Okay - first off, yes I KNOW I can make them myself, so you needn't bother telling me that - lol!
I just loved the convenience/handiness & taste of the canned product.
For many, MANY years, I LOVED having a can or two of rice-stuffed grape leaves always on hand in my cupboard. They made terrific additions to appetizer trays along with spanokopita, to Greek salads, or just as a snack with a squeeze of lemon juice. There were a number of different brands, but all of them consisted simply of grape leaves folded around a plain minty-lemony rice filling. No other ingredients.
For the past 6 months, no supermarkets around here carry them anymore. Actually, one market does have them, but they have raisins mixed into the filling & I don't care for that type at all.
I've asked at the markets, done web searches on possible product recalls - can get no answers. Anyone on here have any ideas why they've so suddenly dropped out of sight?
I have 3 more places a bit further away to check out (Wegman's, Shoppers Food Warehouse, & CostCo), but then I'll be out of luck.
