Does anyone else remember as a kid having the Utz truck come around and make deliveries to houses like the milkman did? I do. Utz made the best
pretzels, potato chips and snacks of anyone, and they had routes people would sign up for. They'd deliver right to your house. The potato chips and
pretzels came in these big tins which you could use for all sorts of fun projects; they were awesome for using to blast into the sky with M80's.
One of the best products they carried were their pretzels. Why? Because they were SALTY, like pretzels should be!
The Utz company has been around for ages, but mostly they're just sold in stores now and in much smaller packaging. They also neutered most of their
salty snacks by removing most of the salt, and they fell from grace with us and many others as a result. However, the other day the wife picked up a
plastic barrel of Utz pretzels, and guess what? They're awesome...and they're SALTY! The plastic jug is almost as big as their old delivered tins
used to be. Hey, it's better than nothin'.
I still kind of wish I'd see the light tan Utz truck driving around through neighborhoods though. Nostalgic thing maybe, but the Utz truck never
stopped at our house. We were too cheap for that, but I always looked forward to Wednesdays when the truck would deliver to some of the neighbor
places; it was time to go over to their house!
Remember the Utz truck?
