5 Ways to Up Your Charcuterie Game This Holiday Season with Snack Factory Pretzel Crisps

(BPT) – ‘Tis the season for charcuterie boards and holiday hosting — and Snack Factory® Pretzel Crisps, the connoisseurs of charcuterie, are here to help you be the host with the most!

From butter boards to rainbow boards, and everything in between, Snack Factory® Pretzel Crisps are at the heart of every charcuterie board trend (charcu-trend, if you will). That’s why this holiday season, the thin, crisp pretzel brand is declaring the next charcu-trend — Dip Boards.

Perfect for every palate and every guest, Dip Boards featuring Snack Factory® Pretzel Crisps are the most delicious company this holiday season. From Caramelized Onion dip and Pretzel Crisps Sea Salt + Black Pepper, to Spicy Feta and Pretzel Crisps Original, or Hummus and Pretzel Crisps Everything, Pretzel Crisps have never met a dip they can’t pair with.

Check out these five tips to create the perfect Dip Board and elevate your holiday party:

1. Don’t Be Afraid to Mingle: Who says a Dip Board needs to stick to one type of dip? Not us! From spicy to sweet, to sweet and savory, a Dip Board is the perfect opportunity to expand your palate. So, when building your Dip Board, try putting a Tzatziki dip alongside Pretzel Crisps Garlic Parmesan, next to a spicy Three-Cheese Queso with Pretzel Crisps Everything, and artichoke dip with Pretzel Crisps Original.

2. It’s All About the Base: We’ve all been there — indulging in your favorite dip, then bam it spills all over yourself, just when everyone is watching. Make sure to build a strong base for your Dip Board with Snack Factory® Pretzel Crisps — with a thin salty crunch but still sturdy enough to scoop and spread, they will save you from (most) awkward charcuterie board encounters.

3. Prep for the Restock in Advance: Let’s be honest — the food is the most delicious company at any holiday gathering. As a host, avoid having to constantly restock your Dip Board throughout the evening by preparing for the second — or third — round in advance. Have your extra dips, larger Snack Factory® Pretzel Crisp Party Size 14oz bags and serving spoons conveniently located near your board so you can quickly restock without a pause in conversation.

4. Let It Shine: The holidays are a time for friends, friends of friends, family, extended family, neighbors and the “who are yous” to gather. Let your Dip Board be a conversation starter by incorporating eye-popping colors, designs (anyone heard of a Dip Board tree?) and unexpected flavors. While it may not start the most riveting conversation, it’s a great way to fill in an awkward silence or two.

5. Perfect Pairings: There’s something magical about everything pairing perfectly. With so many flavor profiles possible on a Dip Board, why not take it up a notch and pair the flavors of your Dip Board with a festive cocktail (or mocktail)? Try a sweet Dip Board pairing chocolate chip cookie dough dip with White Crème Peppermint Pretzel Crisps and a dry glass of Sauvignon Blanc, or a spicy Dip Board with a Mulled Apple Cider for the ultimate taste bud experience.
