We stumbled upon these pickles at the 2008 UNFancy Food Show in Brooklyn...(think of it as the Woodstock of food trade shows).
Joe & Bob McClure have a serious love for pickled cucumbers. Their time is divided between Brooklyn and Detroit, either city can provide the things they need to make their outstanding pickles...locally-grown organic cucumbers, water and their signature blend of spices. There's little else going on inside this jar, but they've captured something special. The fresh flavor of the cucumber is a little bit shocking...super crisp, a little spicy or garlicy (depending on which you choose) and a really nice brightness. We like to stack ham, roasted and sliced pork loin, swiss cheese and one whole pickle inside a sandwich destined for the panini press - you'll never taste a better Cubano.
And those handsome labels? They're printed using vegetable inks on presses powered by wind electricity! How's that for a pickle with pedigree?

I picked these up at William Sonoma, but last time I was there they didn't have them. :-(
I picked up a different brand they had.
The price is a little on the high side, but maybe if they were available in more main stream stores that could change.
I hope when Whole Foods open up they may carry them.

I really expected there to be more than a total of 3 whole pickles in the jar. Total waste of money. Shipping was extremely slow. Took about 8 days to get to me.

We bought these for $12. at Williams-Sonoma becasue they were low in sodium. They are good but not worth $12. $8.00 maybe. Would not buy again.
