is a nation wide grocery store but this is one of the stores that we have here it is like Albertsons, I went in the other day to buy some Pamela cookies and they redecorated the natural foods section to include freezer section of natural foods including gluten free Kinninick breads including the gluten-free English muffins, pizza crust, sandwhich breads and also Amy's full line, Vann Waffles, I was excited to see this the prices not so excited to see they were just a little more maybe by a few cents than Whole Foods. I have not checked out the other big Krogers in town which is on the oppisti side of town, but Im hoping that they will have it too since we are about to move over to that side of town.

Great news! I'm heading to Kroger today and will check to see if they've added those to mine! I hope so because the Whole Foods is much further away and has an awful parking lot to navigate with 3 little ones!

That is great news!! I will have to check out our Kroger. DS loves the Kinnikinnick pizza crusts and the only place in town that carries them is not nearly as close as Kroger and it is probably more expensive that Kroger too.

I will also check my Fred Meyer (Kroger). Now, if they would only have a good labeling policy with their brands... ;)

I did ask the cashier if they are remodeling all Kroger stores or if this was the only store to get remodeled I am sure they might be, but the cashier said that she had no idea. This Kroger is located in Arlington, Tx they had been working on it for quite some time and the other day I was in the mood for Pamela's gluten-free Ginger cookies I knew that they have them $1.00 more than Whole food but they are closer to me and I did not want to drive across town in the heat and wast gas for just a box of 9 cookies. I was excited to see that the natural food section was complete and with the full line of Kinninnick breads, I had discover the brand when I went to another very small healthfood store here looking for hamburger buns because I wanted hamburgers for dinner one night and the clerk suggested using the gluten-free English muffins. Much to my delight they tasted very normal and a little sweet, :P I fell in love instantly. so know I think that I will try the sandwhich bread Kroger had the brown and white breads :P And I hope that ya'lls Krogers will have this update for ya'll to enjoy.

Often, if a company/store is already doing business with a company (like Kinni), then its generally fairly easy to have them add your store to their list of distribution. Same with if they already use a brand, but don't carry a certain product of theirs that you would like, its easier to have them add it.

I think its wonderful that Kinni. is in more mainstream stores!

Its good too. I love bread to begin with and this is better than the Good for Life Bread that I have been buying for my sandwhiches.

Sadly, my Kroger doesn't carry it. I sent them a feedback email about it though! :)

dandelionmom, I'm sorry to hear that your Kroger does not carry this, I hope that it is not a test market type thing. Maybe they are waiting to remodel the stores so they can accomitdate the frezzer section. I mean they went all out new frezzers for the natural foods frozen meals and the rest of the store got rearranged, new look and everything, it would be a waste of money to do something like that.

WOW! Awesome! Our Kroger stores here in Denver are called King Soopers. There was actually an article in our local paper recently how they are going to expand their Premium Select brand to include a line of organic products. All I know is I saw a picture of Glutino Pretzels with the article and I jumped up and down for joy.

Our KS stores don't have a specific natural food section, it's all blended in with the mainstream foods, and I've been watching for the Glutino packages specifically (all the Glutino stuff we've tried has been good). I'll keep an eye out for Kinnickinnick!

Kroger is pretty nice here in Colorado here. Yes, Kroger is pretty much all over, they just go under different names... here in CO they are King Soopers. I generally shop at Safeway, as I like their layout a bit more, the "specialty" gluten-free food is more centralized. But then, Safeway is 0.4 miles from my house, and King Soopers(Kroger) is maybe 0.6 miles from my house. And the Safeway is on my way home... I love hitting the grocery store a few times a week, sometimes every day. Since I almost have to drive through its parking lot to get home, its not so bad.

A new Kroger has just opened about four miles from my house. It has a very large Natural Food section. I didn't see Kinnik. products, but I will look closer next time. I may ask the manager about it! I was all excited because they had my Ener-G pretzels :) ...those are just about the only "chip" type food I like. Chips, in general, are too greasy for me. Thanks for the info.! B)

I'm the same way even with gluten foods I really did not like a lot of junk foods except for Little Debbies Oatmeal cream pies :angry: Oatmeal Raisen cookies :angry: Brownies :angry: I really did not like anything else.

But I love the gluten-free Pamela's Ginger cookies and gluten-free Brownies :P

    • Depression / anxiety issues
      Thanks for the advice Irene. I will look into that book. I know I'm a long away from healed but I got my hopes up when I felt better in that first week, it's just constantly a battle. I am hoping and praying that I get better soon 
    • Celiac - How many symptoms can there be?
      Do you take digestive enzymes and probiotics? That may help. Have you met with a dietician for help figuring out how you're getting glutened?
    • Depression / anxiety issues
      You should read the book' Jennifer's Way" you might find her story similar.  You will find better health- but be patient- it's an up and down road and takes a long time! For me it's been 7-8 months and I'm not well but slowly improving I hope
    • Celiac - How many symptoms can there be?
      Hi Everyone I am new here and wanted to see if anyone else is experiencing the same thing I am.  I was diagnosed positive for celiac in 2/2016 via biopsy from an endoscopy.  I was negative for blood work because I self-eliminated gluten 9 months prior; so I guess I had not antibodies register in my lab work.  Prior to 2/2016 I was having symptoms for almost an entire year.  Despite cutting out grains in general for 9 months, I would have a gluten attack at least once a month.  I have had a history of sinus, bronchial infection.  I remember as young as 17 getting sick but I always bounced back and was active in sports and working out.  But in the past year I developed the following symptoms - Sudden desire to pass out, nausea, headaches, heart palpitation, crashing exhaustion as if I was recuperating from the flu, wheezing in my chest. I was bounced around to an allergist at this and was told I was asthmatic and I had food sensitivities to dairy, nuts, corn or corn derivatives (including corn syrup) and grains.  so I cut everything out!  Despite cutting everything out I was still have episodes at least monthly, possibly cross contamination.  In April 2015 I traveled to the Carribean for 2 weeks,  I became very ill with a urinary tract infection, stomach bug and severe back pain with constant fever.  I was treated with antibiotics (Bactrim) for 10 days which did clear up the situation. I came home and dismissed everything to a coincidence.  Six weeks later the GI distress woke me up in the middle of night.  The pain was so excruciating that when I sat on the toilet thinking I had to go, I almost past out from the pain.  I lay myself down on the floor until it subsided.  The next day I contacted my primary and was immediately seen.  She referred me to a GI specialist but the appointment was not until August.  Then 2 weeks before my GI appointment they called and rescheduled for late September.  I saw him and by then I was feeling better; no epsides for almost 2 months.  So we did nothing.... boy did I talk to soon.  Immediately after the appointment I had an attack.  These were the symptoms: Nausea, crashing fatigue (as if I was hit with the flu), diarrhea, dizziness,, loss of appetite,  lower back pain, specifically in the middle; intestinal discomfort and body aches which lasted 10 days!! and abruptly disappeared, thank God.
      . I had to wait to see the GI until 1/2016.  Once I saw him he did labs which were all normal.  He checked my liver, kidney, pancreas, blood count which was all normal.  He also scheduled the endo/colonoscopy for end of 1/2016.  Speeding forward in time....since the Endo/Colonscopy procedures, I had attacks January through March which last 7-10 days each time.  I finally had a break for 2 months and today as I type this I am on day 6 of another episode.  What I wanted to see if anyone has experience the following.  For me each episode is getting worse with the following symptoms: Nausea (horrible), back pain on the left side both in the rib cage (the front and back) at times this pain also gravitates toward my left hip.  I also get diarrhea, bloating, intestinal distress, crashing fatigue and loss of appetite.  What really hits me hard is the rib cage pain that is in the front and back on my left side.  I will be seeing the GI doctor in August; but I am hoping to see him sooner Any input in reference to symptoms is appreciated.    
    • Depression / anxiety issues
      Hi all  10 weeks ago i was diganoised with celiac with blood work and a endoscopy. I have had the worst 2 years of my life that started with blood being in my stool everyday. I have always suffered with anxiety for as long as I can remember but I always just pushed trough it. I then I started having panic attacks, insomnia and major depression that I could not handle, I could not function, I lost my job because I could not leave my bed, I shaked as I lay in bed everyday uncontrollably. I met with a doctor who put me on lexapro (antidepressant) I finally gave in after 6 months and started taking them, they made me worst than I already was so I had to stop after 14 weeks. Fast forward to 15 months later and the symptoms still persists including the bloody stools, I was in and out of hospital every week and told I had all sorts of conditions, then the blood work and endoscopy Finaly discovered the celiac. I have been on the diet now for 10 weeks, the first week my anxiety went away, the horrible knot in my stomach that I have had everyday, the hot flushes, the tingling I had run trough my legs. This all left but only for a couple of days then it came back, the depression also lifted but has now came back, I have been more than strict with the diet, I check everything twice before I eat it, me and the misses have thrown away everything from our kitchen and replaced it with new things. I had my Vitiam levels checked and I'm deficient in b12, Vit D, all B vitiams. It's like one step Foward 2 steps back in tearms of healing, I know these anxiety / depression feelings are not me but I've had them for so long that I can't seem to see light at the end of the tunnel. The couple of days that they left me when incredible I felt human and alive. Just wondering if any of this has happened to anyone else with celiac or gluten intorlance. Any advice or hope In tearms of healing or am I to feel like this for the rest of my life (I'm 28) by the way. Thanks a lot

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
