Pineapple Pretzel Fluff Salad

Okay, we realize it’s common to sneer at popular cuisine from the ’50s and ’60s. I mean, sandwich loaves wrapped in gelatin? It seems like a reach, but for every meal from that era that we think looks completely insane now, there’s a dish that’s endured the test of time and still tastes really fantastic. That’s how we feel about the majority of fruity “fluff” salads.

Again, calling these jello and whipped topping-laden dishes “salads” is a stretch, but we can’t deny how delicious they are, and this pineapple pretzel fluff is no exception. Despite being loaded with cream cheese, Cool Whip, and pineapple, as well as candied pretzel pieces, this fluff is light and fluffy. Were we too hasty to dismiss “candied pretzel”? Let’s go over it again…The candied pretzel component is the most interesting feature of this recipe, and it really sets it apart from all other similar dishes.

Butter and sugar are the magical ingredients that turn crushed pretzels into the crunchiest, yummiest addition we could think of. With the pretzels and pineapple, this recipe is salty-sweet at its finest, with just the proper amount of tang from the cream cheese, and it truly tastes fantastic. When we say it’s one of those dishes where you’ll find yourself scooping bites out of the container while standing in front of the fridge, we mean it. But probably not!
