I've gotta say, Dot's Pretzels may be the great thing imported from North Dakota. It started out as a 'I'd see them here and there' but apparently they're popular enough that I never have issues finding a store in Yakima that carries them. The flavor-dusted pretzels are truly amazing.

If you love them as much as I do, and you love chocolate, you'll be happy to know there's now a chocolate bar that features bits of these pretzels in them. I know, it may sound a little weird at first, but the combination works and works very well.

If you're interested, I found these at the Ace Hardware in Tieton Village (off 36th and Tieton).
