Pretzels – 6 Reasons They are the Perfect Snack

Who doesn’t love a yummy snack? Whether it’s a pre-lunch “pick me up,” an afternoon “just make it until dinner” eat, or a late-night “not quite ready for bed” treat, snacks help us make it through the day. Because snacks are so popular, there are plenty of store-bought options to make snacking easy. But what makes a great snack? From salty to sweet and chewy to crunchy, healthy to decadent, simple to gourmet, a lot depends on your mood and palate. 

We are obviously partial to pretzels. They come in so many shapes, sizes, textures and flavors. Pretzels come in large bags and small ones. You can enjoy them on a budget or splurge on gourmet pretzels. You can eat them straight out of the bag for a quick snack. They are satisfying and healthy. Before a workout, the salt from pretzels can even boost your electrolytes!   

We have more than just love for our bold, flavored gourmet pretzels. We have a deep respect for them. We think OMG! Pretzels are the perfect snack. Here are six reasons why:

  1. Flavorful
    OMG! Pretzels are available in eight distinct and innovative flavors. With four savory and four sweet offerings, our gourmet flavored pretzels have something for everyone. The wholesome ingredients we use to create our seasoning blends pack a punch of flavor in every ridiculously delicious, poppable bite. From bright and tangy Lemon Pepper to our classic Garlic and coastal-inspired Chesapeake Spice, our gourmet flavored pretzels include herbs and spices to delight your taste buds. Our sweet flavored pretzels are the perfect snack because they provide the ideal blend of salt or spice with raw cane sugar. Each of our flavor blends is created with love by our Chief Baker, Co-Founder/Owner Lynn. Her decades of experience cooking for family and friends shines through with the unique flavors she creates for these perfect pretzel snacks. 
  2. Crunchy
    Snacks with a crunch are more than enjoyable, they’re craveable. It’s documented that the sound and texture of crunchy foods keep us coming back for more. The more noise we hear, the more we favor that crunchy snack. Additionally, crunch signals freshness in our minds, which is likely a key reason we love snacks like pretzels and chips, and veggies like carrots and celery. There’s something about the sound when you take a bite that makes snacking on sourdough pretzel nuggets so satisfying. The texture crunchy pretzels lend to snack time also makes them the perfect snack. They aren’t too hard, so even young kids can enjoy pretzel snacks, but they offer a distinct crunch and mouthfeel. Pretzel nuggets also hold their own if you want to dip them to make the perfect snack even more fun. 
  3. Versatile
    Eating the same things every day can get boring. That’s why we think the perfect snack must be versatile like our gourmet pretzel nuggets. Sure, they’re super yummy all by themselves, but they are also great when paired with other classic snacks for the ultimate snacking experience. Our savory flavored pretzels are delicious paired with a variety of dips such as salsa, hummus, spinach/artichoke, tzatziki, guacamole, and honey mustard. Our sweet flavored pretzels are scrumptious when dipped in chocolate or caramel sauce. All of our pretzels can be added to a fresh and flavorful trail mix you can make yourself in minutes. You can also enjoy our gourmet pretzels with cheese or a nut butter for added protein and to make the snack more filling. 
  4. Healthy
    Pretzels are low in calories and fat, which helps to make them the perfect snack. OMG! Pretzels are made with four, simple ingredients – wheat flour, salt, yeast and baking soda – which are all natural and preservative free. Pretzels also contain fiber, which supports gut health and can help lower cholesterol. Our pretzels are always baked to perfection after our flavor mixtures are added. For this process, we use canola oil, which is a healthy oil because it contains omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids and has less saturated fat than other oils. Anytime you can snack and feel good about it is “thumbs up” in our book!
  5. Transportable
    Snacking must be simple! Whether you’re in the office, at home, or on-the-go, the perfect snack needs to be easily accessible. Our packaging is a zipper, so you can quickly reseal the bag after grabbing a handful of pretzel nuggets. Plus, our bags of gourmet pretzels are the perfect size to throw in a tote bag or stash in a drawer. Our bite-size pretzel snacks are also a great size for small plastic baggies for kids’ lunches and backpacks. OMG! Pretzels can really be enjoyed wherever you decide to grab a snack. That’s pretty perfect!
  6. Fun
    Snacking should be fun, and our bite-size gourmet pretzel nuggets are just that! When you pop one of our perfect pretzel snacks in your mouth, OMG! will come popping out. You’ll love the flavor and the crunch. Straight out of the bag, our flavored pretzels are the ultimate in snackability. They will bring a smile to your face every time you eat them. Plus, our gourmet pretzels are an elevated snack that you can share with family and friends as a gift or when they come over. Having a go-to gourmet snack for when guests come over makes entertaining easy, so you can spend more time with the people you love – making memories and sharing stories. Bringing joy to others makes life (and snacking) more fun.
