Great Value is a Walmart brand and as I was searching through the pickles the other day and I saw a jar of 'red' pickle spears under this brand name. The label said "Tropickles" and described them as fruit punch flavored pickles. Of course, I had to try them, I try anything that's new.
The taste was extremely different from any pickle I have ever eaten. It was sweet with a faint resemblance to fruit punch, but mostly just in color. The taste had an undertone of a dill pickle with the fruity sweet taste over tones. Very different.
Now for the big question – Did I like them? Well, I didn't dislike them, but to say I liked them is a stretch. They were good and they were bad. They were sweet and they were sour. The real answer to this question is probably this – I would eat them until the jar was empty, but probably not buy them again.
Healthy? I think not. The dye to make the pickles 'fruit punch red' was enough for me to label it not healthy, but then if you add the sugar content, no – not healthy.
That's my review of the 'red' pickle known as 'Tropickles'. (Cute name though)
What is the most unusual pickle you have tried? What is your favorite pickle? Does this fruit flavored pickle sound like a good one to you? Would you be willing to try it?
