Ok – friends – I have literally fallen in LOVE with a new pickle that I tried out last night. Holy cow….they are so good that I actually went back to the store today and bought another container. This week’s Product Pop-Up is Farm Ridge Food’s Sweet Horseradish Chips!!!
Last night for dinner we had pulled pork – which I cooked all day in the crock pot. I have an incredible recipe that is not too sweet and just all around delish. I always have a pickle with pulled pork. I don’t know if that’s an actual thing, but for me, it goes hand-in-hand. These days when I eat pulled pork – I don’t do bread. I just put it on a plate and have a little veggie or a salad to go with. I made homemade coleslaw and a cauliflower mash last night. I skipped the coleslaw and stuck with the cauliflower mash – which was good stuff. I tried out these pickles and WOW – they went great with the pulled pork. Today for lunch – I had these sweet horseradish chips with my tuna and it was KILLER.
Pickles are a hit for me because of the crunch factor. Since I am sticking to the #lowcarb life, I miss out on chips, croutons, crackers and other crunchy carbs that you might pair with lunch or dinner. I do eat carbs – but they are not the main focus on my meals. A well made pickle packs a serious punch and they pickles are crunchy and full of flavor. They are exactly the zing I am looking for!!
Believe it or not I actually found these beauties at my local Machias Hannaford. They were in the deli section across from the deli counter. They company also makes a bread and butter chip as well as half Kosher dills. Next time I will try their pickle spears!! As far as nutritional facts – I will be honest – these pickles are NOT high in protein!! In fact – they have <1 gram of protein!! But, that’s OK with me – I’m maintaining and living and I want a zingy crunch and I can live with less than 1 gram of protein!! Other nutritional facts include: for 1 serving – about 3 to 4 chips or 1ox – 25 calories, 0 fat, and 7g total carbs. Again, I can deal with these stats….it is still better than a handful of chips or crackers!! Give these pickles a chance, I really think you will enjoy them!
