(BPT) - For pretzel lovers everywhere, this Friday is time for a huge celebration ... it’s officially National Pretzel Day! To help get you in the spirit and give you the tools you need to host the ultimate celebration, Snack Factory Pretzel Crisps is here to break down a how-to guide for the ultimate Pretzel Crisps Bar.
Here are the top four tips from Campbell’s Chef Kaylee Gill:
Tip 1: Don’t Be Afraid to Experiment
Experimenting with flavors can lead to exciting new concoctions and unlock unexpected taste profiles. This is the perfect moment to rethink your pretzel. Think outside the box, grab new flavors of Pretzel Crisps you haven’t tried before, and pair them with dips and toppings you might not always put together — remember, opposites attract.
If you find yourself stuck, think of some of your favorite foods or flavor combinations and use them as inspiration. Are you a fan of bagels and cream cheese? Try out Everything Pretzel Crisps paired with cream cheese and lox, and garnish with pickled red onions and dill for added flavor.
Tip 2: Play With Your Display
When it comes to hosting, don’t forget the importance of presentation! A great way to drum up excitement with your guests and encourage them to try out different offerings is to focus on how you’re displaying the tasty treats. Try out a high-low setup using cake stands or elevated plates to show off the bites, and incorporate a variety of looks with your everyday platters and serving ware for added flare.
A fun way to switch things up? Try out snacks that are versatile — stackable and snackable.
Tip 3: Go For Variety
Have a little fun with taste buds, and give your guests something to talk about! A great rule of thumb is to provide a range of salty and sweet options, and a variety of different base flavors.
To kick things off, you can pair everything from Original Pretzel Crisps and beet hummus to Buffalo Wing Pretzel Crisps and buttermilk ranch. And for just the right amount of sweet indulgence, try the brand new Milk Chocolate & Caramel Drizzlers with a creme fraiche or the Dark Chocolate Drizzlers with an orange-almond butter.
With all these flavors on your table, there’s always a fun new flavor profile to explore.
Tip 4: A Good Base is Key
No matter what dips and toppings you try out, don’t forget that the foundation is key. Make sure your pairings have a crowd-pleasing base. To set your display up for success, lay out an assortment of fan-favorite Pretzel Crisps and have them easily accessible throughout — from pre-spreading some for ease and inspiration, to stacking them right at your guests’ fingertips.
Make a splash on National Pretzel Day with these go-to tips, and most importantly, have fun!
