Pretzel Baguettes at Whole Foods

Has anyone seen/tried the new soft pretzel baguettes they're selling at the Whole Foods on 14th and P Street?

I'm curious to know if they are good... they look interesting!

  1. Are they slightly bigger than a hot dog roll, like the ones I see sometimes at Harris Teeter?

    1. I was ->||<- close to buying one last night.

      1. I have bought the pretzel rolls at WholeFoods in Annapolis and they are excellent. Nice crunchy exterior with a soft center. Nice change for sandwich making. I would imagine that the baguette is similar just a different shape.

          Thanks for the thoughts! I'll have to try and pick one up tonight... any thought on what toppings are best?

            Haha, I impulse bought one today. It is already gone.

        2. I had a pretzel roll there last month that was excellent. I have been thinking about them recently actually because it was so good.

          1. I bought one this weekend -- pretty good, makes a change, but I wasn't crazy about it. A bit too dense and smooth for my taste - no air pockets.

              So, I took the $1.99 risk and bought a pretzel baguette. It looked a little bit too brown, but I had to try it. My husband came up with a great idea for it. I'm from Upstate NY and am a big fan of "white" hot dogs. They're made with pork, somewhat similar to a German Weisswurst, but better. We grilled up the dogs, and the pretzel baguette, topped with some shredded cheddder, and brown mustard. Highly recommend!!

                Before buying I'm sure you could have asked to sample it out.

                  This gives me the idea of getting it to make a ham and brie sandwich on pretzel bread like they have at the Greenbrier. Hubby really likes that and will be coming home from a long business trip soon, thank you!!!
