It's becoming harder and harder to find these, I've tried all the other brands and they're nowhere near the same. They all have a funny taste, like cloves or something. Heinz still makes sweet relish, so they must still be making the pickles too...I hope.
On another note, I just tried Mt Olive brand gherkins, and they had a weird taste too, then when I looked on the label to see if I could find out what it was, I noticed on the front, in tiny letters "No Sugar Added". How could this be? Because they add SPLENDA to the juice. Yuck yuck yuck. I partially bought them to use the juice in my macaroni salad for Labor Day, now no way. I'll stick them in the back of the fridge and put them out on Thanksgiving, no one will notice then!
If anyone knows the inside info on Heinz pickles, I'm on Long Island but figure it must be part of the same distribution chain as NYC. Thanks, I need SOMETHING before Labor Day.
