COLUMBUS, Ohio, July 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- It's no secret that White Castle's 100-percent all white meat Chicken Rings have been a fan favorite for years. Now, America's first fast-food hamburger chain is introducing a new hot and tasty variation – Pretzel Chicken Rings, made with 100-percent all white meat chicken with a crunchy pretzel coating. For a limited time, Cravers can enjoy a Sack of 20 Original Chicken Rings or Pretzel Chicken Rings for just $4.99.

"Our Original Chicken Rings are a popular menu item, available any time, and we're excited for our Cravers to try the new crunchy and seriously satisfying, Pretzel Chicken Rings," said Jamie Richardson, White Castle vice president. "They're crispy, dip-able and shareable, and are the perfect compliment to your favorite summer activities."

In honor of summer fun and creating memorable moments, White Castle, the Official Sponsor of Unofficial Games, will also launch an interactive social media contest. Cravers are invited to play along on Twitter (@whitecastle) and Instagram (@whitecastle) for a chance to win prizes.

"At White Castle, we define unofficial games as any type of game or sport that you play in the spirit of friendly competition, fun and togetherness," said Richardson. "Games can be outdoors or indoors, real or imagined. So, whether our Cravers play to keep score or play for the sake of fun, we can't wait to see what they come up with."

Those interested can enter the contest on Twitter and Instagram by sharing pictures of their Unofficial Games and telling White Castle why they play by using the hashtags #UnofficialGames and #Contest. Three winners will receive fun prizes and gear for their team. Each entry will be judged based on creativity of the game, quality of the story and level of fun depicted in the photo.
