We know there are some of you out there who love pickles more than life itself… the people who order extra gherkins with every burger and stuff ’em in their sandwiches until they barely shut.

But what if we told you that pickle addicts could still take things up a notch?

A sandwich bar in New Jersey has made waves by creating sandwiches that use home-made pickles instead of bread.

Yup, it’s a pickle lover’s fantasy…

Before we tell you more about their sandwiches, why not take a look for yourself? 

Named Peace Love Pickles (what else?!), the eatery, in Haddon Township, first made headlines after it was discovered by the team at Delish, and it’s not hard to see why it has garnered so much hype.

Owned by Katherine Cohen, and inspired by her mother’s pickle sandwiches, the deli features everything from ‘Jersey Devil’, made with turkey, American cheese, Srircha mayo and Flamin Hot Cheetos, and ‘Phat Farm, filled with roast beef, turkey, ham and corned beef. 

Other pickle sandwich fillings include the ‘Italian’, stuffed with ham, Capicola, Salami and Provolone, whilst customers can also try the ‘Taylor Pickle Sandwich’, with hummus, cucumber and roasted red peppers inside.

On top of all the predetermined options, shoppers can also make their own pickle sarnies, picking from a list of ingredients. 

Plus, if love pickle, but not quite enough to stuff a sandwich filling between two of ’em, then why not go for a slightly lighter pickle roll-up instead? Or switch the pickle for cucumber? 

If you care about any of this stuff, the sandwich is also low carb, keto and gluten free – although, lets be honest, that’s not why you’ve turned up at a pickle sandwich shop, is it?!

Unfortunately for Brits, there aren’t any chains of the restaurant over on our soil yet, as it’s just an independent deli.

But we know where we’re going to be headed on our next holiday! New Jersey, anyone?!
