Quickle Queen

Despite the explanation below, I'm not at all sure how a "quickle" differed from a pickle. I suspect that the pickle industry quickly dropped the 'quickle' name and just referred to pasteurized pickles as pickles. Some googling reveals that the majority of the pickles you can find in supermarkets are, in fact, pasteurized. So I guess that, technically, they would be quickles.

"Pickle packers picked pert Pat Varner." Try saying that three times quickly!

Not to be confused with the Quickie Queen…

How many packs of pickles must a pickle packer pack to be privy for participation in the Pickle Packers Association?
