After the Vavel episode, I was beginning to suspect that anything called Cucumbers in Brine would be far better pickles for my palate than mere Pickles, so I searched for cucumbers in brine on amazon.com, and came up with this product of Israel. Score again! These add a garlic tang absent from Vavel.
There are a few more amazon-sponsored brands to try, but I didn't want to overkill. Yet.
These are my fourth sixth favorite pickle now. And no, despite their depiction on the label, none of them have pimples.
