Sandwich Lovers, Look Away Because The Internet Has Debuted The Chickle


There seems to be no end to the odd food combinations we’ve been subjected to recently. I do wonder though, have there been more poor food choices being made in the last couple of years or have people always been weird and we’re only finding out now because of the internet? I tend to lean toward the latter. Ladies and gentlemen, I introduce to you the latest atrocity – a chickle aka a chicken ‘sandwich’ with pickle buns.

Remember when you thought that avocado and tomato buns were weird (cries in a corner for the good old days)? I actually just made fun of an avocado bun BLT yesterday – to be fair, they did sprinkle sesame seeds on top of it (for aesthetic?). This is literally just chicken topping shoved into a pickle cut lengthwise, so really more of a sub.

This is all thanks to minor league baseball team (of course they were American) the Fresno Grizzlies. A nod to the Grizzlies’ next opponent, the Nashville Sounds, the “chickle” is a pickle sliced lengthwise and then stuffed with Nashville-style hot chicken.

Lucky for everyone that still has a shred of what can and cannot be a sandwich bun the chickle will only be available for two days, during the two-game series between the baseball teams, first reported by Sports Illustrated.

To be fair, after learning of how well the pickle juice soda was doing, and the advent of pickle flavored popsicles it was really only a matter of time before something else outrageous centred around pickles hit the limelight. I guess I just never expected it to be so brazen. Oh well, if pickle based products are what they want, then I say, give the people what they deserve!
