What Are the Best Hard Pretzels?

by | Jun 10, 2021


I love to snack on hard pretzels and over the past few years I’ve been noting which pretzels stand out. Here’s my list of the best hard pretzels I’ve come across:

1. Quinn’s Whole Grain Sea Salt Pretzels


I recently bought these at Whole Foods and was completely blown away by how good they were. My wife and I devoured them.

2. Trader Joe’s Gluten Free Pretzel Twists


Years ago I mistakenly bought these gluten-free pretzels (I have no issues with eating gluten) and quickly fell in love with their texture and taste. They are now a staple in our household. Being gluten-free, however, they taste different than what you may be used to and I realize they may not be for everyone.

3. Dot’s Homestyle Pretzels

Shop Dot's Pretzels | Shop Dot's Online | The Tastiest Snack in Town!

These pretzels are seasoned and are ridiculously good.

4. Snyder’s of Hanover Old Tyme Pretzels


Snyder’s makes great pretzels. These classic pretzels are among my favorites.

5. Trader Joe’s Pumpernickel Pretzel Sticks


These Trader Joe’s pretzels are just bursting with flavor.

Honorable Mentions:

I’d love to hear what your favorite pretzels are — please share with us in the comments below

  2. Utz Sourdough ‘Original’ Pretzels

  3. From the Ground Up Cauliflower Pretzel Sticks. The perfect amount of salt and tasty.

  4. Almost criminal that Dot’s are only third!

  5. Used to be a Snyder’s man, until I discovered Unique. Now I get a case shipped to my house as needed! https://www.uniquepretzels.com/

  6. No Martin’s? https://www.martinspretzels.com/

    Blows away any mass produced pretzel. Used to buy them from the green market on Union Square in Manhattan, but now have them shipped since I moved away.

    They also lost a factory to a fire in December and have been rebuilding. Great people… Great pretzels…
