Pickles have been one of the foods I have never cared to eat. I pick them off of my burgers and take them off of any plate they come on so that pickle juice doesn’t get on anything else. I can’t say that I have every eaten an entire pickle, just the small bites I have had when I forget to take them off of my burger. So, I figured it was about time I gave them a chance.
Since I am definitely a fan of sweeter foods, I figured it would be best to start with a sweeter pickle. I was walking through Piggly Wiggly the other day, killing time before I had to be somewhere, and I saw a jar of Sweet Midgets. I thought….Perfect! Not only are they sweet, but they are also small. A perfect Starter Pickle.
I started with a couple of licks. Not so bad….but then I bit it! Yuck!! Not good at all! I couldn’t help the crazy faces I was making. (Glad there are no pictures of those) I’m glad to know that I am ok with the texture, but there was just something wrong with the combination of sweet and vinegar.
I have added Sweet Midgets (actually any sweet pickles) into the “No Thank You column”. I haven’t given up hope on all pickles yet though. They always look so good…I am determined to find a pickle I like!!
