Vibrant Flavors Giveaway & Review
I received a box with pretzels and dukkah to sample and review from Vibrant Flavors.  Here's some information about Vibrant Flavors from their website:

About Vibrant Flavors

An Oregon company, whose mission is simple: to bring healthy, flavorful and exotic foods to you.
Vibrant Flavors is a dream come true. Literally. Donna Dockins created original recipes and healthy meals for her clients in a private chef and catering business. She often thought about how to bring these delicious recipes to the world. When a friend from New Zealand introduced her to dukkah, the dream became reality. Dukkah, a blend of nuts, seeds and spices, is a traditional food from Ancient Egypt. Eaten as a snack or part of a light meal, dukkah is known for its complex flavors, crunchy texture and nutritious attributes.
After realizing that dukkah’s main ingredient was hazelnuts, one of Oregon’s major crops, Donna’s quest began. She developed five unique flavors of dukkah using the traditional base of hazelnuts, sesame seeds and peanuts. Vibrant Flavors Oregon Dukkah is a healthy, delicious product made from locally sourced Oregon ingredients. The packaging for Oregon Dukkah is produced in Oregon and is made from recycled and biodegradable materials.
Donna’s attraction to the unique and unusual soon had her experimenting again. This time with an old favorite – hard pretzels. Crunchy, flavored snacks have always been a favorite of hers. Never liking the greasy film or sticky powder that coated her hands when eating flavored chips, she engaged her creative spirit to develop something clean, crisp and different. After many months of trial and error, she developed a unique way to flavor hard pretzels. Vibrant Flavors Pretzels are all natural, crunchy and delicious.

Happy Snacking!
Donna
First I tried the sweet onion pretzels.  They are really good.  I like the shape, it's different.  They have just the right amount of salt.  They are sweet and oniony, it's a really good combination.  I would recommend these even to those who do not like onion.
Roasted garlic are my favorite.  I really enjoy garlic and these pretzels satisfy my garlic cravings.  They are so easy to just grab and go.  These are a wonderfully easy snack.

The beerzels are very good.  I do love beer and I do love pretzels.  I would have never thought to put the combination together, but I am so glad that they did.  This is a really great combination.  I really enjoyed the beerzels.

Italian herb is another really great flavor.  I am so glad that I found vibrant flavors and got to try these amazing pretzels.


The barbecue pretzels are my husband's favorite.  He ate the whole bag before I could even get one.  I asked him what he thought about them and he just smiled and showed me the empty bag.  I know they must be amazing or he would have given them to me.





I had never heard of Dukkah before trying it now.  I was not sure what to expect, but it's like dip only dry.  I ate it with bread, on chips, on pretzels, and on a pita.  I really did like the dukkah.  The sweet was my favorite.
