Philly Soft Pretzels In Mercer County NJ

Had the opportunity to try Two Soft Pretzels Places in Mercer County Yesterday.

Philly Pretzel Factory
691 Rt 130 Suite C
Robbinsville NJ 08691

Here the people were happy and the pretzel hot!
Now I tried the chocolate dipping sauce, not for everyone, I know, chocolate tasted like Hershey Syrup, not bad but not the best chocolate selection.
Next time looking forward to the Cinnamon Sugar Pretzel.
Pretzel .75
Chocolate Dipping Sauce .75
Since it was my first time there, the nice guy said make it a buck and we'll call it even, hope to see you again.
Happy Experience!
Philly Pretzel Stop
2222 Rt 33
Hamilton NJ

Here the pretzel was cold!
Tried the chocolate dipping sauce which tasted like bad chocolate pudding, surely they must have a professional pretzel dipper taster? With all due respect - Come on you can do better than that!

Pretzel Cost 1.50
Maybe next time will try one of their sandwiches on Pretzel Rolls

Just letting everyone know that these places are out there!
Preferred the pretzel at Philly Pretzel Factory.
Yes for traditional folk both places had a variety of mustards to choose from.

Happy Eating!

  1. Just today I went to Philly Pretzel Factory on Rt 35 in Eatontown. I bought three pretzels for $1.50 - great deal, right? Well, two of my little ones had warm, fresh, yummy pretzels and I had one that could've been used as a weapon. It was rock hard! However, in terms of chocolate sauce - what about a little bit of Nutella? That would be yummy!

      Here is a post for the Eatontown Store in Monmouth County NJ - LOVE the post name

      Nutella - sounds like a great idea, will have to test that theory :)

    2. I'm def a pretzel freak. I like this chain, but have to say that the pretzels from the shops that actually IN Philly are much, much better. Go figure! But its nice to have a little piece of the city close by. Pretzel roles are a fave, btw.

      1. The SuperPretzel brand of soft pretzels isn’t bad. They’re in the frozen food section of most grocery stores. They come with a bag of course salt. You wet the pretzel first and then dip it into the salt. The water makes the salt stick. Microwave according to the instructions add a little mustard and you could be on South Street.

            Kind of like comparing Lender's to real bagels. They are edible, but not a shining example of the genre.

        1. I think there's one on Whitehead Rd Trenton on the left before you hit Bus. Rte 1.
