I’ve seen my fair share of weird food combinations, but I don’t think anything could prepare me for pickle pops.
No, they’re not just pickles on a popsicle stick, they’re frozen pickle juice ice pops. If that doesn’t scream delicious, I don’t know what does.
I’m a pretty big fan of pickles, so I was curious about this icy treat. I’ve had pickle juice before, too, but I never thought about freezing it to munch on during the hot summer months.
(A pickle pop a day keeps the haters away)
There’s more to these ice pops than meets the eye, however. Not only are they great to eat when you need to cool down, some athletes drink pickle juice to alleviate cramping. Who would’ve thought?
After discovering this information, I was even more intrigued to try the pops. I ordered a pack online and patiently awaited their arrival.
Once they made it my way, I popped them in my freezer to solidify overnight.
The next day it was time for a little taste test.
(Ignore my gross nails)
I cut the top off of one, admired the neon-green hue for a sec and then chomped down on the salty treat.
I forgot how vinegary pickles are, but was quickly reminded once I took my first bite. My face instantly puckered up, but it really wasn’t all that bad. I actually kind of liked the briny popsicle flavor.
I don’t think I could eat an entire case of them in one sitting, like I could with any other popsicle flavor, but I can see myself eating one every so often.
It’s definitely a treat for all of you out there who aren’t too into sugary things. Trust me when I say you don’t need a sweet tooth to enjoy this sour pop.
I can’t attest to the pickle pops’ ability to relieve cramps after any sort of strenuous exercise, especially because I do no such thing, but I wouldn’t completely write it off.
If you’re an athlete, it may be worth giving these guys a try. After all, nothing is more thirst quenching than pickle juice.????
I’m guessing I’ve piqued your interest in these guys, so if you want to order some of your own, you can do so HERE.
Speaking of ways to cool off this summer, we suggest a visit to the Museum of Ice Cream in Los Angeles, California. We were lucky enough to check it out and HERE are the exhibits we enjoyed the most during our time there.
