One of the easiest ways to acquire some Zero Point Pretzels is to buy them from Chrome Punk. You should have another challenge to dance with him already, so this way, you can knock out two challenges in one go. He is seen wandering around Flutter Barn in the smaller eastern building. You can buy the Pretzels from him for 120 Gold Bars each, so you may have to save up a little beforehand.

If you don't have any Gold Bars to spare, you can also find them in Candy Buckets. These are Halloween props added around the world in various locations, mainly next to shops and businesses or residential areas on the Island. You can find three or more of these buckets right in Chrome Crossroads, as shown in the picture above. You aren't guaranteed to find a Pretzel each time you search these containers, so you may have to try a few times.
