New Jersey woman declared winner at Pretzel Coaster Build-Off

    They don’t taste very good or look very sturdy, but the pretzel coasters built yesterday at Busch Gardens in Williamsburg, Virginia sure do look impressive.

    Held together with lots of hot glue, the coaster mock-ups were made entirely of Snyder’s of Hanover pretzels to replicate the amusement park’s Loch Ness Monster roller coaster.

    And for the second year in a row, Wayne, N.J., resident Jennifer Westcott took home the grand prize. For her efforts, Westcott went home with a four-pack of two-year, 2-Park passes to Busch Gardens and Water Country USA, and a year’s supply of Snyder’s of Hanover pretzels.
