Pickle generally refers to a cucumber that has been sitting in brine or vinegar for most of its adult life. When its ‘pickling’ is complete, it resembles a monster of its former self.
Pickle tastes pretty good. It is a fun food because of its intense color and bizarre texture. It is slightly sour and messy, but still rather portable. It’s often served with sandwich, especially sandwiches with rye bread.
Pickle became an official snack on May 2nd 2012.
