I personally like bread and butter pickles, but I know my sister hates them. She like dill pickles and that is it. My son likes Sweet Pickles and not dill, so I bought a jar of Bread and Butter pickles last night to see if he would like those. Do you like bread and butter pickles or are you strictly a a dill pickle person?

Bread and Butter pickles are kind of sweet, but not as sweet as Gherkins. Bread and butter pickles, also known as sweet and sour pickles, are on the sweeter end of the pickle spectrum, but not quite to the level of traditional sweet pickles. Bread and butter pickles are often sold in stores as crinkled-cut slices, ideal for topping hamburgers and other savory sandwiches. Bread and butter pickles may also be found in salad cube form for use in cold meat or pasta salads, or even as a finely chopped relish. Some pickle enthusiasts prefer the sweet, tart flavor of bread and butter pickles over the sharp bite of dill pickles. http://www.wisegeek.com/what-are-bread-and-butter-pickles.htm

Oh thanks for clearing that up. Now I wonder if what we call pickles in UK is the same thing. They are all mixed up vegetables in a spicy sauce and are eaten with cold meats usually. Is that what you do with those or do you eat them with bread and butter?

Pickles here are strictly cucumbers. Dill pickles are in a vinegar and water mixture and sweet pickles have sugar in the liquid.

Dill pickles are my favorite, but I will eat bread and butter pickles as well. My parents have always had a garden year after year and each time my mom will make bread and butter pickles out of cucumbers. Store bought pickles are good, but her home-made bread and butter pickles are delicious!

I am partial to half sours myself. The bread and butter pickles are too sweet for my taste. I also like the hearty garlic ones from Vlassic. Those ar terrific on a ham sandwich.

I hate bread and butter! I think people either love them or hate them. I love dill pickles though. I eat them plain all the time. I also put them on anything they're good on. I can't eat a sandwich without some crispy dill pickles on them.
