Happy 2021! We all have high hopes that this year will be better than the last. OMG! Pretzels is here to give you some fun and easy ideas that will make snack time ridiculously delicious and full of crunchy pretzel goodness.
Let’s start things off with some perfect pretzel snack pairings:
Pretzels and Nut Butter. Pick your favorite nut butter – almond, cashew, peanut (we know it’s not really a nut) – and add a little dab onto the OMG! Pretzels flavor of your choice. This snack is great for kids and adds some protein to snack time. For a sweet treat, substitute cookie butter, also known as Speculous spread for the nut butter to pair with our Sweet & Salty Pretzels.
Pretzels and Yogurt. While you could use this as a breakfast idea, we also love it for a great pretzel snack. If you want to make it fancy, you can layer the yogurt and pretzels parfait-style or keep it simple by just adding crushed pretzels to the top of your yogurt. You can even leave it in the container if you’re looking for an on the go snack option.
Pretzels and Hummus. This is a pretty classic pretzel snacking option. Hummus adds protein and these days with so many flavor options for hummus and our variety of OMG! Pretzels flavors, the sky is the limit on combinations. Chocolate hummus with Sweet Chili Pretzels, roasted pepper hummus with Garlic Pretzels, garlic hummus with Lemon Pepper Pretzels… the list goes on and on.
Pretzels and Avocado. You can do slices of avocado or mash it up for more of a guacamole feel; either way, paired with one of OMG! Pretzels’ savory sourdough pretzel nuggets, you have the ultimate pretzel snack in one bite.
Pretzels and Cheese. This is another healthy snack idea that has a lot of options. You can pair the flavored pretzels of your choice with a complimentary cheese – think Garlic Pretzels and fresh mozzarella or Chesapeake Spice with creamy Havarti. You could also shake up snack time with Sweet & Spicy Pretzels mixed in with cottage cheese.
If you prefer amazing pretzel snacks you can just munch on out of a container, we’ve got you covered with just a little bit of prep work. All you need is a big zipper-top plastic bag or other air-tight plastic container, then simply mix up the ingredients and get to snacking!
Here are some ideas for bold and innovative trail mixes you can easily put together with various OMG! Pretzels sourdough bites.
Italian Inspired Trail Mix. Start with our Garlic Pretzels and add roasted chickpeas, pine nuts, and oven dried tomatoes for a savory twist on trail mix.
Tex Mex Trail Mix. Our Cheddar Jalapeno Pretzels are the star of this trail mix. We suggest adding pepitas, dried mango, and a handful of corn chips for a great pretzel snack.
Seaside Trail Mix. Another savory pretzel snack, this idea features our Chesapeake Spice gourmet pretzel bites. Throw in some oyster crackers, honey-roasted peanuts, crispy mushroom chips and for a flavor-forward snack.
Sunshine Trail Mix. Lemon Pepper Pretzels are the base of this pretzel snack. Add in banana chips, pistachios, and golden raisins to round out the trail mix.
Sweet & Salty Trail Mix. The perfect pretzel snack for when you want a little of something sweet and a little of something salty. Start with our Sweet & Salty Pretzels, then add some mini chocolate chips, cashews, and dried cherries. Your tastebuds will thank you!
Old Fashioned Trail Mix. For a taste of home, use our Salty Butterscotch Pretzels in this trail mix. Use shredded coconut, slivered almonds, and a few white chocolate chips.
Sweet & Spicy Trail Mix. This pretzel snack uses macadamia nuts, dark chocolate chips, and raisins paired with our Sweet & Spicy Pretzels for a satisfying pretzel snack.
Asian Inspired Trail Mix. Sesame sticks, dried pineapple, and wasabi peas along with our Sweet Chili Pretzels make the perfect pretzel trail mix.
Sometimes pretzel snacks are more fun with a dip. Here are some yummy options that highlight a few OMG! Pretzels flavored sourdough pretzel bites.
Sweet Cream Cheese Dip. A great pretzel snack option for any of our sweet-flavored gourmet pretzel nuggets, you can modify this to meet your needs. Simply whip room temperature cream cheese with a half teaspoon of vanilla and 2 tablespoons of heavy cream and then add in cinnamon, sugar, nutmeg or other spices to complete this great pretzel snack dip.
Chocolate Hazelnut Dip. This pretzel snack dip couldn’t be easier. With an electric mixer, blend store bought chocolate hazelnut spread with 2 tablespoons of heavy cream and you’re off to snacking heaven.
Easy Chocolate Dip. All you need for this one are chocolate chips – you choose the variety (dark, white, milk, semi-sweet will all work) – and 2 tablespoons of coconut oil. Warm up the coconut oil and add in about 6 ounces of your chocolate and stir to combine. If the chocolate doesn’t melt right away, you can heat in the microwave at 20-second intervals. Then, pair with Sweet & Salty or Sweet Chili Pretzels and enjoy.
Green Goddess Dip. This herbaceous dip can use sour cream, Greek yogurt or full-fat coconut milk as a base. Simply add lemon juice and a variety of fresh herbs – we recommend garlic, parsley, chives, and basil – into a food processor and blend until smooth. If you want to boost the health factor, avocado is a great bonus ingredient to this pretzel snack dip.
Onion Dip. Again, you can use a few base options for this dip, including sour cream and Greek yogurt. You can opt for the homemade route with caramelized onions and herbs or you can get a store-bought onion soup mix. Either way, this slightly savory and slightly sweet dip is delicious with our Garlic Pretzels and our Chesapeake Spice Pretzels.
Honey Mustard Dip. This pretzel snack dip is also versatile. You can boost a store-bought honey mustard with some chili sauce for a little spice or thicken it with a little mayonnaise. You can also control the flavor with a homemade version; for lots of kick, use whole grain mustard and for a little fun, use a smoked honey.
Cheese Dip. Who doesn’t love warm, gooey cheese? Get some store-bought help with your favorite variety of cheese dip and then use our Cheddar Jalapeno Pretzels for the ultimate cheesy pretzel snack!
Orange Glaze Dip. To close out our awesome pretzel snack ideas, here’s a sweet pretzel dip. You need 1 cup of confectioner’s sugar, 2 tablespoons of orange juice and the zest of an orange. Simply mix. If you want the glaze to be thinner, add a bit more orange juice.
No matter which pretzel snacks you try, we hope these ideas help you kick off 2021 with some ridiculously delicious snacks. Our gourmet sourdough pretzel bites give you a great crunch and bold flavor every time. Happy snacking!
