Pickles are annoyingly addictive for some - and no, we're not just talking about pregnant ladies!

Thankfully, if you want a bucketload of bitter pickle brine balanced with some serious sweetness, your life is about to get a whole lot better. So long, sour candy. Gummy pickles are a reality and they taste just like the real thing!

Watch the trailer for vat19's gummy pickles below:

The gummy pickles are manufactured by American curiosity company vat19, which is famed for its ability to turn just about anything into a gummy, including gummy pizza and gummy army men.

The pickle's product description reads: "Previously if you were a fan of brined cucumbers and delicious gummy goodness, snack-searching would put you in a real pickle. But with the Gummy Pickle, you get the best of both worlds."

This ice cream shop launched pickle-flavoured gelato: 

The product description continues: "This all-gummy 'vegetable' is flavoured like a sour dill pickle with the chewy texture of gummy. While still slightly sweet, the predominantly pickle flavour and realistic appearance will trick your taste buds into thinking you plucked it right from the jar.

"If you're a pickle fan, you're sure to love this gummy treat - warts and all."

The pickles have been created with the real thing in mind, according to vat19, and they are roughly the same size, with the addition of the bumps and stem that you'd find on any self-respecting pickle.

Described as "girthy gherkin", vat19 also promoted the product by writing, "When you've got a craving for the unique taste of a pickle, you won’t be satisfied with a simple slice or a spear; you want to dig your hand into the jar and pull out a whole one. That’s why the Gummy Pickle is made with substantial size.

"Boasting over a quarter pound of solid gummy, the American-made candy is more than enough to sink your teeth into. And instead of a crisp crunch, your mouth will be greeted with soft and chewy gummy."

Unfortunately, like many gummies, the gummy pickle isn't vegetarian.

The gummy pickle isn't the cheapest sweet treat on the market, but we think that it's worth it, and it will set you back $6.59 a pickle. However, it does come with free shipping within the US, where it is manufactured.

If this sounds like the pickle of your dreams, the gummy is available to purchase here.
