Does anyone else just HATE pickles on their hamburgers?  Now, I love pickles.  I'll eat an entire jar of them...  but put them on a nice juicy burger and you have pure hell!!!

To me a pickle on a burger..  is like..  just eating a plain pickle.  I can't taste the hamburger anymore...  just the pickle.

So...  anyone else.. have this problem?

Dude, pickles make the burger.

When people take the pickles out of their burgers at McDonalds, i throw up on my own meal.

I like pickles generally, but i don't like them on my burgers at all. So usually i remove the pickles, or order a burger without pickles from the start.

I'd agree with RabbitKarrot, but I wouldn't throw up in my own meal. I'd look at the person/people in disgust for a couple of seconds then continue eating. Really though, pickles are just one of those things you need to make a burger.

#10 Posted by Grouchu (8 posts) -

I prefer without pickles, and it pisses me off to no end when I find one in my burger.

Pickles are my Sworn enemy. I hate those little buggers

I am a hamburger with pickle kind of guy.  The pickles add a satisfying crunch to the burger as well as some extra juice when you bite in.  Also, look at a hamburger without pickles; it just does not look right.

Still tasty, but lacks some pickle lovin
Looks tasty

Pickles in the burger are fine, a pickle spear on the side is THE BEST.

Ahem. As a Le Cordon Bleu student, I've learned that a pickles are not simply put in meat dishes to taste good. Their purpose in any meat dish, such as a hamburger, is to cut through the gaminess of the meat with acidity.

Pickles are great, but onions on the other hand.. o_o

#33 Posted by Dakota (254 posts) -

Extra pickles on the burger, me say.

#34 Posted by Termite (2428 posts) -

I love pickles on their own, but in a burger it just enrages me

#35 Posted by 100 (516 posts) -

A burger without pickles is like a computer without a keyboard, the pickle is essential for a healthy and sexier looking burger.

#36 Posted by mussbus999 (415 posts) -

I love pickles on a burger, but the pickles can't be really big, or else they can overpower it.

#37 Posted by Couse (74 posts) -

Once you take a bite out if a burger and then finally get further in you get crunchy amazing taste that makes the burger.

#38 Posted by TheGreatGuero (8882 posts) -

Pickles and cheeseburgers are a match made in heaven, dudes. They're a hamburger necessity as far as I'm concerned.

#39 Posted by Dj (1044 posts) -

They are good to a point. Eventually you get to a point where the pickle flavor overpowers the burger. Thats when things go down.

#40 Posted by MisoRonery (474 posts) -

With pickles most definitely.  I'll even settle for relish in a pinch.

#41 Posted by Jolly_Lolly (3593 posts) -

I love them, but if they're drenched in ketchup or something like that, I might take them out if I feel like it.

I don't like pickles.

#44 Posted by mattsten8772 (2 posts) -

I agree that pickles ruin a good burger, but if we're talking about a fast food burger, they're required. It's more of a texture thing. The patty is usually too soft and spongy, so the crunch of the pickles is needed.

True, I always have an ice-cold Vlasic dill pickle spear with my sandiwches.  I mean, with my burgers...oh wait, what thread is this again?

I really don't like pickles on my haburger. Sorry...Just not a fan.

#47 Posted by Kloreep (147 posts) -

Burgers are one of the few places where I do like pickles. Really complements the meat IMO. But then, I'm an odd eater who doesn't like to put much else on a burger, aside from requisite lettuce and tomato.

The only reason McDonald's puts a slice of pickle on their burgers is because, in the health departments regulations, the inclusion of the pickle is the tip of the scales balancing the burger from 'real food' and 'confectionery'. True story!

I'm a fan of sliced Kosher pickles on my burger.

Especially with some melted swiss cheese....and some mayo...and mustard...

Oh god, i need a burger.

#50 Posted by Jrad (638 posts) -

Well, I hate everything but ketchup & cheese & burger in my hamburgers, so naturally, I hate pickles on them.
