Pickled Walnuts - What should they taste like?Condiments

So what are pickled walnuts supposed to taste like? Are they all looks (round and black) or did I get a sub par brand my first time out?

"It's like very lumpy Worchestershire Sauce
Hmm. For anyone that actually consumes these things can you confirm? The ones I have a pretty mushy in the mouth. I might even like them if they were a bit more solid.
For the pickled walnut connoisseur, what is the better brand?

Geo Watkins is a traditional maker.
I like the description of "lumpy Worcester sauce". They should be vinegary, a little chili and I like a suspicion of cinnamon and cloves.

The taste of the walnut is pretty much railroaded by the vinegar, though. As with pickled eggs the attraction is actually that texture - in this case a slightly crumbly skin with mushy interior.
And like pickled eggs, they go great with asparagus and parmesan.
