It has to do with pickles. So, if you like pickles, read on. (If not, you know you're not going to stop reading anyways, so haha!)
Before I get down to the nitty-gritty, let me just preface this by saying please don't write me off about pickles just because I am pregnant. I like pickles all the time. In fact, once, at a restaurant that had unlimited fries, I asked for a refill on my pickle. No lie. (They actually did it!) And you can also ask my friend Trish, who I once almost throttled because she threw out a large container of perfectly good pickles because she didn't have any room for them in the fridge. Senseless waste, I tell ya.
Okay, so, I have always wondered at the difference between a pickle on the side of your burger at a restaurant and pickles in a jar that you buy at the grocery store. The pickle from a restaurant is so much better- crispy, crunchy, completely yummy. And pickles in a jar are good, too, they are just...different. (In a less good, but still okay way. Did I mention I like pickles?)
So, at the grocery store last Thursday I picked up a jar of pickles and thought nothing of it, until later on, I passed by the refrigerated section, where I spied a sign- "Refrigerated Pickles." Well, before I had always chalked that up to people needing their cold pickle fix in a hurry- nothing I would ever pay extra money for- sort of like refrigerated jello and pudding- I'll eat them at room temp or wait a while before I lay down 50 cents to scratch that itch.
Anyhow, when I got closer, I could see that these pickles looked just like the ones from a restaurant- more white in color than yellow. So, I decided to splurge the extra 35 cents from my other pickle purchase and try them out.
I think you know where this is going...
I will never buy the other kind of pickle again!!!!!
They taste just like the ones from the restaurant. Yum, YUM , yummy yum-yum! So, if you're like minded- make sure to stop by the refrigerated pickle section at your store!
(And, okay, okay, I will admit, that even though my pregnancy hasn't created my love for pickles, it has caused me to eat 2 jars of them since I found them less than a week ago. Fear not, though, I have another jar waiting in the fridge).
Off to eat a pickle! =)
