Who likes a good pickle? I know I do. I can hardly walk pass when I see a stand selling pickles. It takes me back to my younger days when I think you could dip into a barrel and get a good dill pickle for less than a buck.
Well, bring back the memories because Rick’s Picks, launched in 2004 by Rick Field, has a pickle for every pickle lover. “From fun to hobby to obsession” says Rick, is how his business started.
With more than 14 varieties available, Rick offers packages including “The Sampler” for the pickle connoisseur with 11 varieties from sweet to spicy; the “Pickle Party Pack”; his “Topseller Pack” which features his best selling pickles or even a “Pickle Club” for the pickle enthusiast which will keep you crunching on pickles for a year.
All pickles are natural, hand made and hand packed. If you love ‘em straight from the jar (my favorite); want to use them in salads or other ways, you won’t be left in a pickle when it comes to ideas because at www.Rickspicksnyc.com, you’ll find some recipe suggestions as well.
Rick’s Picks have been featured in O: The Oprah Magazine and also in The New York Times, New York Press, and New York Magazine. I was lucky enough to meet Jina Kim, directory of Sales and Marketing at a holiday gift show earlier this year and that’s when I got my chance to “discover” these cleverly named pickles.
Names such as “phat beets” (pickled beets), “spears of influence” (think dirty martini, ummmm), or even “kool gherks (whole dill) are among Rick’s picks. These pickles are low sodium, low sugar and low carb yet a great source of vitamins, minerals and fiber.
Think Rick’s Picks for the upcoming holiday season for yourself or the pickle lover on your list. With seven different gift packs available be sure and stop by his web site at www.rickspicksnyc.com and place an order. There’s a pickle and a price range for everyone. The People’s Pickle, described as “good old deli style” is one of the newest choices.
