I've heard they call the store King Stupids. Is that true?
Anyway, you shouldn't be buying groceries with a credit card on which you carry a balance. In fact, you shouldn't be buying anything on such a card. If you carry debt, move it to the lowest-interest card you can find; don't charge anything else on that card and pay it off as quickly as possible.
For you day-to-day purchases, including groceries, use a card with a rewards program that most benefits you (can't tell if that's KS card because don't know about your other spending). And pay that card off every month by the due date without exception so you can avoid interest.
If groceries are your biggest expense, you might consider Amex Blue Cash Everyday.

US Bank: Cash+ (utilities, phone, internet, restaurant, 5%; drugstores, 2%).
FIA Card Services: Fidelity Amex (everything, 2%); Fidelity Visa (everything, 1.5%).
Chase: Freedom (rotating, 5%); Amazon (Amazon.com, 3%); PriorityClub (IHG hotels, 5 points/dollar); Sapphire (not in use).
*All cards are registered with PriorityClub IDine program for 8 points/dollar at participating restaurants.
