There is something comforting about snacks. Biting into something crunchy and salty instantly calms the nerves. Wasn't it so great getting home from school, throwing off your backpack and digging into a snack that just made you forget the world? That is, until you had to pull out your homework?
I think we can all agree that the quintessential snack is Pretzels. The perfect blend of salt and crunch. They come in all shapes, sizes and flavors. They are BFF's with dips, spread and salsas.
Pretzels are every other snacks best friend.
Recently, the lovely people of Snyders of Hanover sent me a Back-to-School Package of snack goodness. Believe me, I was stoked. Because if there was ANYTHING we were brand-loyal to growing up, it was Snyder's pretzels. My dad would literally not allow a different kind of pretzel into our home. The package that arrived at my house did not disappoint:
|Unearthing the awesomeness|
|The beautiful Stash O' Snacks|
|Did you know that Snyder's makes certified gluten free pretzels?!?|
Yeah me neither. But I love it. They sent 2 big bags.
|Snyder's also oversees Lance products. They sent 6 boxes of crackers,|
8 packs each!
|OH SNAP! 2 boxes of Pretzel Snaps, 10 100-Calorie Bags each.|
|Aw! So widdle! 2 boxes of Mini Pretzels, 10 100-Calorie Bags each.|
|There is nothing funny to say about sticks - but my kids love 'em.|
2 boxes of Pretzel sticks, 10 100-Calorie Bags each.
|How happy are these kids?|
You should have seen my girl's faces when I opened that box full of some of their favorite snacks. W also had my friend, Diane, who struggles with gluten intolerance, do a taste test on the Gluten Free pretzels. She gave a delighted (and surprised) 2 thumbs up!
Along with the delectable goodies, Snyders sent along some great recipe ideas, which you can also find on their website. Check out these fun ideas:
