Branston is a brand of savory foods manufactured in the United Kingdom. The company is best known for a pickled relish called the Branston Pickle.
That oh-so-sharp tangy sensation
Cheddar cheese isn't worth looking at without it. Strawberry jam sandwiches travel to a new dimension with it (try...it works!). Branston is iconic, from the label and glass jar, to that oh-so-sharp tangy sensation on the tongue, to its indefinable sense of having always been there... in the cupboard and in the fridge (chill it for curries, sensational!). I've only ventured away from Branston pickle on one occasion... your own label or competitive labels just don't cut the mustard! Branston is school packed lunches, pub lunches on a sunny day, late night fridge feasts when you have the savoury munchies. It's family, being safe, being little and being grown-up (serving it to your own kids) all rolled into one. Long live Branston pickle!!

Represents everything good
What can I not say about this little jar of crunchy bite size morsels. The pickle represents everything good with its tangy taste and natural goodness! It was first created in the village of Branston way back in 1922. I use it as an accompaniment to a variety of dishes from salads and jacket potatoes to fry-ups and curries! Turkey wouldn't be the same without it! Did you know, it contains dates from Iran and Pakistan, molasses from the West Indies, Indian gherkins, Spanish tomatoes, Dutch pearl onions, Sicilian lemon juice, Canadian carrot seeds and exotic spices. Yum! Unfortunately a fire in the Stoke-on-Trent factory has put this jar of tasty goodness in short supply. Ahhhh that poor pickle! Gonna cry now! You know you love it with all your heart like me. BRING OUT THE BRANSTON!
