Nothing worse than biting into a burger to find a hidden gherkin!

Why do they use them? Do they hate us?!

IHaveBrilloHair Wed 28-Sep-16 16:33:34

They are the best bit

SloanePeterson Wed 28-Sep-16 16:33:58

Are you kidding me? They're the best bit!

YABVVVVU What's not love about gherkins?! Actually, scrub that. I'll have yours.

DerekSprechenZeDick Wed 28-Sep-16 16:34:48

You lot are as weird as my sister. She waits for us to throw our gherkins at her

OhNoNotMyBaby Wed 28-Sep-16 16:35:07

3 to 1 already Derek. The MN world is not with you on this one.

They are the best bit! You can specify no gherkins - DS1 works in McDs and often gets weirdy customers requesting no gherkins.

I just take the top of my big Mac bun and the family piles the gherkin on I love them

Best bit for me, I have seen that Pizza Hut are now doing frickles (fried pickle) I really wanted to try them but am dieting sad

I agree with you op, they're vile!

PaddingtonLoverOfMarmalade Wed 28-Sep-16 16:36:25

I'm jealous.

Which burgers still have gherkins in? Whenever I go I just get tomato ketchup or mayonnaise. The gherkin is the best bit!

Soubriquet Wed 28-Sep-16 16:36:32

I'm with you

I remove my gherkins and bin them

Disgusting things

Stevefromstevenage Wed 28-Sep-16 16:37:02

I love gherkins and always nick everyone else's.

MrsJayy Wed 28-Sep-16 16:37:06

Mmm Big Mac grin

Mummyshortlegz Wed 28-Sep-16 16:37:57

My dh hates them, he silently opens his burger towards me and I take them and eat them. We don't even need words any more.

CharminglyGawky Wed 28-Sep-16 16:38:09

Gherkins are amazing! I eat round the gherkins so my last bite of burger has all the gherkin in one!

Weirdly gherkins dipped in Doritos nacho cheese sauce stuff is really really good, can't remember how I even thought to try that one but they go brilliantly, all tangy and crunchy!

Excusemyfrench Wed 28-Sep-16 16:38:41

I LOVE them! They are the best bit !

Sparklesilverglitter Wed 28-Sep-16 16:38:58

I can't stand them either.

Although When I was pregnant with DD I had a real craving for them and use to place an order for a quarter pounder and ask for extra gherkins

londonrach Wed 28-Sep-16 16:39:42

Another one who loves the gherkin. Ill have yours op!!

SistersOfPercy Wed 28-Sep-16 16:40:30

When DD was a kid she always asked for a Happy Meal with extra gherkins. Fucking weird child.
She eats them out of a jar in the fridge now. Bleurgh.

MrsJayy Wed 28-Sep-16 16:42:07

I went to a poncy burger place and they gave. You whole gherkin on the side I was in gherkin heaven

x2boys Wed 28-Sep-16 16:42:28

JinkxMonsoon Wed 28-Sep-16 16:42:54

I bloody love gherkins.

Iamworried2016 Wed 28-Sep-16 16:43:02

We rarely have McDonalds.. but when we do we have triple gherkins in ours!!! love love love them.

DerekSprechenZeDick Wed 28-Sep-16 16:44:59

I knew MN wasn't like RL and this is my proof.

Gherkins are the devils phallus and you are all wrong apart from those who agree with me
