This Westport Bakery’s Kool-Aid Pickles Have Been a Sweet Seller
If you have yet to marinate your pickles in Kool-Aid, you're missing out, my friends.
There's a quaint Westport bakery that's been owned and operated by Karen Smith since 1981. Baked goods such as muffins, danish, turnovers, cakes and pies are the signature sellers, but one new item has been flying off the shelf like hot cakes.
Perry's Bakery calls them "Koolickles," short for Kool-Aid Pickles, and as strange as they sound, townies can't get enough of them.
They were first introduced at the Westport Fair and the crowd ate them up.
As far as flavors go, you can choose from cherry, blue raspberry lemonade, sugar-free pink lemonade, and sugar-free orange. The bakery says orange has been the go-to flavor, with pink-lemonade second-best.
This sweet and sour snack has been quite the trend on TikTok and I have yet to hear a negative review.

For years, I've frequented Perry's with my father. We always grabbed a pastry or a linguica roll with a side of coffee before heading off to work when I used to do HVAC. If the job was local, that was our go-to place to kick off the day.
Back by popular demand, you'll be able to sink your teeth into these odd treats Monday-Saturday, 5:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sunday, 5:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Oh, and take my advice: Don't knock them until you try them.
