Taste Test – Barnacle Foods Kelp Pickles

I love pickles of many different kinds but Alex is not a fan so I was on my own with this taste test. I saw a news story about Barnacle Foods and wanted to support them so I purchased a bottle each of their Dll and Sweet & Tangy Kelp pickles. Kelp are large brown algae that live in cool, relatively shallow waters close to the shore. They grow in dense groupings much like a forest on land. These underwater towers of kelp provide food and shelter for thousands of fish, invertebrates, and marine mammal species. They make up the order Laminariales. There are about 30 different genera. Despite its appearance, kelp is not a plant – it is a heterokont, a completely unrelated group of organisms.

Texture very like cucumber pickles, taste very different but with the same vinegar bite. Give them a try!!
