Today we celebrate America’s favorite snack food; today we celebrate pretzels of all sizes: thin, thick, crispy, soft, twist or straight. Today is National Pretzel Day!
Everyone across the United States is familiar with the salty snack that satisfies hunger on a daily basis. Known as one of the oldest snacks in history, more than $550 million worth of pretzels are sold in the US on an annual basis. The average person consumes more than two pounds of pretzels per year! You can find pretzels almost everywhere. From the streets of NYC, to the shelves of your local grocery store, it is safe to say that pretzels still remain one of the most popular snacks of all time.
The ripple brand team recognized the love that people have for this popular snack, so we decided to include pretzels in our flavor lineup. The barkTHINS™ dark chocolate pretzel flavor is the perfect combination of sweet and salty. The smooth, delicate taste of the fair trade dark chocolate, and the light, all-natural crunch of the pretzels is hard to resist! It is one of my personal favorites and satisfies my sweet tooth, while defeating my hunger pains.
So in honor of this marvelous holiday, I encourage everyone to go to the streets of your city and purchase a soft pretzel, or go to your local market and buy your favorite type of pretzel. Enjoy!
Oh how the pretzel has grown! Let’s take a look at all of the types of pretzels:
