    You know those squeeze bottles of pickle relish? Well, they haven't perfected them yet. Whenever I try to squeeze some relish on my hot dog, all I get is juice. So I squeeze a little harder and nothing happens. So I squeeze a little harder and, all of the sudden, about two tablespoons of relish blops out on to my hot dog. I have to get a knife and spread it out, which usually includes scooping about half of it off of the hot dog and throwing it away.

    If they can't make squeezable relish, they shouldn't sell it.:mad:

    Also. They are screwing the public by selling those packages that contain the three pack of one each, a big bottle of mustard, ketchup and relish. That just doesn't work. I use a lot more ketchup than mustard. I use a lot more of both than relish. I have about three big bottles of unopened relish in my closet because my wife only sees how much cheaper it is to buy the three pack than buying them individually.

    Sorry to rant. I realize that this will only result in insults and abuse from the people whose moms still put their relish on their hot dogs.

    I hate relish (I like real pickles though), but Costco sells the Gulden's mustard in a 3 pack. Those containers STILL suck though, because it's really hard to empty them completely. The mustard thickly lines the entire inside of the "empty" clear plastic jar, just mocking me.

    That's more of a dill relish, if I recall. The Heinz stuff is sweet relish. I'll give it a try if I can find it.

    finally, a thread that cuts to the heart of our problems.

    i love relish, and those squeeze bottles suck. i don't use them anymore. a sammich full of pickle juice is not a good sammich. not bad, but not good! :mad:
