Addictively Delicious Cajun Pretzels {& Tastebuds Cajun Popcorn}

Cajun Pretzels ~ mini pretzel twists seasoned with a mixture of Old Bay, Ranch seasoning, and cayenne pepper.  They're addictively delicious!

We're only ten days away from my favorite sporting event!  Yes, we're only ten days away from the Superbowl!! ... I love the Superbowl.  And I actually love to watch the game, not just the commercials. Though I do enjoy the commercials, too.  Since my team, the Carolina Panthers, didn't make it to the big game, I'll be routing for ...

... the Broncos!

You know, that Peyton Manning is kind of a cutie.  So if I can't route for my 'home' team, I'll throw my vote behind a team with a cutie quarterback.  Sounds like a good way to pick the team to route for, don't you think?

So, who will you be routing for to win the big game?

Well, no matter who you route for, I've got the perfect Superbowl snack for you ~ these addictively delicious Cajun Pretzels, seasoned with a super yummy combination of Old Bay seasoning, Ranch seasoning, and cayenne pepper.

These tiny pretzels pack a big flavor punch!  With a kick, too ... spicy, but not too spicy.  Juuuuuust right, in my book.

Want to know another snack that's just perfect for the Superbowl?

Cajun popcorn from my fabulous friends at Tastebuds Popcorn!  I just love their fabulous flavors, and love sharing them with you.  Like their Dill Pickle Popcorn I shared last week.  Can you believe they have over 200 flavors of popcorn?  That's a whole lotta popcorn.

And like these cajun pretzels, Tastebuds Cajun popcorn is spicy-but-not-too-spicy, too ... with just the right amount of kick.  

Perfect for enjoying with a beer while watching the big game.


Did someone mention beer?  

Oh, yes, that would be me, wouldn't it?

Well, guess what?  You don't have to drink your beer to enjoy its wonderful flavor!  Nope, you can eat it! ... In POPCORN form.

That's right.  The brilliantly creative folks at Tastebuds Popcorn created beer flavored popcorn.  So you can have your beer and eat it, too.  Ha!

Pop on over and visit Tastebuds Popcorn today to order your Superbowl {or any day} popcorn snacks.  With over 200 flavors to choose from, you're sure to find a few you'll love!

Hmmmm ... so which to choose for my Superbowl viewing, Cajun Pretzels or Tastebuds Cajun Popcorn??  I might just have to have a little of each.

    1. We love Old Bay, too, Maria. And it's just fabulous on these pretzels! Thank you so much for stopping by!

    The only "problem" is that I'd probably won't be able to stop eating them
