Get your crunch on with Pretzel Crisps!

My Dear Friends,

I'm addicted to pretzels.  They're so versatile and can be flavored so many ways.  They're as perfect with sweets like chocolate or cinnamon as they are with savory flavors like garlic or a hot spice.  

The fantastic people at Pretzel Crisps® sent me a few bags of their pretzels to try.  Now, Pretzel Crisps® aren't ordinary pretzels.  They're flat, like chips.  
The flavors can be put into three categories:

Deli Style, Modern Classics & Holiday Indulgents

Deli Style features the following flavors:

Original - Try with salsa, hummus, chili, cheese, peanut butter and all your favorite dips, or for an off-beat sweet treat, dip ‘em in chocolate, ice cream or yogurt. The “just right” baked flavor is also a healthy crunch all by itself.

Everything - Sprinkled generously with poppy seeds, sesame seeds, onions and garlic with just a pinch of salt, more than lives up to its name. Delicious with nearly every spread, they’re diversely dippable, and just as satisfying by the handful.

Garlic Parmesan - A zingy twist on an old favorite, with great gourmet taste from naturally wholesome ingredients. The best part of the pretzel – that satisfying flavor and crunch – is crispy thin and baked with a light, savory garlic flavor for big flavor in a light, crispy snack.
Enjoy them straight from the bag, or dip your crisp into a hummus or creamy cheese dip.
(These are my absolute favorite!)

Sesame - Lightly toasted to bring out the sesame seed’s essential oils, adding a healthy kick to the delicious crunch. Sesame seeds are naturally rich in iron, magnesium, manganese, copper, calcium, vitamin B1, E and a good source of lignans (phytoestrogens with antioxidant and anti-cancer properties).

Buffalo Wing - What a crowd pleaser! Everyone loves the spicy flavor sprinkled right on top of each crisp. Try Buffalo Wing with ranch dip, blue cheese dressing, cheddar or cream cheese spreads, and as a zesty partner for celery sticks.



Modern Classics features the following flavors:

Classic - Perfectly salted, they're a modern twist on an old favorite. They’re the best part of the pretzel – all the flavor and crunch you love – but lighter, crispier and more versatile than ever before.

Supreme - Sprinkled with a crafted blend of garlic, onion, and poppy, caraway and sesame seeds, each light, crispy batch delivers all the flavor you’d expect from a great snack.

Tuscan Three Cheese - Sprinkled with all natural romano, asiago and parmesan cheese flavors. The result? A light, crispy, versatile snack that’s quite possibly the most sumptuous pretzel you’ve ever tasted.

Cinnamon Toast - Sprinkled with just the right amount of imported cinnamon and cane sugar, the final results are equally sweet and savory.


Holiday Indulgent features the following flavors:
Dark Chocolate & Peppermint - We’ve dipped our all natural, thin and irresistibly crunchy Pretzel Crisps® in a rich, velvety dark chocolate coating and then sprinkled each one with a delicate burst of refreshing peppermint candy pieces. The perfect combination of sweet indulgence and salty crunch!

White Chocolate & Peppermint - Dipped in a rich, creamy, white chocolate flavored coating and then sprinkled each one with a delicate burst of refreshing peppermint candy pieces. 




One feature I really enjoy on the Pretzel Crisps® website is the "Pretzel Pairings" - a page that features interesting & tasty things to try on your Pretzel Crisps®.  They also offer eight different Dip Recipes that compliment your Pretzel Crisps®.

I was most impressed by co-creator Emily Mitchell's letter to potential buyers.  Here is the letter, verbatim, from the website:
Pretzel Crisps®: Excellent Food for Healthy Eating
As a Registered Dietitian and Certified Diabetes Educator, I am always looking for great portable snack ideas for my clients to help them maintain or achieve a healthy lifestyle. Pretzels Crisps® are a great alternative to potato chips and other snack foods. They contain 110 calories per serving and no fat (10-11 crisps) compared with 150 calories and 10 gram of fat (1 g saturated) per one ounce serving for potato chips.
The American Dietetic Association and American Heart Association recommends that the public should not consume trans fat and keep saturated fat consumption to a minimum. The American Heart Association recommends that individuals attain five to nine serving of fruits and vegetables daily, as well. Studies show that trans fat and saturated fat contribute to heart disease and raising bad cholesterol levels. Unfortunately, the majority of my clients, as well as most Americans, find it difficult to reduce their calorie and fat intake without sacrificing taste. Pretzel Crisps® are a great option for my clients to maintain a heart healthy, low calorie diet.
For those with special medical needs like diabetes and/or high cholesterol, Pretzels Crisps® does not contain trans or saturated fats and have only 21-23 grams of carbohydrate per serving (1 ½ carbohydrate exchanges). People with diabetes can easily fit Pretzel Crisps® in carbohydrate meal plan as a snack or with a meals not raise blood glucose levels dramatically. They also do not contain any saturated and trans fat so they a great choice for those following a diet to reduce their cholesterol and manage their heart health.
Pretzel Crisps® easily fit in car glove compartments, lockers, backpacks, purses and desk drawers, making them great for travel or the “on the go” busy professional. These fat free and low calorie treats never sacrifice taste and definitely satisfy that “salt craving” we all house. Pretzel Crisps® come in a variety of different flavors so you never get bored. You can also add these crunchy and versatile snacks to your favorite yogurt, as a salad topper, or create something new on your own. Have fun with them. I know I do.

Rudi's Organic/Gluten Free Bakery

My Dear Friends,

Rudi’s Organic Bakery and 
Rudi’s gluten-free bakery named AMOng the Best Kid 
Food by parents in an online poll
Magazine’s Parent Advisory Board members and Facebook fans voted Rudi’s as having some of
the best natural and organic foods for kids

Boulder, Colo. – April 4, 2011
In a recent online poll determining top foods for kids from KIWI, a magazine for parents that promotes healthy family living, Rudi's Organic Bakery tied for first place in the sliced bread category, and Rudi’s Gluten-Free Bakery was named one of four ‘additional winners’ in the gluten-free bread category. In order to select the winners of the 2011 KIWI Awards for Best Kid Food, the magazine surveyed more than 1,000 members of its Parent Advisory Board and Facebook fan base in an online poll. The honors, and full listing of additional winners, can be found in the April/May 2011 issue of the magazine on newsstands now.

“We were honored to learn that parents recognize both Rudi’s Organic and Rudi’s Gluten-Free breads as tasty and nutritious staples the whole family can enjoy,” said Doug Radi, vice president of marketing for Rudi’s Organic Bakery. “We bake our breads with purpose, and were thrilled to learn that KIWI readers have recognized our efforts to bake on the bright side, using only the highest quality ingredients moms can feel good about.”

According to Kiwi’s April/May issue, the organic and natural picks in all of the award categories are ones kids love and parents can feel good about.

KIWI readers have strong opinions about the best natural and organic foods for their families. So when more than 1,000 of them weighed in on their favorite foods, we knew we had some real winners,” said Sarah Smith, editorial director for KIWI. “Rudi’s, with two wins, should be very proud to be a go-to brand for such discerning moms and dads.”

Rudi’s Organic Bakery was founded 35 years ago on the idea that there is a better, brighter way to make bread, leading the company to become a pioneer in the bread industry. Rudi’s Organic bakes bread without the use of artificial chemicals or preservatives, and nearly 20 years ago started using organic ingredients in its breads and baked goods. Today, some of Rudi’s Organic Bakery’s most popular breads for kids include:

·         Honey Sweet Whole Wheat Sandwich Bread (MSRP - $4.39) – A drop of golden honey goodness turns whole wheat into a treat in this sandwich bread. The family favorite is sure to please as the perfect top and bottom to any sandwich.
·         Organic Potato Slider Buns (MSRP - $4.39) – One of the newest additions to the Rudi’s Organic family, the organic potato flour gives these slider buns a soft, delicious taste that’s perfect for summer grilling.
·         Rudi’s Organic Bakery 100% Whole Wheat Sandwich Bread (MSRP - $4.39) –The whole wheat flour and a hint of molasses found in this recipe is an old world tradition that is sure to become a family favorite.
·         Plain Bagels (MSRP - $3.99) – A classic bagel, done with organically with wheat and white whole wheat flours.  A slightly smaller bagel at 140 calories, it’s a perfect size for kids and moms alike.
·         Whole Grain Wheat English Muffins (MSRP – $3.99) – These classic, hearty, organic and wholesome English muffins have a lovable sweet, nutty taste.

Rudi’s Organic Bakery launched Rudi’s Gluten-Free Bakery in 2010 with three gluten-free sandwich bread varieties – Original, Multigrain and Cinnamon Raisin – with the goal of providing families with dietary restrictions convenient, healthy breads that taste, look and feel like the real thing.  This spring, Rudi’s Gluten-Free is excited to announce families have even more options for gluten-free products that don’t leave you feeling like you have to give something up to go gluten-free. The newest additions to the Rudi’s Gluten-Free Family include:

·         Gluten-Free Multigrain Hamburger Buns (MSRP - $4.49) – This soft textured bun made with wholesome, all-natural ingredients and a hint of molasses and honey is the perfect complement to a hamburger or veggie burger.
·         Gluten-Free Multigrain Hot Dog Rolls (MSRP - $4.49) – A tasty combination of flaxseed, sunflower seeds and cornmeal provides a flavor the whole family will love and a texture that can withstand a loaded up chili dog just as well as a plain hot dog.  
·         Original Pizza Crusts (MSRP - $4.49) – Made with all natural ingredients you can pronounce, these gluten-free pizza crusts have a thin, crispy crust that’s  perfect for that family pizza  night.

34° Crispbread - A Most Clever Cracker!

My Dear Friends,

If you've read my other blog, {itsy.bitsy.tiffy}, you know that I am on a quest to get fit.  I've been researching different and interesting foods online, so I can break the monotony of eating the same old 'diet foods'.  One thing I've realized is that if I limit myself to only eating diet foods, fruits & veggies...I crack.  I cheat.  Thus began the search for healthy, yet fun, foods to add to my snack repertoire.


I discovered 34° Crispbread while searching online.  I was intrigued.  I really liked their story.  The founder, Craig Lieberman, came up with the name of his company because he discovered his passion for food & wine in Sydney, Australia, which happens to be exactly 34° latitude!

Using a handful of natural ingredients, they carefully bake the wafer-thin crackers until they are subtly toasty and overtly tasty.  34° Crispbread makes six varieties: Natural, Sesame, Cracked Pepper, Rosemary, Lemon Zest and Whole Grain.  All the Nutrition Facts are clearly outlined on their website. 

Allow me to break down the serving size & calorie ratio:

Natural - 19 crackers = 130 calories
Sesame - 19 crackers = 140 calories
Cracked Pepper - 19 crackers = 120 calories
Rosemary - 19 crackers = 130 calories
Whole Grain - 18 crackers = 70 calories
Lemon Zest - 18 crackers = 120 calories

WOW!  I'm totally impressed.  You can have a filling snack with so little calories! 


The bakery is gold certified and regularly audited by Silliker, the leading internationally accredited food testing and consulting network.  They are also HAACP-certified (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

34° Crispbread has been featured in various print and screen articles; Real Simple Magazine, Hungry-Girl.com, The New York Times & Weight Watchers...just to name a few.

Entertaining is easy and simple with 34° Crispbread.  They really thought of everything.  There is a special Entertaining section of their website which details the perfect cheese pairings to compliment each type of cracker.


There are various ways you can get your hands on 34° Crispbread!  You can use the handy Store Locator or buy them on Amazon!

The products in this keepsake box (a perfect gift) will keep her glowing - down the aisle, in pictures, on the dance floor and when the real party starts. Bridesmaids will love it too!
