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?

These are the best jarred pickles I have tried, and are as good or better than any fresh or refrigerated pickles.(Styles differ, of course-fresh, half sour, etc.) The crunch is great and the flavors are bright. They also make a pickle relish that is excellent.

These pickles are packed with flavor and crunch.
The garlic dill is my favorite and the spicy was a little to spicy for me. Then again I only like mild foods. Just the right combination of pickling ingredients makes for a nice pickle.

These pickles are better than advertised.
We all enjoyed them and had the same reaction.
"They are Pickleicous"

Just one word all you need is 'BEST' for this pickles.
I tasted first in the brooklyn's flea market, and loved it at first sight!
I am now living in MN, but still ordering these awesome pickles.
I am willing to pay more money on ordering these pickles instead of buying some other brands' pickles by paying less.
