Dot’s Homestyle Pretzels

By Lynda Wheatley | May 25, 2019

Doesn’t matter if you’ve got your own boat, a kayak, or a plastic raft. If you’re going for a float, salty snacks are required. And we swear on summer you can do no better than Dot’s Homestyle Pretzels. Some magical blend of butter and tongue-tickling spices that are far more zingy than hot (Dried garlic? Dried Onion? MSG? Eye of newt? We don’t actually care; they’re that good.), they’re both appealing to and addictive for all ages. And on the off chance you don’t plow through an entire one-pound bag in an afternoon, they come packaged in a sturdy pouch with a Ziplock-like, meaning you can keep it watertight and far more crush-proof than that bag of potato chip crumbs you usually carry. You order them by the case on Amazon, find them at most Ace Hardware stores, but we found ours at Buntings Cedar Market ($5.49 for a 1-pound bag), 9054 S. Kasson St., in Cedar. (231) 228-7460, www.buntingscedarmarket.com
