Pretzels Can Make You Dance (Giveaway)

November 12, 2010   157 Comments

It is Friday and Snack Girl is READY for the weekend. Here at the homestead we have a Friday night dance party consisting of tunes by the Village People.

Pretzels Can Make You Dance

(The four-year-old crowd loves the Village People.)

We also serve snacks and one of our favorite Friday night treats is pretzels. They go well with certain bubbly beverages and they have a great CRUNCH.

Recently, I was sent a sample of pretzels from H. K. Anderson and they were delicious. There is a lot to like about pretzels because they are baked rather than fried.

When you compare a pretzel snack to let's say -Doritos - you are getting much fewer ingredients, preservatives, and artificial flavors by choosing pretzels. Pretzels are basically flour and salt baked until crunchy. They aren't as good for you as an apple - but they are a much healthier choice on the chip aisle.

Before meeting H. K. Anderson, I just bought whatever pretzel was the cheapest on the shelf. I know it is hard to believe, but these are different. They just taste better.

My favorite was the "peanut butter nuggets". Basically, it is a round pretzel filled with peanut butter so you get some protein with your snack. 10 nuggets will set you back only 140 calories which is a good size for a snack. (7g fat, 15g carbohydrate, 2 g protein, 2 g fiber)

I also like just plain pretzels dipped in mustard. So yummy!

So get your groove on tonight, eat some carrot and celery sticks and some pretzels!

Check out Where to Find Us on the H. K. Anderson site. Also, take a look at their Facebook page: HK Anderson Pretzels where they host frequent giveaways.

I love pumpkin seeds for a crunchy healthy snack...but also love red peppers dipped in hummus...that is my absulote's better than using tortilla chips!

I'm a sucker for Baked Ruffles. Yum!

can't get enough of wheat thins...reduced fat with veggie cream cheese or their new harvest cheddar flavor...yum!

Sounds like a great alternative to potato chips!


So many favorite crunchy snacks to choose from. I have to say though that our families all time favorite is pita chips and garlic hummus

Jolly Time popcorn is my favorite snack especially in the evenings when watching TV!

I am loving Popchips lately - there are so many different flavors and that are a great alternative to fried potato chips!

I love the cheddar flavored Baked Kettle Chips! I don't buy them very often because I will eat the whole bag in one sitting!

I got a new kind of crisp bread - Its RyVita and it has PUmpkin Seeds and Oats. I was going to snack on that with a baby bel cheese from the @LaughingCow.

My favorite crunchy snack is air popped popcorn with a little butter and salt.

OR for a nice portable snack...a crisp juicy apple:)

My fave crunchy snack is almonds.

I used to hate walnuts, but they are definately my crunchy snack of choice this fall!

I have just discovered that if you cut a bell pepper into strips and toss it in the dehydrator, it makes the most amazing crunchy sticks--perfect snacky crunch! You don't have to do anything to them, but you could salt them or serve them with a dip if you like.

I have also recently discovered that collard greens can be dehydrated for a very cool snack a la Kale Chips. Just put the trimmed leaves on the dehydrator, spray briefly with your oil of choice, and sprinkle salt (the oil is to make the salt stick better). Then dehydrate until crispy. They're amazing! And you can do them with other leaves as well--baby mustard greens make a spicy chip that tastes like wasabi.

We're members of a CSA, so we get large quantities of veggies sometimes, and dehydrating is an awesome way to preserve them without taking up too much space. And when they turn into snack food it's even better. :)

I like crisp bread with some kind of spread... like hummus or peanut butter!

I adore Popchips, BBQ flavor.

What is the salt content since they sound so good?

My favorite crunchy snack is Barbara's Puffins cereal. I also really enjoy Garden of Eden Baked blue corn chips with salsa or hummus.

@Sue - pretzels are salty snacks so they do have a high salt content - for example the peanut butter pretzels have 330 mg per serving - AKA 14% of your daily value of sodium for 10 nuggets


Right now my favorite is Blue Diamond Nut Thins with any dip like hummus, guacamole, or salsa. They are so good and the stats aren't bad, although I refuse to look at the sodium, I prefer denial. :o)
