Pickles: you either love them or you hate them. So if you love them then you really love them. Some people would eat anything pickle-favored if they could, and are even appreciative of something pickle-themed.
If you're one of those people then I have good news for you - Aaseller on the online store, Etsy, is offering their customers the chance to buy a brand new type of pickle-flavored lip balm.[[imagecaption|| Credit: Etsy/BluePoppyBath]]
The new product comes courtesy of the Etsy shop BluePoppyBath, and for a mere $3.89 (£2.96), you can keep your lips plump, moist, and soft, as well as ensuring that they taste of pickles at all times.
The product's item description states: "Dill Pickle Lip Balm with Shea & Cocoa Butter. Creamy smooth lip balm chapstick with a Dill Pickle Flavor. Sounds weird, but strangely addicting!"
It adds: "Cute gag gift idea for a pregnancy craving! This balm is packed with moisturizing ingredients such as Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, and Vitamin E. Adds a little shine but no tint. Nourishing, moisturizing and soothing!"Recently, an ice-cream store even launched a new pickle-flavored gelato:
A number of reviews from pickle-lovers have been heartily endorsing the Etsy product.
For instance, one Etsy-user wrote: "Oh yum! My friends and I love dill pickles and this lip balm is going to make a great little gift. It’s very moisturizing and has a light smell of dill. My lips love it! Arrived quickly and the green label is really cute. Thanks so much!"[[imagecaption|| Credit: Etsy/BluePoppyBath]]
Meanwhile, someone else chimed in: "Bought the Dill Pickle lip balm as a Christmas present for my pickle obsessed friend. I definitely had to smell it myself before I gave it to her and it smells just like pickles so I know she’s going to love it. Shipping was super quick too!"
Another buyer added: "My favorite lip balm ever! Love the dill pickle and the product. Scented not flavored so you don't lick it off and the balm keeps your lips from drying out and repairs them. Quick shipping, too!"
So there you have it, this lip balm is the perfect stocking-filler, or maybe a good gift to buy yourself.
