Do You Relish the Thought of Pickle Cupcakes?

Do You Relish the Thought of Pickle Cupcakes?

We’re really not sure how to feel about this recipe. Cupcakes are a wonderful thing, and on the other side of the flavor spectrum, pickles are a delicious treat. There’s no reason people shouldn’t enjoy them but should they be enjoyed within the same bite? A recent YouTube video released by Delish would like to argue that they can be.

If you’re anything like us, you’ve watched that video a couple times and are still on the fence about what these things would taste like. A recent post on Bustle takes the side that briny and sweet treats should never come together but we’re still of two minds about it.

For:

If you’ve never experienced the flavor euphoria of combining salty and sweet then you’re missing out on joy in your life. Pickle cupcakes are a somewhat off-putting idea, but is it really so different than the amazing combo of chocolate and potato chips? Try pairing some M&M’s with a plain Lay’s potato chip sometime or dipping a Wendy’s french fry into a Frosty and enjoy your life as the newest resident of Flavortown, population: you and Guy Fieri (probably). Also, the addition of whiskey to the cupcake’s frosting has us thinking these can’t be that bad. Head into a trendy bar these days and you’re likely to see a Pickleback on the menu; it’s not like these flavors are exactly strangers.

Against:

The combination seems risky to us for possibly ruining two great things. We fear the positives of each side would cancel out, resulting in a sum that’s somehow less than. We’d feel safer snacking on pickles while making cupcakes and then enjoying a well-deserved switch to the sweet side of things when they cupcakes are out of the oven. Plus, who enjoys warm, cooked pickles?

But what do you think? Have you tried this sort of recipe before? Let us know what they’re like in the comments below!
