I don't know what it is about sandwich places around here, but they persist in giving me a giant slice of dill pickle with every sandwich. Which means that Foodgoat generally gets two giant slices of dill pickle, because the cold + wet + sour combination is not something I'm down with.
Fortunately, my mom loves them, because she has been eating one dill pickle every day. For years she has had these random, painful leg cramps at night. When a co-worker recently suggested that eating dill pickles would help, she decided to give it a try.
To her surprise, she hasn't had a single leg cramp since introducing pickles to her daily lunch.
How does it work? Is it the acetic acid? Potassium? Magnesium? I don't know, but there is even a product out there called Pickle Juice Sport, endorsed by a Dallas Cowboy tight end, which is supposed to stop and prevent muscle cramps.
My advice is that they need to work on that name.
