'Tropickles' are the name of an unexpected new snack from Walmart's Great Value brand that introduce tropical fruit punch-flavored pickles. As well as boasting an unusual flavor, the pickles—that are soaking in bright red fruit punch—have a bold red coloring to them. In terms of taste, the alternative pickle snack is said to be tangy like most pickles in a jar, yet sweeter and juicier.
Walmart notes that it was inspired by social media for the creation of Tropickles, officially stating that: "The modern-day couple, the pickle and fruit punch met on social media (they bonded over recipes on Pinterest, to be exact); now, we are celebrating their union on Walmart store shelves."
Across the food and beverage industry, the versatility of pickles and pickle brine are currently being explored by a number of companies that are seeking a new take on pickled snacks.
