Funnybones Foodservice is simply delighted to bring you the Pretzel to end all Pretzels. The tastiest, chewiest, most garlicy Pretzel you could wish for.
Why is Funnybones with all its Caribbean, Mexican, and American connections, featuring a German-style Pretzel? The answer is simple. America loves a Pretzel. In 2021 the Pretzel market reached a value of US$ 1.65 billion, and it is predicted to rise again this year.
We believe the time is right for the UK to take to Pretzels with the same enthusiasm. After all, what the Americans love often goes down a storm here too.
Our Pretzel is Swabian style from South Western Germany, and it is filled with garlic and herb butter. Serve up as a side with pasta, as part of a sharer or alongside soups and starters. It even makes a great starter on its own with more garlic butter, Cajan Tomato sauce or Redpepperjam to dip into.
“A really good Pretzel is a wonderful thing,” says Tom Styman-Heighton, Development Chef at Funnybones Foodservice. “They should be served slightly warm to ensure they are at their best. We are accustomed to a crunchy biscuit style Pretzel here but the Americans enjoy the real Mccoy. The best Pretzels deliver a chewy outer enclosing a softer interior, are brown in colour, often salted and always made from a long roll of dough tied in a knot.”
The Funnybones Swabian Pretzel arrives fully baked and frozen. It can be cooked from frozen in two to three minutes. There are 48 to a case.
“Just like the Focaccia, the Baguette, and the Ciabatta, the Pretzel is set to become one of our favourite breads for serving alongside food,” says Tom. “Pretzels are poised to take their place as the side of choice to serve with American dishes in this country. Perfect with ribs, Mac n’cheese, hearty salads and steaks, they are an ideal American-style bread choice for the menu.”
