This Sandwich Shop Replaces Bread with Giant Pickles, and I Think a Road Trip Is in Order


Okay, ladies and gentlemen. It’s time to get on your knees and thank the Big Man upstairs. Because this is big news.

Elsie’s is a sandwich shop in Haddon Township, New Jersey, and they’ve taken the sandwich game to a new level. They’ve replaced the bread in their sandwiches with HUGE pickles. How delicious does that sound?

Co-owner Katherine Cohen described how she came up with the brilliant idea. She said, “My mom is a diabetic, and I made her a pickle sandwich instead of using bread. In the original store, we weren’t zoned for seating but we had a dining room set up in there. And she was out there eating one day and somebody said, ‘Hey, I want one of those!’”

Elsie’s is using their pickles for all kinds of concoctions now.

It’s been a major hit. Cohen said, “There were lines out the door. We took our family pickle recipe and basically rebranded it. We started making sandwiches in pickles, roll-ups on cucumbers and roll-ups on pickles, and people lost their minds!’’
