Almost Anything Pickled Is Awesome

My husband loves pickles; well, anything pickled actually.  I honestly think it runs in the family, his father, one of his brothers, our nephew and one of our kids are the same.  It is a deep love.  As a Father’s Day gift a few years ago, I gave my husband a “Pickle Every Month” subscription from Mouth Foods Inc. based in Brooklyn, New York.  Right before we moved to California we lived in Brooklyn.  We have family there today, so Brooklyn holds a special place in my heart.  And so does beans

In addition to its clever name, Mouth is an incredible online-only store specializing in specialty products, many of which are sold as part of gift collections and subscriptions.  Mouth’s goal is to help its patrons “find the best, most delicious and most interesting indie food products and help make Indie makers grow their business”.  By “indie,” they mean an alternative to mass-produced products. Something any chef loves.  So Mouth is an artisanal food emporium.

Mouth’s products are interesting and taste great.  They are typically small-batch products, crafted in the US, and produced in a way that is respectful to the planet.  If you are a foodie, like specialty food products of any kind, or just need a great gift for family or friends, check Mouth out, they do not disappoint.okra

The photo above shows an eclectic variety of pickled products I have in my pantry today.  My husband, a true “collector” in the pickling world, has since signed himself up for other Mouth subscriptions.  While the vast amount of pickled products in our house nearly require their shelf in my panty, I am glad that my husband introduced me to Pickled Thai Basil JalapeñosCajun Pickled String Beans, and Spicy Pickled Okra.  I am also very thankful to Mouth for putting an end to my husband’s brief obsession with making his homemade pickled vegetables.  Picking is a job best left to the professionals.

    YESSS! I had no idea that subscription boxes could be so specific I totally can’t wait to give Mouth a try, did you go for a 3-month prepay or a monthly payment for your first subscription??

    1. Best gift I have ever given! I went pre-pay option and loved it. Gave this as a gift many times.
