    Why aren't we allowed to have sweet pickles???

    I love them and they would make a great snack for me but I'm curious why they are on the lists of foods we shouldn't have. I'm confused about it.

    I buy the sugar-free when possible because I'm diabetic but the regular ones seem like they should be allowed too.

    The ones I buy have the following nutritional values:

    Calories in Better Valu Sweet Pickles (Sweet Gherkins) - 2 pickles
    Serving Size: 1 serving
    Amount Per Serving

    Calories 35.0
    Total Fat 0.0 g
    Saturated Fat 0.0 g
    Polyunsaturated Fat 0.0 g
    Monounsaturated Fat 0.0 g
    Cholesterol 0.0 mg
    Sodium 125.0 mg
    Potassium 0.0 mg
    Total Carbohydrate8.0 g
    Dietary Fiber 0.0 g
    Sugars 7.0 g
    Protein 0.0 g

    There isn't any potassium or Phosphorus listed in the ingredients and when I check web site for nutritional content they don't list any. There is some calcium chloride in the list but near the end of the list of ingredients.

      You probably already know how to rotate a pdf. go to, there is still a software out there called Hetzner Rotator, which allows for rotating pdf files without any need for an external program, and the quality of output files is amazing.

          The reason we're not allowed to have sweet pickles is because they're too sugary. They're meant to be a treat, but they're not supposed to be eaten every day. You should visit this site for best template about aviation. I will say that I do prefer the taste of regular English cucumbers over these Japanese ones; they have almost no flavor whatsoever and are more watery than normal cucumbers.
