How long will they stay fresh?
We recommend cooking our pierogies right from the freezer and using your preferred cooking method to heat them to an internal temperature of 160○. Please see the box or our website for specific cooking method instructions. Each box has a Best By Date by which you should enjoy our pierogies.
Are Mrs. T’s Pierogies vegetarian?
All Mrs. T’s Pierogies flavors are vegetarian except Loaded Baked Potato and Mini Cheddar Seasoned with Bacon. The source of all mono- and diglycerides in our pierogies is vegetable. We do use natural flavoring in our pierogies. Most of the products that contain dairy flavors are derived from cow’s milk. The bacon flavor we use in Loaded Baked Potato and Mini Cheddar Seasoned with Bacon is derived from pork. The following flavors do not contain any natural flavoring: Classic Onion, American Cheese, Jalapeño & Sharp Cheddar, Traditional Sauerkraut.
Can you serve Mrs. T’s Pierogies when entertaining for a large group?
Yes! We offer several varieties of Family Size packages, including Classic Cheddar 2 lb., Classic Cheddar 4 lb., Classic Onion 2 lb. Mini Classic Cheddar 1.6 lb, and 4 Cheese Medley (2LB). A great recommendation for preparing our pierogies for a crowd is to boil the pierogies, add butter or oil and place them in a slow cooker on low heat.
What won’t you find in Mrs. T’s Pierogies?
There are no peanuts, nuts or nut extracts of any kind in Mrs. T’s Pierogies. We do not manufacture any products that contain nuts in our facility. There is also no MSG in our products.
Are Mrs. T’s Pierogies Kosher?
Mrs. T’s Loaded Baked Potato and Mini Cheddar Seasoned with Bacon are not kosher. All other Mrs. T’s Pierogies are certified kosher by the Orthodox Union, except for Broccoli & Aged Cheddar, which is certified by Kosher Overseers. Visit http://oukosher.org or additional information on Orthodox Union items.
What should I do if my grocery store doesn’t carry a particular Mrs. T’s flavor?
If no stores near you carry the flavor you’re looking for, you can try putting in a direct request with the frozen food manager to start stocking it. Ask to speak to them directly or submit a letter with your flavor request.
Why do my pierogies look white and frosty?
Our pierogies are Instantly Quick Frozen (IQF), which can give the dough a frosty appearance. So don’t worry, your pierogies are not actually freezer burned.
Why isn't there a bag inside the box?
We use a Poly Lined and Coated box to protect our pierogies for 18 months after production so there’s no need for a bag inside of the box. Mrs. T’s does offer re-sealable bags in Family Size offerings in Classic Cheddar, Classic Onion, Mini Classic Cheddar, and 4 Cheese Medley flavors.
