Whether you like them sweet or sour, mild or spicy, or even flavored with horseradish to whiskey there’s a pickle to suit every taste. These briny delights are used to compliment burgers, but can be enjoyed alone as well. And with more 4.67 million Americans consuming at least at least 6 jars of pickles each year this is a market with sufficient demand.

So why not check out this dill-lightful list (had to do it) of pickle company names we could stuff into a virtual name jar just for you.
