There are two types of people in this world, those who love pickles and those who hate them. If you happen to be one of those who fall into the ‘love’ category, you are going to adore the new food product on the market.
I’m talking about the pickle ice pop.
When the weather warms up and we head outside, we often cool off with a nice frozen popsicle treat. Not only are they refreshing, but they also are cheap and they keep the kids happy too. Adults also appreciate the taste of popsicles and pickle lovers around the world are not cheering.
Pickle popsicles are coming to a store near you.
How many of us run out to the store to try the latest flavor of chip or cookie. We might even wonder from time to time where those flavors have been when suddenly, they are a part of our lives.
Back on the subject of pickle popsicles, there are going to be some people out there who don’t quite understand the hype. After all, pickles tend to be sour and even the sweet varieties have a tangy edge. How can you enjoy a pickle popsicle when the flavor doesn’t line up with a traditional popsicle?
It all comes down to taste, and you are probably curious.
Are they really all they are cracked up to be? Will it be love at first sight (or taste) or does it have to grow on you?
I guess there is only one way to find out.
All you have to do is head over to Amazon and pick up a pack of 8 for $9.27.
Another question that most people will have is if it is actually made out of a pickle.
Sad to say, no, but it is pickle flavored. It is, however, made out of a common ingredient found in pickle jars, brine.
Other ingredients include water, vinegar, salt, glycerine, calcium citrate, monopotassium phosphate, sodium benzoate, natural flavoring, magnesium citrate, guar gum, turmeric, and xantham gum.
That’s quite a list but don’t worry, they claim it is good for you.
In fact, the product is recommended for athletes to help prevent muscle cramps and to rehydrate.
You’ll also be happy to know that it has zero calories.
People on Amazon love these popsicles.
The product has 4 out of 5 stars with over 400 views. It is also the 4th best selling product in its category.
Some people consider it to be a novelty instead of a healthy snack.
According to the top review, it is “A funny surprise for guests,” and that it’s “SUPER fun to offer to people who are over at my house though. Sometimes they’ll say that they love pickles so they’ll TOTALLY eat the whole thing… seeing their face after the first lick is hilarious.”
Yes, you could prank your friends with it but then again, you don’t want to be known as the popsicle guy from then on.
Van Holten’s is the company behind the pickle popsicle. They also make other pickle products.
You can enjoy them as a sickle pickle in a pouch or a bulk pack of pickles. Life is good.
The single pickles in a pouch come in 11 flavors. You can go with the standard flavors or even sour, hot and spicy or garlic Joe.
The company does more than sell pickle products. They also give to various charities, including the Boys and Girls Clubs of America.
