A tasty drink?


Our girls love pickles.  Not sure what it is about them, but they are the bees knees to them.

Like, no you can’t have a pickle until you eat all of your broccoli…and the broccoli is gone.  This might even work for brussel sprouts.

As I was clearing the table the other night, I heard a big sister tell me to look at her little sister.

Imagine my surprise (and disgust) when I look over and see this?

Tasty Toddler Drink?

Pickle juice.  As a drink. DISGUSTING!

But, now that I’m thinking about it.  My favorite shaved ice place in Houston has dill pickle as a flavor.  I think I’ll stick to my blue bubble gum.

I’m linking up here.  Go and visit their Wordful and Wordless Wednesdays.

    My mom craved pickle juice when pregnant with my brother, she had gestational diabetes at the time & didn’t know it & being thirsty is a symptom. I guess she was thirsty for it!

    My sister in law has been a pickle “freak” her whole life and has been known to down a glass of pickle juice on occasion.

  9. My daughter LOVES pickles too. And probably would drink the juice, too, since all she does is lick the flavor off of them anyway.

    My drinks olive juice. Like the juice out of the can of green olives. I always thought that was a little disgusting.

    1. Not being an olive person, I don’t know…does that even have any flavor, or is it like olive water?

  10. Oh that disgusting, cute but disgusting.

    1. I’m very thankful she’s cute for a multitude of reasons!

    1. Really, you hate them? I love pickles, too, but not the juice! And, they have to be good ones, too!

  11. I have caught TWO of my daughters drinking pickle juice from the jar! Blechhh!

    1. Maybe it’s because it looks like a cup to them? I can’t figure it out.

    when she starts eating that salty lemon stuff you know she’s yours.

  15. I did that ALL the time when I was a kid. And look how great I turned out. On second thought…

  16. this totally cracks me up! when we were kids my parents would *threaten* pickle juice if we didn’t finish drinking our milk!! sounds like your girls would love that deal!

    1. Really, you don’t like them? I like pickles, but eww..not the juice!

  19. Heh! She’s so cute. I had a co-worker who drank pickle juice. She apologized to us in advance.

    1. Yeah, I think an advance apology would be necessary! Although, did she actually bring the juice to work to drink it?

  20. LOL From what I hear, my mom used to do the same thing as a child. 🙂

    1. My grandmother wrote me a note after reading this and told me that my mom used to do the same thing!

    1. If somebody is willing to buy it..I’d totally sell it:)

  23. after reading the comments I will shamefully admit to having done that (and not as a small child). I LOVE the smell of pickles, love to eat them but since I am the only one in the family who even remotely likes them, I don’t buy them often. That is such an adorable picture!

  24. Time to keep the pickle jars up! lol Too funny! Q loves pickles too….course so do I?! lol 🙂

    1. Eh….she picked this one off the table after we had finished the pickles, so I guess it was fair game!

      But, she will pull the jar out of the fridge and ask for pickles for a snack!
