If you’ve been following the whole pickle pop saga, then you know that David Millar from Bob’s Pickle Pops saw my entry and interest in pickle pops and was kind enough to send me some free samples. After you hear about something like frozen pickle pops, you just have to give something like that a try. Plus, I originally dissed them without giving them a fair shake.
So, without further ado…
They were actually different and tasted different too. I thought the new version tasted better, although its appearance was more startling because it has little pickle speckles all through it.
After trying the pickle pops, we all agreed that, well, “They taste pretty much how you expect them to taste.” As I said before, I really love pickles and I have to say I was not really a fan of the pickle pops. They didn’t taste bad exactly…I don’t know how to describe it. It’s like when you’re eating a frozen treat your mouth expects a certain thing and a salty pickle is not that thing. Unfortunately, thumbs down from all 4 of us.
But the experiment was not over. Mr. Millar also mentioned making a “picklerita”. I searched online but didn’t find any recipes, so we had to make our own. I tried with just tequila, but it was improved with more tequila and some triple sec.
(Yes we are making these on the treadmill in the basement so as not to wake the baby)
I have to say, after tasting the pop itself, I did not have high hopes for the picklerita. It actually wasn’t as bad as I was anticipating! Even still, if you have to have a margarita, for my money you are better off with the regular old kind, rather than a picklerita. Although, of course, it did have a certain novelty factor.
But, as you can see, I drank it all:
