Update: We finally connected with the brains behind the business, owner Michelle Latchison Turner. Updated with the story behind the pickles and how she came up with the name.
As soon as Gut Check heard news that a business called Pimped Out Pickles (4259 Martin Luther King Drive, 314-401-1807) just opened its first brick-and-mortar store two weeks ago, we grabbed our coat and ran out the door.
There inside the tiny storefront we met Finess and Bart Latchison, two brothers who run the business with their mom, Michelle Turner.
"She started selling them, and it really took off to the point where she could really be doing something with it," says Finess. "I never would have guessed there's so many pickle lovers."
