AU GRES, Mich. – Are you a pickle fanatic? You probably need to take a trip to Au Gres, Michigan.

About 160 miles north of Detroit, a family has opened a gourmet pickle shop called “Freakin Pickles,” and it’s all the rage. Dubbed the “Pickle Palace,” the shop carries 12 “dill-icious” flavors, available for samples.
