Another brand that has many products that are impossible to beat. I love the original Branston Pickle. You're missing the magic having a cheese sandwich without Branston Pickle. The pickle is so perfectly balanced with the mix of spices, the sweet sour notes, it compliments the cheese, really enhancing the flavour. It's the same story with Crackers and Cheese they, the addition of the chunky pickle brings it to life and excites your taste buds. It's a jar so packed with flavours that it goes with so much, great with cold meats and of course its essential with a ploughman's lunch. I have both the sandwich and the chunky versions and like them both, but I agree with one of the other reviewers, the chunky certainly does have the extra bite. Highly recommend both types, you will never want to be without a jar or two in the cupboard.
Fair sized jar, great value for the price. Branston pickle is impossible to buy locally where we live, but luckily we have this site to call on. Has a real tangy, spicy taste to it full of flavour, we like to have it with a nice meat salad, or cheese sandwiches. A perfect condiment!
This was my first taste of Branston Pickles and I was so excited to try them! The jar arrived in my package wrapped in bubble wrap and safe. I tried it the classic way on a cheese sandwich and it was delicious! They added a nice tangy crunch! I was pleasantly surprised and I can see why these are such a favorite. I definitely will be purchasing again!
Branston Pickle is a family favourite. Having tried the small chunky Branston Pickle I have returned to buying the original pickle. The jar is a good size, the texture is just right and the balance of vinegar, sugar and salt is very good. Of course, what makes this pickle a favourite is the crunchiness of the pickled pieces of vegetables and the lovely caramel colour. It is great on top of cheese on toast or with any sandwich combination but particularly works well with cheddar cheese.
Branston Pickle as most reviews state is great on cheese sandwiches and to be honest you can't beat a cheddar and Branston butty. However, I love it on toasted cheese too and I will add it to ham and cucumber sandwiches as well. Baked potatoes with baked beans and Branston pickle is a treat on a rainy day. So it's versatile as well as tasty, it's tangy and when you pop the lid your mouth immediately waters.BCS offer it at the best price I have found for British products being sent overseas.
This little jar of heaven arrived in my package today! It is excellent on just about any kind of cheese and makes a great sandwich. This is so yummy that my jars don't last very long. There is nothing like Branston Pickle to bring back all the memories of England.
There are many pickles out there but only one Branston, this is another taste that takes me back to England, I love this on cheese sandwiches good quality cheddar or Lancashire, sausage rolls or sausages, great with a scotch egg and if you can be bothered, fantastic with a Ploughman's lunch, Superb quality and a great product for many , many years.
There are few better sandwiches than a cheese and pickle! And Branston, as others have said here, is really the only pickle. So I am very excited to be able to buy it from the British Corner Shop. And now I have to order extra jars, as I have converted a lot of my friends here in the US.
What can I say that has not already been said by others? A British essential food, a must with flavourful cheeses and sandwiches. I find the Small Chunk version easier to spread, but the Original tastes equally good. I keep at least one of them always in stock.
At last a large jar of original Branston Pickle.French cheeses are delicious but ploughman lunches are not the same without it. We have tried the less chunky version which is not as good as the original.Perfect too with corned beef and also with meatballs and noodles!We used to buy a small jar here in France and use it sparingly but now thanks to BCS our supplies are guaranteed.
We always have Branston in the house and this is so much cheaper than buying in the dedicated "English" stores here in Canada. Big chunk is our favourite and nothing beats Branston in sandwiches or with cold meat. I just wish we could get a bigger jar. When I was in the UK I tried small chunk and squeezy but the crunch isn't the same. Thanks for carrying this item.
After living abroad for over 25 years, I'd forgotten the taste of Branston Pickle. When I saw it available online I immediately ordered a jar, and the taste brought back so many memories of my childhood in England - cheese and Branston sarnies were what I grew up on and we used to take this with us whenever we went for picnics and days at by the seaside.
The mixture of crunchy vegetables and sweet and savory sauce is a perfect complement to cheese, cold cuts, or even the Christmas turkey leftovers and meatloaf. Delicious!
One of the things I miss most here in Portugal is Branston Pickle. I always have a jar on the go. Loved by my Portuguese wife too. Cold meat, bubble and squeak and this and the mustard pickle i ordered is a must for Boxing Day. I love it more than Christmas Dinner.
Tried this for the first time since I'm from the United States and we don't have these unless you're in a British speciality shop that carries it. Was very impressed at the taste! I know people in Britain eat them on cheese as a sandwich but I also tried it with a bit of sliced turkey and it made it one of my favorite sandwiches! A plus!
Branston pickle is a "classic". One of the oldies that has been around for yonks.
Crunchy cubes of various veggies in a rich brown sauce that has a sharp but pleasant tartness.
An overall great pickle that compliments cheese, cold meats, sausages, bacon and pies - all of which one can of course buy from BCS.
This is definitely one the the products I miss the most and also one of the products that thankfully never changes! Many of my Italian friends now also like the tangy, full of flavour pickle with a nice cheese sandwich! I can never eat a ploughman's lunch without Branston Pickle.
This versatile pickle has an unending list of foods that it can be paired with. As a child it was part of Boxing Day as it definatly wakes up a cold roast turkey sandwich. It is also terrific on a sandwich with strong cheddar cheese. To elevate this particular sandwich, a glass of beer does the trick and it feels like I'm back in my local - ah if only!
I love cheese and pickle sandwiches and for some reason being unable to get Branston has only increased my desire. I have also introduced my husband to Branston pickle and sadly he loves it too, so now I have to order even more!
I'm so glad to find it in stock here and at a fairly reasonable price. Thank you BCS!
Branston Pickle is one of the best pickles out there. It has multiple uses and is a favourite of all the family and not just the oldies.
Its great colour and flavour mean that once you have tried it you will never forget its great taste and be reaching for it all the time.
Branston Pickle, original. I can't imagine anything else on my cheese sandwiches!
I just wish I had ordered a lot more jars.
I first experienced Branston Pickle 40 years ago, when I lived in London for a couple of years. I am so happy I can order it through British Corner Shop!
Simply the best
You cannot beat the perfect tasting sweet pickle of Branston's most famous product. The crispness of the diced vegetables and its excellent consistency, not too stiff or too soft, makes it the best on the market in my opinion. It goes extremely well with cold sliced meats, and in fact our Sunday tea is usually the remains of our joint, with salad and a generous dollop of Branston. A long standing favourite.
This is the 2nd jar bought from British Corner Shop and my husband is crazy on this stuff . I had a lovely sandwich last night with cheese and it is so good with pickle. It was sent with bubble wrap around and was all in 1 piece .A great product please don't stop selling it as we love it.
The first choice for years, Branston pickle set the bar really high. We have tried other brands but the balance between sweet, sour and spicy is in perfect harmony in one jar. Great on a plate with sausage and chips too. Now I'm feeling hungry. I think I'll fix myself a fast snack...cheese and Branston sandwich.
Nothing can beat the original Branston pickle. Sometimes I place an order on the British Corner Shop just because I've run out of Branston. My favourite way of enjoying it is in a sandwich with soft white sliced bread and a slice of ham. I've tried other brands but they just can't compare.
This is one of the items that will be always on my shopping list,Great for the sandwiches or on cheese on toast.We also had with goats cheese.Next time I will order small chunks just so I know the diference,but this one was really delicious.Branstons is good make,quality.Verry happy with this product.
Branston Pickle is the best there is, and I can't find it anywhere here in France, so it's amazing to track a jar down here on British Corner Shop! There is simply nothing better for adding to a cheese dish, or as part of a delicious snack or light lunch. Thanks for selling it at such a great price too!
This is the best tasting pickle there is,living in Canada we could not get it ,then I found British Corner Shop the rest is history. My husband has a cheese and pickle bun every day and the last time we tasted this was 30 years ago when we lived in England, it hasn't changed one bit. I think we are addicted now and it goes with so many things salads ,sausage rolls or just on a piece of bread.
Cheddar cheese on crackers with pickle is the best snack ever! I have tried different kinds of pickles and Branston is by far my favourite. It has the traditional Branston flavour and I just can't get enough of it, with it's large crunchy bits.
I get withdrawal symptoms when I run out of this. I know, I could put another kind of pickle on my cheese, there's a whole variety out there.......but Branston's is yer only man (as the Irish say).
There is nothing really to compete with it on cheese. It's one of the fixed items on my orders.
Branston is the only pickle. Its been around for a very long time and you can't beat a cheese and pickle sandwich if you are in a rush. Traditionally used for adding to salads and buffets the "bring out the Branston" fame will continue and have pride of place in our fridges for a very long time to come. Small chunk or large chunk pieces of chopped pickle in a medium tangy brown sauce. Delicious mouthwatering 5*
The only opposition to piccalilli for cheese on toast as far as I'm concerned.
I've tried the small chunk version once or twice, but you can't beat the full size one.
Also goes very well with cold cheese and ham and you really can't beat a ploughman's sandwich with a little bit of pickle.
Great, now I'm hungry haha.
