The pretzel is a metaphor for life: it's full of twists and turns and ends where it begins, but a bit of chocolate makes it infinitely better. Today’s Groupon celebrates chocolate’s soothing properties. For $10, you get $20 worth of gourmet pretzels and pretzel treats at The Ultimate Pretzel Company in Brighton.
When Lynn Kughn founded The Ultimate Pretzel Company 13 years ago, it was a kitchen-based operation that hand-dipped pretzel rods in caramel, rice krispies, and chocolate from a secret recipe. Since then, The Ultimate Pretzel Company has expanded into a thriving online operation that dishes out delectable treats to sugar-craving patrons and donates a portion of its proceeds to the Multiple Sclerosis Society. Like a beaker-toting scientist obsessed with animating chocolate-pretzel hybrids, Lynn has developed several treats and special chocolate recipes in addition to her signature pretzel sticks.
Try a few round peanut-butter pretzel bites ($3.50 per 2 oz. package); a caramel-dipped festiva gourmet rod rolled in roasted walnuts, raisins, coconut, and dried cherries ($2); or the bite-sized chocolate chomps of tots and their coffee-infused café counterparts (4 oz. for $4.25, 8 oz. for $7.50). For a few additional dollars with your Groupon, gift packages such as The Explorer provide a varied sampling of 4-oz. packages such as tots, cafés, twigs, mini twists, and mini twists with toffee ($25.50). Most treats come in different sizes and can be paired with gourmet or white chocolate to produce personalized pretzel prezzies for particularly particular people.
Unlike tasting Aunt Gladys’s questionable tofu-based dessert calzones, sampling a complex fusion of flavors doesn’t have to be a burdensome affair. Stock up on gourmet snacks guilt-free with today's charitably twisted deal to The Ultimate Pretzel Company.
