I saw what first glance was a new-to-me brand of pickles on the shelf in Price Chopper this morning. Then, I noticed they were Vlassic.
There are a few differences. There is more salt in a serving of the Farmer's market style along with red pepper, carrots and garlic. The ingredient change that really struck me was the coloring agent. The Beta Carotene in the Farmer's Market style left the pickles almost gray. The Yellow#5 in the traditional gives the pickle a strange, but more vibrant color.
I didn't buy either bottle, or any pickles at all today, but the Farmer's Market package seems a little dishonest. Oh, I only got a few funny looks while taking these pictures. But I think I might be starting to enjoy the awkwardness. That's probably not good.
