Crackin’ good: why we went to England to authenticate our new pub pretzels
Our new Pub Style Pretzel is the snacking world’s first thin, aged sourdough pretzel. But does it have what it takes to hold its own as a pub snack and truly earn its “pub pretzel” name?
To answer that question, Ed Herr packed his bags — and more than 400 bags of Herr’s Pub Pretzels — and departed from Nottingham, PA, for some of the world’s greatest pubs in Nottingham, England.
Over the next few months, here on this website and on Herr’s Facebook and Twitter pages, we’ll provide highlights from our trip to the UK — a trip that included stops at iconic watering holes with names like The Old Dog & Partridge and Ye Olde Salutation Inn.
While we were there, we met two retired miners, a trio of rabid football fans (that’s soccer to those of us in the U.S. of A.) and two crafty British women who could turn pretzels into a seriously addictive pub game. We got a chilling tour of the haunted caves under one of England’s oldest pubs. We learned words and phrases that we’d never heard before (but are itching to use again soon).
We’ll tell those stories — and many more, starting with the video below — all while giving away some pretty sweet (or, should we say, salty?) prizes.
That’s right, salty prizes.
Over on our Facebook and Twitter pages, we’ll be giving away scores of Pub Style Pretzel prize packs and a grand prize of a year’s supply of Pub Style Pretzels. So grab your mates, and lace up your trainers, because the next few months are going to be crackin’ good!
