International Pickle Festival- Rosendale

Standard

Location: Rosendale, NY

Fricklers and Staches

So here it goes; our most overdue post yet!  Way back in November the Frickle Chicks went to the best event in the world, yes I said it, the WORLD; The 14th Annual International PICKLE FESTIVAL!  Everywhere you turn there are just more and more pickles.  Spicy pickles, sweet pickles, sour pickles, baby pickles, monster pickles, pickle flavored snow-cone (p.s. never again), human pickles, and most importantly FRIED PICKLES!  The festival has  all sorts of contests, yummy eats, live music and dancing,  and vendors selling all types of wonderful things.  Overall, Pickle Festival was a great success!  Spacey Tracy was the woman to meet our every frickle need. And oh boy did she!

There were a few issues when we got to the front of the line, but considering it was a festival filled with hundreds of people, we understood having to wait a few extra minutes.

Spacey Tracy was friendly and super nice.  Not to mention she had some killer pickle earings!

Affordable and fair for the size of the huge-ass pickle chips.  They were also veryyyyyy filling; we were able to share one serving among 2 or 3 people.

Overall:

Whole Pickle = 4

Bex really loved them. I mean really REALLY loved these fried pickles! They are certainly on her list of top 3 best frickles.  Lyss liked the fricks and appreciated the frickle talent which was exhibited, but was not a huge fan of the flavor of the actual pickle itself.

Pickle Festival 2012. Never forget.
