Reviews forKool-Aid Pickles
"Had never heard of these before but WOW how fun! Went with a red fruit punch kool-aid and had pickles out for our holiday party - red and green ones. Big hit. Everyone was fascinated by them. This would definitely make a good recipe for kids, too. Such an easy and fun snack!"
"Delicious. I've done mine just a bit different though. I drain and save the pickle juice, stir the sugar into the pickle juice, then pour it back in with the pickles. I discard the remaining juice. I then drain the pickle juice out again, mix the kool-aid into the pickle juice and pour it back into the pickles. It gives it a bit more kool-aid flavor since you're not discarding any of the kool-aid mix."
"had to try this have never heard of it - and OMG they are amazing - can't believe I ever have heard of them - they will be a standard at our house and can't wait to try them at a party."
"these are my FAAAAAVVVV"
"Even easier, buy the dill chip pickles presliced uniformly."
"These are way better with kosher dill pickles. We've been eating Kool aid pickles since my childhood here in Texas my daughter who is 16 has enjoyed them lifelong as well. Kosher dills aren't as salty."
"This recipe sounded interesting and so easy I had to try it. Great tasting pickle. Thanks for sharing."
"From reading Taste of Home's Recipes Across America Cookbook I learned that a favorite treat among schoolkids living in the Mississippi Delta is Kool-Aid Pickles. I thought they sounded interesting, so I gave them a try. I used the Kool-Aid flavor of tropical punch. The pickles had a sweet and sour flavor but not any trace of the tropical punch flavor. They did take on a blue color, which was fun to me. My husband, 3 of the kids and myself liked these a lot."
"Better than I thought they would be! You can taste the sweetness and kool-aid for the first few crunches, then end up with all dill. Pretty good, and my kids like them (they won't eat regular dill yet)."
