Frozen pearl onions - any recent confirmed sightings?

TorontoJo Nov 5, 2011 03:20 PM

I'll check my local Loblaw, Pusateri's and Bruno's, but would love to know if anyone has actually seen them in the recent past? North end of the city would be helpful.

    They are usually listed at MacMillan Orchards. http://www.macmillans.ca/retail-store...
    There is a location in Ajax, two minutes from my work, and I can check it out as I need the onions for braises.

      I once asked Pusateri's manager (Bayview Village) to order them, I've never seen them in there and, at the time, I didn't follow up - will do now though.

        Yay, found them today at the Pusateri's in Bayview Village mall. They are in the freezer case next to the frozen edamame. Looks like a 2 cup plastic tub for $2.99.

        I saw some today at Pusateri's at Avenue Rd/Lawrence. They are in the same freezer as frozen fruits and veggies.

          Perfect, thank you! That's where I'll head.

          Thanks to everyone else, as well!

            This is one of the items consistently on my shopping list for trips to the States where all the mainline groceries, even Walmart, carry them for about $1 a package in the freezer. Don't miss the Minute Maid frozen pure lemon juice either, it's fantastic.
