But the people that ordered them and came back later said they enjoyed them. At the same time we sold out of everything else every day. Gosh what a logistical nightmare, 20,000 people camped on site in the middle of no-where and both of my main suppliers 180 miles away.

You might want to e-mail DaveM. A knowlegable poster with great photos and reports, unfortunatley he no longer contributes as much here anymore. As far as the Foul Balls I'll be in that area next week and I'll take one for the team and give them a try and report back. Chow Jim

    Buy crinkle cut dill chips, lay them on a paper towel to drain a bit. In the meantime mix up a beer batter, add some cajun spices. Dip your chips in the batter and quickly fry in a cast iron skillet. Use brown deli mustard and/or french dressing to dip. My hubby likes em with bleu cheese dressing too.

    I can remember having these when I was tiny at our weekly dinner on the grounds in the summer at Church.

      In the early days, did McDonalds ever offer a pickle burger,or a fried pickle sandwich?

        The Duchess Drive Inn in Atkins, Arkansas began serving fried dill pickles in the summer of 1963. Atkins was the home of the Atkins Pickle Plant and Mr Bernell Austin (the owner of the Duchess) took full advantage of a resource that was plentiful in his town.

          Wandering,
          Evidently they've never heard of Naples, North Carolina (between Asheville and Hendersonville, just off old U. S. 25)! And Gruetli-Laager, Tennessee (part Italian Swiss, part German Swiss). The list goes on and on... there is even an Italian farming community on Clarksville Highway, several miles north of Nashville, Tennessee with its own Catholic parish!
          I was aware that there was a large Italian contingent in Rhode Island, but were any of y'all aware of just how many Italian-Americans there are in West Virginia? Hey, they recruited experienced coal miners to come in there, y'know... and there's coal in them there hills in Northern Italy.
          And, in re. The Hill in St. Louis, EVERYONE oughta know about that... after all, it is The Hill what gave us (correct) the one, the only Yogi Berra! He may live in New Jersey now, but he's from Missouri, and sometimes (as he says) "ya still gotta show me."
          I'm Italian You, Ort. Carlton in Multi-Ethnic Athens, Georgia.
          P. S. There are no indigenous pockets of Italians in Georgia that I am aware of, but we do have a Hungarian community on U. S. 78 between Bremen (settled by Germans) and Tallapoosa, about 50 miles west of Atlanta... place called Budapest. No river runs through it, alas....

              If anyone finds that song on a vinyl 45 record, I need it. I've never been able to find a copy.

              P. S. The Mississippi town is actually Conehatta. It's not too far from Chunky, Scooba, and Electric Mills, and down by Shuqualak. But it's a ways from Rena Lara, Itta Bena, Nitta Yuma, and Panther Burn.

                Maggie,
                Didn't either a fire or a tornado get that pickle plant out of circulation for awhile?
                We used to be able to buy Atkins pickles here in Athens, but in recent time they have disappeared. I guess it's just another locally-owned enterprise that was swallowed up by some giant like ConAgra or some such.

                    Lillie,
                    I'm in Freeport and in the winter time, Larz chicken shack has them. I haven't tried them because Larry started making them only after Shalom at Hog Wild BBQ started doing them. He did Memphis style BBQ and his pickles were addictive. I used to eat them and deep fried jalapenos all the time. *Sniff* I miss his place!

                      Four years of discussion and no photo of fried dill pickles. Here are the appetizers from the Carter Caves State Resort Park Lodge in eastern Kentucky.

                        I had a friend that went to Univ. of New Hampshire and we went to this place. This was my introduction to fried pickles and I absolutely loved em! the sauce that came with them was killer.

                          all the large food companys carry pre breaded pickles 5-6 styles.
                          they also have pre breaded green toematoes,and probably 1000
                          differnt french frys. so it might pay off to ask if they are house made
                          when you order.most of the places around(columbia tn.) use pre breaded ones as with ff and ther bbq sauce but that is another story.

                            Atkins did have a tornado back this past February, but the Pickle Plant was closed 4 years ago. Deans Foods owned it and decided to consolidate operations . It moved production to Texas then dropped the Atkins label. So if you find a jar of Atkins Pickles it is a collectors item now.
