Spreading The Love

We were spreading the in a pickle love last weekend at one of our newest locations!  In a pickle was in Dallas at Bolsa Mercado sharing our jams.  It was a great tasting and we were glad to see those that stopped by!

Our jams and pickles are marching on ... you can find us at Tommy Tamales in Grapevine,  Tis The Season Gift Shop in Hemphill, and our newest out-of-state pickle peeps are;  Whispering Meadows Vineyard & Winery in McAlester, Oklahoma and Tagawa Gardens in Centennial, Colorado.  And while we are on the subject of great places to get our pickles and jams... we want to give a shout out to Empire Baking Company in Dallas!

If you haven't tried some of our recent seasonal jams like Orangey Fig, Lemony Pear Vanilla Bean, Sweet and Spicy Tomato, and Apple Bourbon Cinnamon you can pick up a jar at Bolsa Mercado or ask for them at other locations that carry in a pickle products and of course if in doubt just call James at 817.584.5835 and order.

Now you may be wondering why you don't see any of our new products on our website but never fear pickle peeps we are in a pickle at the moment because our incredible seasonal products are multiplying about as fast as Karen can say Splendiferous!  Our website is up and running... but will be changing soon to reflect our new products, our in a find locations, our new look, and our famously fab in a pickle foodie trailer!

Have a great week... and remember life's greatest moments start in a pickle!
