This was in the New York Times' Food & Wine Section the other day. I am not a big fan of pickles. In fact, anyone who goes for casual dining with me, knows that I border on obsessive about harrassing the waitstaff about even getting a pickle near my plate. So to say that Kool Aid Pickles are about the worst thing I've ever heard of is damning with faint praise. Apparently, they're all the rage in the Mississippi Delta, especially amongst school children. Ewwwww.
