If you love pretzels like my family does, you will absolutely love HK Anderson Pretzels. We recently were blessed to receive a sample box of several of their pretzels to try and to share our opinion with you. I also want to share one of my favorite recipes with you.
HK Anderson believes snacking can be delicious AND wholesome... the way it used to be. Using healthy ingredients that also provide great taste, they strive to bring delicious and wholesome alternatives to our snacking choices. Healthy families promote healthy communities and ultimately a healthy America. Sound simple? It is, just like their products: simple and satisfying.
Here is what we thought. First of all we tasted the Peanut Butter Filled Nuggets. My husband LOVED them. He is a big peanut butter fan and these had the perfect amount of peanut butter for the size of the pretzel. He said it was a burst of goodness inside the salty pretzel nugget. He ate the whole bag. My son Marshall's favorite were the Honey Wheat Braided Twists. He liked the way they looked and how crunchy they were. Plus, it was a bonus that they were wheat he said. My favorite were the Double Baked Butter Balls....if you know me, you understand...anything with butter..yummy. I loved the shape and they were crunchy and fun. They would be great in a snack mix because of their flavor and the shape is so cool.
That left the Salty Stix. With those I made my FAMOUS pretzel snack mix and they were enjoyed by all.
That is the recipe I am going to share with you now. I encourage you to get some of these pretzels. I know you will love them. And remember, they are baked, not fried to make them even healthier for you. Isn't that exciting? Over the holidays, there are many recipes that call for pretzels. Snack mixes, cookies, salads and so on and so forth. Why not use HK Anderson pretzels to make that treat just a little bit healthier and a lot better taste? You can find out more about their products at www.hkanderson.com . Go there and check them out. My Wal-mart, Staples, and Big Lots carry them.
