LOVE THESE PICKLES. For years I have done without pickels due to diet restrictions so it's great to have a tasty spear to go along side my sandwich again! Just be aware of the sodium content per serving and plan your meal accordingly. I eat less than a gram of sodium a day and these spears work well with my other menu options. Even my husband (who doesn't watch his sodium intake) Loves these pickles!
I like them

I really do like these pickles-i gave them a four star because they really do not taste like any other pickle i have every eaten and i do not want people to think that these are going to taste like a deli pickle-but I really do like them-they go great with a tuna sandwich and that is what i was missing
I like the fact that they have "some" sodium in them as it really does add to the flavor but i understand the other review about not being uniform in size and therefore creating a sodium content issue but for me-i will keep ordering as long HHM keeps stocking them
Good tasting but watch out for serving size!

I ordered these pickles directly from Rick's Picks before receiving the announcement that Healthy Heart is now offering them. I just got my jar of "Classic Sours" yesterday. We've been looking for a truly low sodium dill pickle ever since B & G and Healthy Heart discontinued theirs.
First thing I did was check the nutritional label. The info shows 75 mg sodium for a 1 oz serving size. It also shows about 15 servings per jar. The pickles looked like spears, so I assumed there were 15 spears in the jar and each spear accounted for 75 mg sodium. Not bad for low sodium pickles.
However, when I opened the jar, I discovered that the pickle pieces were not uniformly cut. Several were huge and a few were super skinny. I weighed one of the large pieces; it was 3.5 ounces. I knew I had to slice it into thirds in order to come close to the supposed serving size. So I ended up cutting most of the pickle pieces -- depending on the size, some into thirds and some into halves.
The pickles taste fine, but, at this point, I'm not sure if it's worth ordering these particular pickles again. I might try "The People's Pickle" slices. The label has the same setup: 70 mg sodium for a 1 oz serving with approximately 12 servings. There is no indication how many slices equal one ounce. So I know I'd have to weigh the pickle slices before serving them to my CHF husband. I'm a bit leery of getting strange sizes of pickle slices again -- some super thick and others quite thin. It would be OK for use as a side condiment but not acceptable for sandwiches.
