Green Peppercorns in Brine

So, for the past month or so ... maybe a tad longer ... the local kitchen store has had people asking for green peppercorns in brine. Which they don't have, and apparently there isn't anywhere in town that sells them.

Which begs the question. Why is this obscure item suddenly being requested? It wasn't featured in any local publication and I couldn't find anything recent on any popular sites online. So maybe it was something in print that isn't online.

Anyone got any ideas where these things were mentioned, and maybe what the recipe was? And why people are so gung-ho about finding them?
