Lighten Up with Some Snacking Fun from Bick’s®

After the rich indulgences of the holiday season and with the fresh start of a new year, many Canadians may be looking for a change in their eating routines – a move to more satisfying meals and snacks. If you're looking for crunchy and tasty snack ideas, look no further than Bick’s.

Make Your Kitchen Snack-Friendly

If you take the time at the beginning of the week to stock up on easy-to-grab snacks, you'll always have something delicious on hand to throw in your lunchbox or grab and go. Stock up on whole grain crackers, canned or dried fruit, seeds and tree nuts, cheese, fresh veggies, frozen fruit for smoothies and tangy varieties of Bick’s pickles, beets, peppers and gherkins. The snappy crunch and big flavour of Bick’s pickles, beets, peppers and gherkins will make snack time one of your favourite times of the day.

Put A Spin on Sandwiches

Ham and cheese sandwiches can quickly become oh so boring. Now, with the help of Bick’s Mini Crunch'ems® pickles, you can enjoy tasty and crunchy party sandwiches any time. White or whole wheat sandwich bread is trimmed of its crust, spread with your favourite sandwich filling and then topped with a Bick’s Mini Crunch'ems pickle. Simply roll it up and slice into pretty pinwheels.

Pick a Pickle

Bick’s pickles are crunchy and delicious. But did you know that they are fat free and low in calories? Take Bick’s Mini Crunch'ems Garlic Rush Pickles for instance. Full of garlicky taste and bite-size crunch, they are fat free and have only 5 calories per pickle. Now that's a great snack!

Wrap It Up

Sometimes all it takes to make snacking fun again is a change in the bread. Instead of regular white bread, change the grain (whole wheat, flax, 12 grain, rye). Use cookie cutters to cut out interesting shapes. Try bagels, tortillas or pitas instead of sliced bread. Better yet? Ditch the bread altogether and use lettuce leaves as your bread slice. Bick’s shows you how in this fabulous Chicken Lettuce Wrap. Leftover cooked chicken, Bick’s® Wine Sauerkraut, Hoisin sauce, peanut butter, green onions, cilantro and peanuts make this Asian-inspired wrap a clear winner with snackers. .

Homemade Gourmet Snack Skewers

It's fun and easy to pack a colourful selection of hors d'oeuvres skewers. Most grocery stores carry plastic or wooden cocktail skewers. Onto each skewer, place Bick’s Mini Crunch'ems pickles, Bick’s Sour Cocktail Onions and pieces of Bick’s Mild or Hot Banana Pepper Chunks. Go wild and experiment with chunks of cheese, salami or veggies, too.

Retro & Fun Relish Trays

The relish tray is coming back in style and, once again, it's a great way to satisfy the hunger pangs of your guests. On a long narrow platter or dish, artfully arrange Bick’s Mini Crunch'ems, Sour Cocktail Onions, Hot Mix Pickles, Sweet Gherkins and Mild Banana Pepper Chunks. Decorate the platter with colourful slivers of veggies such as carrots, radishes, celery and fennels. Voila! You have a work of art that's guaranteed to satisfy the appetites of your snacking guests.
