Simple Truth Products Review

by Katie on January 12, 2018

As I mentioned last week, I have had the opportunity to review a variety of products from Kroger’s Simple Truth Product line during the month of January.  Exclusive to the Kroger Company of stores, this product line features organic, free from, and natural foods.

The box I received from Kroger was filled with food, personal care, and baby care items. My family and I enjoyed trying out the products this past week, and have several new favorites. So, in no particular order, here’s a breakdown of the items we received:

So I’m not gonna lie….snacks don’t last long around our household, especially with four kids! The kids decided to dig into the chips and salsa first. I loved the blue corn tortilla chips. They had an amazing flavor, and were salty enough without being too salty.

As for the salsa, it had a very good flavor, but I was surprised how spicy it was for being labeled as mild. I’m not a big fan of spicy foods, so this salsa wouldn’t be my first pick, although my husband and kids enjoyed it.

I’m not very picky when it comes to bottled water. In fact, I tend to prefer tap water over anything bottled. But my kids on the other hand, are a whole different story. They love bottled water, and they definitely liked the Simple Truth water with electrolytes. I personally liked how sturdy the bottle itself was – it makes it more durable for school lunches and outings.

So, I know that rice cakes are one of those love ’em or hate ’em kind of items, but our family is definitely in the “love ’em” category. These rice cakes were honestly the best rice cakes I’ve ever tried. The flavor was spot on, and I was thrilled that they only had 2 grams of sugar per serving –  a huge plus in my book!

Okay….I’d love to rave about the seltzer water, but here’s the thing…none of us are big fans of seltzer water. My daughter tried it and although she said the flavor was good, she just couldn’t get past the “fizziness” of it! So, moving on….

I liked the apple cinnamon granola bar. It had a nice flavor and texture, but to be quite honest, with 12 grams of sugar, it wouldn’t necessarily be my first pick for a snack.

These granola clusters were phenomenal! I enjoyed them so much that I added them to my energy bites for a little added flavor and crunch. It’s a fairly simple recipe that only requires a handful of ingredients:

2/3 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup old fashioned oats
1/2 cup flax seeds or sesame seeds
2 tablespoons honey

Combine all ingredients. Place in refrigerator for 30-45 minutes until chilled. Roll into balls and store in fridge.

The granola clusters were an amazing addition to this recipe. They gave the energy bites and added burst of flavor that my daughter and I loved!

So, these were hands-down the cutest snack crackers I’ve ever seen! Who doesn’t love cheddar crackers shaped like kangaroos?! These and the fruit snacks (sorry, those were eaten before I had a chance to snap a picture of them), would certainly be front runners for the kids’ lunches and snacks.

Even though I don’t have little ones at my house anymore, I still feel like wipes are a must. They’re so convenient to have on hand for quick clean-ups, spills, and messes. I really liked these wipes. They clean up well, and unlike some wipes, they don’t have an overpowering scent to them.

I’d love to say that I was able to score this lip balm, but I’ve found that when you live with a “tweenage” girl, she snags these kinds of items pretty quickly. I did however, get to smell the lip balm, and I like the strawberry scent. She loves the lip balm, and it even scored a place on her bench next to her bed which is a pretty high honor for a personal care item!

You guessed it…my daughter stole this one too, although she’s good at sharing! The lotion has a nice fresh lemony scent to it, and it doesn’t leave your hands feeling greasy, which is a big plus in my book.

Okay…so these freeze-dried cinnamon apples had a good flavor, but I’m just really a fresh fruit kind of girl. So, these didn’t make it into my favorites category.

My husband tried the beef jerky, and he enjoyed the teriyaki flavor. I was surprised to see that it has 12 grams of protein per serving, which makes it a great afternoon pick-me-up kind of snack.

Of course, I don’t have any little ones, and as hard as I tried, I couldn’t convince any of my kids to try a fruit and veggie puree! I’m planning to give this pouch to my friend, and I have no doubt that her 2-year old will give it a rave review!

And last but not least, the bread! I was really impressed with the nutritional facts on this bread…3 grams of protein, 90 calories, and only 1 gram of sugar per slice! And to top it off, it tasted amazing! I’d happily add this product to my grocery list!

So there you have it….a run down of all the Simple Truth products our family tried this week. Overall, I was really impressed with the brand, and look forward to trying more products in the future.
