Why you need to hack this classic Dayton restaurant’s cheesy snack

When you see the light, you can never snack in the darkness again. 

That was my thought after taking my first bite of the Oregon Express’ jumbo pretzel hack

I’ll explain. 

I’d had the pretzel bites before, but never have I had them jacked up with baked-on Swiss cheese and honey mustard dipping sauce

The jumbo pretzel with Swiss is a simple snack with complexity.  

The pretzels themselves are salty, chewy and have just the right amount of  crunch. 

The baked on cheese has a Parmesan-crisp quality and adds the oil a great bar snack needs. 

You can have them with marinara dipping sauce. 

Two pretzels and sauce are $5.29. It is an additional $2 to add the Swiss.
