Pickle Juice Sport. Yes, that is correct, Pickle Juice Sport is the name of the product that I just had to try this past weekend. I had seen it at the gas station before, but didn't really have a reason to try it out. Yesterday, I had to stop and get gas between mowing yards and figured a quick fluid refresh would be a good idea. I picked up two powerades and a bottle of Pickle Juice Sport and I was out of there.

First of all, when I first saw it, I thought it was a little strange, but didn't think there was any way possible someone could actuall get away with just packaging pickle juice, putting a picture of Jason Witten (Dallas Cowboy's Tight End) on the bottle, adding Sport to the end of the name and getting this stuff into the marketplace. I figured it had to have some sort of "different" flavor, or just a mild hint of the pickle flavor. I was very very wrong. I get more enjoyment drinking straight from the pickle jar than this stuff. I love pickles just as much as the next guy, but my definition of trying to hydrate after sweating off 10 pounds does not include anything to do with pickles.

The makers of this have done something right as their website intro video claims to be making nearly a million dollars every year. They made about a buck fifty off of me, but that will be the last of it.

Now, for food. Last night, I was reintroduced to the beauty of PB&J. For the longest time, I had quit eating peanut butter because of my allergies. Even the smallest bite of the creamy goodness would cause my tongue to break out. Apparently, the shots are working because as Cristi was eating some last night, I took just the smallest bite and it TASTED WONDERFUL!!! My tongue didn't start itching, so I took another bite...and then another...and then a whole spoonful. After that, I realized that I had a huge craving for a PB&J sandwich. This was after eating about half a pound of Top Sirloin I had grilled out. Before I went to sleep, I had four sandwiches. I will probably eat several more this evening when I get home. That is all I have to say about that.
