Move over feta pasta, a new food trend is emerging on TikTok, and this one is for pickle lovers.
Chamoy pickle kits are the latest fad where people can create their own sweet, spicy, sour, crunchy pickles using boxes of prepared ingredients.
The kits come with one large dill pickle, chamoy powder or sauce, sweet candy like Fruit Roll-Ups, sour candy like Warheads or Sour Punch Straws, and sometimes chips like Takis.
Chamoy is a Mexican condiment made from dried apricots, chile de arbol, Tajin seasoning, and hibiscus flowers.

The chamoy pickle first gained traction last year after several companies caught people's attention with bright-red, chamoy-infused pickles.
It seems the point of the pickle kits is to mimic the sweet, salty, spicy, and sour taste of chamoy by combining food in and on the pickle.
The chamoy pickle kits don't always contain an authentic chamoy pickle but it uses chamoy sauce or powder that people can put on themselves.

To make a chamoy pickle, people first scoop out some of the pickle and place Sour Punch Straws in the middle. They then wrap the pickle in the Fruit Roll-Up and add chamoy sauce on top with whatever else they’d like.
It may sound like a lot of flavors at once but according to TikTokers who have tried the viral kits, it’s not bad.
“That’s actually really nice,” TikToker bethmartin.x said in a video reviewing a chamoy pickle kit.
