What kind of pretzels are used in this recipe?
Grab the thin pretzels at your grocery store. Rold Gold and Utz brands both carry thin pretzels, I’m able to find them in Walmart.

Yes! It needs 2 hours to chill anyway, overnight would be even better. This is a great recipe to make up the day before an event!
Do the pretzels stay crunchy?
Nope! That’s the beauty of this recipe – the pretzels need time to soak up all the sweet flavors of the other ingredients. You’re left with a chunky salad that’s salty and sweet.
