Fretzels By Jill Review and Giveaway

Let's continue the chocolate contests in style! I could eat chocolate covered pretzels everyday if given the chance. I love the sweet and salty combination. Pretzels and chocolate are such a classic combination that you can never go wrong with.

Fretzels By Jill is a relatively new company. In December 2001, Jill, working as an art director at a large advertising agency in New York, made her chocolate-covered pretzels for an office holiday party. They were a hit! Jill's edible art proved to be so irresistible that everyone's raving turned into encouragement. She had to get her pretzels out there for other people to try.

Using her creativity and background in design, Jill perfected various pretzel creations and designed a logo and packaging, quickly turning her passion and pastime into a business. Thus, Fretzels™ by Jill "Frechtman" was born.

Jill certainly has a talent, and an eye for design and taste. Her pretzels are absolutely beyond gorgeous. Whether you would like a gift basket, peanut butter chip pretzels, m&m pretzels, or cookies n creme pretzels and even more, Jill has you covered.

I was sent a bag of Fractured Fretzels. These pretzel pieces are drenched in Premium Belgium Milk Chocolate and generously adorned with our "Confetti" creation of all our favorite toppings.


These pretzels are so unique. Imagine you want a large pretzel, a bag of M&Ms, reese's pieces, nuts, and sprinkles all at the same time. What do you do? You don't want to overdo it and have all of those sweet treats at once. But now you can turn to Fractured Fretzels and have a pretzel with all of your favorite candies at once! Jill is a genius for producing this product.

When I sampled the pretzel, it was heavenly. The crunch of the pretzel paired with the sweetness of the chocolate, the creaminess of the peanut butter, and the crunch of the nuts and sprinkles was perfect. Seriously, it was the best thing I ever ate. Like I mentioned before, sweet and salty is such a magnificent combination. This might be sensory overload for people when they first look at it, but I promise you will love it. The recloseable bag is great and comes in handy so the pretzels stay fresh. I better watch it before I eat the entire bag! Any Fretzels by Jill would make a perfect gift!
