I got a pickle, I got a pickle. I got a pickle, hey hey, hey hey!

Nikki and I love pickles but we are very picky about the type of pickles we eat. They have to be crunchy and kept in the refrigerator. Our favorite brand has been Claussen which you can find in the refrigerated section of most grocery stores and it still is but only for dill. We have a new favorite for bread & butter and have also added a new pickle to our pantry, the sweet & hot, both made by Tony Packo's. Some of you may recognize the name because they have been around making homemade pickles, relish, chili, and much more since the 1930's. The restaurant was also highlighted in the TV show M*A*S*H by Corporal Max Klinger who was originally from Toledo, Ohio where Packo's is located. Now they are a little more expensive then your typical grocery pickle so I would categorize them as more of a gourmet pickle. The sweet hots are our new favorite and they are absolutely delicious. They are cut thick and are packaged with peppers to add a little spice. Unlike Claussen pickles you can store them in the pantry until you open them but if like them crunchy you'll want to stick them in the fridge a little while before you break open a new jar. If you get a chance to try them, let us know what you think.
