THURSDAY, APRIL 20, 1950 BLVTHEVII.LE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS U.S. Pickle Sales Reach New High 25,000,000 Cases Consumed in 1949 According to Report Figures released recently by the U.S. Department of Commerce disclose that during 1349 Americans consumed 25.000,000 cases of pickles, which, suprisingly enough",' Is more Jj&hat the domestic consumption ^d^'caniiun 'omatoes on a case basis. "•- This disclosure was good news, of course, to the National Pickle Packers Assocatton, whose members also accepted the report on record pickle sales as a challenge, since they will sponsor their second-annual "National Pickle Week" fi'om May 18 through 27, with the purpose of topping the 1949 sales It Is estmaited that Americans spent approximately $150,000,000 on pickles of varieties in 1949. Tiie Increase in pickle Packers Association. They state that pickles have been recognized as a healthful and nutritious food due to their high vitamin and mineral content Other factors are the increased use of pickles as a tasty addition to cooked foods; their continued use as accompaniments for sandwiches salads, soups and a garnishes and meal pepper-uppers, and the facl that pickles are popularly priced to meet almost any budget requirement. Although Womc.i buy more pickles during the summer than any other time of the year, the month of May probably offers more ( reason for buying and serving pickles than any other month of the year. May is the forerunner of showers, teas, cocktails and dinners for the bride- to-be. It Is also the month to plan graduation parties, good-bye parties for folks leaving for the summer and last but not least . . . people Jtjck up on pickles for summer Hlhiics. There are pickles for every occasion to go with almost any course. There are whole dills, cross cut sweets, sweet relish, sours, mustard pickles, sweet style. Most everyone who enjoys picjhes wants them particularly during summer months.
