When you’re relaxing at home, maybe watching your favorite show on TV, what snacks, if any, do you normally reach for? One of my “go-to” snacks is pretzels*. Lately, I’ve been hooked on sourdough pretzel nuggets!

Some of the best things about this classic snack food is that they’re convenient and easy to find in many different types of stores; from large mass merchandise stores to small convenience stores. They’re great to pack in a lunchbox or backpack, take on a road trip, serve at a party, and so on!
