“Pretzel Dog” on the Menu for Fall 2011
“Pretzel dogs” will soon be available in local grocery stores after surviving a taste-test by Millersville University students. Kunzler Fine Meat Products launched the pretzel dog, a hot dog wrapped in fresh pretzel dough this spring at Millersville University. Dining Services plans to have them available for purchase at campus retail locations in fall 2011.
“The pretzel dog is a Kunzler all-beef premium deli frank surrounded by crispy pretzel dough,” says Sarah Wilson, Kunzler’s senior foodservice sales representative. “They are precooked, only needing to be reheated and are the perfect hand-held snack.”
Kunzler held a test-run of the product at Millersville to see the students’ response. A table was set up in the Anchor with free samples of the pretzel dog. Kunzler representatives brought 1,000 pretzel dogs, cut in half for the sampling. The product was well received by students and dining services felt it would be a great addition to the growing menus on campus.
Kunzler will have retail packages of the pretzel dog available in local grocery stores by the beginning of July 2011.
