Everything about this brand is just simple, elegant and so NYC. I learned about McClure’s Pickles at some flea market in Brooklyn. I literally want to buy EVERYTHING from their online store, but unfortunately they ship within the U.S. only (and I live in the forgotten place called Europe). There are three things in the world that I love the most: chips, pickles, and Bloody Marys. McClure’s Pickles brand happens to have all three of them. And I can’t even buy a bloody Bloody Mary Mix without having to jump on a flight, for god’s sake.
Since I’m a fan of pickles and chips, imagine what is going on in my mouth when I eat the combination of the two. Pickle-flavored chips are indeed one of my favorite treats. And McClure’s Garlic Dill Pickle chips are one the best in their category: crunchy, briny, garlicky and salty (but not too salty). Certainly better than Lay’s Dill Pickle and also, when I think about it, I think I prefer a crinkle cut. I can picture them as the perfect side for just about anything. I also love the simplicity in McClure’s packaging design.
Read their story HERE and the crazy story about how they expanded their business into potato chip market can be found HERE. I honestly think they should open a restaurant.
Bought and eaten in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
My rating: 8.5/10.
