Pretzel Crisps: our delicious discovery


While on an intense hunt for new snack ideas, a friend recommended we try Pretzel Crisps, mini pretzel-crackers available in a variety of flavors. Apparently it was time for us to rethink the pretzel.

We still love large, doughy, salt-covered pretzels, but Pretzel Crisps let us focus on the best part - the crunchy and flavorful pretzel exterior. It always reminds us of the Seinfeld episode where Elaine has a million dollar idea to sell only the best part of the muffin, the top! Their business failed because they couldn't figure out where to ditch the bottoms. Luckily, Pretzel Crisps solved this riddle by figuring out how to capture that that great pretzel flavor in a crisp (instead of painstakingly peeling pretzels just to sell the crust).

Over the past couple weeks we've tried nearly every flavor of Pretzel Crisps on the market and come up with a lot of great pairing ideas. In fact, we've had so many pairing ideas that we're making this a series, so stay tuned! For our first installment, we're breaking open bags of deli style crisps - Original, Sesame and Everything.

Below are our first 4 pairing ideas for Pretzel Crisps, but feel free to fire up the the FoodPair Recipe Search Engine and enter your favorite ingredients to get recipes customized to your tastes.

All this talk of Pretzel Crisps with unique toppings is making us hungry. Good thing it's snack time somewhere!
