Practically any food that can be battered and thrown into a deep fryer ends up with a cult following at some point. Fried pickles have been particularly prevalent in sports bars and restaurants in America over the past several years, the sweet, sour, and crunchy snack has roots only dating back to the 1960s. The first known printed fried pickle recipe was in the Oakland Tribune on November 19, 1962, for “French fried pickles”. That recipe called for using sweet pickle slices and pancake mix, yuck! The restaurant with the most verifiable claim over the invention of the fried pickle is the Duchess Drive-In, Arkansas, which put them on the menu in 1963. The inventor of the snack was restaurant owner Bernell “Fatman” Austin, whose restaurant was located directly across from a pickle factory.
