I've been eating gourmet pretzels for years, and I've never had better than these. I used to pick up a certain other Pennsylvania brand from the Union Square Greenmarket but stumbled upon Uncle Jerry's in a Bushwick bodega. These are heaven -- always fresh (never yellowed or getting stale in the bag) with a deep savory flavor and, of course, satisfying crunch. They don't hold back with the darkness either, which I love. I now live in Atlanta and get them shipped down here. Unbeatable.
Extra Dark Regular Salt
For those who crave the well-done snack, here's your pretzel. The Extra Dark variety has set us apart because of its unique finish: a slow-baked, blackened version of our Specials.
SPECIAL NOTE: The 3lb. and 6lb. bags of pretzels are sold in loose, bulk packaging. The 3lb. and 6lb. bags are not single, sealed bags. In order to fulfill your order in the most timely matter, substitutions may be made with the 6-8oz. bags of the same variety.
We have ordered the 3 lb box of Uncle Jerry's Extra Dark Pretzels over and over again. They are so fresh! They are truly the only pretzels that we crave. The nice thing about the 3 lb box is there's a nice mixture of salty (for me) and not as salty (for my wife and daughter). The 3 lb box is just the right amount to keep fresh until they are gone. When I say gone, I mean to the last bit of broken pieces that are always at the bottom. If you are a pretzel nut like we are, these are the best!!!
I am a pretzel addict and Uncle Jerry's definitely satisfies my fix! So great to have them delivered to my home! They are definitely the absolute best pretzels I've ever had! Will definitely buy again!
Have to give a 4 instead of a 5, used to buy these regularly when I lived in NJ in the late 90's......... and just purchased a case. Not all the pretzels are as dark as I remember them and are quite salty. If I buy them again, think I'll try the low salt variety.
These are the best hard pretzels on earth. I can't believe I didn't know about them sooner. All those years eating mediocre pretzels when these were available. A recent discovery and a significant improvement late in life.
Everyone else has extolled the qualities of these pretzels. I concur. What I want to add is this. Over the years I have ordered these pretzels, the quality, the size, the baking to perfection, the ingredients have remained consistent. That is exceptional for any company.
I love crispy breads, and while a pretzel isn't a loaf, it is bread-like. The Extra Dark is nice and rich, probably like dark brew coffee is rich. This is the first time I've bought directly from the manufacturer, rather than at the store, and there's a slight chemical flavor which I don't care for, hence 4 and not 5 stars. I'm hoping the next bag will taste like what I've gotten at the store.
Reg salt extra dark pretzels were a little too salty for my taste so I tried low salt but then they had zero salt so I guess I'll stick to reg salt, love them though!
Extra dark, low salt pretzels are the bext pretzels, ever. I'm a pretzel fiend and most pretzels I've tried are either too salty, not salty enough, and not dark enough for me. Uncle Jerry's are exactly right, pretzel heaven.
Best pretzels every ! This is my 3rd or 4th order .. I love my pretzels dark with just a little (low) salt and Jerry's doesn't disappoint .. the bags come very well packed to virtually eliminate breakage. No more store brands for me !
