Kruegermann Pickles in WLA or Santa Monica?

ClamHappy Feb 1, 2010 09:04 AM

I'm really in a pickle here (pun intended)!
I know of a few specialty shops and delis that carry them, but does anyone know
of any supermarkets (Von's, Albertson's, Whole Foods, etc.) in WLA/Santa Monica
(or a neighboring city) that carries Kruegermann Pickles?
I'd like to find some for my Super Bowl spread. Thanks.

    I found them at Gelsons in Calabasas so I imagine that Gelsons in WLA would also have them.

      Thanks, an L.A. Times article about a year ago said they could be found "at
      select Vons, Pavilions, Gelson's, Mayfair, Albertsons and Whole Foods markets",
      so I'm hoping some eagle-eyed pickle lover on the Westside can
      save me a lot of running around!

        I see them regularly next to the orange juice at the Pavilions on Wilshire at Barrington.

      Sorry, I don't do SMkts.
      European Deluxe Sausage Kitchen always carries Kruegerman.

        Shab, thank you, I stopped at that Pavillions on my way to work this morning,
        but they only carry the Kruegermann sauerkraut and red cabbage, no pickles.
        Ric, thanks also, I go to European Sausage Kitchen occasionally, but it's a
        ways away for me (for just pickles), and hard to find parking around there.
        So my pickle quest continues!

          To get the pickles which, by the way, are pretty good but a tad sweet for my taste, there's a parking lot down the alley to the west and behind the store. Very rarely is it full.

            Thanks for the parking tip. FYI, besides that sweeter style of pickle
            most of the German delis (like European Sausage Kitchen) usually carry,
            Kruegermann also makes sour dill, spicy garlic, and spicy Hungarian
            style pickles as well (I'm getting hungry just typing that!) : )

              "sour dill, spicy garlic, and spicy Hungarian" is exactly what I buy.
