Save the Deli

Strub’s for sale rumours

A rumor is floating around Toronto deli circles that the Strub pickle company, possibly the best pickles in all of Canada, and I’d argue further, is for sale. I haven’t confirmed this yet, but sources say that the company is having some troubles and the Strub family is looking to offload the name and the brand.

Now, hopefully some savvy investor will see the gold here: a crisp, cool, garlic and salt soaked treasure of firm cucumbers, the perfect accompaniment to a corned beef sandwich from Moe Pancer’s or Yitz’s, tongue from Coleman’s or Steeles Deli, or smoked meat from Center Street or Caplansky’s (check out Caplansky’s new website). Hell, what would all the pregnant Jewish girls do if they can’t eat Strubb’s full sour pickles at 5 am? I see chaos brewing.

And let’s not forget my other favorite Strubb product: pickled herring, with the delightfully smart looking herring on the bottle.

Strub’s remains a family owned business, with various Strubs involved since it was founded in 1929. I’m sure there are some conflicts and power plays going on, but for the sake of Toronto, let bygones be and resolve this thing Strub family!

So let’s pray that the powers that be hold a little salvation here and keep Strubb’s pickles afloat in delicious brine for as long as possible.

    Strub’s pickles(but not the full sour) are sold in the Wegman’s near me in Warrington, PA. They compare favorably to BaTampTe and Don Hermann’s.

    The Strub’s brand is so well liked that even here in northern California you can buy it at Trader Joes. The only difference is that it’s bottled under Trader’s name with a Strubs logo on the side of the jar.

  6. Conrad Strub Says:

    I wish Strub’s pickles were still available in South Georgia, (at harry’s in Atlanta). They are great. Better than barrel cured.

  7. Jim Rappaport Says:

    Even here in Connecticut, we love Strubs! Enough to mail-order them to our house.

    Full sour has a whole new meaning with Strubs!

    I have been searching for these for years. Would love to know where to find them around Glendale, CA. I can’t find the full or half sours anywhere on-line and the stores that the Strub’s site says carries them actually don’t. I have been trying to get stores to order these for me with no luck. They are the best!
