The only mustard type pickle that used to be available (too many years ago to mention! ) was Piccalilli itself. Now i have actually eaten piccalili for years and its lovely but a bit too sharp on the taste buds; it can also be a bit chunky with the contents, eg, great big chunks of gherkin and pickled onions! I was really pleased when Heinz bought out its Mild Mustard Pickle.
It isn't completely mild, with a mouth watering, tangy taste and has very small peices of pickle in it. I think it's ideal on ham or cheese sandwiches and on the side with a salad.
The pickle comes in a 280g jar, with an orange label. The label blends in well with the contents which unsurprisingly are yellow. You can see the small bits of pickle inside. It is quite low in calories (only 13kcal for a 10g serving) so dieters certainly need not worry too much!
Ingrediants include gherkin, onions, red peppers, cabbage and mustard powder. There is some salt in it (0.1g per 10g serving), so not alot. Per equivalent there is the same amount of fibre, and fat.
I think it is reaonably priced and can usually be found at under £1.00 It is currently £0.89pence in Tesco. I think it's well worth the price and although the jar is quite small, it can last you quite along time. Its important to keep it in the fridge after opening.
This is a great pickle, kids may even like it due to the fact that it is not too bitter tasting. Highly recommend.
I recently suggested this product to dooyoo so i can rave about how yummy it is.
Heinz have 6 different flavours in their pickle range but this specific one is the Mild Mustard Pickle.
It is found in most supermarkets in the pickle aisle, believe it or not.
I paid £1.24 for a 280g jar but prices can vary between places. I think this is a reasonable price as it is a well know trusted brand.
You can't miss the bold, white, capital Heinz logo on the front of the jar, with 'Mild Mustard Pickle' written underneath. The label is coloured with yellows, oranges and warm reds with a small picture of what ingredients are inside and the jar is clear so you can see the brightly mustard coloured pickle through it.
After popping open the black lid you are suddenly hit by an aroma of mustard,pickle and slight vinegar smell. Quite hard to describe but definately gets your mouth watering.
I would say this is a mix between small chunk pickle and piccalilli in texture. It has tiny bits of crunch mixed through which are bits of pickle, onions, gherkins and red pepper. There is also cauliflower and cabbage on the list of ingredients which i can't quite pick out yet.
This leaves a lovely after taste in your mouth and in my opinion tastes nothing like mustard, which i am not a fan of, and is very mild as stated.
A dollop of this goes with absolutely anything, from sandwiches and salads to the weird and wonderful, my favourite a Sunday Roast. With only 12 calories and 0.1g fat per 10ml dessert spoon you can afford to have it on everything.
Heinz clearly states on the jar that there are no artificial colours or flavours and is suitable for a gluten free diet and vegetarians.
A full list of ingredients, storage details, nutritional information and Heinz contact details can be found on the jar.
I have yet to try the others in the pickle range and am hoping they reach the high recommendation i have of this flavour.
