Pickle juice is a thing that apparently a lot of people enjoy, so much so that pickle juice soda became a big deal earlier this month.
This week what’s making headlines are pickle-flavored popsicles. There are a few kinds too. Maybe you’ve had Bob’s Pickle Pops before?
Or, from the company that’s brought you the popular pickle in a pouch, Van Holten’s now has Pickle-Ice:
The idea for pickle popsicles sprung up with athletes in mind as it’s been common for those participating in sports to drink pickle juice to help stay hydrated.
Pickle popsicles have supposedly been popular in the south for a while so it’s no surprise a few pickle-friendly companies are jumping on the trend.
Bob’s Pickle Pops don’t seem to be available in stores yet in California, but Van Holten’s pickle popsicles will be available in Wal-Marts starting in July.
Pickle juice is also used as a hangover cure in the southern U.S. & parts of Eastern Europe. So, there’s an alternative to Gatorade, or Pedialyte.
