Tailgating Recipe Must-Haves

Wickles Pickles Perfect for Any College Football Tailgate

DADEVILLE, AL--(Marketwire - August 19, 2009) - With the kick-off of the college football season less than a two weeks away, fans are actively trying to make predictions about their team's upcoming wins and losses. And, while folks are serious about their team's performance on the field, they are often just as serious when it comes to tailgating.

Alabama-based Wickles Pickles finds itself in the heart of the Southeastern Conference, yet its "wickedly delicious" pickles have become cornerstone to tailgating menu items, from grits and fried chicken at the University of Georgia, to bar-b-que at the University of Tennessee, to bratwurst at the University of Michigan, to grilling ribs at the University of Texas.

Wickles boasts a complete line-up of products, perfect for any tailgating recipe, including Wickles Pickles slices, Wickles Relish, Wicked Banana Pepper Rings, Wickles Pepper Strips, Wickles Sub and Hoagie Relish, and recently launched Wicked Okra.

The unique taste behind Wickles Pickles is an 80-year-old secret family recipe. What makes the product unique from other jarred pickles products is that Wickles Pickles are packed in a sugary cider vinegar with spicy peppers and garlic, providing a balance of sweetness with a touch of heat.

"When it comes to tailgating, some folks go all out, cooking and preparing their own recipes, while others opt for pre-prepared dishes. Either way, tailgaters can bolster the taste of their dishes by substituting ingredients, such as Wickles Pickles," says Andy Anderson of Sims Foods, Inc.

"Our Wickles Pickles slices go great on top of burgers, while our relish is a mainstay for hot dogs, chicken salad, egg salad, slaws, dips and dressings. Our Pepper Strips, Sub and Hoagie Relish and Pepper Rings are great for cold cuts," says Anderson.

According to Trey Sims of Sims Foods, Inc., Wickles Pickles should not just be reserved for only food items. "We recently introduced our Wicked Okra that will spice up any Bloody Mary recipe -- perfect for that 11:30 a.m. kick-off, and we have a group of customers in Georgia who love a splash of Wickles Pickles brine with their Crown Royal Whisky," says Sims.

Short for "wickedly delicious pickles," Wickles Pickles products are kosher, gluten-free, and are not processed with high-fructose corn syrup. Look for Wicked Okra on store shelves later this summer. For more information visit
