- Grillo?s pickles boast something of a cult following in Boston. They?re so popular, in fact, that the shop is preparing a fresh batch just for Gilt City members. The coveted jars will be available on February 13.
- These super-crunchy, flavorful and garden-fresh cukes are pickled in brine made from a 100-year-old family recipe from Italy, infused with garlic, grape leaves, and fresh dill.
- All-natural pickles are the perfect snack to satisfy any crunch and munch cravings. They?re fat free, have only five calories per spear, and are great for rehydration and antioxidants.
Gilt City members are invited to sample the company?s snappy creations with two jars of pickles to be picked up at the company?s pop-up shop in Cambridge (which is only in operation through March).
Honcho Travis Grillo launched the business in 2008 with his family?s century-old recipe, crunchy cukes bathed in a brine infused with California garlic, farm-fresh dill and grape leaves from a decades-old Grillo family vine. Turning up the heat, the unique hot dill spears also boast the spicy pop of hot peppers.
Although the sought-after food cart still finds its way onto Boston streets in the summertime, the crunchy creations have also become popular Stop & Shop and Whole Foods fodder, selling out quicker than they can restock the distinct plastic containers (which depict a lounging pickle in sunglasses and flip-flops).
It?s crunch time.
