Recent Josh Duggar news has less to do with his trial and more to do with his future. In April 2021, Josh was arrested on suspicion of downloading and obtaining child sexual abuse material. In December 2021, Josh’s trial found him guilty of the crimes, and he’s now in an Arkansas jail awaiting sentencing. Recent reports suggest the Duggar family, among others, can send Josh gift packages involving food. Here’s what they can send — and one of the foods is a beloved Duggar favorite.

The Duggar family made headlines long before the Josh Duggar news hit the media in 2021. When Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar had their TLC shows, 19 Kids and Counting and Counting On, they shared their way of life with the cameras. And they showcased their famous family recipes, like tater tot casserole, and favorite snacks.

Over the years, the Duggars made it known they adore pickles. “The Duggars love pickles,” Jessa Duggar once said on Counting On.“I think it probably started that when my mom is pregnant she craves pickles, that is the one thing. Every time we see her eating pickles we say ‘Are you pregnant?’”

They enjoy pickles so much they even give and receive them as gifts. Additionally, they love Pringles and beef jerky.
“Almost all of us like pickles, but each one likes a different kind,” Michelle Duggar explained. “Same with the Pringles and the beef jerky. Christmas is the one time of year when every child gets their favorite flavor of each treat.”

Recent Josh Duggar news notes the Duggar family can send Josh gifts while he stays at the Washington County Jail in solitary confinement. According to The Sun, the jail ATM website is accessible for anyone who wants to send Josh gifts. The website has various care packages available to send — and they involve food.

The site notes the care packages start at $22 each, and each package contains a different type of food item or snack. The Salty Care Package has Doritos, chips, Cheetos, buffalo pretzel pieces, and more. The Sweet Care Package contains candies like Three Muskateers candy bars, Snickers, M&Ms, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, Jolly Ranchers, and more.

The Soup Lovers Care Pack for $30.95 contains several different types of Ramen packets as well as saltine crackers. The A.M. Delight Care Pack that goes for $44 contains instant coffee, cappuccino, bagels with cream cheese, mini donuts, Pop-Tarts, and more.

The Big Deal Care Pack goes for $109 and includes various meals, candies, and snacks.

It seems Josh might be the most interested in the Meal Deal Care Pack that goes for $44, though. This care package contains three dill pickles (a Duggar favorite) in addition to a lasagna pouch, a taco filling pouch, saltine crackers, tortilla shells, and more.

Josh Duggar remains in the Washington County Jail while he awaits sentencing. People reports probation officials had to create a pre-sentence report prior to sentencing. That took about 30 days after the trial to create.

“Then each side will have two weeks to study the report and to make objections,” Clay Fowlkes, acting United States attorney for the Western District of Arkansas, explained. “Then, after that report is issued, studied, all the objections are filed, that’s when we’ll really start thinking about what our sentencing recommendation to the court is going to be.”

Judge Timothy Brooks told Josh he’ll likely receive his sentence by April 2022. Josh may face up to 20 years in prison or $250,000 in fines.
