I really like the Kroger. There really is no Kroger brand though, it's all made by Bunge. Bunge makes good stuff (ACI winners). They supply a lot of bakeries and retailers. They also supply Crisco. Sometimes when we think of store brands, we think the quality may be lower. Not always true. It just depends on who supplied/made what's in the store brand package.
Butter-flavor Crisco...I've been wanting to try that ever since MrsMissey mentioned her Chocolate BC recipe using it. Sound like it would be rich!
