STOP EVERYTHING YOU'RE DOING, because today is national pickle day and we have the perfect promotional pickle products to go with it!
National Pickle Day is observed annually on November 14. Be it Dill, Gherkin, Cornichon, Brined, Kosher Dill, Polish, Hungarian, Lime, Bread and Butter, Swedish and Danish, or Kool-Aid Pickle. Whichever your choice of pickle is, we encourage you to eat them all day long. The term pickle comes from the Dutch word pekel, meaning brine. Pickles were a popular food some 4,000 years ago, when cucumbers were first imported from India, as they weren't commonly found in Europe or North Africa.

How to Celebrate Pickle Day
The real way to celebrate this day, and I’m sure you’ll agree, is to consume as many pickles as humanly possible. You can eat them straight of of a jar (use a fork you animal) but if you feel like trying your hand at a new dish, why not try whipping up a traditional Polish pickle soup?
