The Pickals Story

When life hands you lemons, you're supposed to  make lemonade. But Arthur Cohen felt pickles were more his thing. Plus, he already had an awesome recipe. Over the years, his flavorful, garlicky pickles had become an obsession among his family, friends and neighbors.

So when Arthur was diagnosed with ALS in 2014,  selling his Pickals to raise money for an ALS cure seemed natural.

Today, Arthur’s Pickals aren’t just raising significant funds for ALS research and patient care, they’re raising awareness of this devastating disease.

Our goal is to create a sustainable funding source for ALS research through the sale of Pickals.  Pickals will be available nationwide in retail food markets.  Customers will buy this gourmet product and understand that profits go directly to find a cure for ALS.  Pickals will come to symbolize the fight to BEAT ALS just as the pink ribbon symbolizes the fight to beat breast cancer!

We hope you'll try Arthur's Pickals. If you love them, please tell your friends. Just have a breath mint first.
