Auntie Anne's is Spreading Cheer this Holiday Season with their #CupOfCheer! {Free Pretzel Giveaway - 5 winners!}

Auntie Anne's logo
Does it seem ironic to anyone else that, although the holiday season is meant to be a time of year that is filled with love and togetherness and joy, it always also ends up being the most stressful, crabby, hate-filled time as well?

Can't we just agree to focus on our families and our loved ones and generosity instead of the anger and greed that causes us to yell and shove one another out of the way in order to save a few bucks on a Blu-ray player?

This year I'm looking for any and all ways to keep my eyes on the positives and help make others' lives better as well... and I'm not the only one. We can all bask in the delight and wonder of the season (while giving our taste buds a special treat as well) thanks to Auntie Anne's and their Cup of Cheer!

Auntie Anne's cup of cheer

This holiday season Auntie Anne's is sharing their delicious new Mini Pretzel Dogs along with a line of three Pretzel Nugget flavors — Original, Cinnamon and Sugar, and Snowballs (powdered sugar-covered Nuggets). Can you say YUM?

All of Auntie Anne's Mini Pretzel Dogs and Nuggets are hand-rolled and baked fresh right before your eyes to give you a delicious, one-of-a-kind taste while you are on the go. So this year, take a break from the hustle and bustle of your shopping and stop in at your nearest Auntie Anne's location to pick up a baked cup of cheer!

But that's not all! Auntie Anne's is also spreading the cheer your way even if you don't set foot outside of your home with their fun 12 Days of Cheer Cup game.

From now until December 13th, simply head over to Facebook and take a try guessing which cup is covering the Nugget... you'll have a chance to win all sorts of awesome prizes such as Beats by Dre headphones, Keurig MINIs, Auntie Anne's T-shirts and At-Home Baking Kits, and more!

Looks easy, doesn't it? Then why do I keep guessing the wrong cup??

Auntie Anne's has definitely made it easier to survive this holiday season with ease and style around here with the arrival of a special Cup of Cheer delivery.

Could this bucket be filled with anything more fun to enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of the holiday season?

Auntie Anne's giveaway

Holiday red nail polish and a Corkcicle for all of our upcoming holiday parties, a scented candle to fill our home with the aroma of the season, a super-comfy Cup of Cheer t-shirt to help spread happiness and much more!

If you've never thought about an Auntie Anne's At-Home Baking Kit as a necessary item for your holiday shopping list, think again! Not only would this be an extremely fun gift to give, it's just so easy to use it to whip up any of Auntie Anne's great holiday recipes to surprise your guests!

This convenient kit includes everything you need to get started! Of course you can make Auntie Anne's delicious pretzels, but did you know that this kit is also a great starting point for making a whole slew of tasty recipes? Just head over to Auntie Anne's Recipes and you'll find yourself inspired to make all sorts of crowd-pleasing dishes to share that are perfect for the holidays.

Auntie Anne's holiday recipes

Every year Auntie Anne's rolls more than 97 million pretzels at their 1,330+ locations all over the world, so if you haven't stopped by lately, you are missing out! This holiday season, choose to focus on joy and head over to an Auntie Anne's location near you for a Cup of (delicious) Cheer that is sure to bring a smile to your face!

And, thanks to the generosity of Auntie Anne's five people will soon be prepared to have their own cheerful pretzel break as well, because...

Five lucky people will win Free Pretzel cards from Auntie Anne's!

A big thank you to Auntie Anne's for providing a Cup of Cheer bucket for me along with 5 coupons for free pretzels for five lucky giveaway winners. The opinions shared are my own and honest and if you really need to see more, click here to see how I roll.
