You might not expect something sweet like candy to pair well with something that has a sour flavor, like a pickle, but it actually works surprisingly well! The recent surge in popularity of pickles might make you think twice about underestimating their appeal as a flavor pairing, even with something as seemingly conflicting as candy. That’s right, pickle-flavored candy is a thing and its popularity only continues to grow!

While some of these products may be perceived as more of a “gag gift” many of them are actually quite appealing to anyone who loves pickles, and loves candy. Even if you’re not a pickle enthusiast yourself, odds are that someone you know and care about most certainly is. That is why these products are a great gift or stocking stuffer for that person in your life who simply cannot get enough pickle flavor on their taste buds.

But pickles certainly aren’t anything new. They’ve been used by human civilizations for thousands of years. Cleopatra is said to have eaten them to maintain her beauty. The food was even mentioned at least two times in the Bible (Numbers 11: 5 and Isaiah 1:8). The King himself, Elvis even loved pickles, though he preferred them to be deep-fried!

Whether you like homemade pickles with dill and garlic cloves, pickle juice, refrigerator pickles, pickle pizza or even if you fancy something as sweet as Kool-Aid pickles, or pickle cotton candy, it turns out that you’re in luck! The pickle renaissance has clearly sprung upon us in recent years. While these green colored healthy snacks have remained popular for millennia, it seems like we’ve officially reached “peak pickle” in terms of their popularity and abundance.
