Martin's Handmade PretzelsMADE BY MARTIN'S PRETZELS IN AKRON, PENNSYLVANIA
Anyone who thinks that all pretzels are created equal has never had these pretzels. Saveur Magazine called Martin’s “perfect, the standard against which all pretzels should be judged.” And boy, do we ever agree.
It seems almost hard to believe that flour, yeast, salt and soda could transform into something so perfectly plump...so compellingly crunchy...so toasty... Clearly, there must be something in the water in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, where Martin’s pretzels have been hand-rolled, hand-twisted and hand-baked by Mennonites since 1935.
An institution at New York’s thrice-weekly Greenmarket since 1982, now even non-New Yorkers can get their hard pretzel fix. Your snack life will never be the same.
TIP OF THE TONGUE
Yes, these pretzels are perfect just as they are, but we can’t deny the compounded perfection that is peanut butter and pretzels. Or spicy caramel and pretzels. Or chocolate and pretzels. Or mustard and pretzels. Somebody stop us!
