bzzcampaign: Taste of México at Kroger

Thanks to bzzagent I got an early sample of the Taste of México campaign at Kroger. This is a celebration of the cuisine from our neighbors to the South. Every weekend for the next couple of weeks, Kroger stores will showcase their products inspired by Mexican cooking with free samples around lunch time. I stopped by my local Kroger last Saturday and was able to sample a great smoothie that was made with Jumex Mango nectar, some Danoon Oikos Zvanilla Greek yogurt and Kroger Private Selection Classic Frozen Fruit Medley. It was tasty, but still healthy.

 In addition to the smoothie, Kroger staff was also getting ready to prepare some hot meal, but I was in a rush and could not stay. But they have the sampling going on again this weekend and I will stop by again. Normally I do my shopping on the weekends in the early AM, before 9AM. But with sampling occurring around Noon, I gladly delay my shopping until later in the day and see what Kroger has to offer in terms of Mexican cuisine.

I loved the festive atmosphere, the great decoration when you entered the store and all staff was wearing green t-shirts celebrating Mexican cuisine.
From bzzagent, I also got a nice bzzkit that contained a metal citrus press for my limes to add some sourness to the fish tacos I plan on prepping. I also got a bottle of caramel sauce that will go well with vanilla ice cream. Lastly, I got two free product coupons for prepared meat dishes, one ready made, the other marinated and perfect for grilling. I cannot wait to sample Mexican-inspired beef and mix it with some fresh salad and wash it down with some Corona! Sounds like the perfect dish to cool down with the summer temperatures we have now in North Carolina.

One of the new items that I hope become regularly available at Kroger are Churros. These are yeasty pockets of goodness filled with Dulce de Leche or Chocolate and they are available in the Donut area. If you look for a nice treat that does not bust the bank account, but tastes like a million bucks, the chocolate filled churros from Kroger are a must!
