Those of you who know me know my deep love for Phickles Pickles. Owner and Phickle Chickle, Angie Tillman and her husband, Phin, are the rock stars behind this Phickle-mania. I first met them at Star Provisions during Cheese Week back in September 2010, and am proud to not only be in love with their pickles but also to call them friends.
Phickles is a”phairy” tale story of sorts. What started as a hobby about two years ago led Angie and Phin to sell their Phickles to local Athens bars and restaurants for bloody Mary garnishes…and the rest is history. Thanks to Angie’s social media savvy (she’s is a darling of the Twitter foodie set, tweeting as both @angieti and @phicklespickles), the business has grown by leaps and bounds. Features in publications like Garden & Gun and Deep South Magazine haven’t hurt either. Angie says, “I’m glad we’re getting a chance to do what we really love! …that we really can make a living out of just being us!”
I was an immediate fan of Phickles. I bought four jars – okra (“Okies”) and carrots (“Stix”) for me, and green tomatoes (“Wedgies”) and jalapeños (“Hotties”) for my dad, a pickle fanatic like me. My hubby and I ate the entire jar of Stix in one sitting while watching TV one night – how’s that for a healthy snack?
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 – I love their spicy, vinegar-y goodness. And I think you will, too.
Phickles make great gifts for the pickle-lover in your life or for that special foodie on your list. I like to give them as hostess gifts, holiday gifts, and keep a case or two stocked in my kitchen, you know, for pickle emergencies. After all, this is the South – when push comes to shove (or when unexpected guests drop by), a pickle platter is always a good addition to your table. Angie and Phin sell to specialty shops all over the southeast (you can find them here in Atlanta at shops like Star Provisions and Savi Urban Market), but you can order Phickles by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and have them shipped directly to you! For just 4 jars for $40, 6 jars for $50, and 10 jars for $75 (including shipping!) that’s great convenience during this busy, bustling holiday season!
