Carolyn's KOOL-AID® Pickles

Rated as 4 out of 5 Stars
16

"The kids I babysit for love these -- red Kool Aid gives ordinary pickles a bright red color and adds fruity sweetness to their normal tang. I'm told they originated in the Southern US. I've also heard they are bar snacks, which may explain a lot. They are pretty, but I have to admit that I don't care for them very much."

Well, these get four stars for their eye catching ability! They weren't bad, but they weren't anything great. Would be great at a Halloween party.
