Our brother blogs in Philadelphia and San Francisco have been all over the recent story of a German company that sells canned cheeseburgers. Canned meat is an aberration unto God and mankind to be sure, but you know what’s even grosser? Frozen pickle juice.
Grub Street recently alerted us to the Pickle Sickle, which is, as the name implies, a pickle-flavored popsicle. A pickle-flavored popsicle. Because everyone is so fond of drinking pickle juice? Because people love sour frozen treats? Because the product’s tagline “The bizarre-tasting ‘pickle’ craze from TEXAS you can’t get enough of” is so wildly appealing? Truly, we are baffled.
We suspect that it’s no coincidence that the word “sick” is right there in the title, so we will certainly not be trying a PickleSickle anytime soon. That being said, we are very interested in hearing from anyone who’s tried one. As always, the tipline is open.
