It is full blown tailgating season, and home entertaining season. When these collide, I like to have things that work well for both.
Pickles work really well for tailgating (and homegating). People love to snack on them or you can use them in your recipes. I took two jars of Farmer’s Garden by Vlasic down to the Chargers/Bengals game this Sunday and they went well with burgers and on their own. These new pickles from Vlasic are thick cut cucumbers with garlic, red bell peppers, and carrots, making them versatile and super yummy.
Whether tailgating at Qualcomm or homegating from my own kitchen, I like to set out little dishes with at least two different pickles, usually dill and bread and butter pickles, but Farmer’s Garden also has a Zesty Garlic that goes great with get togethers. You may want to label the pickles, though, if you have something other than dill chips.

The taste of the new Farmer’s Garden pickles are fresh and to be honest, a little better than the ones my family makes. These pickles keep their shape and texture better than when I make them at home, and I don’t have to get the kitchen messy to have a jar of thick cut Bread and Butter pickles. Plus I get the red bell peppers and carrots!
