As a BzzAgent I have the opportunity to try new things and I was glad to hear I was selected to review Kroger Skillet Meals. This was a great BzzAgent campaign as I received coupons for Kroger Skillet Meals, Kroger garlic bread and a bag of Fresh Express salad. A COMPLETE MEAL!
Choosing which Kroger garlic bread and Fresh Express salad proved to be easy tasks but with so many flavors of Kroger Skillet Meals to choose from, well, that proved to be quite the challenge. My local grocer carried the Tuscan Style Penne, Shrimp Lo Mein, Chicken Fajitas and Sausage Rigatoni. I settled on the Shrimp Lo Mein.
I'd love to say the Three Boys and an Old Lady family loved it, but *sigh* we didn't. There were probably about 6 teeny, weeny shrimp and quite honestly the dish took a long time to prepare. You have to thaw the sauce in one cup, heat the noodles up in another, do this, do that, blah, blah, blah-blah, blah-blah. Then on top of all that, the noodles had an odd texture and the sauce was flavorless.
I'm a firm believer of the whole "Try It Once to say you tried it, try it again to say if you like it or not". Thank goodness we tried it again. Well, at least another variety of Kroger Skillet Meals at least. My family loved the Tuscan Style Penne. Definitely a huge time saver and pretty tasty. We will definitely purchase this variety again!
I also loved the Fresh Express Salad Kits. There are tons of varieties and there's always just enough leftover for lunch the following day. Coupled with the Kroger Garlic Bread, which was a winner in the Three Boys and an Old Lady household as well. The kids really loved the garlic bread and we've had it couple of times since first trying it. What a time saver!
I'd love to try the Kroger Skillet Meals Chicken Fajitas variety and have asked my local store manager to order. So, if you're looking for a quick meal and there's a Kroger near you, but sure to give Kroger Skillet Meals a try and while you're there, why not make it a meal and pick up a bag of Fresh Express Salad and some Kroger Garlic Bread.
