WHAT CAME FIRST, THE CRACKER OR THE CHEESE?
The world is full of combinations, and we can’t stop putting them together. We first discovered our love for combinations in the early 1970s in Battlecreek, Michigan when we used a drill press to make a hole in a pretzel and filled it with nacho cheese. Since then we haven’t been able to stop putting together new and tasty combinations.
With the delicious power of combinations vested in us, in 1978, we proclaimed filled shells are called Shotzels and empty shells are called Nutzels. Plus, we moved production to Albany, Georgia, and officially joined the MARS family.
COMBOS Pretzels came out in 1980 and became a go-to salty snack on the go.
Dooley’s/Corn-Quistos launched in 1982, introducing a flavorful tortilla twist.
It’s crunch time! COMBOS Crackers hit the market in 1985.
In 1988, COMBOS ingeniously united pepperoni-flavored fillings and crunchy oven-baked crackers to create the Pepperoni Pizza Cracker. Two snacks for the price of one.
This new addition in 1992 definitely cut the mustard. COMBOS Mustard Pretzel brought crispy and tangy closer than ever before.
Whether it’s our classic duo of baked pretzel and cheddar cheese or our pepperoni pizza baked cracker, there is bound to be a combo you can’t resist. It’s not easy being this good, but hey - when you got it, you got it.
