Pickle Pops Sun, 06/28/09 9:28 PM (permalink)


The newest treat to beat the heat.
I have seen them around town in most freezer cases. I talked to the store owner and he had them in the promotional box. Two flavors, regular and jalapeno.


The box says "Enjoy them frozen or unfrozen' ...I am not going to say anything negative, maybe someone here likes them.

      At an online price of about $1.00 per Pop or $10.00 per bottle of pickle juice, has everyone in Texas gone crazy from the heat?  If you want pickle juice, just buy a jar of pickles and drain the juice off.  That way, you can eat the pickles and also freeze the juice or drink it.  Believe it or not, every jar of pickles I have ever seen comes with FREE juice!

            so...  appears to be basically a pickle juice popsicle.

            I'd try one.  I have a hard time believeing they'd be addictive though.

              I take a couple sips of pickle juice if I have the hiccups.  Or, if I buy a pickle in a pouch I do drink that juice. For real, why not just make your own?  Surely most of us have a couple ol' timey ice trays laying around! I COULD do it but think I'll choose not to.

                Well, to be honest.... knowing there is a product out there that I can easily recreate at home probably means I will.

                  A dollar for a bit of pickle juice. How the hell did this get marketed and people fall for it?

                  I guess its true..a sucker is born every minute.

                    just reading this thread gave me acid reflux. People actually drink pickle juice? I LOVE pickles, but do not and would not drink the juice - frozen or straight-up.

                      Funny, because a year or two ago a guy was asking (in the pro forum) for suggestions for his softball park concession stand.  I suggested using condiment cups to freeze leftover pickle juice in, and sell for .25 or .50 - and I think he thought I was insane.  But they're a HUGE seller at the concession stands I work for my kids games here in TX.

                      Our sno-cone stand even sells sour pickle sno-cones, lime-salt optional.

                        I have seen them in some form for about 20 years or so around NC. I even remember the local skating rink selling pickle juice "sodas" which my ex-girlfriend's kids loved.

                            I use pickle juice as a mixer for Sam Hill Hooker shots. Basically it is 75% sour mash whiskey and 25% dill pickle juice. Yummy!!! I also use pickle juice in my Bloody Mary mix. It gives it a nice twang.

                            I've seen a lot of hairbrained ideas but this is right at the top of the list.
                            What's next, raccoon on a stick ?

                              I spent a lot of time in the former Sov Union in the early 80's and in the countryside I'd often come across this drink that was a cross between grape juice and vinegar.  The first sip was quite a shock but after that it was really thirst quenching.  So I'm thinking if this pickle stuff has sugar in it, they may be on to something.

                                We sell a lot of Bob's Pickle Pops in our drive-in theatre concession stand. We have some customers that come here just to get them, & don't care what movie is playing! Some customers see them on sale & are totally disgusted!  ..I need to order another case.

                                  At one time, who would ever thought selling bottled water would be such a hit?

                                      Along similar lines, while in Clarksdale, Mississippi, heading for Abe's Barbecue at The Crossroads, we stopped at a gas station to ask for directions and encountered a colorful sign advertising "Pickoola".  The sunglasses wearing, big, bright pinkish/reddish, semi-anthropomorphic pickle that dominated the sign promised the buyer a dill pickle "marinated with non-carbonated soft drink mix" for fifty cents apiece.

                                      It sounded ghastly, but being the adventurous Roadfooder I am, and since it was only going to cost me a half a buck, I decided I had to find out what a Pickoola tasted like.  Upon requesting a Pickoola from the service station's proprietor, I found out they stopped carrying the product months earlier and never bothered to remove the sign.

                                      So now I live in ignorance, never having had a chomp of a Pickoola.  Maybe that is the true meaning of the phrase, "Ignorance Is Bliss".

                                      If I ever figger out how to post a photo here, I'll show you a picture of the sign.
