Pine Mountain Country Coffee House is selling a 'Pickle Split' ice cream sundae. Owner Dee Farrar came up with the idea after she was dared to add pickles to her ice cream as a teen.
From gallon pickle juice containers, pickle pizzas to pickle chips, and sandwiches that choose to use pickles rather than the conventional bread; unpredictable pickle items have been extremely popular in the masses as of late. And depending upon your taste preference, you're either lovin' it or you want to clobber some people.
Be that as it may, a diner in Missouri has taken the pickle rage to an unheard of level with its 'Pickle Splits' ice cream sundaes that replace bananas with pickles. Yes, you read that absolutely right, there's a pickle split ice cream sundae in the market now, and it's truly the pinnacle of human evolution! (sigh)
Pine Mountain Country Coffee House, a cafe situated in Festus, Missouri, started selling the unordinary item in April. Shop owner Deanna Farrar came up with the idea after somebody dared her to add pickles to her ice cream when she was 17 years of age.
"Like a teenager, I went ahead and took the dare and ate it," Farrar told INSIDER. "And I thought 'well that's pretty good,'" And surprisingly, Farrar continued to occasionally add pickles to her ice cream for years to come.
As indicated by Farrar, the 'Pickle Splits' have been a hit among Pine Mountain Country Coffee House customers, with everybody from regulars to local councilmen making a trip to taste the viral ice cream trend for themselves. "Everyone that has tried it has eaten every last bite," Farrar said.
"No one has taken the pickles out and left them. They have eaten the entire thing[...] I keep gallons of Vlasics in the fridge because that's how many people order them," she added. Pine Mountain Country Coffee House's 'Pickle Splits' sell for $7.50.
Despite the fact that Farrar reveals to INSIDER that the customary Neopolitan is the most famous flavor to combine with pickle spears, you can likewise try a sundae with any of the eatery's additional ice cream flavors.
In case you're hesitant to attempt the sweet-and-sour matching, customary banana splits are likewise available on the Pine Mountain Country Coffee House menu, however, Farrar says she intends to create more unusual flavor pairings at the mercantile and café soon.
"I've been thinking of a few other options," Farrar told INSIDER. "A few people asked me about doing maple bacon or chocolate-covered bacon. I think I'm going to have to make a separate menu of crazy concoctions and see what all our customers can help us come up with."
