Pretzel Crisps serves up respect to bloggers!

While checking my Twitter mentions I came across a tweet from a company called Pretzel Crisps they wanted my address in order to send me some free snacks. Now, such offers aren’t unusual for bloggers but the experience that followed most certainly was.

Pretzel Crisps Snack Angel

Pretzel Crisps Snack Angel

 

 

I checked out the company’s tastefully done website & yummy Facebook page noted that these snacks contain 0 trans fat & are fairly low in calories & shot them back a DM with my addie .I figured a few snacks might arrive in the mail in a week or two accompanied by standard pitch material. Wrong! It gets better, they DM me back, ask if I’d like my snacks that evening, would it be okay if they delivered them to me ….

Within one hour this lovely snack angel arrived on my doorstep arms laden with snack bags for me! LOL, ok she’s already probably won herself a mention in my will at this point but it gets even better….

Serving up Respect!

Pretzel Crisps asked me if I had a favorite charity, a group that could benefit from the provision of some free snacks. I suggested my very favorite charity The Asperger’s Association of New England a non-profit group that provides social groups & functions for teens & adults on the spectrum. Was able to introduce them on Twitter as well and some nice folks will have some snacking love heading their way!

This was tasty PR served up beautifully

These snacks are totally tasty & they were made even better by the fact that this company took the time to actually know a bit about me as a blogger,their outreach was totally in keeping with this site’s focus on finer living.The rep made me feel special by hand delivering their products & they honored me by donating to my favorite charity. Pretzel Crisps scored a home run with me, left me deeply impressed with the quality of their products & of the care & concern they have in terms of customer service!

Have you had PR served up well?

As a blogger or journalist have you experienced PR that was so elegantly delivered that you wanted to tell everybody you know? Come on in, put the spotlight on brands that got it right!

Btw, Tuscan Three Cheese,Garlic Parmesan & Classic are my fav’s Smile

  1. Wow…really, really impressive. I’ve dealt with some great companies, but none that have gone THIS far. Good for you…and good for them!

    Kristin :)

  2. This is so refresfing to see!

    With the constant debate of the value of bloggers and especially whether or not “mommy bloggers” deserve respect in the media industry, it is nice to see a brand stepping up to the plate and recognizing our value.

    Thanks for posting this!

    Keenly,
    I’ll tell you, they were so nice, I literally sprang into action to post about the experience even though they made it clear I was totally not obligated to do so. This was such a nice treat!

    Brittney,

    We all get so many people who don’t even really say so much as “hello” before they pitch requests at us to review/post about things for free, things that won’t benefit our readers. I think it’s really important to also talk about brands & PR people who go out of their way for us.

    thanks for stopping in :)

    I have had a totally different experience. This company doesn’t reply on twitter to anyone with less than 5k followers. I am not impressed whatsoever. They need to learn that if they want to promote their brand, they should hit reply. I will live fine without their pretzels

  6. Jean Parks says:

    tianna,
    I’m curious as to how you arrived at that conclusion, the impression I got is that this is a cheerful, responsive company, can you tell us more?

    Editing this to say that I just went to pretzel crisps twitter timeline , I clicked on the first three user names that pretzel crisps last tweeted at… all 3 twitter accts had less than 5k followers

  7. Followed you from the hop. That is some very nice service to say the least. Hope you enjoy your treats and have a relaxing weekend! Btw- following you on Twitter as well.

    Very cool- I didnt even know they were on Twitter-I love there products!

    How nice they treated you this way- a class act- they can count on my business!

  9. Wow, that is truly generous of them and practically unheard of, at least in my experience. Mmm, those Tuscan three cheese pretzel chips have my mouth watering. Must find them.

  10. Suzan says:

    Wow! Most impressive… Now I’ll have to try them. I wonder how the plain pretzel crisps would taste with M&M’s?

  11. Jean Parks says:

    Jamie, The Tuscan three cheese are seriously good, actually all of the flavors are tasty but I tend to gravitate to cheese, garlic or onion flavors in this type of snack.

  12. abitnerdy says:

    How fun and unique, I love it. A personal unique touch in PR is always welcomes and I love what pretzel crisp did! :)

  13. Aaron says:

    Wow!! This is certainly an amazing blogger outreach. Certainly one that everyone can learn. Thank you for sharing Jean. Btw, can I share this post for my focus Friday this coming friday?

  14. janwong says:

    This is amazing! There is just so much time, effort and genuine interest in this that every business should learn from. Yet another example of a good product made awesome with all the added value to it. Thanks for sharing!

  15. Jean Parks says:

    Aaron, I get a lot of my inspiration from you, the way you focus on the positive, and reward brands with mention & praise when they attempt to do a good job via social media .

    And of course you can use this post, thank you for the honor:)

  16. Jean Parks says:

    Hello Jan, thank you so much for stopping in:) yes, this company really did a top notch job here & it is a pleasure to reward them with this public praise.

  17. Christen says:

    Wow! I’m not even a huge pretzel-lover but a company that treats bloggers with respect like this will get my business (snack dollars) any day.
