Long ago when parents decorated the Christmas tree they hung the pickle ornament last, hiding it in the green boughs. When the children were allowed to view the tree, they would begin searching for the pickle ornament because they knew they would receive an extra gift for being the most observant.
These green and white striped hard candies look like something Grandma might keep in a crystal dish. But, if she tasted one of these, she’d be in for a briny surprise. This candy tastes like sweet pickles!
