Pierogi Heaven Discontinued @ TJ’s

Please share your Trader Joe’s discontinued and seasonal experiences with me. This way we can adjust our shopping lists accordingly without multiple visits to the service desk.

The pierogis have been discontinued. Why? Not enough Eastern European’s buying it? It was a weekly staple in my house. Potato dumplings. How could I go wrong? They go with everything and could stand alone. I will have to scout out a new source because I certainly don’t have time to make them. You notice the writing gaps for this blog. It is not my only form of recreation. I eat, too.

In February, Alan Rhodes (LOVE him) mentioned Kira’s Grill in a Cascadia Weekly opinions article.

Located in a dismal shopping center near the Blaine truck crossing, this Ukranian cafe serves up pierogis to die for and the best borscht this side of Pereiaslav-Khmelnytskyi. Leave room for the fried sauerkraut, another life changing experience.

I will report back on MY findings soon.

Kira’s Grill 1733 H St #420  Blaine WA     360-332-2240
Open daily 11am-7pm


  1. I get so bummed out by the stuff they discontinue. The dried salted edamame snack, the vegan taquitos, the vegan high calcium cranberry concentrate supplements,
    I could go on and on. Darn TJ’s–I love them yet they frustrate me with their changes!!

  2. have you found any good replacements for the Trader Joe’s Pierogi? I’ve tried quite a few different types of frozen market brands and none of them compare!!

  5. Can anyone recall the vendor that sold heavenly homemade piroshki’s on campus in the early 80’s? They were vegetarian and had garbonzo beans inside. Served with mustard and sour cream. I am looking for a recipe but will take suggestions. Please help.
