Two Great Tastes that Taste Great Together!

Ladies and gentlemen, the next generation of coaster modeling has arrived. Your medium? Pretzels!

That's right, folks. Snyder's of Hanover and Busch Gardens Williamsburg are challenging you to put aside the traditional media and try your hand at building a world-class thrill machine out of one of America's favorite snack foods. Entries for this unique contest will be accepted through June 15, 2009. The judges will then narrow down the field and invite a select group of prezel coaster building dynamos to compete against each other in the "The Pretzel Coaster Build-Off", which will take place on July 16 at Busch Gardens Williamsburg. The grand prize winner will receive four Worlds of Discovery Platinum Passes and a year's supply of pretzels from Snyder's of Hanover!

This contest has only one real "rule": Your coaster creation must be built completely from Snyder's pretzels and glue. Yes, Snyder's and Snyder's alone! (I can't help but wonder what will happen if the judges detect a pretzel imposter...)

For more details, visit the official contest page. And by all means, if you decide to submit an entry please share it with us too!

Editor's Note: Before you run to the store to ransack the Snyder's pretzel display, be sure to read the Official Rules of this contest. Among other things, apparently it is only open to residents of certain states. The link (which is so well hidden that I never even saw it the day I wrote this post!) can be found in the paragraph above the Submit button.
