Recipe Weekend: Let Vlasic be YOUR Snack this Easter Sunday! (review and giveaway)


So do you have everything for Easter dinner yet?

Did you remember your relish tray?

NO?

Then read on!


Did you know that a Vlasic Dill Pickle has LESS than 5 calories. 

Yup- if you want to offer your guests a snack that is low-calorie and tasty, Vlasic has just what you are looking for!


This is just a sample of the their Dill Pickle collection! They know have over 100 flavors and sizes of pickles, peppers and relish. While we were very familiar with their Kosher Dill Spears, I had no idea that they had Reduced Sodium and thinly sliced Stacker Varieties! They even have Bold & Spicy, for those wanting extra heat on their sandwiches!

Vlasic, and their Vlasic Stork, have been a staple in our house for most of my life! Which makes sense, since the Vlasic stork and his tag line (shown above) have been around since 1974. Vlasic pickles started in 1912, and started getting sold in glass jars in WWII. By 1974 when the Stork who thought he was Groucho Marx started sharing about the pickles, Americans were eating 8 pounds of pickles per year! Vlasic was responsible for increasing that consumption by 6 pounds from WWII. So yes, Vlasic KNOWS pickles! And YOU know when you have a Vlasic pickle, by the satisfying crunch it makes when you bite down into one!

Just look at all that lovely pickle goodness! 

And what you see is what you get- Vlasic pickles are Kosher, gluten-free, and contain NO MSG!

And you can't beat the classic Bread and Butter pickle for snacking. They even have Baby Whole Dills to compliment the Baby Sweet Gherkins, for snacking now. (Course you, being an evil mother, could swap them around, for a April Fools Day joke next week....just sayin'.. ) But be sure to include them on your Easter relish tray too, as the Vlassic bread and butter’ and  Vlasic sweet pickles contain just 20 to 30 calories per serving, making them another great snacking choice for Easter hors d'oeuvres, or for Spring Break snacking by the kids!
vlasic pepper choices

You can even take your dinners up a notch with their Pepper line! From Pepperoncini, Sweet Roasted Red Peppers, Hot Jalapeno Slices, Hot Chili Peppers & Mild and Hot Banana Pepper Rings.  Use them and your sandwiches, and other entrees, can suddenly taste like your favorite sub shop's! 

vlasic farmers garden choices

Vlasic even has a new Farmer's Garden line of products, that have no artificial ingredients and are hand picked for just from the field freshness! Each jar contains wonderful ingredients like carrots, onions, garlic, peppers, herbs and spices, for a taste like those that Grandma used to make! In fact, they were voted best new product in 2014 by Better Homes & Garden! They aren't available in all grocery stores though, so you might have to check the store locator for one in your area that does have them,
