Hanging a pickle-shaped ornament on the Christmas tree is a tradition for many Milwaukee families. Like St. Nick, it is rooted in a German tradition and because we have such a large German population in Milwaukee, it has been absorbed as a Brew City tradition, as well.
The world's most popular pickle-in-a-pouch is made by Van Holten's in Waterloo, just an hour from Milwaukee.
The Pickleback, which is not a Nickleback tribute band, is a relatively new drink combo that pairs up a shot of whiskey with a pickle brine chaser. OnMilwaukee recently took the "Pickleback Challenge" at The Pfister Hotel's Mason Street Grill.
Seems a recent episode of the Nickelodeon series "iCarly" mentioned and featured pasta stuffed into taco shells.
