When Maria Vassett reached out to us to come try her freshly baked pretzels in Tempe, she didn’t need to twist my arm. The small pretzel company The Salted Knot AZ was started by Vassett and her husband Chad Day earlier this year out of their home in Tempe with a cottage kitchen license and a know-how of the knot.
The box we received contained at least six large soft pretzels that were hot out of the oven, perfectly salted and accompanied by several small containers of cheese dip and packets of mustard. Two large Peanut Butter Bombs (baked pretzel balls with peanut butter in the middle) and several smaller Sweet Bites (sugar-coated donut holes) also came in the box along with some jelly and sweet cream cheese dipping sauces. We’d recommend this snack box to share with the office, take it to an afternoon tailgate or enjoy at home while watching college football on the couch.
Ordering from Salted Knot AZ is available Wednesday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. through direct message on either its Instagram or Facebook accounts. A website for ordering is coming soon. Vassett also tells us she has vegan options and expects her pretzel snack boxes will soon be available on DoorDash for delivery.
