Do you know what day it is???
Maybe the best day of the year...... National Pickle Day!
As you know, I absolutely love pickles and extra pickles is always the first thing out of my mouth when ordering a sub, burger or (my favorite) Cuban sandwich.
I received a few coupons to try Oh Snap! Pickling Company's pickles (a Wisconsin brand too!) and share a pickle loving post for National Pickle Day because not celebrating pickles just seems wrong! Oh Snap! offers individually wrapped pickles in four different varieties: Gone Dilly, HotTie, Dilly Bites and HotTie Bites. The pickles are different than the average individually wrapped pickle because they are not packed in brine and the result is a crunchy, fresh and flavorful pickle!
Oh Snap! is having fun and celebrating National Pickle Day with a a chance to win $100 and Oh Snap! products. To enter this fun contest you need to do the following:

With the coupons I received for my Oh Snap! pickles I decided to make a version of one of my favorite throwback appetizers- Pickle Wrap Dip. I love pickles wraps, but they can be a pain to make, but this dip is a fantastic short cut. I also use a food processor to chop and that makes the prep time literally under 5 minutes. I used Oh Snap! Dilly Bites to make this dip and really was happy with how crunchy they were so they could stand next to the ham and cream cheese as a crunchy component to my dip. I don't think I will make making pickle wraps anytime soon when I can make a shortcut version like this that is just as packed with my favorite flavors. When I was pregnant with Kellen I adored pickle wraps (Kellen absolutely loved the Dilly Bites for snacking!) and this baby seems to enjoy pickle wrap flavors just as much. I will be serving this dip tonight at our party to find out if Baby L. is a he or a she..... or maybe a pickle based on how often I like to eat them!
