"The kids I babysit for love these -- red Kool Aid gives ordinary pickles a bright red color and adds fruity sweetness to their normal tang. I'm told they originated in the Southern US. I've also heard they are bar snacks, which may explain a lot. They are pretty, but I have to admit that I don't care for them very much."

This recipe works exactly as it's supposed to. The submitter never promises taste satisfaction (although I can see some people liking these...). I think the first reviewer is missing the spirit ...

I live in the south, and this is how it's done in my neck of the woods...Take a gallon jar of whole dill pickles and strain liquid into a bowl. Take the pickles and cut them in half lengthwise ...

Well, these get four stars for their eye catching ability! They weren't bad, but they weren't anything great. Would be great at a Halloween party.

Ok.. so far .. I made this tonight. I didnt have red koolaid but I had Grape.. so my pickles will be purple, I assume! Anyway it was fun and I am looking forward to trying them and trying them...

We did not care for this recipe.

Wow, I normally don't like pickles... but this, I LOVE e'm! Good work!

My best advice is to cut the pickles in half lengthwise
