it's not as good as it used to be preferred it chunkier and crispier!

We bought a jar last week so I don't think it has.

I have a sneaking feeling that the Cunninghams brand was bought out by a Liverpool based firm and all they use now is the name, the product is not half as nice. It used be all chunky and taste almost like home made when it was made on Queens Road, now it's just bland, just not the same somehow.

If anyone has a jar to hand, have a look on the label and see where it's made nowadays?

I agree, I have 6 jars of each in my cupboard and I live over 300 mile away, can only get it when I visit, the people at Morrison's look at me gone out when I go to the checkout with a basket full of picalilli and relish

Used to say "made in Sheffield" on the bottles. Not anymore.....


Check it out. Cunninghams and Hendersons were bought out by the same company a couple of years ago, based in Oldham (I believe) and production was carried out at both sites with it gradually moving away from Sheffield.

I hope its not true, but thats the story from a very reliable source, who's in the pickle trade.

Mine says made in Sheffield, but it ain't like it used to be, BRING BACK THE BIG CHUNKY BITS. so if there is anyone on this forum who works for Cunninghams GET IT SORTED NOW. oh and where have all the gherkins and cauliflower gone??? the jars used to be full of it, why do manufactures have to skimp on things all the time??? WE DO NOTICE.
