    Why aren't we allowed to have sweet pickles???

    I love them and they would make a great snack for me but I'm curious why they are on the lists of foods we shouldn't have. I'm confused about it.

    I buy the sugar-free when possible because I'm diabetic but the regular ones seem like they should be allowed too.

    The ones I buy have the following nutritional values:

    Calories in Better Valu Sweet Pickles (Sweet Gherkins) - 2 pickles
    Serving Size: 1 serving
    Amount Per Serving

    Calories 35.0
    Total Fat 0.0 g
    Saturated Fat 0.0 g
    Polyunsaturated Fat 0.0 g
    Monounsaturated Fat 0.0 g
    Cholesterol 0.0 mg
    Sodium 125.0 mg
    Potassium 0.0 mg
    Total Carbohydrate8.0 g
    Dietary Fiber 0.0 g
    Sugars 7.0 g
    Protein 0.0 g

    There isn't any potassium or Phosphorus listed in the ingredients and when I check web site for nutritional content they don't list any. There is some calcium chloride in the list but near the end of the list of ingredients.
