Thank you Delish.com😘

Greetings Fellow Shpickle Lovers! 

Happy Valentines♥️

A few weeks ago we were approached by Delish.com asking if they could do a video of me and my son making Brussels Sprouts Pickles! 

But of course! We were honored. 

Off to the kitchen Abe and I went with our Shpickling stuff.  In came Lindsey Funston and Chelsea Lupkin, shlepping 🎥 cameras, lights and big smiles.

My son and I began the process and boy did we have fun! Lindsey is a champ and a natural in the kitchen and Chelsea knows how to handle a camera I tell you. 

When we were done they swiped the finished Sprouts Shpickles and left! 

Well, aren’t you going to taste them? Sure they said, but not with you.  So, we waited for them to return, but they were all secretive and stuff.  

And off they went. 

So today the wait was over.  The video was released on Delish Facebook (and brooklynwhatevers FB too) and OMG she LOVED them. Flavor bombs she said. New fav she said. So we say Thank you ladies for the shout out and the kind words.  

You rock!

NON GMO Vinegar! Oh Yeah!

Posted on October 05, 2016 by Rachel Shamah | 1 comment

Hello there Shpickle people.

We have news. AS of next week all Brooklyn Whatever Shpickles will be produced with white distilled NON GMO  vinegar.  How awesome is that? After doing extensive research we have decided that making this change will make our pickled vegetables one of the healthiest out there. 

We non only use the NON GMO Vinegar, we do not use any sugar, no preservatives, and we do not add any additives. 

This is a damn good product!

In case you don't know what's a Shpickle? It is a pickled vegetable that is NOT a cucumber, there are enough companies out there pickling cucumbers.

Rather we choose to pickle sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, kale, yes kale, carrots, jalapeno, string beans, and okra.  Amazing...

So, if you care about what goes in your body and LOVE pickled stuff try a Shpickle. Drop me a line (Rachel@Brooklynwhatever.com) let me know how you like them, and if you post your jar on insta-gram, I'll send you a free tote bag! we are @brooklynwhatever

Till next time,

Noticing the obsession

Posted on May 26, 2016 by Rachel Shamah | 1 comment

Hey there everyone! 

I've noticed that our Shpickles are not only loved by so many, people seemed to be obsessed. In a good way. 

Pickles seem to be in a separate category food wise.  When I go to trade shows, street fairs, markets and fleas I call out "Shpickles!" And people's heads turn. They are drawn to the pickle! 

My experience has been more woman than men LOVE the Shpickle. Also it's not just 'I like Pickles!' It's more like 'Geez I really am bonkers for Pickles.' 

In the rare case when someone doesn't like pickles they actually apologize and call themselves outcasts and weird. But I forgive them and respect their choices. 

So it goes like this, there are shpickle people and non shpickle people.  What is your choice to be? ?
