    In these troubled times it is important to know who is the "Us" and who is the "Them". Afterall, before the big one drops when space aliens come to rescue people to their planet of paradise, there won't be room for everyone. So here is the all-important question.

    When I was little, I loved sweet pickles so much my dad called me "Willie off the pickle boat" (apparently, the "pickle boat" is the last boat in the fleet to get into port or something like that).

    Dill pickles are just a Hoax, there's no such thing as a Dill pickle. This whole Dill pickle thing has been blown out of proportion.

    I'm voting for dill.
    I don't like carrots and have never had a sweet pickle.

    i voted "dill" because i think it's so easy to like a great dill/spiced pickle. but i love sweet pickles, too, a lot! for me: the choice between them would have to be based on any other foods involved in a meal. just for a snack = either one works for me. and i'm with https://www.talkbass.com/members/stereoplayer.175358/ on that hot/sweet thing! ;)

    You do realize that pickled carrots are a thing?
  8. I really don’t like either pickle, but voted for Dill as the lesser of two evils, just so the sweet pickle doesn’t stay in power and ruin my lunch.
  9. Dill pickles are the drummers of the pickle world. Sweet pickles require a subtler and more appreciative palette. :D

    I’ve enjoyed Dill pickles for several decades. Vlasic Oval Dill Chips, to be exact.

    I continue to be troubled at the ongoing allegations that they are the result of an unholy alliance between the Free Masons and the Trilateral Commission.

    For the record, I believe none of the allegations, as they are just that: unfounded allegations.

    There's something special about hot and sweet together.

    Dill vs. sweet isn't as important as the individual specs. Anyway, the most important thing is don't mix types, and vertically stack your jars.
