What experts liked
The pickles are made with non-GMO produce and are gluten-free. They're meant to be refrigerated, but the Oh Snap! website notes that they "can be out of refrigeration for a few hours without a noticeable texture change." And while they are great for snacking, you can also use them for sandwiches, salads, or whatever else your heart desires.
- Bustle
Full of sliced dill pickle bites and packaged with minimal brine for convenient on-the-go snacking. Plus, each pouch is just 10 calories, so you can add one to your lunchbox every day!
- Cooking Light
The Dilly Bites are not drowning in excess brine. Therefore, they are not messy to eat and maintain their crunchiness.
- Low Carb Diet Life
I have also been loving these Dilly Bites on my sandwiches.
- Simple Side of Life
The Dilly Bites are perfect for me…tangy with a little kick.

What experts didn't like
While Oh Snap! pickles are very convenient, if you are someone who wants to eat pickles on the go all the time, then you'd be better off buying a bigger jar of pickles and putting them into a container you already own to reduce waste and save money.
- Bustle
One thing to keep in mind, however, is that pickles are typically pretty high in sodium, so you’ll want to resist the urge and stick to the serving size! Unfortunately, it’s only one-third of a pack, but if you do choose to enjoy the whole pouch, you might want to keep a bottle of water close by and watch your sodium intake the rest of the day.

An Overview On Pickle Snacks

If you’ve acquired a taste for their salty, sour kick, pickles can be an irresistible snack. But did you know it’s also one of the most versatile?

Really, this should come as news to no one. We see pickles served up as side dishes and garnishes on everything from sandwiches to fine dining entrees. And as anyone who’s been to a county fair knows, they taste pretty decadent when fried.

The fermentation process that turns cucumbers into pickles also increases their longevity, which makes them the ideal candidate for a bagged snack. You can expect pickles that are traditionally brined in saltwater to last up to two years. Processed or dried pickle snacks can last significantly longer than that.

But are they healthy? Good question. Processed pickle snacks can vary wildly depending on what additives have been thrown into the mix, so check the packaging if you’re watching your calories or have allergies. Standard pickles are actually quite low in calories, but their sodium content is high. As with any snack, enjoy in moderation.

DWYM Fun Fact

Pickles seem like such an innocuous comfort food. So how did the phrase “in a pickle” become slang for a troublesome situation?

The most popular early use of that idiom is likely in Shakespeare’s play “The Tempest,” where the shipwrecked sailor Alonso asks the jester Trinculo, “How camest thou in this pickle?” But the phrase has its roots in a Dutch phrase loosely translated as “sitting in the pickle,” which basically means “to be drunk.”

The Pickle Snack Buying Guide

  • Pickles can be made either through soaking cucumbers in vinegar or saltwater. The former method can be done a lot quicker, but generally results in a different, more muted flavor. Saltwater brining not only brings out the signature kick of traditional pickles, but it can also impart extra health benefits. The saltwater ferments the cucumber, creating probiotics that can boost your gut health.
  • Are pickles gluten-free? Not always. While there’s nothing in a bare-bones, traditional pickle that contains gluten, many commercially sold brands are at risk of cross-contamination. What’s more, pickles made with vinegar brine might trigger an allergy in those with non-celiac gluten sensitivity. It’s always best to check the packaging to be sure.
