The convenience craze is getting a winter-focused twist this season with Publix Super Markets’ new meal kit line designed for slow cookers. Launching in three different varieties, Publix is offering packaged chicken and dumplings, chuck roast, and pork carnitas meals for a convenient and balanced meal in the comfort of one's home.
Each kit makes a meal for four people, Publix Media and Community Relations Manager Brian West told the Tampa Bay Business Journal, and also comes with a slow cooker liner that makes cleanup a breeze.
The retailer’s chicken and dumplings and chuck roast meal kits, priced at $14.99 and $19.99, repectively, are available in several stores in Tampa, near Publix headquarters.
The new kits come on the heels of Publix meal kits from the company’s Aprons recipe development department introduced earlier this year. As reported by our sister publication, Publix meal kits are offered at three different price tiers, and have options that span the gamut of culinary skill levels. Options are typically also made to serve a family of four, with six different meals to choose from.
