Having a Baby? Maine Ice Cream Shop Will Give Pregnant Women a Free Pickle Spear
I can't really attribute the fact that I am with child to my sudden love for pickles, because the pickle passion has always lived deep within my heart.
Here's some proof: I had pickles with my birthday breakfast in bed this year:
Pregnant ladies loving pickles is a tale as old as time. Pregnancy and pickles go together like peanut butter and jelly! There is nothing like a salty, crunchy, cold treat, especially if you are experiencing pregnancy during the summer months.
The Scoop Deck in Wells, Maine, is making the pregnant community feel special and loved by offering a free pickle spear to those carrying a child this summer. I can't help but wonder if those who are carrying more than one child earn more pickles. Because suddenly I have a feeling I might be having triplets.
This has been a fun tradition at the Scoop Deck for many years.
Apparently the pickles went away last year, but they're back, baby! Just in time for my pregnant self to reap the benefits. The staff will never ask if you are pregnant (because they have manners), so if you are with child and want to redeem your free spear, simply point to your belly and say "pickle please!"
Not having a baby but still want to get involved in the pickle fun? Pickle spears are available for purchase for anyone who would like one!
