  1. I'm not a fan of milk chocolate, but Kron Chocolatier in DC has thick pretzels dipped in milk chocolate and sprinkled with toffee. I'm sure they ship anywhere.

    1. Not fancy, but I love the dark chocolate covered pretzels at Trader Joe's.

        I was too embarrassed to post because she's looking for a gift but all other pretzels I've tried are sad and tasteless compared to TJ's (and I am one of the people who 'doesn't get TJ's - I go only for the pretzels).

          How crazy! Those are his favorite too. I buy them every trip to TJ's. I just wanted to get his something a little nicer for V-day.

          I love the chocolate covered pretzels from TJ's too. They are dangerously addictive.

            1. Not exactly a chocolate-covered pretzel, but Target sells chocolate-drizzled pretzel snack mix. In my opinion (as a devotee of chocolate-covered salty things) it is near perfect in its ratio of sweet to salty. I think it's Archer Farms Snack Mix "Chocolate Drizzle." I don't have a bag on hand (if I did, I'd have it IN hand!).

              Here's a link to some info and a photo:

                that link gave a rating of 1/5 for the snack mix! ;-D

                  Sadly, that was the only link found with an actual image of the product. I stand by my statement, and I've been waiting--impatiently--to buy some when I know there will be lots of people around to share the bag!!

                    well, i'm game to try it. salty and chocolate-y, i'm there!
