It’s the little things in life that make me the happiest!
My family will understand the heartache a few years ago when Haywards decided to stop making their plain pickled gherkins.
Tradition at Xmas was to stock up on them as they wouldn’t last long with family get togethers.
I seriously missed them.
Nothing else could compare.
Every jar I picked up would contain sodding DILL!! or spices.
Nope, nope and nope.
The closest I ever came to finding them again was small jars of itty bitty cocktail gherkins. Nice, but gone in one crunch.
I had almos given up hope.
BUT THEN SOMETHING MAGICAL HAPPENED.
This jar caught my eye when I was shopping in Aldi the other day.
I read the label closely and there was no sign of the dreaded Dill or spices.
I took a chance and bought it.
They are lovely.
I have my big beautiful Gherkins back and the best thing about them?
They are only 125 calories for the ENTIRE jar!!
So I can munch on them quite happily on my diet.
