10 Reasons Pretzels are AWESOME!!!

Best Food Ever!!!

Pretzels. They're hard, they're soft. They're sweet, they're salty. They're twisted, they're straight. They're just plain awesome!!! Here are  my top ten reasons why:

1.) They taste AMAZING on ice cream. Try a caramel sundae with pretzel bits on top! Best.Sundae.Ever.

2.) Soft pretzels are sooooo much fun to make! Boiling bread dough is a blast!

3.) They are super versatile... you can dip them in anything from cream cheese frosting (amazing) to cheddar fondue! (did I mention chocolate???)

4.) They make chex mix soooooo much better. Chex mix wouldn't be the same without those adorable round and grid-shaped pretzels that taste soooo good!

5.) Did you know that you can use them in baking??? Make a pretzel crumb crust rather using graham crackers for a sweet-salty contrast in a cheesecake!

6.) They are so salty! If you  have a dad with high blood pressure, salt becomes a rare and special treat!

7.) Because pretzels are soooo awesome, Snyder of Hanover (a big, awesome pretzel company) went into business!!! They make my very, very favorite flavor of pretzels: honey mustard!!!

8.) It's exceptionally fun to see how many marshmallows you can cram onto one miniature pretzel stick. I got 72. See if you can top that! :)

9.) Have you had the cinnamon kind???  How about the jalapeno? There are tons of flavors... enough that EVERBODY should like them!!!

10.) AND (last but not least) if you're a health nut, they're super low fat!

I hope you have been convinced of how AWESOME pretzels are. And if you are sitting there picking your pretzels out of your chex mix like a two year old picks the Lucky Charm marshmallows out of the cereal, then please, don't throw them away. Save them for somebody who understands and APPRECIATES the awesomeness of pretzels. Like me! :)

  2. Haha, I love your enthusiasm! What kind of rhetorical appeals are you making here? I am pretty convinced, so I guess your arguments are effective! :)

    And 72 marshmallows, huh? I am going to have to try that...

  3. Mom speaking here: You've got me convinced with your soft delicious. Unfortunately, with the hard, crunchy variety of taste buds defy your arguments.
