Okay - i am really just trying to settle a debate here. My girlfriend insists that it was perfectly normal for her to have pickles with peppermint sticks shoved inside of them when she was young. She's from Chicago, so I don't know if this is normal.
It sounds disgusting. She also has a habit of not remembering things quite right.
Any thoughts? Is this normal anywhere? Does this sound vaguely like anything anyone would ever want to eat?
