The heat is on, and there’s no turning back now. But pickle lovers might find joy knowing the next time they break a sweat, a pickle freeze pop can cool them off.
Van Holten’s Pickle Ice Freeze Pops are available for order on Amazon Prime in bulk. The pickle pops are sold in a 48 pack for 18.99 on Amazon. So, no worries of running out anytime soon once the package hits your doorstep. If you just want to test it out, there’s also an 8 pack going for $6.98. At last checked, the popsicles were in stock so grab them while you can.
According to the description on Amazon, the popsicles are made of real pickle juice. Pickle juice “is known to be loaded with essential minerals and electrolytes like sodium, potassium, calcium and magnesium that your body needs to perform at its peak,” the product description explains. This is the same reason some sports drinks have added sodium — for some athletes, it’s important for restoring electrolytes.
Pickles have come a long way, and their popularity has grown over the years.
Vlasic recently announced the release of dill pickle chips made from actual pickles.
“Pickles has always been a flavor that people have loved in snacks, whether it’s potato chips or even in our Bigs Vlasic dill sunflower seeds,” Thomas M. McGough, co-chief operation officer and executive vice-president, of Conagra Brands said in a statement to Food Business News.
Pickle fans can also snack on dill pickle-flavored cotton candy. The company Candyfavorites.com sells the green colored treat in a tub. The description says the candy “is here to delight and amaze.”
A Texas brewing company also released a Sour Pickle Beer and other pickle flavored drafts.
So, pickle lovers have plenty of options to get that sweet and tangy flavor. But if you’re looking for something on the go and not messy, Van Holten’s Pickle Ice Freeze Pops should be on your “to-try” list.
