From Kitchen to Shelf

Founded in 2014, OMG! Pretzels come by their name honestly. They truly are - OMG! - yummy. Lynn and Stephanie Kriebel knew they had something special on their hands after repeated requests from friends to sell their ridiculously delicious, flavored pretzels.

Lynn, the matriarch of the Kriebel family, made the garlic pretzels for her kids as snacks throughout their childhood. Over the years, they became an appetizer staple when she entertained and that's when other people started asking, "How can I get these to enjoy at home to share with family and friends?"

Now, OMG! Pretzels are available nationwide on Amazon, the OMG! website, and specialty retailers. Lynn and Stephanie love getting to share their scrumptious pretzels with others to enjoy for special occasions and making memories just like they have for decades.
