Vlasic to sell pickle chips made from actual pickles


INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) — The popular pickle brand Vlasic is getting into the chip business.

Conagra Brands Inc. will begin selling Vlasic pickle chips, Food Business News reported.

"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, 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, 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."

The chips are vacuum fried sliced dill pickles with salt and vinegar seasoning.

A date has not yet been set for when the new snack will hit shelves.
