Looking for Pretzel Rods
I am looking to make chocolate caramel covered pretzels (similar to the ones you can get at Starbucks) but I'm having a hard time finding the longer, thicker pretzel rods, around 6 inches long. Any idea where I could find them? Co-op and Superstore don't appear to carry anything bigger than the skinny little guys.
You could try Costco, Zellers or Walmart. Seems to me I saw big pretzel rods or shapes in a jar at Costco a little while ago -- I could be wrong as I wasn't specifically looking for them, but I remember big pretzel items that were jarred. Hope this helps.
I just saw some at the Chinese market in the mall on 16th ave and Centre St N. The market used to be called Jay's but I can never remember the new name. There is only 1 in that mall, we were looking at the Pocky but noticed the pretzel rods beside them on the shevles at the cashier end of the snacks aisle. Other Asian markets like T&T might have a larger selection.
The persimmons and Chinese mandarins are dirt cheap there today.
