So, why shouldn’t they invade your swimming pool, too?
If you are a card-carrying pickle lover and you happen to have a swimming pool, you’ve got to fill it with inflatable pickles. Yes, you read that correctly. On Amazon right now, there are three-foot long inflatable pickles selling for less than $5 apiece.
But these aren’t just garden-variety, boring pickles. These inflatable pickles are personable, with a massive smile plastered on their face:
Who can blame him for smiling? He’s the hottest vinegar-soaked item in dining today.
These inflatable pickles are normally listed at $12.99 each but are currently listed at $4.59 each. If you’re a serious pickle fiend, there’s also a three-pack and a six-pack available.
However, the Amazon reviews were mixed. There are plenty of five-star raves (“Best $5 I’ve ever spent”), but the unhappy customers complained that the inflatable pickles are “cheaply made” and had difficulty staying inflated.
The inflatable pickle is made by Rhode Island Novelty, a company that brought you such tasteful items as a pillow that looks like a hamburger, a hat that looks like the poop emoji and a backpack that has a tyrannosaurus rex on it. Actually, I kind of want that backpack.
If you want to make your pool look even more awesome this summer but pickles aren’t really your thing, fear not — there are a ton of other great inflatables on Amazon. If you still want to go the food route, how about a massive inflatable pineapple, a wine bottle pool float or a six-foot long piece of pizza?
Elsewhere on the internet, you can find giant, multi-person peacocks, flamingoes or unicorns (of course) to float on, as well as a huge retro convertible.
One thing is for certain: If you’re not floating on something weird that doesn’t belong in the pool, you’re doing summer wrong.
