Pearl onions, I have never seen them frozen so I have always just used fresh. Guess you can find them frozen in fancy gourmet stores?

I've seen frozen pearl onions in many non-gourmet supermarkets. They also come canned. I never use fresh ones because it's too labor intensive to take the skins off.

I have never, ever seen them frozen here in my slice of Florida (and I've looked!).
If you blanch the little suckers, the skin comes right off!

I've seen them frozen-Birdseye . The birdseye has plain & in the cream sauce.

(Ah, I found a pic of the bag of Birdseye.)

If your food store carries Birdseye, ask them to order for you. They're always a staple at our Thanksgiving table, even though I do NOT like them. Others will want them too, I'm sure.

Our wally-world doesnt seem to think that we are sophisticated enough to know what the heck pearl onions are, lol.
Already emailed the Publix manager with my request, yes, I have his email address, I ask for stuff all the time!

Yellow rice and chicken with peppers, olives, cappers, chickpeas, onion and tomato sauce cooked with beer is delicious and one of my favorite dishes.
