Koolickle Pickles

Koolickles have been making the rounds in foodie circles for a while, especially since an article appeared in the New York Times this spring (photo source). They're pickles marinated in brine with an added boost of Kool-Aid. A popular item in the Mississippi Delta, grape and cherry are the most common.

Double Quick, a chain of convenience stores based out of Indianola, Miss is expected to launch prepacked Koolickle Pickles in the USA. Currently the sugar/flavor boosted pickles at home-spun stores go for 50 cents to $1.00 per pickle. Double Quick has been selling the unbranded Kool-Aid pickles for at least a year, but has been attempting to trademark the Koolickle name. Kool-Aid has already given tacit endorsement to this off-label use of the drink mix, but I could find no mention of whether or not they'll contest the use of "Kool" in the name of the new brand of pickles.

Anyone tried them?

Koolickles are DELICIOUS! I saw them on an episode of Good Eats on FoodNetwork and just had to try them. It was an excellent decision, b/c they are now a staple in my fridge and an awesome sweet and sour snack!

They're great. You bite into one, you get a sweet, fruity exterior, with a tart pickle center. And the center tends to stay green.
