I am not a condiment girl. I am one of those weirdos that will eat hot dogs and hamburgers plain with a few exceptions Those exceptions are, if you care, (and if you’re reading this, then I suppose you might) bacon & cheese (duh), avocados, onions….and pickles. I really like pickles, especially on burgers.
I was sent some pickles to try from Nathan’s Famous Pickles.
These pickles have been a big deal in the USA for awhile, but are just making their Canadian debut this year! Nathan’s Famous Pickles started at a small hot dog stand in Coney Island, New York in 1961.
I tried Kosher Dills (kosher means that delicious garlic has been added to the brine) and their Half Sour Pickles. Why sour?The longer the cucumbers remain in the brine, the sourer they become. Half-Sours are extra crispy and keep their fresh cucumber color.
I really enjoyed these delicious pickles! The sour pickles were something I hadn’t had before, and they gave a nice crisp kick to my burger. I have to say that their Kosher Dill pickles were my favouite. The brine wasn’t overwhelming and I liked the garlic taste. The pickles were nice and crispy!
So, where can you buy these pickles? Keep an eye out for them at Loblaws, Fortinos, ValuMart and No Frills!
