Soft pretzel fries are now a thing

Apparently there's been a big rise in soft pretzels on restaurant menus

1y ago

Happy Monday, we have three words for you: Soft. Pretzel. Fries.

Need we say more? Probably not, but we will.

Now there’s a snack that’s good for any time of day (or night, we’re not judging): soft pretzel fries.

What did we even do before these beauties existed?

They’re the latest taste sensation from J&J Snack Foods Corp, which claims they’re the country’s number one soft pretzel brand (we’ll be the judge of that thank you very much).

According to the company: " Tired of the same old French fries on the menu? Soft pretzel fries are the perfect way to mix it up and can be enjoyed as a side or delicious appetizer dipped in your favorite sauces. And as an added bonus, it's vegan and baked, not fried! "

Ok, first of all - no one ever gets tired of seeing French fries on a menu. It’s a scientific fact. But we are so down for having these delicious looking pretzel fries *in addition* to our regular potato-heavy diet.

Just think of the sauce combos you could have! Ketchup… ranch… little French mustard.

According to the purveyors of this fine product, there has been a 25% increase in soft pretzels served on menus as a side dish since 2017. And when it comes to apps, there has been an 8% rise across the top 1,500 restaurants and leading convenience stores.

Hey, you can’t fault J&J Snack Foods Corp for their commitment to pretzel-specific stats.

What dips would go best with these soft pretzel beauties?

    • These are exactly the condiments that these were served with at the Pennsylvania Farm Show for years. Serving them sliced rather than tied up saved the kitchens prep time and of course the taste was still fantastic.
