I'm a pretzel fanatic, and these are the best I've ever had. Hands down. They aren't stale and brittle like Snyders but rather have a firm crunch and then that hint of char that brings me right back to the streets of New York City with the hot pretzels over coals. Can't get enough. The only complaint is their economy level packaging. You are forced to choose between two unsatisfying alternatives. Either the 3 lb. jumbo bag that is apparently for commercial users, or the smaller 8oz bags that are made of super flimsy plastic. It tears apart at the slightest touch, making it annoying to deal with - salt falls out of the cracks and it's hard to keep the pretzels fresh. Hope you guys upgrade to packaging that's worthy of the product inside it.
Extra Dark Regular Salt, 3lb
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. The 3lb. bag of pretzels is sold in loose, bulk packaging.
In order to fulfill your order in the most timely matter, substitutions may be made with the 6-8oz. bags of the same variety.
Made in a facility that may contain packaged nuts or nut products.
I love these pretzels. There is always a lot of salt which adds to the crunch.
I am a HUGE fan of Uncle Jerry’s small bags in Whole Foods of Extra Dark. However, I had to remove (half) a star from my recent purchase because many pretzels in the bag were not extra dark, at least not in the same way/to the same extreme as the bags. Most of the pretzels still had golden brown to their color. HOWEVER- Let me be clear- that is not a bad thing***** Their regular pretzels have the same hardness and crunch I love and taste delicious. They just aren’t my “extra dark” personal preference. So, if there was one thing I would ask for, it’s quality checks on making sure the 3lb bag doesn’t look mostly golden brown. But people, I’m posting this review in the middle of a pandemic and I ordered them during the shut down itself, so. Take the review with a grain of salt, eh? (Pun intended) but seriously... what did I expect? I’d order again and try a second time. I’m a lover of their pretzels hands down. And am mindful of placing a “quality control” statement about an order placed during a government shut down. So. This is a 4.5 star review!! Or it would be, if I could’ve only taken away a half a star. I put in no comments or complaints on my order specifically because the pretzels are still delicious. And I am definitely eating them :)
I am so addicted! Just love them. Florida has nothing to come close to Uncle Jerry’s.
Buying in bulk gives me relief that they are always available. They accompany meals and snacks. With peanut butter slathered or with mustard or in place of any cracker with cheddar or with hard salami....wait, I'm making myself hungry.
we order three bulk bags at a time and go through them in a month ; just great, though i like a little less salt which is available Only pretzel my husband truly enjoys!!!!
Excellent if you love burnt pretzels Nice and salty
