AUNTIE ANNE'S!!


Auntie Anne's sent me their At-Home Baking Kit! This is really nice! Here is a picture...




Here is a little bit about Auntie Anne's :
" Anne and Jonas Beiler didn’t set out to create pretzel perfection when they purchased a Pennsylvania farmer’s market stand in 1988. Instead, they hoped to provide free counseling services to families and couples in their community, and purchased the stand to provide the income needed for their vision. After some experimentation and a few mishaps, Anne and Jonas created a pretzel that customers quickly dubbed “better than the best you’ve ever tasted,” which is the same pretzel we all know and love today.

Twenty-two years later, customers are enjoying Auntie Anne’s Pretzel products, dipping sauces, and signature beverages in more than 1,100 locations in 44 states and more than 22 countries, with additional franchises for sale. The company stands apart from its competitors due to its unwavering commitment to extending the brand, successful growth, and providing continued value for all stakeholders. Auntie Anne’s has built its brand on the foundations of the people-focused philosophies established by its founder, quality products, exceptional customer service, attractive and efficient stores, and the fun activity of pretzel making. Today, Auntie Anne’s rolls more than 500,000 pretzels every two days, which is enough to feed a pretzel to every person living in Lancaster County, Pa. (home to Auntie Anne’s, Inc.).

While an Auntie Anne’s Pretzel is shaped like a pretzel and called a pretzel, it is most definitely not just a pretzel. The fresh, sweet taste coupled with a light, bread-like texture offers individuals a “little reward.” Auntie Anne’s “little rewards” come in a variety of flavors. The core product lineup includes Original, Cinnamon Sugar, Almond, Pepperoni, Sour Cream and Onion, Garlic Pretzels, along with Stix and the Pretzel Dog. Auntie Anne’s most popular pretzel flavors are also available as bite-size pretzel pieces called, Pretzel Nuggets. To complement pretzel selections, the brand’s famous lemonade can be enjoyed in its signature version or as Lemonade Mixers in five bold fruity flavors.

Whether consumers are shopping, traveling, or picking up a snack in between college classes, Auntie Anne’s portable products come with a “Pretzel Perfect Guarantee” which simply states, “We guarantee you’ll love your pretzel or we’ll replace it with one that you do.”

In addition to its franchising business, Auntie Anne’s is also a distributor of gourmet fundraising products. By providing fundraising ideas for schools and non-profits, community groups can raise money for their organization by working with one of the more than 200 fundraising distributors throughout the country to sell a variety of baking kits and frozen pretzel products.

Auntie Anne’s also has a presence in the retail arena with its At-Home Baking Kit. Available at specialty retailers, regional grocery stores, and a club store, the kit provides an opportunity for consumers to enjoy the fresh baked goodness of Auntie Anne’s products in the comforts of their own kitchens. The easy-to-prepare kit comes with step-by-step instructions and a special Auntie Anne’s versatile dough mix to make a variety of recipes including pretzel products, pizzas, gourmet breads, side dishes, and desserts."
