It's chicken, it's a pickle, it's a Chickle. But is it a sandwich?
The arms race that is minor league food has just seen the deployment of the greatest weapon yet. On May 17 and 18, fans attending the final two games of the Fresno Grizzlies' four-game set with the Nashville Sounds will be treated to something truly out there: a bunch of spicy chicken stuffed into a pickle, which they call
frogurt a Chickle.
There's a lot going on here, so let's break it down: The Fresno Grizzlies took a pickle, turned it into a bun, then filled it with some Nashville-style hot chicken. In the process, they created the Chickle, an unholy marriage of sweet, spicy and salty that, quite honestly, sounds pretty good (or at least worth trying).
The Chickle (which is an awful name, to be frank) will only be available today and tomorrow. The Grizzlies, meanwhile, have yet to respond to this reporter's question as to whether or not the Chickle is a sandwich*.
*It is not a sandwich, for the love of God.
