#296 – It’s Phickles Pickles Day at Star Provisions! Meet the Phickle Pickle Chefs & Sample The Phickles Today – Saturday, November 20, 2010


Have you heard the story of the Christmas Pickle? According to tradition, in Old World Germany, the last decoration placed on the Christmas tree was always a pickle, carefully hidden deep in the boughs. Legend has it that the observant child who found it on Christmas Day was blessed with a year of good fortune…and a special gift! What would you say if I told you where you could find your own special Pickles for Christmas this year?

Athens, Georgia’s own Phickles Pickles will be at Star Provisions today – Saturday, November 20, 2010 from 11:00 AM until 4:00 PM – for the first Phickles Day! Now, these pickles may not technically be lucky, but you should consider yourself lucky to have a chance to try these delectable treats and meet their creators, the Phickles chefs, Angie and Phin Tillman. pickle-lover-by-chefranden-on-flickr

Made from their own secret family recipe, Phickles are no ordinary pickles. They are anything but! These gourmet pickles come in lots of delicious varieties: Okra (featured recently in Garden & Gun magazine), Jalapeños (Hotties and Not-So-Hotties), Snap Beans, Carrots, Green Tomatoes, and seasonal varieties such as Asparagus, Celery and (of course) Cucumbers. I am a Phickle-lover – the first time I tried them I completely fell in love with their spicy, vinegar-y goodness. And I think you will, too.

Now of course, you can buy Phickles at Star Provisions anytime – they now carry them in the store regularly. But today is a phantastic, phun opportunity for you to meet the Phickles crew, sample some of their phabulous Phickles, and replace every “f” with a “ph” for the day! Phickles make great gifts – just in time for you to start your holiday and Christmas shopping – but I warn you to buy extra! Once you try them, you’ll want to keep them all for yourself!
