Quite a few jars of Claussen's in my local Giant's deli section. Scooped up a jar of dill sandwich slices (twice the price of Mt. Olive, but...). Very tasty straight out of the jar, and washed down with a Heineken. This weekend, I'll pair them with some burgers or hotdogs.
I haven't had a pickle in a long time, not because I don't like them but I just don't seem to crave them. Today, at our local Safeway, I checked out the Claussens (mainly prompted by this thread). We have dill halves, and dill sandwich slices, but no hearty garlic. I'll ask about that next time I go, because it sounds very good. I brought home a jar of halves, which went great with a sandwich for lunch.

We don't really buy a lot of pickles (not pickled cucumbers at least). One jar normally lasts us quite a while. Anyway, I saw the Claussen pickles in our local Winn-Dixie refrigerated section yesterday, and this thread caused me to pick up a jar. I have to say, they really are much better than the Mt. Olive or Vlasic ones we usually get. Hopefully any shortage is short-lived.
