Today is National Pickle Day! I’m not a fan of pickles at all, but my husband LOVES them. His favorite quote from the TV show “Everybody Loves Raymond” is when Raymond eats a pickle and says it’s “a food and a drink!” My husband isn’t alone in his love of pickles. More than 67% of American households eat pickles, and Americans eat more than 9 pounds of pickles per person every year. That’s a lot of pickles! For the pickle fans in your life, here are some fun pickle gifts that they’ll love.
