- A potentially tasty burger, ruined by the pickle

Pickles on burgers are an abomination

It is time burger outlets start making the pickle a relish of the past!

Ok burger purists. I think you've got it wrong. Pickles ruin the taste of the burger, always have, always will.

The rancid acidic smell of them, the after taste, it kills the most important taste of all in a burger, the protein. Chicken, fish, beef or even those fake meat burgers (although my passion for them is infinitely less than real meat) they should all stop having pickles put on them and ruining them.

From my earliest memory of burgers I remember hating the taste of pickles. Fast forward to my first job at McDonalds and the smell of pickles on my hands for days after my shift was the stuff of nightmares. No amount of washing would get rid of it.

So it is time burger outlets start making the pickle a relish of the past. Put them on the charged additions menu and let us enjoy our burgers in peace!

  • Spicy bread and butter pickles are the way to go!

    • I hate sweet pickles, but spicy might be interesting.

    • Sweet and spicy jalapenos are pretty good too. I don't like actual sweet pickles but I do like bread & butter not as sweet but everything with spice makes it better. 😁

    • No refunds, just like what happens when I get a burger with horrible pickles on it that I didn't ask for.

    • It took you 5 minutes to read that?

  • No less of an authority than Jimmy Buffett himself cites the existence of the dill pickle within the framework of the 'Cheeseburger in Paradise'. Please don't die on this hill, son.

    • I will say that it will take time, a whole lot of time, to unsee what you've seen while employed at McDonald's. So I empathize.

  • If thats the argument, then you would have meat and bread if that.

    • If you don't agree then you don't agree, but don't belittle other ingredients to support the horrible pickles as those ingredients are not on trial here! ;)

    • Actually you can belittle beetroot on burgers. That stuff is up there with pickles.

  • No. The pickle is an essential element... The only essential addition to a burger because it cuts through the richness of fatty meat and cheese (if you're eating a burger properly) A properly cooked, seasoned and high quality beef burger only needs cheese, pickles and perhaps bacon. Small amounts of ketchup or mayonnaise are fine....however even a drop too much mayo is vile. And keep raw onions away.
