You can find these about once a year in New England, and yes, I did buy two jars.

I love spicy pickles.

One of the greatest fears that I had about having gastric bypass surgery was that I would have to give up spicy foods. This proved not to be an issue.  Indeed, I probably eat more spicy food now than I did before my gastric bypass.

Is it hard not to drink with spicy foods?

I like spicy food Gretta but as with all of my meals, I always have a couple of pieces of cucumber, celery, orange, grapes or watermelon etc. available to end with if needed.

I haven't found drinking necessary, I'm more apt to need a little water with dry food

I get a little concerned; I have 2 Mexican sons in laws and another son in law who can down ghost peppers like apples.  I make my hubby try something if I'm thinking it's going to need a fire extinguisher to put it out!  Daughter lived 2 years in china and cooks with hot peppers too so I'm surrounded..  as soon as I was cleared at 12 days post op I was putting regular taco sauce on refried beans for flavor.  Taco sauce and salsa are my go to low calorie condiments.  I put that stuff on chicken...

I can't figure Claussen supermarket faire at all, Lois. Last year, we had the spicy spears, this year they can't be found, at least not yet.
