Pickle Chips Made From Real Pickles Are About To Be Your New Favorite Snack

We all remember standing in our driveways on hot summer days, drinking garden hose water and wiping our grubby little dill-pickle-chip-covered hands on our '90s-style denim overalls.

Dill pickle chips have the ability to transport us back to our childhoods with every bite. But let's get real: they're kind of gross? And not that healthy for you? I can't be alone in thinking this.

Potato chips are canceled — You can get a classic crispy crunch from any kind of chip.

I'm talking kale chips, banana chips, zucchini chips...every tasty chip your heart desires.

Less messy, better for you health-wise, and legitimately tastier. You will not change my mind on this.

Lucky for us, Vlasic is releasing a line of chips that aren't just pickle-flavored — they're entirely made of real pickles.

Thomas M. McGough, co-chief operating officer and executive vice-president of Conagra Brands, Inc., made a statement to Food Business News about the new product:

"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."

"Pickles themselves are a great snack with essentially no calories or carbs."

He continued on to say that eating whole pickles out of the jar can get "inconvenient and messy."

"That's why Vlasic created vacuum-fried pickle chips that are loaded with salty, briny flavors."

The new chip recipe is apparently "still in development."

We don't know exactly when the pickle chips will be hitting shelves, but we do know that they will be available in single-serve 4.25 oz bags.

People have been making their own "pickle chips" for a while now.

Deep fried pickles are honestly one of my favorite fast food treats. Though significantly less healthy than baked pickle chips, they satisfy in a way that nothing else can.

A whole host of new products were announced alongside the pickle chips.

Food Business News announced that puffed pork rinds, fire fries, and Oreo cups will accompany the Vlasic pickle chips as the new kids on the block.

We did not get this kind of snack innovation when we were kids!

How excited are you for the new pickle chips?

A new generation of wicked snacks is on its way and I couldn't be happier.

We're truly living in the era of opportunity.
