Bread and butter on a peanut butter sandwich. Yummy! Hey--don't knock it until you've tried it.

Neither.

Sour Pickles, FTW!

Depends on what I'm in the mood for. Also, Vlasic.

Sweet, because they complement my personality. ::blink, blink. innocent glance::

@mml666: That's what dill means

I'm a dill fan myself.

Well, I can see that there are no pickle connoisseurs here. So if I have to choose, it's dill, garlic dill. Shaken, not stirred.

While it depends on my mood and what I'm eating them with, dill spears and sweet gerkins are generally favorites.

Ritz crackers, cheese (american or chedar) and sweet pickle chips are a good snack.

Bread and Butter is for wimps. Dill, baby, dill!

2 years ago I tried bread and butter. Loved it and are the only ones I now buy. Love the sweetness taste of them more than sour pickles

I prefer dill, although I'll eat a bread and butter. Also, Bubbies is the only brand I buy.

Claussen Hearty Garlic Dill. They are found in the refrigerated section, not on a shelf. I recently tried a jar of Vlasic dill pickles from the shelf -- so disappointed. The flavor wasn't good and they had no crunch compared to the Claussen.

Dill! Preferably Mt. Olive.or Vlasic. Spears or those hard to find dill gherkins. Yummy!

A few years ago I planted cucumbers in a small backyard garden and made my own pickles. The bread and butter ones came out much crispier and better than the dills, so I never tried making dills again. In fact, after making 78 jars of pickles, I never made ANY again! Too much work. I'm leaving it to the pros!

Dill for sure! And Claussen spears make for delicious Caesar cocktails!

@captainsuperdawg: Um...no. There are dill pickles, like the kind you can buy in a jar in a supermarket, and then there are sour pickles - the kind that you can get from a deli, Kosher grocery store or a place like Guss' Pickles in the Lower East Side of NYC.

That's a sour pickle.

Dill. Bread and butter pickles are terrible.

Are you gonna be a Judgy McJudgerstein if I go both ways? And what if I say I like pickled green tomatoes or pickled Dilly Beans or pickled asparagus or...

Face it. I like pickles.

Sour, straight outta the brine.
Then Dill
bread and butter/sweet gherkins tie for the bronze.

Ooooh! FRIED dill pickles, too!

@belyndag: With or without Ranch dressing?

If I only have 2 choices I choose dill, but I much prefer the Hot & Spicy dill pickle variety! Nothing like eating an ice-cold pickle and breaking a sweat!! ;->

@lavikinga: Either way (but I prefer WITH).

vote-for2vote-against

Both! I love pickles! And olives! But Kalamata olives definitely reign supreme!

Dill or nil!

Edit: We make a pretty darned good home-canned pickle down here, so I'm not a brand lover.

@jsimsace: Tell me more of your magical ways. I'm on the verge of taking the pickling plunge.

I'm glad I can trust so many of you! I knew we liked you for a reason.

vote-for3vote-against

claussen dill for sure! Mmmmm, love me some pickles ;)

vote-for2vote-against

I cannot be the first poster to know the real truth-- PICKLES ARE DISGUSTING. Barf.

vote-for3vote-against

I prefer Dill...but garlic dill, or hot and spicy dill

If I had to go for a brand, and not a local pickle guy...or some super yummy pickles from the pickle fest, I'd have to say Claussen.

I love love love all pickles, though I can't stand cucumbers :) My Mom used to can the best bread & butter pickles, but my Aunt borrowed the recipe and she didn't get it back before she passed many years ago. So now we buy them at the farmers market.

@gatzby: I shouldn't take the credit. By "we" I meant my in-laws here in the south. I don't actually do the canning, just the enjoying. Sorry. :( @cowboydann: The apology extends to you as well. I don't contribute as much as I enjoy.

@jsimsace: haha thanks for introducing me to this thread. Don't know why you're apologizing to me. but it's okay :) Look forward to seeing you at DWchat next week hopefully!

It has to be dill, even when it is pickle relish. No sweet or bread'n'butter for me, no sir. Dill is what goes in my deviled eggs, potato salad, pasta salad, sandwiches, burgers, dogs (yes hot dogs, with tomato slices too) and tartar sauce.

And who can resist a baby dill? They're so cute! My kids and I can polish off a whole 32oz jar in one sitting.

When I was a kid, I used to save up my allowance to buy one of those giant pickles from the gallon jar at the roller skating rink.

Dill. It's what every cucumber aspires to be.

Store bought? Boars Head Dill Spears!

But, I make my own bread & butter pickles. Sooo, they win for me!

I only like the pickles you get into in life or while playing baseball.

I am late to the discussion, but I just had to speak up for bread and butter pickles. I buy them home canned when I can get them, as the store bought ones just aren't right. But they are still best when I can't get home made. My second favorite is Polish pickles (not kosher-- too salty). They are pretty hard to find anymore. As a matter of fact I am making egg salad lettuce wraps for dinner tonight, and chopped bread and butter pickles and the juice from them are key to the recipe.
