My Kroger Grocery Store

Recommended Posts

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
