Sunday NFL Taste Test: Pickles

We put three dills against each other to see which pickle is ideal for your sandwich on gameday.

Sure, you’ve got the 116″ flat screen that hasn’t even been released yet, the speakers that have already caused your elderly neighbors to call the police, and the oversized couch made from the skin of only the cutest of baby seals, but have you thought about what’s really important: What snacks are you going to put on the table? We hit the supermarket and put our editors through a rigorous blind taste test of snack foods to help you decide what to bring home for the big game on Sunday. Check back every Friday throughout football season for a new snack-food face-off.

Brand: Vlasic

: $2.28

Score: 5.53

Coming in third place, the Vlasics lacked crunch and OD’ed on salt.


“A little flimsy”


“So garlicy. Was this stuck up Super Mario’s ass?!”

Brand: ShopRite

Price: $2.30

Score: 6.06

This store brand stood toe-to-toe with the expensive shit – and came out (mostly) clean!


“Good crunch”


“A bit bland”

And the winner is…

Brand: Mt. Olive

Price: $3.68

Score: 6.44

The classic Mt. Olive’s came out on top, mostly because they taste like the ones mommy used to pack you for lunch.



“Great crunch”

“Tastes like my childhood”
