Friends…I don’t know about you – but I LOVE PICKLES. I really always have since I was a kid. My mom used to let us get the big pickle out of the barrel at the grocery store and we’d walk around the store eating our pickles. I always went for the super sour ones!! They don’t do that anymore – the big barrel’s of pickles. I’m sure it’s a health violation of some sort now. Hey, I survived eating giant pickles out of barrels…bring that back!!!
I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to enjoy pickles after surgery. Sometimes things change after surgery. Foods that you lived for before – you can barely look at after. Things that never settled well before – are great go-to foods now. I was happy to find out that pickles were still a go for me!! I use pickles now to take the place of a carb crunch – like crackers or croutons. I eat pickles everyday with my lunch. While roaming the aisles of Target – I found these beauties: Oh Snap! Dilly and Hottie Bites.
I’ve been enjoying these guys for a couple of months now. They come in a convenient pouch that makes carrying them around in my lunch box easy. I only eat two pickle bites per lunch – so one pouch lasts me just about a school week. If I was not a bariatric patient – I could easily finish a pouch a day! I really like the pickle. It has a great crunch and the pickling spice is not over powering. I also like the Hottie Bites – as they add a little zing to my lunch!! This weekend, I also picked up their Dilly Beans – WOW – those are good!! My Target does not carry their pickled carrots – but I would love to try them.
These pickles are also affordable. At 79 cents a bag – I have no problem eating picking these babies up off the shelf!! As far as nutrition is concerned – you’re looking at: one serving – which is about 3 pickle slices – 0 calories, 0 fat g., and 0 carbs. These are good stats for me. My husband is quick to remind me that the sodium is a little high – but – for one serving a day, I’m OK with that.
For more information about Oh Snap! Pickles you can check out their web site here. For now, I can only get them in Target – but maybe if we all run down to the Hannaford and ask – we can get them locally!!
As always, I am not sponsored by Oh Snap! Nor was I asked to to write up this review – I just seriously have a love for pickles and want to share that with you!! Check out these pickles and you’ll love them too!!! Thanks for stopping in and have an awesome night!!!
