Are you a pickle lover and trying to watch your sodium intake?  Vlasic wants to help with your sodium intake, that is why they have created some great New Pickles, with 25% less sodium!  For this review I received one jar of Reduced Sodium Stackers Kosher Dill and one jar of Reduced Sodium Kosher Dill Spears.  I wasn't sure what to expect, but they taste great!  My family loves pickles, so these were gone in no time.

About Vlasic

How Vlasic became America's favorite pickle is truly an American success story!  It's the story of how a Polish immigrant family, a great idea, a big taste and a funny stork won their way into the hearts and stomachs of generations of hungry consumers.

Frank Vlasic moved to America in 1912 to build a better life for his family.  Problem was, he made cheese and not pickles so the success part of the story took a while.  After saving every dime from his $2 a day car foundry job, Frank established a creamery business in Detroit.  He eventually turned it over to his son, Joe.

Fortunately for their story about pickles, Joe expanded the family milk and cheese business into selling Polish pickles spiced with garlic and dill.  During World War ll, however, his supply of pickles dried up, so Joe started testing a whole new idea: selling Polish pickles in glass jars.  Smart move.  Joe couldn't keep up with demand and the Vlasic Pickle brand was born!

Joe's son, Bob, joined the company after the war ended and became general manager of the entire Vlasic operation - which still included the creamery.  Its first plant was built in Imlay City, Michigan.  Together, over the next 20 years, Joe and Bob grew Vlasic into America's number one pickle.  Not bad for cheese makers.

They also played an important role shaping American eating habits with their glass-packed pickles.  In 1933, per capita pickle consumption was 2.09 pounds.  By 1974 consumption grew to 8 pounds!  Joe and Bob became so successful at pickles that they finally dropped the milk and cheese entirely.  Vlasic Pickles became as American as apple pie.

Today, Vlasic is owned by Pinnacle Foods, which is committed to the principles of quality, taste, trust and innovation established by the Vlasic family.  Today's brand includes dozens of varieties of pickles, peppers and relish in many cuts, flavors and sizes.

Innovative new products like Homestyle Squeeze relish - continues the Vlasic tradition of bold experimentation.  Snack'mms offers today's on-the-go consumers and easy way to include Vlasic Pickles in their snack-on-the-fun lifestyles.

You may already have your favorite Vlasic Pickle, but even if you do, they'll make sure there's always a new Vlasic to try, or a new way to try it.  "After all," says the Stork, "you've got 10,000 cute little taste buds so we many as well have 100 ways to keep them happy!"
