Saturday Morning, I had the pleasuring of hosting the Great Pickle Challenge on the Boardwalk at Bally's Casino in Atlantic City.

Six contestants - five men and one woman - tried to eat as many pickles as they could in five minutes. The pickles, New York Half-Sour, were from United Pickle.

The winner of the competition was Jack Diamond, who consumed just over 2.8 pounds of pickles in five minutes. Second place was Randy Bognatz who ate a little over 2 pounds of pickles.


Diamond won a trophy from United Pickle, plus a weekend package at Bally's. All the finalist won a one night stay at Bally's.

The contest  was held in conjunction with the re-opened Pickles Deli Express, on the Boardwalk at Bally's.
