Billie Williams, a 56 year-old special-education teacher, explains how to make Kool-Aid marinated pickles.
“They’re easy to make a gallon,” Ms. Williams said. “You pull the pickles from the jar, cut them in halves, make double-strength Kool-Aid, add a pound of sugar, shake and let it sit — best in the refrigerator — for about a week. The taste takes to anything. A while back I made a mistake and bought a jar of pickle chips instead of halves or wholes. Came out fine. This whole Kool-Aid pickle thing is going so good, you wonder why somebody hasn’t put a patent on them.”

I have heard them called Koolickles, but I think Pickools is a far better term. What do you think? Would you eat these? Can you think of anything else you could use Kool-Aid for?
