Pickle chips are heading to stores and they’re about to rock your world
Need a little midweek pick-me-up? Conagra Brands is releasing a line of pickle chips that are packed with a ton of sour, crunchy, green deliciousness. Prepare to drool directly onto your computer.
Food Business News broke this pickle-y news, noting that Conagra Brands is hoping to elevate their snack business with some new tasty flavors. Apparently, pickles are a $1.1 billion industry (!) so the company is getting right on that juicy dill train.
“Pickles themselves are a great snack, essentially no calories or carbs,” Thomas M. McGough, co-chief operating officer and executive vice-president, told Food Business News. “But eating pickles out of a conventional jar is inconvenient and messy, and pickle snacks are actually becoming a thing, particularly in c-stores. So we’ve created Vlasic single-serve pickle slices and also a Vlasic vacuum-fried pickle chips that taste absolutely fantastic.”
So, yes, this means you will literally never have to struggle with a pickle jar again and still get all of that sour goodness in one very easy, very crunchy bite.
Sadly, there hasn’t been a release date announced for the pickle chips and a Conagra spokesperson says they’re “still in development” so that means we’re all going to need to tide ourselves over in the meantime. Like, snagging some of Lay’s Fried Pickle with Ranch chips instead (pickles + ranch = weird combo but very here for it).
There’s also a dill pickle dip, which is super creamy and includes pieces of dehydrated cucumber with garlic powder, dill weed, and mustard. Let the salivating begin.
If you want to take your pickle loving to extreme levels, you can head straight to Elsie’s, a sandwich shop in Haddon Township, New Jersey, where they have replaced all of the bread with pickles. Options include the pickled Homage Jo Katz Roll, which is packed with corned beef, roasted turkey breast, Swiss cheese, Russian dressing, and homemade coleslaw.
We should all probaaaaably be getting in our cars and heading to New Jersey right now.
Here’s to living our very best dill lives. Pickles = happiness.
