Claussen is a brand of pickled cucumbers. It is headquartered in Woodstock, Illinois, an exurb of Chicago. Unlike many other brands, Claussen pickles are uncooked and are typically found in the refrigerated section of grocery stores.

Bruce shares his concerning discovery on Yelp, "All Claussen pickles have High Fructose Corn Syrup. I'll repeat that. All Claussen pickles have High Fructose Corn Syrup! If you Google Claussen and HFCS you will see that everyone thinks only some varieties of their pickles have HFCS and some don't. That is because it isn't listed in the ingredients. It isn't listed in the ingredients on some labels because of a typo, not because it doesn't have HFCS. It's a pretty clever typo and one that I am sure was done on purpose. You need to sit 2 jars side by side in the store so you can read the ingredients. One jar with the HFCS on the label and one jar without it. See where it lists Fresh Cucumbers, Water, Distilled Vinegar, Salt, then it says "contains less than 2% of High Fructose Corn Syrup?" Look at the label on the other jar. Fresh Cucumbers, Water, Distilled Vinegar, Salt, then it says "contains less than 2% of Dried Garlic. They just left off the HFCS. First, don't all the Claussen Dill Pickles taste about the same? 2% dried garlic would be a very strong garlic taste I think. I saw 2 varieties with the HFCS left off the label, but there could be more. I'm sure my local stores don't stock every single variety. The 2 varieties I see without the HFCS labels are probably their most popular. Halves and spears. Until I saw this Claussen's were my favorite dills. I'll never buy another jar now. I also won't trust the label on anything made by Kraft Heinz again. This reminds me of when the tobacco companies told us smoking was safe. When I contacted the company last week the answer I received totally sidestepped my question and said it was nothing more than a sweeter they used. What a bunch of assholes. I'm sending what I have learned to the FDA."


Tell the world why Claussen sucks!
