It is the time of year for football. While no one at our household is a huge football fan, we cheer for the Eagles because they are a local team. Football also means tailgating parties and for some reason the thought of friends, food and a party sounds like more fun to me than actually watching the game.
Recently Vlasic sent me the supplies for a tailgate party. Thanks to temperatures in the 20’s and several inches of snow on the ground and also the fact that we would much rather be warm than freezing, our tailgate party became a homegate party instead. This pickle loving family was more than slightly excited to try the Vlasic Farmer’s Garden Pickle. I don’t think the kids would have minded it at all if the only food at the party would have consisted of eating pickles right out of the jar.
After our first taste of Vlasic Farmer’s Garden Pickles, we knew we instantly had a new favorite pickle. The taste of these pickles reminds me more of those found in the refrigerated deli section of the grocery store. I especially love that they have a nice crunch. These delicious Vlasic pickles 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
Each 26 oz. artisan style mason jar includes a mix of yummy, crunchy cucumbers, carrots, red bell peppers and other spices. These pickles are the real deal as they are made with no artificial flavors. It is homemade goodness right from the farm to your table.

2 cup chopped cooked chicken
1/2 cup chopped celery

1 tablespoon yellow mustard
4 Vlasic pickles slices finely chopped
Chop chicken and add celery. Mix in sugar, mustard and pickles. Add enough mayonnaise to moisten salad. Refrigerate until serving. Serve on sandwich rolls.
