Halloween with Kroger

IMG_2083

Kroger’s MyMagazine Sharing Network sent me a box of Halloween-themed goodies to try out.  I was particularly happy to participate in this mission as I am a biiiiiig candy eater.  They sent me a bag of Kroger Brand Gummi Worms, Kroger Mini Twist Pretzels and a coupon for a free bag of Kroger Mini Baking Chips.  They also included a reusable orange Halloween shopping bag and stencils for carving pumpkins.

Kroger Brand Gummi Worms

I was really excited to receive a free bag of Kroger Gummi Worms.  You can buy a 9 oz bag at Kroger for $1.  Anyone who knows me knows that I am a massive gummi candy addict.  I can easily polish off a bag of Haribo Gummi Bears in one night!  I really enjoyed these Kroger Gummi Worms.  They were easy to bite into and not so chewy that they are rough on  your teeth.  They had a nice variety of delicious flavors and they really tasted good.  I find that gummi candies often have a powdery residue which provides a strange mouth-feel and these did not have that.  I give them two thumbs up!

Kroger Mini Twist Pretzels

IMG_2056 I really enjoy pretzels. My family has always liked to dip them in ranch dip and that makes a perfect snack. We have long been a fan of the Kroger Brand pretzels as you can buy a bag of these for $.99 and they taste just as good as the big name brand that costs closer to $4 for a bag! I think we will continue using the Kroger Brand! My toddler really enjoys snacking on these.

 

Kroger Brand Semi-Sweet Mini Baking Chips

A major component of this Halloween Kroger Brand Mission was to make a spooky creation or a candy bark.  We opted to make a candy bark as we weren’t feeling particularly creative.  We melted the semi-sweet chocolate chips and swirled some Kroger Brand Peanut Butter into the chocolate and poured it out on a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet.  While the mixture was still melted we topped the chocolate with some Kroger Mini Twist Pretzels.  We put the cookie sheet in the fridge overnight and by the next day had a wonderful salty and sweet candy treat.  It was the perfect treat to eat on Halloween!

Thanks again, Kroger.  We loved this mission!
