Vlasic to release Pickle Chips — made from actual pickles

Conagra Brands is set to release Vlasic’s Pickle Chips, made from real vacuum-fried pickles.

Snack time just got a new entry: Vlasic’s Pickle Chips.

Conagra Brands, Vlasic’s parent company, is set to release the vacuum-fried pickle chips, Food Business News reports.

But these aren’t just potato chips with a dill flavor to them. These are made from actual pickles.

“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,” Thomas M. McGough, Conagra’s co-chief operating officer and executive vice-president, told Food Business News. “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.”

He’s so right. Those jars can be so frustrating.

A spokesperson for the company told PopSugar that the Pickle Chips are “still in development” and a release date hasn’t been set yet.

The chips will come in a snack-size bag, perfect for a quick-hit snack attack.

Until then, we’ll be eagerly checking the aisles.
