There are few snacks as versatile as the humble pretzel. They’re good on their own, but also delicious as a dip vehicle, broken up on top of ice cream, in trail mix, mixed into chocolate bars and bark, as a breading for chicken and fish—you get the idea. But just when we thought they couldn’t get any better, there comes a pretzel innovation so genius we wish we’d thought of it.

Introducing Rold Gold® Waffles, made specifically with dipping in mind. That’s because the lattice shape structurally optimizes the pretzel for dipping to create more surface area for your hummus, brownie batter, queso, guac, etc. to hold onto.

Their salted taste also means they go excellent with nearly every pairing—both savory and sweet. And their easy-to-grip shape means they act like a scoop for whatever dips are on hand at your next get-together. The possibilities are endless, so “Be a Rold Gold® Dipper” and try the new Rold Gold® Waffles with some of our favorite dip suggestions below.
