A Cold War Pickle from Occupied Czechoslovakia
 
When Marta was a girl, the seeds of change were in the air.  The Prague Spring was loosening the grip of Communism on Czechoslovakia, bringing newfound freedoms and better pickles.  The Warsaw Pact, clinging to their soggy pickles and outdated ways, invaded in August of 1968 to halt reform and sickle the pickle. 
 
Having tasted freedom and a better pickle, Marta escaped in the night with the secret recipe for The Occupied Pickle, hidden safely in the lining of her jacket. 
 
For two decades, The Occupied Pickle remained a symbol of the revolution.  Speaking of it was a crime, recipe books were burned and those caught making it were hauled away in the night.  Soggy Soviet spears were a bitter reminder on the dinner plate.
 
In 1989 Soviet control began collapsing and “Down with the Sickle, Up With the Pickle” become a rallying cry.  The revolution reached Czechoslovakia and The Occupied Pickle returned from exile, ending decades of communist oppression and soggy rationed pickles. 
 
Taste the revolution!

    I really love good pickles. I ordered one jar together with their wonderful Sweet Jalapeños to try. WOW! My wife and I fell in love with them, nicely fresh and crunchy, wonderful taste, dilly sweet and sour, not overwhelming, just right. So, oops, I had to order a 3pack right away. I'll get more down the road. Don't want to run out of these gems.

    These are my favorite. I'm in NC, and had them the first time in San Diego. Now I can order them, and it makes everything else better. Pickles do that.

    DELICIOUS! Every time the fridge opens it is a child grabbing another chip! They are so tasty and have been consumed as a snack!

    Nice crunch, not as salty as most pickle chips, mild flavor.Ê Nice on burgers.
