Pickles---why?

I understand that, in the old days, pickled vegetables provided needed nutrition and variety during the long winter. But now that fresh vegetables are available all year round, we have a new pickling fad that seems to take up half the Williams-Sonoma catalog. Other than a dill wedge on a hot dog---I grew up in Chicago---I never seem to want one. Not a breakfast food, wine un-friendly for dinner, usually don't eat sandwiches for lunch. And sweet pickles are horrible. IMO. So let's hear from pickle-lovers: What kind do you like, when do you eat them, with what, am I missing out on something good?
