Our Mystery Monday trivia question asked this: “Atkins, Arkansas is famous for selling the first what?”

The answer is a fried dill pickle.  The History Channel says the first deep-fried pickle was sold at an Atkins Pickle Company festival in 1963.  They’re pretty much a staple now at fairs, festivals and as an appetizer at many restaurants.

The prize today was the CD ‘In Christ Alone’ from Keith and Kristyn Getty, the amazing worship leaders from Northern Ireland.  Congratulations to Tomi from Mount Vernon for winning the prize.  Find out more about the Gettys here.

Our word of the day was related to the question – GHERKIN. It means a small variety of cucumber. Those baby sweet pickles…yep, those are gherkins!

Thanks for listening!
