March 23, 2015 // Franchising.com // ATLANTA - Move over mozzarella sticks! Pretzelmaker® has taken its best-selling Pretzel Bites and stuffed them with mozzarella cheese. The national pretzel bakery, known for being a leader in product innovation, created Mozzarella Stuffed Bites in response to customer feedback and flavor favorites. The delightfully cheesy Stuffed Bites will be available at all Pretzelmaker stores across the country on Wednesday, April 8.
Mozzarella Stuffed Bites are portable for on the go snacking and pair perfectly with marinara dipping sauce to compliment the flavor. The mouthwatering combination of buttery-soft Pretzel Bites and fresh creamy mozzarella cheese was extremely well received in the product testing phase. Mozzarella Stuffed Bites are being offered in two serving sizes, an eight count cup of bites, or a 16 count cup of bites.
"One element that sets Pretzelmaker apart from the competition is our ability to create, comprehensively test, and introduce superior products that become not only admired, but replicated in the industry," said David Smith, Vice President of Pretzelmaker. "We've been testing cheese Stuffed Bites since early 2013 and know we have them perfected. We're confident we have another hit pretzel product to add to our innovation hall of fame right up there with Pretzel Bites and Pretzel Dogs."
