They're delicious, (I shit you not), one of the finest pickles money can buy. Perfect on their own or sliced, a delightful addition to any meat sandwich. Opies vinegar is so good that I save it for reuse. :)

Charles Dickens mentioned them in The Pickwick Papers
Charles Dickens in his book The Pickwick Papers, published in 1836. In chapter 49 he writes,

However, there he lay, and I have heard my uncle say, many a time, that the man said who picked him up that he was smiling as merrily as if he had tumbled out for a treat, and that after they had bled him, the first faint glimmerings of returning animation, were his jumping up in bed, bursting out into a loud laugh, kissing the young woman who held the basin, and demanding a mutton chop and a pickled walnut. He was very fond of pickled walnuts, gentlemen. He said he always found that, taken without vinegar, they relished the beer.
Mind you, looking at the price you'd be paying, they'd better be some good friends you're buying for. Over here I can get them for around £2.50 a jar.
Yup ed, they're good. And you're paying over the odds. However , I would suggest you take your nuts with a mean gorgonzola and a robust port.

I'll be ordering from Fortnum and Mason. Quality for quality.
Yep, you totally outsmarted me ~ Wildcat.

Oh Hell yes! My sadly deceased father used to buy a full round of the sweatiest mature stilton he could find at Christmas, dig a whole in the middle and soak it with Cockburn's Vintage port. Most excellent served on Ritz Crackers with a slice of pickled walnut and/or a pickled jalapeño. Probably why he never had any money for decent Christmas presents and may well be the reason I became an alcoholic.

You know, Hotarubi, I recently dug over my garden as Mrs. C. fancied a kitchen garden. (A back-breaking task for a bloke with a slipped disk: left me unable to walk for three weeks but she-who-must-be-obeyed must be obeyed.) I've looked into purchasing a walnut tree and it seems that they'd grow well here. Trouble is they take five years to start producing nuts and I'm not sure I could be arsed picking and pickling them by the time I'm 60, (If I'm still capable), even though I'm far more tight-fisted than ed.

I'm sure their exquisite flavor and texture would be lost on my pedestrian taste buds like pearls before swine.

I had to Google Denny's but was dismayed to find they operate in my picturesque area, although, thankfully not in Stockport. Blech.

Laver is seaweed, right?

I don't know whether it's the same variety but Japanese nori is apparently a kind of laver:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nori

If you ever had rolled sushi, or onigiri it was probably rolled in nori.

I am informed that these things should be eaten with Stilton which is one of my favorite things in the iuniverse. I will re-assess tomorrow.
But I am watching you.

BTW ... where are the goddamn walnuts? These things look like pig balls. In that sense they are nuts I suppose.

Some random factors are distinctly plausible:

A/ Something affected your tastebuds immediately before eating such as sucking on a rusty nail, eating toothpaste or soil for examples.

B/ A-C has a much discussed "Northern Palate" and would find a dog turd sandwiched between two random selections from a box of Peek Freans' Luxury biscuit assortment to be the highlight of culinary decadence and you are an idiot to take his advice.

C/ I saw an opportunity to stitch you up.

D/ B & C

Thanks and hugs.

OMG, I almost puked <--first time I ever used that word on the interwebs :x :x :x

You should be ashamed.
I am informed that these things should be eaten with Stilton which is one of my favorite things in the iuniverse. I will re-assess tomorrow.
But I am watching you.

BTW ... where are the goddamn walnuts? These things look like pig balls. In that sense they are nuts I suppose.
Please give my apologies to Mrs. ed.

I couldn't give much of fuck if you puked your guts up. I am after all an English gentleman. :D
Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.
