If you love roasted red peppers, if you enjoy them on chimichangas or like to make roasted red pepper soup, if you like them in or on anything, crave the savory sweetness they add to a meal, then you will mourn with me the fact that I cannot find a local vendor for my canned red peppers anymore.
I used to buy them at King Soopers for $6.99. Yes. Only $6.99 for a 5-pound 8-ounce can which held an average of 36 roasted red peppers. About a year and a half ago, during one of their ridiculous re-arrangements, they discontinued them.
I figured I’d find them somewhere, but alas, I have not.
I have checked all the major grocers as well as disounters like Big Lots. I have even ventured into Asian markets and scoured the Mexican Carnicerias. I had such hopes when Rancho Liberio started sending me their ads. But to no avail.
Sure, I can order the peppers from an online source. But it is quite a lot more expensive, and naturally, the shipping is exhorbitant.
They are a product of Spain and I miss them so. The Roland Food Company is an importer of such deliciousness. Can anyone tell me where I can get them now? Product #45630. UPC# 0 41224 45630 3
Help me…..she moans….Jeanie
NOTE TO SELF: Go feed garden pepper plants.

It just so happens that Sysco gets a load from Roland every week I’ll check to see if we carry the peppers.You might have to buy a case though.
O-I would buy a case!!!!!!
The King Soopers on 23rd and Main in Longmont still sells them!! I’m tempted to buy a can every time I am in there.
Be still, my heart!!! What? You mean the same city my daughter works in everyday??? Well-I mean the can itself it a work of art, right? It does feel risky to buy such a big can, but I just prepare ahead of time what I will make…and I also found out that you can freeze the ones you aren’t ready to use right then. Happy days are here again!!!!
Yea! They are in the bulk isle!
OR… King Soopers has a program in which they can special order an item for a customer if they request it. I was just given the little form myself, when I lamented their discontinuation of my favorite flavor of Orbit gum (Mint Mojito). Ask at the customer service desk…
yeah…I did that three times…they could never get it, supposedly…:(
I work at King Soopers main office as an analyst, and the Roland peppers is one of the items in my category. That is an item we still carry in some of our stores and currently have in our warehouse. If you could tell me which one of our stores you shop at, I will have a case shipped to that store. You may purchase as many or as few units as you need. In addition I will review the section that this item was removed from and try to get it back into the set. We at King Soopers are always looking for better ways we can assist our customers and always welcome your comments, suggestions and request. If you would contact me at my email:firstname.lastname@example.org or 303.778.3388 we can get the requested Peppers to you.
Thanks again for shopping with us at King Soopers.
