12 Weirdly Wonderful Pickle Snacks You Need in Your Life ASAP
Gone are the days when a plain-old pickle from the jar would suffice. The world has graduated to pickle-flavored snacks, and you're going to want to try them all immediately. We're talking pickle cashews, pickle popcorn, pickle soda, and pickle gummies (!). And that's not even half of the tangy, salty, acidic snacks made with the distinct flavors of pickles. Read on to discover 12 of the most weirdly wonderful snacks you can actually buy for your pickle-loving self or friend.
Pickle Juice Soda
Perhaps the most unexpected post-workout snack is Van Holten's Pickle-Ice pops ($11). But it's true — pickle juice can help with cramps, dehydration, and soreness. But if you are not interested in the health benefits and just love the idea of eating frozen pickle juice like a popsicle, you can keep these stocked in your fridge anytime a craving strikes.
Trader Joe's Popcorn in a Pickle
The holy grail of pickle-flavored snacks, in our opinion, is Trader Joe's Popcorn in a Pickle ($2). The light and airy popcorn is enhanced with the distinct flavors of dill pickles, and trust us when we say you won't be able to stop yourself from eating handful after handful.
This Gummy Pickle package ($13) might seem like it's filled with little pickle-flavored gummies, but it's actually one giant pickle in gummy form. It's about four-and-a-half inches long and two inches wide, and it looks like your average dill pickle.
Thick + Bold Dill Pickle Kettle Brand Potato Chips
Holy potato-chip heaven. Kettle Brand's Thick + Bold Dill Pickle Chips ($3) are nothing short of perfection. The thick-cut, ridged chips have a texture that stands up to the intense pickle seasoning.
Trader Joe's Somewhat Spicy Dill Flavored Kettle Cooked Potato Chips
These tangy pickle chips were one of the best new Trader Joe's products from August 2016, and while they were sadly discontinued, they're worth requesting as a comeback item.
