    Proper sour Gherkins seem hard to come by, tried Polish brands and Lidl stuff already and they are all too sweet. Rowats mixed pickle had the best ones but I can't find them anymore.

    Sour Cornichons (Gherkins but smaller) are easier to get.

    My wife got a new brand from the local Polish shop and they are delicious. So crunchy and juicy that I can get enough of them.

    Gherkin is the best bit. The combination with the meat is perfect. So many people seem really nitpicky with burgers removing half of it before they even eat it.

    The worst part of a McDonald's burger is the burger. Seriously they are tasteless rubbish so why would you remove an ingredient that actually adds flavour.

    I can't believe that so many people eat at McDonald's!

    Really? If someone asked me where was the most popular place in the world to eat, they would have been my first thought

    I usually ask for extra pickles in McDonalds. But then I have to have a jar of Lidl's Pickled Gherkins in the house at all times. I'm bloody addicted to them.

    I bought some pickles from Morrisons yesterday, they're okay but they're not at the same level as McDonalds, so in 2020 who offers the gold standard in Gherkins ?

    So do I, they’re the same as dill pickles aren’t they?
    I’ve only been in two McDonalds, both in the U..S., just to use their Wi-Fi and drink their lousy coffee for that privilege.
    I eat dill pickles just like I eat apples, one after the other.
    I’m the same with capsicums, (peppers), crunch crunch, I’m no vegetarian, but I kid myself that I’m doing myself good eating all the pickles, apples, and peppers, plus they all taste great to me.

    Always loved them. Never understood why people take them out.

    Lidl own brand Cornichons dill pickles are by far the best I have found.
