The hot soft pretzel, originally known in Germany as Laugenbrezel, gets its browned chewy skin and tender inner texture from a hot alkaline bath before baking. There’s an aroma from this neutralizing dip-to-bake process that causes a frenzy around pretzel stands. Now we can enjoy the aroma, flavor and texture while incorporating the benefits of whole grains into our Protective Diet Soft Pretzels and keeping the traditional flavor and technique alive. Enjoy them with soup, salad or alone dipped in mustard or Ultimate Cheeze Sauce for a high-energy after school kid-friendly snack.

OTC… Read more or comment “Thirty days ago today…”
I just wanted to encourage you if I can! Just a little over 2 years ago I was 300 lbs! I was super depressed and was thinking I would be overweight forever! I never saw the light at the end of the tunnel! I tried so many diets and failed! I may have lost some… Read more or comment “Kristie C.”
I was really scared to go cold turkey with the no oil no sugar thing, but I had been “trying” for months with no success!!
