    They’re just pickled cucumbers with dill right?

    Does anyone else sigh when they’re called “pickles”? Like cucumbers are the only thing you pickle. Dumb Americanism.

    Bless yo’ heart, did ah say it wrong?
    Gherkins, dill pickles, pickled cucumber, I’ll call them what I like, and I could care less if y’all don’t like it.

    Wow, I started this in 2009. 11 years ago, crazy to think thats what was on my mind and that particular moment in time.

    Picked up some Mrs Elswood Cucumber Spears with Dill, they have that McDonalds Gherkin aroma and come close to the taste but just fall short, I notice they do "Burger Gherkins" but it doesn't seem like the big supermarkets stock them, I wonder if these are any closer to the holy grail of Gherkins

    "Why do they put that gherkin in, everyone lifts the lid off, takes it out and puts it on the table for some other ******* to put their elbow in it."

    or those people who order food and ask for no gherkins.

    I wonder how much dirt or spit they are in their life time

    Got these guys today, almost almost there to McD style Gherkins in smell and taste, good enough that I might stop looking and settle on these whenever I want to make a burger
