Pickle Packers InternationalWASHINGTON, D.C. – Can you say Pickle Packers? We know of a website that LOVES pickles. It’s the website of Pickle Packers International, and it has all the pickle brands across the world.They really are packin’ some pickles.

At right, a children’s coloring project from the site; it has lots of kids stuff they can print out to color or do it in an online application.

We had a reader searching for a Madelyn or Madeline-brand pickles. They were crunchy and crisp and sweet rather than most of today’s recipes. Luckily, she could look at the list online at I Love Pickles and try her luck.

Everyone has their own preferences, but luckily there are dozens of brands around the world, all selling different versions of these vinegared cucumbers.

The list at I Love Pickles is more complete than below, and regularly updated. They keep a full list of pickle brands by name, including international brands and regional brands.

    Where can you buy Ma Brown pickles? I live in Carrollton, Texas (Dallas). I used to get them all the time at Wal-Mart. Or, a pickle like these.

  • 2 Van // Jul 4, 2009 at 11:09 pm

    Have you received any responses? It seems that somewhere along the way Dean Foods Company must have purchased the brand, probably as a part of a larger deal, and discontinued Ma Brown Pickles. It truly breaks my heart: they were the best pickles ever made! Winn-Dixie Stores’ own brand of kosher dill pickle is the closest I’ve found, but I don’t believe you have W.D. Stores in Texas. I would appreciate you sharing anything you hear…

  • 3 William // Jul 31, 2009 at 9:48 pm

    What have they done to Mrs. Neushiuns Pickles. For years and years these were the best tasting pickles and now for the last 3 or 4 months they have changed for the worst.

  • 4 kim sipper // Aug 5, 2009 at 7:24 pm

    There used to be a Farman’s Pickles from washington state. The website takes you to dean foods, however they do not have the brand. I understand the factory is now overseas but where are the distrbutors? I appreciate any help you can give me. thanks Kim Sipper

  • 5 Nikki Nelson // Sep 19, 2009 at 9:05 pm

    My husband and I are trying to start a pickle canning business. We also do Jalapenos, I assure you that these are very delicious sweet pickles. We have our own unique recipe for the pickles, Jalapenos, and also Tomatoe relish. We just don’t know how to distribute them to the public. Does anyone have any suggestions?

  • 6 Sue // Oct 23, 2009 at 6:39 pm

    What happened to Wiejske Wyroby petite dill pickles? They used to be carried by Sam’s Club. Now I can’t find them anywhere. They are American made. Help!!!!! They are also wonderful.

  • 7 Charles // Dec 20, 2009 at 3:53 pm

    WIEJSKE WYROBY petite dills used to be carried by Costco but have disappeared there too. I believe they were manufactured in Texas.
    “I Live Pickles” and other web sites no help in finding them. Any ideas??

  • 8 Diana // Feb 10, 2010 at 5:26 pm

    My husband just called me about a radio station that was talking about Wiejske Wyroby pickles. We would not eat another brand, until we were unable to find them. I bought them at Tom Thumb in Dallas, TX. I would love to find them again.

  • 9 linda // Feb 21, 2010 at 5:12 pm

    would love to find WIEJSKE WYROBY PETITE DILL PICKLES I live in florida

  • 10 marcy // Jun 2, 2010 at 10:22 pm

    would love to find Max’s kosher dill pickles; they were the best. Any ideas would be welcome

  • 11 Amy // Jun 21, 2010 at 1:51 pm

    Van,

    I bought a jar of Winn Dixie koshers, and I’m still mourning Ma Browns. To me, Winn Dixie’s taste nothing at all like them.

    The search continues …

  • 12 Russ // Jul 10, 2010 at 2:32 pm

    Found Wiejske Wyroby pickles! BJ’s Wholesale Club in Norfolk, VA. I agree they’re awesome… tried them for the first time today!

  • 13 David Walsh // Jul 23, 2010 at 7:47 am

    Wiejske Wyroby pickles can be found at Hammann’s catering, deli and butcher shop here in Fairfield, OH. Having some of the petit dills right now.

  • 14 Charlie Ventura // Aug 3, 2010 at 12:47 pm

    I used to buy Warsaw Falcon pickles…can’t find them anywhere in town at any store. Did they stop production on this great product? Please tell me it isn’t so!!

  • 15 Larry // Aug 22, 2010 at 12:20 pm

    Bernice and Van,

    I grew up in New Orleans. The only pickles we had were Ma Brown. I haven’t been the same since they disappeared.

    However, I found a pickle which is nearly identical to Ma Brown. The brand is Cajun Chef. They are made in St Martinville , Louisiana. The Rouse’s Grocery stores carry them. The Cajun Chef pickle I”m referring to is the Cajun Chef “Kosher Dill” pickle. Rouse’s doesn’t stock this certain type but they can try to order if for you. You can also contact Cajun Chef at their web site.

    Hi – to the lady looking for Madeline pickles, I have drinking glasses from Madolene Pickles. After a bit of research I found a patent for Madolene Pickles in 1922 – the company was registered in Newport News, VA. The glasses are wonderful, with pickles worked into children’s nursery rhymes and illustrated with pickle characters.

  • 17 Dan & Loretta // Jan 19, 2011 at 7:54 pm

    Used to love Farman’s pickles but they are not as good as they used to be, the last jar that we bought was full of grit and sand, I understand that Bay Valley Foods bought them and outsourced them, thats to bad for our farmers and the people who love pickles.

  • 18 Robert Kowalski // Feb 26, 2011 at 7:11 pm

    Wiejskie Wyroby Petite Pickles can be had at BJ’s Warehouse in Upstate NY. Great stuff.

  • 19 John Gravette // Apr 17, 2011 at 8:13 pm

    I am searching for Ma brown’s Dill Pickles. If they have been baught out who sells similar now?
    Growing up in New Orleans Ma Brown Pickles were just the best. Havent seen any for so long and would love to come across they once again.

  • 20 Spud // May 9, 2011 at 6:15 pm

    I need some help from all you pickle lovers out there. Many years ago I remember a SWEET pickeled onion – NOT a cocktail onion – and were about the size of an olive.
    I seem to remember ‘Daily’s’ (sp)? on the label but I’m not sure. My mom could’nt keep enough of them on hand.
    I need some help – I’m having withdrawl symptoms !!!

  • 21 Rene' // Jul 14, 2012 at 9:16 am

    Also have been looking for MA BROWN pickles…grew up in NOLA and never had anything but MA BROWN DILLS. Would love to hear if someone found a substitute.

  • 22 Dean // Sep 12, 2012 at 3:18 pm

    I also would love to find Wiejske Wyroby pickles in Central Florida and am having no luck. I love that pickle.

  • 23 Kimberly Chapman // Sep 18, 2012 at 5:34 pm

    We had been buying the Wiejske Wyroby pickles from Costco both in Nevada and Texas but Costco seemed to stop carrying them a few months ago. I just finished our last jar today and I’m desperate to find another source, and not Sam’s because we don’t do Walmart! Hopefully I can find them somewhere…have they gone out of business?

  • 24 Clare Nolan // Oct 13, 2012 at 8:35 am

    Any update on Wiejske Wyroby pickles? I also bought them @ Costco and ate the last one yesterday? I live in the Chicago area. Thanks!

  • 25 Cathy Brown Dougherty // Mar 10, 2013 at 6:09 pm

    Glad to hear you liked Ma Brown Pickles.
    I grew up eating them, nearly every lunch and dinner. I think Dean Foods owns, but has shelved, the label. Van Holtens still making pickles–they were contemporaries of my Gramps who made the Ma B. pickles. Van Holten pickles are available at Sears and Sam’s Club and other places.

  • 26 Gary Howell // Oct 9, 2013 at 2:27 pm

    In reference to Madolene pickles-My father use to make Madolene pickles and bought the recipe from a Mrs King. He packed them in Norfolk, VA on Tidewater Dr beginning about 1948-49. He out grew the plant and the pickles were then made by Hurlock Pickling Co in MD. They were bought out years later and the company stopped making the pickles. However my father still owned the name and receipe and sold them to Valsic Pickle Co in the 70′s and they after a few years stopped making the Madolene line.
