Free Wetzel’s Pretzels Pizza Bitz at three Inland Empire locations on Thursday

Pizza BitzThe people have spoken.

And the people of the Inland Empire have spoken very loudly.

Last month, Wetzel’s Pretzels asked its Facebook fans which stores should have the chain’s new Pizza Bitz — bite-size snacks made with pretzel dough, topped with cheese and pepperoni — before the rest of America.

The people of the Inland Empire responded in full force: Half of the six stores chosen are here!

On Thursday (September 3), you’ll be able to sample Pizza Bitz — for free! — at the following locations:

Sorry Inland Center, Montclair Plaza and The Shoppes at Chino Hills.

You’ll also be able to sample them at the Los Cerritos Center in Cerritos, the Merced Mall in Merced and at Paradise Valley in Phoenix.

Pizza Bitz will be available in the rest of the locations nationwide just a few days later, on September 8.
