LANCASTER, Pa., March 12, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Auntie Anne's, the world's largest hand-rolled soft pretzel franchise, is assisting fans with a slam dunk snack this basketball season. In partnership with Coca-Cola, Auntie Anne's is bringing the action on the court directly to pretzel lovers with limited edition Basketball Buckets and a mobile game where fans can literally shoot buckets of their own. Each Basketball Bucket features unique packaging that transforms the brands' traditional bucket into a basketball hoop with backboard, filled with freshly baked Pretzel Nuggets or Mini Pretzel Dogs and a scanable code for a chance to play the Basketball Buckets Challenge right on your smartphone.
From March 12 to April 9, guests who purchase Auntie Anne's Basketball Buckets in-store and online, can shoot and score for a chance to win instantly* after signing up at Coke.com/Rewards. The rules are simple: scan the code on the bucket's backboard, score as many baskets as you can in 15 seconds and see if you've instantly won fun – not to mention delicious – prizes at Auntie Anne's, including a small Coca-Cola fountain soda, an Original or Cinnamon Sugar Pretzel, or a $0 delivery fee on an Auntie Anne's order through DoorDash.
