DES PEROS, Missouri — Relish a good mystery?
Pickle jars keep appearing alongside an onramp to Interstate 270 in this suburb of St. Louis and it has motorists scratching their heads over this odd “dillemma,” Fox 2 Now reports.
It’s garnered enough interest to have a Facebook page dedicated to the pickles. It has more than 2,200 followers, with 2,000 joining during the past few days as the mystery has gained national attention.
According to the Post-Dispatch, the pickle jars … sometimes full, sometimes half-full … have been showing up since at least 2012, although it might date to 2010. During Christmas, a jar with a red bow appeared, the Post-Dispatch reports.
It’s unknown who is leaving the jars there and why, but followers of the Facebook page are hoping to solve the mystery.
“They have survived snowmageddon, construction and protesters,” the page says. “There has got to be a story behind these pickles and inquiring minds want to know.”
Let the butter chips fall where they may.
