When she was 17 years old, Dee was dared to eat a pickle with her chocolate-drizzled strawberry ice cream. To her surprise, she loved it. Dee still enjoys this bizarre combination of ice cream and pickles after 32 years, and last April Fool’s Day, she enticed the customers at Pine Mountain Country Coffee House (the shop she owns along with her husband) to try it as well.
"How about something crazy for April.....ice cream and pickles! Try a Pickle Ice cream sundae! Not an April's Fool Day joke, it's really good, especially when you top it with chocolate sauce," Dee wrote on the Missouri mercantile's Facebook page.
But it wasn't until a few days later when Ken was poking fun at his wife over dinner that they decided to actually sell the "Pickle Split."
And so the Pickle Split came into their menu.
Would you try this?
