There's always that movie line; the one about the pregnant woman craving pickles. You know what I'm talking about. I never craved pickles while pregnant, but some women do and there's a new company that can help. picklesPickleSickle Frozen Pickle Juice Treats are a new taste sensation that may just satisfy your craving for the pregnancy pickle. PickleSickles are a freshly squeezed frozen pickle juice treat. Yikes. It sounds really strange, but then, I'm just an occasional pickle muncher. I guess people really like them. They're noted as being refreshing. The big perk are the health benefits - which seems odd to me because pickles are a fairly salty food. However, according to the company health benefits of the pickle include:
"A recent study revealed that pickles blunted the blood-sugar spike by as much as 30% after a high-carb meal. Studies revealed that vinegar, much like that used in the pickling process, provided a balancing benefit to combat harmful insulin spikes. The spices used in the pickling process are also healthy. Pickling ingredients like garlic and dill help to control the growth of unhealthy bacteria in the body. And many other spices involved in the pickling have been known to have wide-ranging health properties as well."
PickleSickles have no fat and almost no sugar - which is a benefit for pregnant mamas. Honestly, I'm going to have to let you decide this one on your own. I wouldn't eat frozen pickle juice - would you?
