The pickle purveyor describes the popsicles as both a refreshing treat and a hydrating "athletic supplement" that helps prevent cramps, although the latter part may be questionable based on conflicting studies on the benefits of drinking pickle juice. The Pickle-Ice pops are made with same brine the company uses in its pickles along with added electrolytes. Basically, they're like drinking straight from a pickle jar, but slightly less embarrassing. Oh, and probably a tad colder.
Eight-packs of Van Holten's pickle pops will be available at Walmart in mid-July for about $3. Another pickle juice popsicle brand, Bob's Pickle Pops, first launched in 2008 at a Seguin, Texas, skating rink, according to the report. Of course, it's probably not very hard to make similar pickle popsicles at home, if you're into that kind of thing.
