Mt. Olive Pickles Review

We love eating pickles!  My daughter would eat an entire jar if I didn't stop her.  I was really excited to find out that Mt. Olive offers picklePAKS.  These are the cutest!  Ok so what is a picklePAK?  It is a little container, like single serve applesauce comes in, but with pickles.  This is such a wonderful idea.  Sometimes I send my husband to work with a sandwich or something he's like to have pickles with.  I've actually tried putting them in a plastic bag, plastic wrap or even little containers and they end up leaking all over and smelling up the entire lunch.  I love that with the picklePAK I can just put one in his lunch and not have to worry about it making a mess.

What did I think of the picklePAK?  I loved them.  I sampled the Sweet Petites, Kosher Dill Petites and the Jalepeno Slices.  They were all really good.  I can't pick a favorite because they are different.  I love the Kosher Dill Petites.  These have great flavor and crunch.  The tiny little pickles are adorable.  My daughter loved them too!  The Sweet Petites are about the same size as the Kosher Dill Petites.  They are also a cute little pickle.  They are a great size for children.  The Sweet Petites also have a great flavor and are nice and crunchy.  The Jalepeno Slices are excellent too!  We love pickled jalepenos.  I will say that this is a perfect size pack of them.  We don't eat a ton of them at once.  I like that I don't have to worry about a big jar of pickled jalepenos sitting in my fridge forever.  The Jalepeno Slices have a great flavor.  I love that they have a really good amount of heat.  I tend to find that sometimes jalepenos are too mild and these definitely were not.  I would recommend all 3 varieties of picklePaks that I sampled.  They are great for lunches, picnics or even if you don't want to open a big jar of pickles.  I love them for healthy snacking too!

Want to buy your own?  You can check our Mt. Olive Pickles online and search with their G.P.S.  I thought this was adorable when I came across it.  G.P.S.  stands for Global Pickle Search!  If there is a specific variety you are looking for you can try and locate it there.
