WHAT CAME FIRST, THE CRACKER OR THE CHEESE?

1970s

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.
