ATLANTA, April 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Pretzelmaker announced today that the company has introduced a HOT new dog as part of their national New Dog, New Kick celebration. The Jalapeno Pretzel Dog features a plump, 100% Angus beef hot dog wrapped in Pretzelmaker's signature soft pretzel dough and topped with diced jalapenos and zesty spices. The Jalapeno Pretzel Dog joins multiple other Pretzelmaker innovations, including the original Pretzel Dog and portable Mini Pretzel Dogs. Pretzelmaker is managed by GFG Management, LLC, a subsidiary of Global Franchise Group.

If the introduction of the Jalapeno Pretzel Dog wasn't sizzling enough, Pretzelmaker is also rolling out their new Jalapeno Pretzel. Both products are available for a limited time only.

"Pretzelmaker's heritage of product innovation is built around a dedication to new products that are in line with current consumer tastes and trends," said Jenn Johnston, chief marketing & operations officer for GFG Management, LLC. "Our original Pretzel Dog is an established customer favorite and adding a new 'kick' with the Jalapeno ingredient is a natural progression for this product line."

The Jalapeno Pretzel Dog and Jalapeno Pretzel are complimented by Pretzelmaker's wide variety of dipping sauces as well as the company's extensive line of specialty beverages, including blended drinks and original lemonade.
