We all have that mate that eats pickles from the jar, and could probably wash down the juice, too.
But do they like pickles enough to freeze them and eat them in ice lolly form? If the answer is yes, then they’re going to like this recipe…
In case you’ve missed it, people have started making pickle popsicles on social media, and whilst they may be a pickle lover’s dream, the rest of us could well be left a little queasy.
We first spotted this concoction on Reddit, on the page r/cursedfoods (in this case, very apt).
“You gotta try it,” wrote user u/mry13, alongside a picture of six popsicle sticks filled with dill pickle juice.
And sure enough, in the comments, pickle loyalists were quick to claim that they were also into the lollies.
Keen to see if pickle lollies had spread beyond Reddit (and to check if we were going barking mad) we had a dig on TikTok – and what do you know?, people are knocking them up on there, too.
After trying it, he described the creation as “so sour and crunchy,” and said he was also a fan.
User @trojan_atp also shared their own video making pickle pops, covering them in Tajin, which is a Mexican chilli and lime seasoning.
We’ll admit, the spicing here definitely makes it seem more appetising – but still, that’s a hell of a lot of vinegary pickle juice to slurp.
