Texicun Gormay Pickuls

By | Dec 24, 2012

I had no idea pickles came in so many different varieties until I received a giant package from Texicun Gormay Pickuls packed with a whole bunch of “pickuls.”  I’m a fan of pickles, but I’ve never really strayed from the standard Dill or Vlasic pickles.  Texicun scores some brownie points for their hilariously named pickles (and even funnier commentary printed on the jars’ labels), but they score even higher when you factor in taste.

Harold’s Sissy Sweet Pickuls

I probably should have continued to read the label before I ate these.  I saw “sissy” pickles and figured I’d start out with the sweet pickles and work my way up the spice levels.  Had I continued reading, I would have seen “sweet with a ton of heat” printed on the label, but instead I sliced the pickle in half (they’re circular cut pickles, but they’re super think, about 2 inches) and took a bite.  I was greeted by a sweet taste followed by some serious heat.  Despite the surprise burst of heat, they were “pretty dern good.”  I could see these paired with any burger on a gluten-free bun in need of a kick.

I got a surprise burst of heat when I bit into these “pickuls.”

The Original Beer Pickle

At first I didn’t think a beer pickle was going to be gluten-free, but then I realized it meant it was inspired by “the flavor desires of long distance bikers and barroom brawlers.” No actual beer involved. I was prepared for the heat with this pickle; the jalapeno pepper breathing fire on the label left no taste bud surprises.  Super hot, and super salty, this pickle is not for the faint of heart.  I grabbed a glass of water and took a bite.  Even though this is one spicy pickle, it’s that good kind of hot that has some flavor to it, not the kind that just leaves your mouth burning.

They should call these “Fire Pickuls!”

Purdy Hot Pickles

These are my favorite pickles in the bunch.  Salty, crisp, with just a little hint of heat.  Since these pickles are so thick, they’d be hard to put on top of a burger without cutting them first, but I thought these would be a great candidate to make your own relish, simply by chopping them into smaller bits.  With only two jalapenos marking it “purdy hot,” these pickles were pretty tasty and much easier on the taste buds.

These were certainly “purdy” hot!

Dern Hot Pickles

These pickles had four jalapenos in the “dern hot” category, but I thought they were fairly mild.  They were more on the sweet side, with just a little kick and a salty taste.  I’m much more a fan of the Dern Hot and Purdy Hot Pickles; easier on the mouth with a whole lot of flavor.  Not too crispy, not too mushy, these pickles are certainly one of a kind.

“Dern” Hot, indeed!

Gormay Unyins

I think onions add that little something to every sandwich, burger or hot dog, so I figured I would like the Gormay Unyins.  With no added heat to the onions, these had a nice flavor.  We added them to the top of some chicken cutlets and it gave them a tasty something extra.  Plus, this jar gave me a giggle with the spelling of “unyin.”

Loved the “unyins!”

So, while I go brush my teeth after eating all those pickles and onions, feel free to check out www.ConsciousChoiceFoods.com and see what other “gormay” foods you can try out.

    I have had these pickuls. They are truly the best I have ever had and will ever buy.
    A flavor enhancer for everything from home made potato salad to chunky relish for hot-dogs.
    We used the Unyins on some grilled Braut’s and to no surprise – made them even better.
    You can use the juice from a Texicun to make a dirty pickle-tini. The juice from the Beer pickle to make a heck of a bloody-marry. Don’t pass up battering them and frying them to make the best fried-pickles you will ever eat (can be done gluten-free).
