The pros: Trader Joe’s Big Soft Pretzels are new to shelves and have the salt package already in the bag so you decide how much or how little is best for you.
The cons: Four pretzels in a bag, but the bag can’t be resealed.
I love pretzels and Trader Joe’s has sold pretzels before. The last time I tried them from Trader Joe’s they were sold with in the bread aisle, but did not contain any salt packet.
The biggest down side to that product (aside from the lack of salt) was that it, like so many other bread products, would go moldy if you did not use it right away.
So by keeping this item frozen, you’ll be keeping it fresh. The bag can’t be resealed and there are four pretzels in a bag.
Minor packaging complaints aside, what came out of my toaster oven was crisp on the outside and tender on the inside. It’s everything a pretzel should be.
I do like the fact that these are not pre-salted and you can add as much or as little as you like. For those who want a really salty pretzel, then the salt pack is a generous size to make sure you can have a very salty pretzel.
I enjoyed mine with some pub cheese (and got my husband hooked on the stuff in the process). There were no complaints from either one of us. More notably we’ve now eaten two of these packages.
For $2.49 for four these are reasonably priced, made in Germany and are a good pretzel. So while they are a similar product to what has been offered in the past, it is still a good product.
