Letter to Mt. Olive Pickle Company
"To Whom It May Concern
I would like to express my enjoyment of pickles. Often when I go to the market I try to purchase pickles that have the least amount of ingredients. Most of these are from Bulgaria or Israel. Sometimes I buy Mt. Olive Pickles. My burning question is how come polysorbate 80 and yellow 5 are used as ingredients. In my understanding yellow 5 is not a necessary component. Does this affect taste? Does this affect purchasing preferences?
Thank you for your time"
