If you like pickles, Thursday is your day to go "gherkin" crazy!

The Pickle Packers Association first started observing National Pickle Day in 1949.

And it's now celebrated every November 14th.

It's your chance maybe to try new types of pickles, or maybe experiment a little. Pickles on your pizza perhaps?

So whether you like dill, bread & butter, or deep fried, pickles are popular!

Americans eat more than five million pounds of them each year.

Cleopatra would approve: The ancient Egyptian queen apparently hailed pickles as the reason for her beauty.
