G'pickled eggs: expect the Easter bunny to smell of vinegar this year

INTERCOURSE, Pa. - Although many people feel it's appropriate to pick on the Amish, the Pennsylvanian Germans are getting the last laugh.

G'pickled Easter eggs are flying off the shelves of Amish food stores from Lancaster to Easton, Pennsylvania, and outsiders are left to wonder if they're missing out.

"Einst you've had dese eggs, you canst not return to de udder eggs," said Wilhelmina Radbinder of Dearmont, PA. "We cooken de eggs real good and den picklen dem wid love."

Non-Amish people like Tara Smith of Penntown, PA, is reluctant to jump on the bandwagon, or the horse and buggy in this case. "There's something about hiding a pickled egg and having my kids go looking for it that I can't wrap my head around."

Radbinder holds little stock in what the English, as they refer to Americans, think. "Mein kind always loved de g'pickled eggs, and de English kinder would, too, had dey only de opportunity."
