The first bite in to these, you get a nice crunch and the taste of a well concocted garlic and dill pickle, and then it comes, that sudden surprise of habanero bite, but not nearly as heavy hitting as the Texicun Gormay’s seemed to be. All joking aside about grammar and spelling on the Texicun labels, this just might be the more refined spicy cousin in the family. The flavor is quite similar to the others, but the punch of heat is more subtle and the flavors tend to blend better.
I’ve been lucky enough to meet the feller awhile back when he was in NOLA for The Gourmet Hot Sauce Show. At the time he was just testing out his latest recipe for The Beer Pickle that would join his first 3 types: Frances Cowley Original Dill, 2X Hot, 4X Hot. I’m a fan of all three, especially the beautiful label on The Beer Pickle jar that I think would look fantastic as a tattoo on my future husband or, foregoing marriage, a nice oil painting for my parlor. Anyway, while these pickles are all great, I was truly wowed by their latest addition, a so called “sissy” sweet pickle.
Hella good and spicy thank-you. I will be ordering more in the future. I give this 10 stars with no question. It's also a plus that there's no preservatives or chemicals in the product. I will definitely try the other flavors. Absolutely recommended!
These pickles are ADDICTIVE. From the first time I sampled one, I have been obsessed. These pickles pack the perfect amount of heat and tartness. If you don't like things real spicy, try the "Purdy Hot" pickles. If you like your tongue to burn with the fire of a thousand suns, try Harold's famous Beer Pickles. These Dern Hots sit right in the middle at "just right" for me.
Hold on to seats! These pickles are spicy! These babies are also some of the best pickles I’ve ever tasted. They come in a variety of flavors- sweet, sour, “dern hot”- and every one was delicious. I also love the company’s fun packaging; a home style, country-loving jar with funny spelling on the label.
