Trader Joe's Broccoli And Cheddar Quiches Are Back In Stores

It's always a nice surprise when something you thought you lost forever pops back into your life, and that's especially true of long-lost products from Trader Joe's. The popular grocery store inspires some pretty intense loyalty, especially around its many store-brand specialty items that you can't find anywhere else. Unfortunately, just because an item at Trader Joe's is popular, doesn't mean it's going to stick around. It doesn't help that Trader Joe's is pretty secretive about why it stops making certain products and doesn't announce its departure. So when an item you love at Trader Joe's suddenly stops showing up, people fear the worst. Thankfully, after vanishing for a while, it looks like one favorite, the Broccoli and Cheddar Quiche, didn't get the ax after all.

Customers online started speculating months ago that the quiche had been discontinued, but according to a post on Trader Joe's Reddit page, shoppers have just found them back in stores. The relief is palpable, with customers saying they were "devastated" when they thought it had been discontinued. The Broccoli and Cheddar Quiche is also back up on the Trader Joe's website, confirming its return at $2.99 a pop.

Broccoli and Cheddar Quiche rejoins its frozen breakfast lineup

The Trader Joe's Broccoli and Cheddar Quiche is a pretty simple frozen quiche, but that's part of its appeal as a cheap and easy breakfast. It features a flaky wheat crust, filled with mild and sharp cheddar cheese, broccoli, and eggs, and seasoned with onion, garlic, and black pepper. The Broccoli and Cheddar Quiche is settling back in next to two other quiches that have stuck around for a while, Trader Joe's Mixed Mushroom & Spinach Quiche and its classic Quiche Lorraine. The cheddar broccoli and spinach mushroom quiches are both single serving, 6-ounce sized breakfasts, while Quiche Lorraine clocks in at twice the size.

If you're a fan of Trader Joe's quiches, you should run out and grab a few right away — not just because you never know how long they'll be available, or how quickly they'll sell out, but because sales are one of the only criteria we actually know about when it comes to Trader Joe's discontinuing their items. These are small stores, after all, and items need to carry their weight or get out of the way. Why did the Broccoli and Cheddar Quiche disappear? We may never know. But if you want to avoid that fate in the future, take advantage of its return right now.
