Welcome To Taste of States a place where we celebrate the weird and wonderful food of the United States of America. This can be everything from the snacks that are available for a limited time to the foods that are classic traditions at events such as Christmas and Thanksgiving! Each week we will explore the facts and the history surrounding a different food.
PICKLES AND ICE CREAM
Today’s food from the States comes from a very different ideology to normal – it became a thing because it started apparently because it was a craving for pregnant women. Apparently according to many articles, it became a craving because of the mix of salty and sweet.
However, even though they are predominantly a classic pregnancy craving, there is one place in Manhattan’s Upper East Side called The Lucky Pickle Dumpling Co that started to serve Pickle Soft Ice Cream.
If you fancy a portion of Pickle soft serve ice cream you can purchase it for $5. According to reviews, the ice cream is similar to the taste of ‘cucumber frozen yogurt’. Even though it is predominantly made of fresh cucumbers it also has the brine flavour of sour pickle to it, saying that, people have praised it for tasting like a ‘palate cleanser’,
