When you think of promotional pretzels, what do you picture? Regular knot like pretzels, pretzel sticks, soft pretzels, giant pretzels, covered pretzels, or something entirely different?
Although pretzels were not introduced into North America until the 19th century, when German immigrants known as Pennsylvania Dutch began producing them here, they were actually originated in about 610 A.D. by Christian monks. Their popularity rapidly spread, and in the twentieth century soft pretzels became popular. The large German population in Pennsylvania contributed to it being considered the birthplace of the American pretzel industry, and where 80% of the pretzel production is located. There is even a private Pretzel Museum located in Pennsylvania, as well as a National Pretzel Day celebrated on April 26!
It’s no wonder, then, that promotional pretzels, make great advertising items. They are a well known, well loved and delicious snack. They have long been distributed at schools, events, as well as at grocery and convenience stores. You can find them at movie theaters and sports stadiums, as well as at tradeshows and conventions.

Each box comes with a one color hot stamp of your logo on the lid and ribbon that adds the perfect finishing touch.

Trade shows are usually massive, multiple day events. People walk around from table to table, getting information on different companies and even scoping out other businesses with which to form partnerships. Usually, food is readily available, but many people will forget to bring bottles of water along with them while they are making the rounds. And no matter whether it is the middle of winter or the middle of the hottest summer possible, people need water to drink during these trade shows. Which is one of the biggest reasons that getting bottled water with your logo on it can be a very effective use of a promotional item.
If it’s your first trade show or your hundredth, everyone can agree that breaking the ice with people attending trade shows can be difficult. If you’ve got a consumable that nearly everyone needs, it becomes that much easier to say “Excuse me, would you like a drink?” than to shout a pitch over all the rest of the noise going on.
Don’t do trade shows? You can still benefit greatly from putting your logo on bottled water. Keep it on hand in the office for meetings, and load up employee refrigerators. Even if during meetings, most potential clients take coffee, it’s customary to offer water along with the coffee as well.
When your employees grab a drink before they head out on their lunch break, they’ll be carrying your brand along with them. This offers brand exposure opportunities; even better because the logo is in the hands of one of your employees, who can easily offer more information or specific phone numbers for people to contact.
Drinking more water is something we are constantly told to strive for because it is healthier. And, according to health research, it is. So why not take advantage of having bottled water with your logo on it? Get your brand out there and into people’s hands via something they will use and carry with them, and they will remember you.
Betsy Ann, Sarris, and Hershey are some of my favorite brands of chocolate. It gives me that mid-afternoon boost of energy, improves my mood, and not to mention tastes delicious. If consumed in moderation some kinds of chocolate can actually be good for you.
In the CNN article (linked below) I read, they performed research at Tufts University. Jeffrey Blumberg, director of the Antioxidants Research Laboratory found hypertensive people who ate 3.5 ounces of dark chocolate per day for two weeks saw their blood pressure drop significantly. Also, chocolate milk may help you recover after a tough workout.
Of course with all the calories chocolate has, it should not be a substitute for fruits and vegetables, you need the vitamins, and potassium that they provide your body.
What is Chocolate good for?
Heart- Yes! It helps reduce blood pressure levels. Also it can decrease the risks of cardiovascular disease for people with hypertension. Cocoa Increases supply of blood to the brain, but dark chocolate reduces oxidative stress and contains high levels of antioxidants.
Preventing Cancer- Yes! Dark Chocolate, which contains 13,120 ORACs (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity Units), can help prevent Alzheimer’s disease, arthritis, and cholesterol problems.
Mood Elevation- Yes! Serotonin and Dopamine are the two chemicals governing moods in the body. Cocoa contains monoamine oxidize inhibitors which flow freely in the bloodstream for longer periods of time which keeps the mood elevated.
Brain- Yes! Chocolate may boost one’s concentration and attention span, enhances memory, also problem solving skills as it increases blood flow to the brain.
Skin- Yes! Researchers believe that the flavonoids (flavonoids- Vitamin P and Citrin – plant nutrients which are non-toxic and beneficial to the human body) in cocoa absorb UV light, thereby protecting the skin and improving its appearance. These flavonoids also help in fighting wrinkles and also help slow down the aging process.
Teeth- Somewhat! Besides chocolate conducing to teeth decay scientists have said that chocolate has the ability to offset the acid producing potential of the sugar it contains. The tannins (a vegetable, defensive compounds that counteracts bacteria and fungi) in cocoa interfere with the action of bacteria on the teeth, which reduces cavity formation. The cocoa content in chocolate is good for teeth; however, it’s the sugar that causes the trouble.
