While a national food holiday is a reason to eat and eat some more, many food brands add to the excitement by offering some special food deals. On National Pretzel Day, April 26, it is time to get twisted and enjoy a pretzel or two.

From Philadelphia, the U.S. pretzel capital, to the snack aisle, there are plenty of pretzel options to enjoy. While people can debate rods versus twists or have definite feelings on mustard versus beer cheese, the reality is that pretzels are one of the more commonly liked foods.

One of the most popular brands is SUPERPRETZEL. While the brand has produced over 32 million pretzels for Wawa, that fact is just a portion of the brand’s sales. With so many options under its umbrella, the food brand has probably been enjoyed by almost everyone.

According to Dan Fachner, President & CEO at J&J Snack Foods, “As a leader in the soft pretzel industry, we’re proud to be a part of this celebration and offer our loyal fans endless ways to enjoy the soft, salty snack. Whether you prefer your pretzels with cheese, mustard, chocolate, or plain, SUPERPRETZEL offers a wide variety to satisfy any craving.”

On April 26, SUPERPRETZEL will be offering various Instacart promotions. Check with the app for options.

In addition, guests who add a drink to their order can get a bonus. A special surprise offer will be added to their account.

Flipz is celebrating National Pretzel Day with a new flavor offering. The STUFF’D Double Peanut Butter is a 7/11 exclusive. The bite-sized pretzel nuggets are filled with that creamy peanut butter and the whole offering is covered in a peanut butter flavored coating. It is a pretzel and peanut butter lover’s dream come true.

Also, when that pretzel craving hits, Flipz is making it easier to satisfy. From April 26 through May 9, Flipz is offering free Flipz when ordering via Instacart. Check the app for complete details.

Lastly, Philly Pretzel Factory stores and select Walmart locations will be offering one free pretzel on April 26. As Dan DiZio, CEO and Co-Founder of Philly Pretzel Factory said, “National Pretzel Day is one of our favorite days of the year because we get to celebrate the food we love, and say thank you to our loyal customers. As a company that has been dedicated to making fresh and high-quality snacks for 25 years, we couldn’t have made it this far without their support.” It sounds like a great reason to go enjoy a pretzel.

Lastly, Pretzelmaker is offering free small Pretzel Bites for the food holiday. The offer is available at participating locations, in store only.
