I have found the best hard pretzels in the world - Martins Pretzels ---- can only be ordered through their website - I love eatting my frozen yogurt or vanella ice cream with salted hard pretzels. Martin's are pure --- nothing artifical ---- and the salt ----- not sure what kind of salt they use but it better than any other salted hard prezel. I order by the box load. They come packed with limited breakage. Enjoy!!

  1. You can always come to New York and get them at the company's stand at Union Square Farmer's Market (4X a week year-round - makes for some cold pretzels in January!). Yum. I do agree that these may be the best I have ever had. Mixing up a bag of salted and unsalted yields a great feast for the palate. In a way, I can't believe I can get so excited about what is essentially flour, water and salt, but...
