Elsie's, a restaurant in Haddon Township, New Jersey is giving a whole new meaning to the term "extra pickles."


They serve their sandwiches on giant hollowed-out pickles, made with their own special recipe.

The result is the highest pickle-to-sandwich ratio possible.




Co-owner Katherine Cohen told thrillist:

"We are a sandwich shop but, in lieu of bread, we use our Elsie's signature pickle."
"We have a family pickle recipe that we resurrected and we started making sandwiches on our signature pickles and people lost their minds so we just rolled with it."

If a giant pickle isn't your thing, Elsie's also offers pickle or cucumber roll-up versions of their specialty sandwiches. You can go even farther and customize your sandwich ingredients too.



Options include the standard meats, cheeses and condiments, along with special items like Sriracha or wasabi mayonnaise.

Twitter had mixed feelings about the idea of a pickle sandwich.

Some were totally there for it.




Others were much less excited by the idea.






Whatever your feelings on pickle sandwiches, there's no denying that Elsie's has definitely found their niche with this unique product.

What is it about someone that captivates you instantly?

Could it be the twinkle in their eye as they talk about their passions? Or perhaps its their overwhelming sense of humor that draws in everyone in the room?

Whatever it might be, everyone has that one trait, that one quality, that can make them instantly interesting to someone listening nearby.

Are you like me and the 1990s were only 10 years ago?

Yes, I can do the math, but 1990 being 32 years ago still seems unreal.

Why is that?

Maybe it's the fact it marked the end of the 20th century and beginning of the 21st.

Either way, it just doesn't seem that long ago and the nostalgia for the trappings of the 1990s is strong.

You're probably going to be beat over the head with this as you read this charming article but bedbugs are a nightmare and they are always lurking (in the back of my mind) when I think about purchasing some items secondhand.

Some years ago, a relative brought in a stuffed animal and some other items off the street. Within days we had a bedbug issue.

It was thankfully resolved very quickly–good thing it was caught so early–but let's just say I dealt with phantom itch for a while.

Nooo thank you.
