How do I store crunchy pretzels to keep them from getting stale?

When storing crunchy pretzels, there are a few key things to keep in mind to prevent them from going stale.

First and foremost, it’s crucial to keep pretzels in an airtight container. This can be a resealable bag or airtight jar – ensuring that no air can get in and dry out the pretzels.

Additionally, it’s best to keep the container in a cool, dry place, as heat and humidity can also contribute to staleness.

Finally, if you’re storing pretzels for an extended period, it may be helpful to consider investing in a vacuum sealer.

Removing all the air from the container ensures the pretzels stay fresh and crunchy until you’re ready to enjoy them.

With these tips in mind, you can rest easy knowing that your pretzels will stay delicious for as long as possible.
