Pretzel Bites are miniature versions of traditional soft pretzels, offering a chewy, salty snack that pairs well with an array of dips and toppings. These little nuggets of goodness maintain the classic pretzel taste and texture but in a bite-sized form, making them perfect for snacking, serving at parties, or just as a side dish for a casual weeknight dinner.
Preparing Pretzel Bites at home gives you the flexibility to control their size and saltiness. You can also experiment with flavors, adding herbs, spices, or cheese to the dough. Add them to your snack collection and enjoy their pleasingly dense yet fluffy texture on the go.

Expiration & Storage Tips
When does Pretzel Bites expire?
Unopened, pretzel bites can typically last for about 1-2 weeks past the printed date on the package when stored at room temperature. Once the package is opened, you should consume them within 1 week to retain their freshness. If you've opted to freeze them, which can be a great way to store this snack for longer periods, they can last up to 6 months!
How do you tell if Pretzel Bites is bad?
If your pretzel bites have been going downhill, you'll notice it. They could begin to smell stale or off, their color may start to change, and they may feel overly hard or even soggy. The most obvious sign would be the presence of mold - if you see this, definitely do not eat them!
Tips for storing Pretzel Bites to extend shelf life
• Always store your pretzel bites in a cool, dry place. Heat and moisture can introduce mold and speed up the staling process.
• After opening, consider storing them in an airtight container to maintain their freshness longer.
• If you don't think you'll get through the whole bag quickly, try freezing them! Just separate into portion sizes, place in freezer-safe bags or containers, and pop into the freezer.
• To defrost, just take them out a few hours before you plan to eat them and let them come to room temperature. Or, for a warm treat, you can heat them gently in the oven.
