America's Largest Grocery Chain Just Added 4 New Items to Its Bakery Section

It's that time of year again. We're crossing the threshold from spooky treats to Thanksgiving eats. Sometimes you just want to sink into the feeling of autumn, which usually involves indulging your sweet tooth (in moderation, of course) in the midst of all your holiday festivities.

Kroger is introducing a handful of their own store-brand goodies for the season under their "Baked Goods" New Arrivals to accommodate just that. The variety among Kroger stores is wide, so you may not find the same options at every location. However, at select stores, these are four new items you can pick up in November 2021—that is, if you don't feel like breaking out the mixing bowl yourself.

Kroger Pumpkin Glazed Cake Donuts

As far as pumpkin spice trends go, donuts are a given. What better to accompany a mug of warm apple cider than a bite of the Kroger Pumpkin Glazed Cake Donuts while you're counting down the days until Thanksgiving?

Just limit your intake relative to other sugary foods—one donut will set you back 37 grams of sugar. That's a little over three times the sugar in a glazed from Dunkin' Donuts. The cost of the 6-count package varies, depending on which location you shop at.

Kroger Caramel Apple Glazed Cake Donuts

Here's another way to celebrate the flavors of fall, especially if you missed apple-picking season. Kroger®Caramel Apple Glazed Cake Donuts might be better paired with your favorite pumpkin spice latte. Even better if it's this healthful take on the traditional PSL.

This one is a little lower on the sugar content (26 grams), but still consider this an occasional treat alongside a balanced diet with plenty of fiber and healthy fat. The cost of the 6-count package varies, depending on which location you shop at.

Bakery Fresh Goodness Pink Frosted Sugar Cookies

Bakery Fresh Goodness Pink Frosted Sugar Cookies

These pillowy cookies topped with bright pink icing and rainbow sprinkles look like the Kroger brand version of Lofthouse Sugar Cookies, and that's a good thing. Even if you don't remember biting into one of these from the school bake sale, we guarantee you'll figure out which of your friends did when you bring the Bakery Fresh Goodness Pink Frosted Sugar Cookies to your next event.

If these cookies are all for you, just be mindful of the hidden serving size—the listing on the package is set at half a cookie. The cakey, buttercream-coated bakery item comes in a 10-count for $3.99.

Kroger Unicorn Toaster Treats

If you're wary of Kellogg's Pop-Tarts after their October 2021 strawberry-streaked lawsuit and are searching for a substitute toastable pocket pastry to take its place in your pantry, give the new Kroger Unicorn Toaster Treats a chance to compete. This one is cake-flavored, filled with frosting and topped with sprinkles.

But since it's packing 40 grams of sugar per serving, treat this confection more as dessert, rather than breakfast. A box of eight is a bargain at only $1.46.

Other brands have new items, too.


Kroger's expanded offerings aren't just limited to their own brand. The value grocer is also bringing a wide variety of desserts from well-known sweets companies like Tastykake, Hostess, Little Debbie, Entenmann's, and Voortman. For some more everyday bakery staples, they are introducing Thomas' Blueberry Bagels, Nature's Own Butterbread, and Stonefire Artisan Thin Pizza Crust to the baked goods shelves.

These 5 Grocery Items Are Cheaper Than Ever Right Now

The grocery industry has been facing major disruptions. The combined effects of the pandemic, climate change, and economic uncertainty over the past couple of years have culminated in a series of supply chain breakdowns. For the consumer, this means supply shortages , shipping delays , and temporary store closures are becoming more commonplace – and all of the added production cost to suppliers is driving up food prices . The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics' Consumer Price Index report for January 2022 was released on Feb. 9, and it tells the story of cost trends for every spending category over the past year. Now the numbers are in, and since January 2021, "food at home" spending has increased 7.4%. Consumers should use this number as a benchmark, Phil Lempert, the consumer behavior analyst and founder behind Supermarket Guru , told Eat This, Not That! "Anything that's substantially less [than the 7.4% increase] is a deal," said Lempert. "When you

When Should I Take Creatine?

Creatine is probably the most well-researched supplement on the market today. Numerous studies have found positive adaptations in strength, power and muscle mass thanks to creatine supplementation—especially when it's combined with resistance training. Although the benefits of creatine are well-known to lifters, the best time to take it isn't common knowledge. Which leads us to some important questions:     Does an optimal time for consuming creatine exist?     If it does, should you take it before or after your workout? According to a new study published in the Journal of Exercise and Nutrition, the timing of creatine ingestion does indeed play a role in getting bigger and stronger. Creatine supplementation before resistance training increases muscular strength and lean muscle mass. Interestingly, taking creatine immediately after lifting weights results in greater muscle growth than taking it immediately before. However, in terms of strength gains, no difference betw

Reentry Anxiety Is Real - Why You May Experience It as Stay-at-Home Measures Ease

When the coronavirus stay-at-home orders began in March, most people's lives changed in immeasurable ways. At the time, we were bombarded with (admittedly, very helpful) advice on how to cope with anxiety , should we experience it during this time of social distancing and sheltering in place. But with restrictions slowly starting to ease in many parts of the world, there are many people who have seen an increase in anxiety all over again, this time about leaving their homes and reentering society. Posts about people's growing anxiety have been popping up around social media for the past couple of weeks, and it's given rise to the term "reentry anxiety." We wanted to find out exactly what reentry anxiety is, whether it's normal to be experiencing trepidation about leaving your stay-at-home orders, and how to cope if you are feeling anxious. What Is Reentry Anxiety? The short answer is that "post-lockdown anxiety is real," said Dr. Balu Pitchiah ,
