A gent from the Northeast walked into Stone Brothers & Byrd several years ago, claimed that he had the original patent on Dilly Beans and demanded that we cease and desist our little homemade version immediately. We challenged him to a “duel” and the poor fellow took us up on it. Ten paces…we turned…and drew a jar of dillys. One taste of his and we knew there was nothing to worry about. Then, the look on his face sealed the deal. He bowed his head, ceaded the Dilly Crown to Stone Brothers and walked into the sunset. We wear the crown with humble pride.
