And my friends all though my family was weird for making peanut-butter flavored yogurt pops when I was a kid!

This is a super awesome idea, but I have to wonder what the sodium content in these are... that being said I would still totally try one.  Grin

I have recently found that drinking pickle juice will cure nausea for a short time... I bet this would work quite nicely as well!

I'm gonna try it!

LittleGirl:  Here is a link on the pickle bob's page with health info on pickles, sodium, and vinegar:
http://www.bobspicklepops.com/health.htm
I'm not sure if the data for the ounce of pickle is the nutritional data for the product.  I searched, but couldn't find something that specifically said anything for that product.

BabyDragon:  I always seem to end up with jars of pickle juice in the fridge because it's like, well, there's still something in there, lol.
I started the koolickles last night!
When I was making the koolickles, not thinking I poured out the pickle juice in the sink and my husband said, where did you put the juice??!  You were supposed to freeze it, lol.  I think he liked them too!

Despite the numerous assurances on that page, it is indeed very high in salt. People with high blood pressure should be careful, and just people in general. No one healthy is going to *need* salt in such a concentration (despite the note that people need sodium, in America at least we get plenty, i.e. way more than we need, from our daily diets and do not need another source; after extreme exertion and profuse sweating electrolyte balance may be off, and then a supplement may be beneficial, but most of us are not extreme athletes), which the site seemed to imply.

I don't think, despite the "low sugar", it should be an everyday food, like regular popsicles shouldn't. But then, I think that the vast majority of "common foods" listed on that page for comparisons are also rather unhealthy! Tongue Obviously it's a biased source of information, though, since they're trying to sell a product.

The juice is higher in sodium than the pickles themselves (it's the brine and vinegar which they're soaked in), which I don't see the nutritional information for on there.

Anyway, as long as one acknowledges it as a sometimes treat, not pretending it's a healthy alternative to popsicles, it's all good. XD I certainly love pickles! Not sure about the juice though....

Thanks for the info Velvetdragon.  I just noticed that the health link was there and linked to it in case anyone was interested in reading what they had to say on the site, and if anyone had better luck finding the info than I was.  All I read was the nutritional data thing trying to find the info.  They probably aren't good for you in high consumption, but then again some things are bad for some, good for others and vice versa.  I think for the most part we are all just curious!

OMG!  I love Bob's Pickle Pops.  I go through a package a week in the summer.  I really need to make my own when the store sells out.   Smiley
