I like my local Safeway because it’s bright and clean, it’s laid out in a way that makes sense to me (how foods are grouped together), the produce is fresh, they have a killer floral department, the bathroom is always clean (I seem to need to go every time I shop), and friendly people work there. My experience this time around was no different…and the floral department had tulips which made me extra happy.
I was to seek out some of the new items Safeway is carrying. They have “NEW” tags to alert as to what is new to the store. I picked the V8® Vegetable Blends and Fruit Juice in Carrot Mango, it’s a sneaky way to get your kiddos (and adults too) to get their veggies in. They also had a Healthy Greens flavor which is Spinach, Yellow Carrots, Apples, and Pineapple. Purple Power which is Purple Carrots, Beets and Apple. And Golden Goodness which is Sweet Potatoes, Yellow Carrots, Orange Carrots, and Orange (I almost got this one too). It never hurts to get a little more veggies in your diet.
We were out of mayo so I decided to give the new Best Food Mayonnaise superior squeeze bottle a try. You are probably saying squeeze bottle mayo is nothing new and you are correct. But this is a new design to help you maximize the squeeze and leave little wasted mayo when you are at the bottom. We haven’t made it to the bottom of the squeeze bottle yet so I’m not sure if it’s maximize or not but I like the new cap it has on it.
Then off to the coffee section to buy some of the new Starbuck’s® Iced K-cup® Packs (I got the vanilla flavor). I was curious as to what makes it be ice coffee…well you actually brew it over ice (aka you put ice in the coffee cup). It tasted like vanilla iced coffee. It’s a perfect pick up to add to your K-cup collection for summer.
And lastly I picked up Breyers® Gelato Indulgences™. We had already tried the Tiramisu flavor but they have come out with Chocolate Caramel (purchased), Cappuccino (purchased), Mint Chocolate, and Strawberry Truffle. It is definitely an indulgence. I think it’s way creamier than just ice cream.
All the products I got are pictured here:
I chose to make a recipe using the Breyers® Gelato Indulgences™. I love coffee and toffee together but I also could not buy the Chocolate Caramel flavor because duh, chocolate and caramel, so I decided to combine both. This is a super yummy and super easy dessert to throw together. I’m not sure what it is about molding desserts that make them seem more elegant, but they just seem more fancy. If you don’t want to make a terrine you could always buy a chocolate cookie crust (pre-made) and put the ice cream in there.
Be sure to check out and discover what’s new at your local Safeway (Vons, Pavilions, CARRS, Tom Thumb, Randalls).
