my mom and i created stellar snacks with a dream of crafting pretzels infused with passion.

Along with our brilliant team, we bake our snacks from scratch daily right here in Carson City, Nevada. From hand-picked seasonings to sustainably harvested flours, we take pride in the natural ingredients used to make our ambitious flavors.

we believe that something as small as a pretzel can have a purpose.

That’s why we commission talented, budding artists to design one-of-a-kind artwork for our bags, making them a canvas for something truly Stellar. We lose sleep over baking the best tasting pretzels (we’re not kidding) because to us, it’s not just a pretzel... it’s a labor of love.

Our Flour

It all starts with the highest quality wheat and barley flour, sustainably grown and milled right here in the U.S.

Our Butter

Rich, smooth, and 100% vegan, our signature butter will make you a believer after just one bite.

Our Salt

The perfect sea salt does exist. We import ours from Italy and add a just-right pinch to every pretzel.

Our Seasoning

Nature knows best. That’s why we only use pure, whole ingredients like garlic, onion, and monk fruit.
