Vlassic Pickles Review!

image

Vlasic pickles—America’s favorite pickles—offer great flavor that is low in calories with no fat. Always crunchy and juicy, Vlasic pickles are available in nine key segments including Kosher Dill Spears, Bread and Butter Chips, Ovals, Sweet Gherkins, Large and Small Whole Dills, Stackers, Relish and Peppers. Look for the familiar Stork character on the jar in supermarkets near you.

I was excited to hit the pickle aisle at the store for this review! Did you know that Vlassic has 100 flavors and sizes of pickles? Who knew? That means there is a pickle variety to please everyone! I love any kind of pickle, but my sweet hubby only likes pickle relish and sweet pickles. I have really enjoyed trying out some of the variety of pickles. I really liked the Kosher Dill Spears, they have such a nice tang and they’re nice and crunchy too.
