- Mom Does Reviews
Oh Snap! Pickling Co. makes a wide variety of pickles without brine that come in convenient pouches. At long last, pickle lovers can toss a pack of pickles into their bags without worrying about pickle juice leaking everywhere and without having to get too much pickle juice on their hands when eating them. The Oh Snap! pickles are available as whole pickles — dill or spicy — as well as cut up slices — also in dill or spicy — called Dilly Bites and Hottie Bites.
- Bustle
Oh Snap! Dilly Bites have made my life a snap because now I can work, keep the bag of bites open and just poke my fork in to take a single bite. I don't have to slice it up or get my hands messy. My man is a spicy kind of guy so he prefers the Hottie Bites on his sandwich. These pouches are so cool, we just grab out a few of the slices and lay them in our sandwiches and we are good to go.
- Simple Side of Life
The Hottie Bites are pre-cut and crunchy. In fact, the pickles were crunchy even after I forgot to refrigerate them for a day. You can eat them with your fingers or bring a fork. The Oh Snap! Hottie Bite Pickles also claim to be hot-n-spicy. To me, the pickles are packed with just enough heat to wake you up. Therefore, you can enjoy the whole package without crying or having to stop for a drink.
- Low Carb Diet Life
They’re cold, crisp, and delicious.

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.

DYWM 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.
