I don't think I have ever seen frozen petits pois. I'll have to look for them. I have seen the canned ones, but I don't eat khaki coloured peas.

So do I. I can't digest the skins on regular size peas. No problem with petite.

I don't think I have ever seen Birdseye in Canada. I just googled and got stuff about birds and eyes and food for birds.

TL, Green Giant has them as do the house brands "Western Family" (I use and love them!) and "President's Choice". They are usually right beside the regular frozen peas and you have to be careful.

Thanks LP. I'll look for President's Choice first, then Green Giant. I don't think we get Western Family here in the East.

Western Family I just realized is a BC/Alberta Brand sold in Price Smart, Save-On Foods, Super Value and Overwaitea (all owned by the Jim Pattison Group).

I know Safeway have them too but rarely go there. I happen to like the store brands better than Green Giant, and they are cheaper - go figure!

Sometimes we Americans forget that Canada is not a part of the United States. They make their own products, and don't always import ours. And sometimes their products are superior to ours.

We have Western Family around here, too. It's not that I forget Canadians might not be able to get some brands, I just don't know what brands they do have. I named the Brand I bought.

As for Clarence Birdseye, since he was the one that really got the whole freezing thing down for retail, you would figure his products would be widely recognized.
