Launched in October 2022, Zapp’s Sinfully Seasoned Pretzel Stix marked the first time the fast-growing snack brand ventured beyond potato chips, bringing its bold, Cajun-inspired flavors to the pretzel category.

When we created Zapp’s Sinfully-Seasoned Voodoo Pretzel Stix, we knew our loyal Zapp’s fans and pretzel consumers who love big, bold, and loud flavors would love these products,” said Utz Brands Senior Vice President of Marketing Stacey Schultz. “To also be recognized by Progressive Grocer for our innovation, differentiation, and performance for our first new product category outside of our best-selling potato chips is unparalleled and motivates our team to innovate further to bring the best-tasting products to market.

This marks the third award win this year for Zapp’s Sinfully-Seasoned Voodoo Pretzel Stix after being named a winner in PEOPLE’s 2023 Food Awards most recently in June and SELF Magazine’s 2023 Pantry Awards in February.

Zapp's Sinfully-Seasoned Pretzel Stix are available online and at leading retailers across the U.S. and can be located using Zapp’s Sinfully-Seasoned Pretzel Stix Finder.
