Are pickles a Wisconsin food tradition? If they’re not – they should be…
I spent a semester of college interning in Los Angeles. One day, my roommate walked in on me munching on a giant pickle and a huge hunk of cheddar cheese.
He said, “A dill pickle and cheese? That’s totally a snack someone from Wisconsin would eat!”
The guy was right. And there are actually several pickle-making companies in our state. One of the newest and coolest is Oh Snap! Pickling Co., which is based in Appleton. They are celebrating National Pickle Day 2015 with a fun contest giving you a chance to win some cash and prizes.
Oh Snap! is changing the way we think about pickles…
Have you ever struggled to open a pickle jar? How about trying to fish one of them out without getting pickle juice all over your hands and smelling pickles on your fingers for the rest of the day?
Ever tried taking a pickle on the road? Probably not, because what would you do – stick the jar in your cup-holder?
Sometimes you’re just craving one delicious pickle. That’s why Oh Snap! Pickling Co. offers crunchy, mouthwatering pickled cukes in single-serve, flexible packaging without the messy juice.
Just rip it open and pull out your pickle. (That’s what she said)
You can find these Wisconsin-made pickles at Walmart stores as well as a variety of major grocery chains, but watch for the low-calorie snacks to start popping up everywhere.
Oh Snap! Is having some fun with National Pickle Day, which is Saturday, November 14th.
They’re holding a contest and giving away a bunch of fun pickle products -plus a $100 Visa Gift card – just in time for holiday shopping.
