Trader Joes no longer sells Chudleigh's Apple Blossoms

Just got confirmation at the West Hartford TJ's today...they discontinued them.

Chudleigh' will be sorely missed....

sniff sniff...I mourn thee.

  1. Safeways here in San Francisco sell frozen apple blossoms under their Safeway Select label. They are almost identical to Chudleigh's. Albertson's sells them under their Essencia label. You should look at your local supermarket's private label frozen dessert section. You may find them there.

    I just went to Chudleigh's website and found that these U.S. supermarkets carry their products:

    Archer Farms
    Giant Eagle
    Harris Teeter
    Hannaford Brothers
    Marsh Supermarkets
    Price Chopper
    Super Target
    Wal-Mart Supercenters

    1. Oh no. Not yet ANOTHER of my favorite TJ's items! ::::Sigh:::: And none of those supermarkets that Nancy Berry listed are near me in the Northeast. ::::Double Sigh:::::

        LindaWhit, Wegmans is pretty common in the Northeast... none near you at all??

        Also, Albertsons are called Acme in the Northeast.

        1. re: Das Ubergeek

          Nope, I've heard that Wegman's won't come to the Boston area, because of too much competition. And with everything I've heard about Wegman's, I *WANT* one here. :-)

          And I know of Acme from growing up in New Jersey, but to the best of my knowledge, none in the Boston area. Just Stop & Shop, Shaws, Star Market, Market Basket, Roche Bros., Trader Joe's & Whole Foods. Maybe one or two other locals.

          1. re: LindaWhit

            Shaws is owned by Albertsons... you might check in to it.

            And you can always request it to be stocked.

        2. In the Boston area we do have Hannaford's, maybe try there?

          1. Yes, there's a Hannaford's in Waltham. Also, I've seen the Essencia brand apple blossoms at the Allston Shaw's.

            1. I just left the La Mesa, CA TJs not an hour ago. They are there. $3.29
