Our pretzels are easier to bite than most hard pretzels. We use only flour, water, yeast and salt. The flavored pretzels have herbs, real cheese and real butter added to the dough. No additives or shelf life extenders are ever used in our pretzels. We date them six months ahead when we make them. They keep best in an air tight metal or glass container. We will always ship our pretzels with at least four months before expiration. Unfortunately, we can not guarantee pretzels will not arrive unbroken.
- Plain pretzels (P) are just that. No flavors added. There is salt on the pretzel. For no salt or extra salt see below. We no longer make extra dark. We sell the Unique brand extra dark pretzel because they make a better extra dark pretzel (this pretzel is on the regional pretzel page).
- Herb pretzels (HP)are seasoned with oregano, basil, marjoram, parsley and garlic powder. They are also fat free.
- Cheese pretzels (CP) have a combination of cheddar cheese and parmesan cheese. They have a lighter taste than most cheese snack products because we do not use yellow powdered cheese.
- Brown butter pretzels (BB) are our twisted invention, and it is the personal favorite of most of our employees. Brown butter is butter that is cooked on medium heat until the solids separate and brown. This gives the butter a richer, nuttier flavor. In the Pennsylvania Dutch country, butter is typically browned before putting it on our potatoes, noodles and vegetables.
NOTE ON ORDERING Extra Salty or Unsalted (baldies) pretzels — They are available special order on any of our flavors. Please be aware if you are on a salt restricted diet, there is significant salt on a pretzel you can not see. Our pretzel is cooked briefly in a highly concentrated salt water bath before baking. The brown outside of a pretzel is caused by the salt bath. There are two distinct flavors when you eat a pretzel, the no salt dough on the inside and the brown salt shell on the outside. To order a special amount or no salt on your pretzel, please note your requirements in the note box at the end of the order.
