PRINCETON, NJ – April 26, 2012 – The votes are in and America has chosen the very best appetizers from the “Got An App For That?” Pretzel Crisps® Appetizer Contest. On March 19th, the snack brand began its search for the tastiest pairings from its ever growing community of 235,000 plus Facebook fans and today, on National Pretzel Day, Pretzel Crisps is happy to announce the six winners!
For three weeks, participants were able to submit recipes and photos to the Pretzel Crisps Facebook page in the following categories: sweet, spicy, meat, veggie, cheese and bacon. Following the submission period, an internal panel of judges chose ten finalists per category to move onto the final voting stage.

Those six category winners, which have been determined 100% by fan votes, will walk away with a year’s supply of Pretzel Crisps, the “Got An App For That?” recipe book featuring their creation and $1,000. So without further ado, the winners of the “Got An App For That?” Pretzel Crisps® Appetizer Contest are: Felice Bogus (Raleigh, NC), Linda Cifuentes (Mahomet, IL), Jeremy Crow (Knoxville, TN), Cathi Lannone (Thornton, CO), Cheryl Lundquist (Wake Forest, NC) and Miho Okada-Nishino (Palatine, IL)!
