Bzzcampaign; Private Selection by Kroger - perfect for entertaining at the holidays

Through bzzagent, I was able to get free samples from the gourmet food line by Kroger called "Private Selection". This line, which I had sampled in the summer already, contains gourmet quality food and flavors at regular grocery store prices. This time, just perfect for the holidays, I get to sample cheese, coffee, crackers, yoghurt and olives. I am very much looking forward to sampling more of Private Selection because anything I have tasted so far from this line of food at Kroger has been wonderful.

In my bzzkit, I already received two full-size sample, the Costa Rican Tarrazu ground coffee and a package of water crisps. You can see, I also received plenty of coupons for more sampling as well as 5 coupons for sharing (each lucky person will be able to save 20% off the r4egular price for a Private Selection product). I had to google the coffee since I had never heard of Tarrazu. It turns out Tarrazu is a region in Costa Rica that is known for its coffee. It is a mountainous area producing exquisite Highland Coffee. 

I am very much looking forward to trying this coffee - I love coffee and I am always on the lookout for new kinds of coffee. It all started when a few years ago I first sampled coffee from North Africa and found it incredibly smooth, so now any exotic coffee that is new to me will be sampled.

The water crisp are an ideal choice for me because I am always using crackers to snack on. Paired with some cheese or even basic Nutella spread, crackers are much more filling and better than regular junk food. So water crisp, with their nice airy texture and just a hint of flavoring, will go well with any topping. I tend to have at least one box of water crackers at home to use for snacking.

The coupons for free products from the Private Selection line include free full size samples of Olives, sliced cheese, pasta sauce and a reduced price on Yoghurt. These are all products that I love, in particular sampling the olives will be fun. The pasta sauce I will definitely use in a main dish, but all the other products are perfect to use in appetizers during the holidays and I may have to save one of the 20% coupons for my own use to stock up on Private Selection items for the holidays. 

So keep your eyes on this blog for updates on how I like the Private Selection products I am sampling thanks to bzzagent.
