The Beginning

SuckerPunch Gourmet was founded in 2011 by stay-at-home dad, part-time artist, and champion of flavor, David van Alphen.  David set out to create a better pickle.  Tired of all those pansy cucumbers in brine, he began experimenting with spice combinations galore.  After months of trial and error, he created what we believe is the “perfect” pickle.  At first the 15 spices give you a slight taste of dill, followed by a bit of sweetness and then POW, you get sucker punched with a bold rush of flavors and a little bit of heat.  And, that is how our Spicy Garlic Original Pickle was born. 


Since those humble beginnings we have added a complete line of pickles, two Bloody Mary Mixes and two salsas to our family of taste sensations.  Regardless of the product, we promise you bold flavor that will knock you out!
