Chips Made Out of Pickles?
If you like pickles and chips now you can cut out the middleman and go right for chips made from pickles.
The Food Business Network is reporting that Vlasic is developing single-serving bags of chips made completely from actual pickles.
You heard that right, I certainly would try them.
Thomas M. McGough, co-chief operating officer and executive vice-president of Conagra Brands which owns the Vlasic brand stated:
Pickles has always been a flavor that people have loved in snacks, whether it’s potato chips or even in our Bigs Vlasic dill sunflower seeds…But pickles themselves are a great snack, essentially no calories or carbs. 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.
Mr. McGough are you suggesting that these pickles may have “essentially no calories or carbs”, I would assume he would say once they hit the fryer all bets are off. Could you image the sales if a company were to invent chips people would enjoy with essentially no calories or carbs, sign me up.
Does this sound appealing to you?
There has been no release date set but be aware they may be coming to your store soon.
