    I'm so glad to have found these old photos of P Herold & Sons. My grandfather and his brothers owned it. Their slogan was "Taste Tells." I spent many happy hours as a little girl watching them make and bottle pickles, relish, chow chow, mustards, sauerkraut, jellies and jams, and on and on. I wish I'd had the foresight as a teenager or young adult to take photos of the old-time industrial processes before the factory was gone. Thanks for bringing back sweet memories of what my family called "the pickle works."

    Janet – Thanks for writing in and sharing. I've actually had many family members from businesses depicted in these signs contact me over the years. Glad I could bring these images to you!

    Hi Janet, while going thru some old things of mmy parents (they were from Philadelphia), I found what i believe to be a pickle fork. it's metal and printed on one side is "P.Herold & sons, inc. other side, "taste tells food company". Now that i see what the company produced, i know it's a pickle fork. nice to see things from the past!

    I remember the summers the pickle truck would deliver the pickles and they would throw us pickles that we collected in bags. My brother swam in the pickle vats.
