Non-sweet pickled green beans and Mexican-style pickled veges (carrots, jalapenos, a little onion and garlic) are my favorites.

never liked pickles.. the only one's I'll eat are clausen dill slices or other refrigerated kosher dill varieties. I'm not the type to pick stuff off of food though... if there's pickles on a burger or olives on the pizza, down the hatch they go.

Sweet pickles are gross. They rate right up there with Miracle Whip. My worst sandwich nightmare is a tuna or chicken salad that looks delicious, and I go to bite into it, only to find that it's been made with BOTH Miracle Whip and sweet pickle relish. Into the trash, there's no salvaging it.

Literally every bread and butter pickle recipe I have ever seen includes sugar or some sweetening agent along with savory pickling ingredients, and that crosses over into sweet pickle territory for me. Sweetener has no place in my pickles.

I agree. I've had coleslaw and potato salad ruined by both these ingredients, too.

I used to think this until I tasted HOMEMADE sweet pickles from a neighbor. She had the magic! From then on, I looked for sweet pickles at farmer's markets and stores that sell homemade local/regional products. I look for ones that have a lot of spices like cloves in the jar. Some people also add a tiny amount of cardamon which I find tasty. Farmers markets have the advantage that you can very often ask for a sample and even talk directly to the person who made them. Sometimes they sell more than one kind and you can pick and choose the best one for your taste. The big name brand sweet pickles sold in grocery stores.... I still have to say YUK, no thank you!
