All Out of Pretzels

March 22, 2007 at 3:24 am 11 comments

Okay, so today I am frustrated.  I am all out of pretzels, my favorite snack.  What’s a Pretzelgirl to do? pretzels1.jpg

 I had stocked up on my favorites when I was last in Philly, but I finished them up way too quickly.  Living in New York City where you can find anything – Pretzels are not as big a thing here as they are in PA.  Pennsylvania, the Keystone state, should be renamed, The Pretzel State because you can get numberous brands, flavors sizes, shapes and textures in any supermarket.


While living in LA a few years ago, I used to mail order from my current favorite pretzel company, UTZ Snacks.  They also make delicious potato chips, cheese curls, and corn chips but their pretzels are what turned me on to the company and the basic sourdough hard pretzels are my absolute favorite.  They have a spectacular crunch and the perfect amount of salt.  (They do make salt-free pretzels for those who are watching their salt intake.)

Most companies offer mail order through the web these days.  Here are some links to my favorite Pennsylvania pretzel companies.

Utz Snacks – Pretzelgirl’s favorite are sourdough twisted hard pretzels, but the “specials” are delicious too.

Unique Pretzels – Known for their “splits” – pretzels that split while baking giving them a unique crunch.  Dark Splits, with a slightly burnt taste, are especially good. 

Tom Sturgis Pretzels – a slightly less crunchy pretzel but equally delicious

Wege Pretzels – The classic hard sour dough are tasty and they make a yummy “honey wheat” as well.

 So, if you can’t find these brands in your local store, hop on the internet and order a bag, box or even better, a case… you’ll never be caught like me…..all out of pretzels.

    I go for those brick-hard, week-old pretzels that you get from malodorous New York street vendors with grease-smeared hands and hacking coughs. Don’t forget to sprinkle on the industrial salt!

    I , too, find myself without pretzels…a favorite salty treat. Living with a young man in the house who eats a bag in a sitting and places the empty back in the pantry…one never knows if “we’re all out” or well stocked”

    re: pretzels…..Not doin’ the street vendor pretzels since a bad experience with one at Byberry and Woodhaven! Dont ask! Current favs are the Snyders square little snaps and the little hard sourdough ones. Perfect for popping! (The soft ones would dry up out here in the desert, would the vendor!!)

    Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the net
    the easiest thing to take into account of. I say to you, I
    definitely get irked whilst other people think about
    concerns that they plainly don’t understand about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the highest and defined
    out the entire thing with no need side effect , other folks could take a signal.
    Will likely be again to get more. Thank you
