If so please enlighten me - however, I think none can compare.

If only there was a way to make Claussen pickles super-spicy

Protip - chilies/jalapenios. Throw them into the brine, let it sit for a few weeks or so. I dunno what the expiration is on a jar, but it should be well inside that. Should liven things up a bit

Plus one to this. Their mustard pickles are the best.

Claussen is the best store bought.

Polski Wyrob was a spicier version of the Claussen.

Sadly, they are no more.

Famous Dave's are pretty good; sweet and hot. I like the chips better than spears.

I like to have my Pickle tickled....

I feel ashamed to admit this but only recently did I start putting chopped onions, sandwich sliced (flat) claussens, and habenaro hot sauce on my hot dogs. It's like a whole new world of hot dogginess.

Those were good, I miss them.

I gotten hooked on these. They are hard to find. Harris Teeter is the place I can find them.

I think Mt Olive was involved with the Polski. Maybe theirs are similar. I'll see if I can find them here.

My mouth is watering!

i like mt. olive jalepno spears but my local kroger quit carrying them. I've still got a jar in the fridge though. Vlasic is good too.

I can find the spears in most grocery stores, but the whole pickles are cruncher and, IMO, taste better.

Claussen is the best.

Of the others mentioned in this thread, I've either never heard of them (not widely available), or I know they're not as good.

They ship anywhere.

I'm up north and have their Sour pickles shipped up here all the time.



As for making pickles hot, I have always swapped out the pickle juice with juice from a jar of bananna peppers, vary the ratio to make hotter or not.

There used to be some called Wyjeski Wyrobi (I may have spelled that wrong) and they were my favorite. They may have been Texas only.

I grew up "a little Jewish boy from Brooklyn." For me, it's Ba'Tampte Garlic Dill Pickles. My kids love 'em, too. They remind of the Saturday deli lunches that we'd have at my Grandmother's house.

Claussen.

There's just something about getting the nice cold jar of baby dills out of the refrigerated section. Now I look at the pickles on the shelf next to the katsup and think "yuk" they're probably mushy and full of seeds.

Claussen are crunchy, garlicy and the seeds are very small. I literally ate a whole jar last night.

Pickles are serious business to me. The cucumber kind.

Ba'Tampte Garlic Dill Pickles are a close second.

ABSOLUTELY!!!!!! Get your hands on a jar of " Tony Pacos". They are available in Ohio, Indiana and select stores. Google for website. They will run your pucker factor off the chart!!!

I must admit I've trounced a better part of a jar at a time with Claussens, and every once and a while with a little dusting of salt

Although I've also demolished many a jar of little baby sweet cocktail dills.
