Huge Fan
Poncho Blancas & Samantha Crane - Big Buck's Fans!
I was having a late night stroll at the grocery store, which led to an amazing find.  Two items to pick up soon became three when I saw a old school jar Cole’s chili cukes on the shelf.  Sometimes the simplest things are the biggest deal.   Got home and had to stop myself from eating the whole jar!  The low sodium really made the pickle stand up to the perfect amount of chili and garlic.  Just like grandpa used to make.  Thanks guys.

In my life-long quest for the perfect pickle I've finally met the consummate cuke. I've lived in seven major cities in three different countries and used to work as a chef. The good people at Buck's Vineyard simply make THE BEST pickles I've ever bought. Fresh, quality, not-too-salty, no chemical taste, just great, well-made food. Thanks to Jeff and the rest of the gang! Your pickles are the greatest!
Perfect Pickle

This morning my husband, Loren, and I became part of the legion of fans of your out-of-this-world pickles, having spotted and purchased a jar of the chili cukes at a Mollie Stone's yesterday.  Incredibly delicious for all the right reasons!  We love that it's low sodium, and has no vinegar, and the seasonings are superb.
Definitely a fan!
