FRESNO, Calif. — The Astros’ AAA affiliate, the Fresno Grizzlies, are putting a new twist on Nashville hot chicken–by stuffing it in a pickle.

The ballpark treat was available during two of the team’s games against the Nashville Sounds. They’re calling it the “chickle.”

It’s yet to be determined if the snack is a good luck charm. The Grizzlies went 1-1 in games where chickles were served.

But the most important question is: is it a sandwich?
