Wanted to give a recommendation. My DH purchased this accidentally a year or so ago - he went for pickle spice and picked this up instead. It had been on my shelf for a while and last fall I had lots of cucumbers so decided to try it. This makes a wonderful pickle!!! I would highly recommend it and as soon as I see this in the store again I will pick a couple more up. All the spices, salt, sugar are in the bag all you need is vinegar and water. These are crisp, dill - kind of like the type you get at the restaurant with a sandwich.
