Kool-Aid Pickles the New Moon Pie? 

Causing a linking stir among the blogs is a New York Times story by Southern Foodways Alliance's John T. Edge. The story concerns a food phenomenon in the Mississippi Delta: Kool-Aid pickles.

The pickles are sold in a number of Southern cities but appear to be particularly popular in the Delta. They are marinated in Kool-Aid flavors, such as strawberry, turning them into bright colors.

According to the story, the pickles can be found in convenience stores and filling stations alongside other delicacies such as pickled eggs and pigs feet.

A representative with Kraft Foods, which owns Kool-Aid, says, “We endorse our consumers’ finding innovative ways to use our products.”
