Best Christmas Present EVER!

So when Jackie and I took our awesome road trip from Philly to Utah I was given the assignment of getting the first of many rounds of snacks. At a random gas station in Jersey I found these....aka the best pretzels ever and object of my obsession ever since. We're talking anytime I went into a random gas station, grocery store, I would do a quick scan on the snack aisle just in case they had somehow by some miracle landed on the shelf.

Several months ago I went so far as to visit the Frito Lay web site to do some serious research on where I could get these babies. Turned out there were none within a 50 mile radius of my parents house.

No go forward several months and get Jackie on the case. She called the manufacturer, found out they were only sold east of the Mississippi river. Nope that didn't stop her, then she found a store in Jersey that sold them, then she called the store and had them set aside 10 bags! They were then picked up by her friend and mailed to Jackie who then wrapped the case of pretzels and gave them to me last night for Christmas!!!!!! Seriously! BEST GIFT EVER! To anyone who was planning on getting me something for Christmas, consider your gift topped.....but I will still accept them :)

I remember you telling me about these pretzels, how nice of Jackie to get them for you!

This reminds me of when you shipped me some fizzy piglets from England. That was seriously the best birthday present ever.

It was actually a really fun goal I set out on... which lead to some awesome conversations with a few lovely ladies from corporate, and even a cordial grocer named Chris. Glad you like 'em. Now time to scheme for next year...
