Auntie Anne's Pretzels Giveaway

When I take the kids to the mall, we smell it right away.

That smell of butter wafts through the indoor air, as well as the bread-like baking odor.  And it's a little sweet, too.

As we get closer my kids see the stand.

"Mom, can we get Auntie Anne's pretzels?"

And, of course, I cave.  Because I love them, too!

And here's some good news - just for the holidays, Auntie Anne's is offering their Pretzel Nuggets Snowballs! These delicious nuggets are made by adding powdered sugar to their original nuggets to create the perfect salty and sweet combination.

Auntie Anne's sent me a free coupon for Snowballs, so that I could review them here at Frugal Follies.  So, golly gee, I just had to go get some and try them.  What a tough life I live, don't you think?

The cup I received had 18 hot pretzel nuggets in a 9-ounce plastic cup, covered in butter and powdered sugar.  One bite and - mmmm! - they were delicious. Maybe just a little on the too-sweet side.  But my kids would say that there's no such thing as too sweet.  I was tempted to eat them all right there, but I resisted.

When I got home, I took them out of the cup.  I have to say, the ones at the bottom weren't quite as beautiful as the ones on top - they were packed in.  But, on the good side, I guess that means that I got more in the cup!

This would be a great snack to have while finishing up your holiday shopping.  (You mean you haven't finished yet?)  Just be sure to get lots of napkins to wipe up the remains of the the sugary, buttery topping - or to wipe your hands after you've licked the topping off your fingers!

Would you like to try Auntie Anne's Snowballs?  You probably already know the locations in your area, but if not, check here.

Or would you like to try them for free?

The jalapeno or the garlic with some cheese sounds good but the cinnamon and sugar with some frosting would be good for a dessert. Thank you for the giveaway.
