Grillo’s Pickles has unveiled new packaging to prevent spillage. It’s gone viral.

Pickle fans, rejoice: Diving into a fresh jar of Grillo’s spears is about to get a whole lot easier.

The Westwood-based pickle company recently unveiled new twist-top packaging, designed to sidestep the vinegary spillage common with its previous containers, which required snackers to break off a plastic tab before popping open the lid.

The new packaging was announced on April 1 — timing that resulted in some pickle aficionados thinking it was a prank — and it is currently being rolled out in stores, starting with the brand’s 32 ounce dill spears, hot spears, and dill chips.
