I don’t hide the fact that I am a Kansas City Chiefs fan. I am also not a fair weather fan. I truly support my team – even when they lose (which just happened for the first time this season). While I don’t actually have very many opportunities to actually attend a game, I am always in true game day spirit at home with my kids. So, instead of tailgating – we “tablegate” instead!
That simply means we have fun just getting hyped up for the game without leaving our living room. And, honestly, not only is it less expensive, we are always guaranteed the best seats in the house. And, the best part of all is no long lines!!!
When Vlasic reached out to me to see if I’d be interested in doing a review and having my own tablegating party with them, I jumped at the chance. You see, I really like pickles. Wait. Strike that. I absolutely LOVE pickles! I could sit and eat a bowl full just about any time of the day. Of course, I usually stick with my favorite – Kosher Dill Spears. However, with the new products available, I wanted to broaden my taste buds a bit and give the newer Farmers Garden by Vlasic blends a try.
I have to just say that I love the packaging. This makes me feel like I am with my grandmother, in her kitchen, looking at the jars of produce she has canned. Of course, the flavors of these pickles are ah-mazing!!! We had a chance to try them and we absolutely LOVED them. They come in five different varieties:
- Dill Chips – traditional flavor with a refreshing dill taste
- Kosher Dill Spears – perfect slices to pair with a sandwich
- Kosher Dill Halves – the original “out of the jar” snack
- Bread & Butter Chips – sweet and delightful, cut in extra-crunchy slices
- Zesty Garlic Chips – a fan-favorite variety that is bold with a tangy kick, also in extra-crunchy slices
We opted to try both the Bread & Butter and Kosher Dill spears ourselves. They did NOT disappoint!! My husband is a huge fan of Bread & Butter slices, so he was eager to give them a try. Considering I had to ask him to “put down the pickle” to ask him what he thought, it was pretty obvious that he really liked them himself. Suffice it to say, these were a hit at our home and were the perfect compliment to our family tablegating party!!!
