Nothing better than a garlic pickle, though half-sours are awesome too.

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!
I've had homemade...my farm-raised grandma made bread and butter pickles exclusively, to my sadness. Still didn't like 'em. She had a hopeless sweet tooth that I don't share at all.

My two favorites. Dill pickles are one-note and mayonnaise is insipid.

I'm shocked to see dill take this by a landslide. I don't understand how anyone eats a sweet pickle!

Well, I wouldn't want them on a hamburger but as a side with a chicken sandwich or put into chicken salad, YUM!

Sweet pickles are much more sophisticated than a one-note dill. I can mix vinegar, salt, and dill weed to get the same experience as eating a dill pickle. However, the sophisticated sweet pickle demands a more discerning, and mature palate.

Don't suppose the debate will ever end. Lol! But I love, love, love dill. About the only way I can stand sweet pickles is in relish on a hot dog!

But aren't you basically making a sweet pickle into a dill pickle?

I prefer savory and other flavors. I cannot stand sweet food.
