Zapp's New Voodoo Battered Fried Pickles Are Our Dream Snack
Plus other cajun-style appetizers too.
There are a lot of people out there who like Zapp’s Voodoo Chips. Imbued with a unique tangy seasoning, some folks have sworn these New Orleans-themed chips are underrated for so long that they’re now likely just properly-rated.Well if you’re a fan of Voodoo Chips, fried pickles, or just a good old-fashioned flavor fusion, you might want to know that Zapp’s apparently makes Voodoo Battered Fried Pickles. Parent company Utz essentially took a great potato chip and found a way to make it even better with a bit of a briny crunch.
If you’re a curious neophyte, you probably might be wondering what exactly makes these Voodoo Chips (and Voodoo Batter) so special. The secret is that they offer a little bit of something for everyone—a product listing mentions their “unique flavor that features salt and vinegar with a smoky BBQ sweetness and spicy, Jalapeño kick.” Basically any kind of flavor you want in a chip is at (and eventually on) your fingertips.
The best part is that even if you don’t particularly like fried pickles that you can make in your microwave (I’m not not judging you), there are other options. The post from @JunkFoodAdventures that brought this beautiful at-home appetizer to our attention mentions other appetizers as well. They include Boudin balls, a Cajun comfort food made with pork sausage and, in this case, “Cajun Crawtater seasoning.” To heat things up even more, they’ve also got pimento-stuffed jalapeño poppers. Really, what more could you ask for?
So if you’re missing out on that trip to New Orleans you’d had planned, at least there’s a way to recreate some of the snacks you might find down in the Bayou. If these snacks are anything like the chips they’re based on, your freezer is going to be a very happy place.
