I’m gonna need you to roll with me on this one. I swear I haven’t entirely lost my mind! Keep in mind my promise to you that I wouldn’t post anything less than stellar.
On a more serious note, I have a very intense pickle addiction. Cue Buckwheat singing. The upside to this is that I am not alone. The downside is that people a) think I’m pregnant (I’m NOT) or b) think I have some weird obsession with Snookie (yes I watched all 6 seasons of The Jersey Shore). Assumptions aside, I love dem pickles!
If having a pickle addiction didn’t make me weird enough, apparently I also have an affinity for making strange combinations with pickles. I think it’s time I came out and admitted that one of my favourite snacks is pickles and peanut butter. If you like pickles and you like peanut butter, please do yourself a favour and try out this epic combo! Particularly in hummus form, or better yet a peanut butter and pickle sandwich with peanut butter dill pickle hummus. Yeah that’s gonna happen…Now I can forgive you if you don’t like peanut butter, but pickles? Nope sorry, we’re done.
I kid I kid. I won’t hate you forever! But let’s just say you won’t be joining me on any future foodie adventures. Particularly if they involve The Pickle Guys aka pickle mecca.

If you aren’t, can you at least name the movie I referenced in this post?
