Comforting pretzels made from scratch, hand-rolled and baked fresh everyday. And it's been that way since "Auntie" Anne and Jonas Beiler first opened their stand in a farmers market in Downingtown, Pennsylvania back in 1988.
Twenty-six years later, each pretzel at every Auntie Anne's store is still made the same way, in more than 1,000 locations worldwide. And each time you pick up any of Auntie Anne's signature pretzels, you know its freshly baked. All the time. And with nineteen stores in the metro, getting your pretzel fix is as easy as heading to your favorite mall.
Auntie Anne's Original Soft Pretzel is made with just just five simple yet fresh ingredients, with each handcrafted pretzel cut and rolled, sprinkled with your favorite toppings, and baked in the oven. Fresh batches are made constantly to replenish the stocks at the counter.
With nine pretzel varieties to choose from, Auntie Anne's has one just for you. The Original Pretzel (P 50), the soft pretzel that started it all, and Specialty Pretzels (P 60), including Garlic, Chocolate Chip, Sesame, Sour Cream & Onion, and Cinnamon Sugar; to Premium Pretzels (P 65), with Glazin' Raisin, Almond, and Cinnamon Raisin. Each one pretzel perfect. Soft and chewy, the Original Pretzel is an ideal on the go snack, with a rich buttery flavor. The Specialty and Premium Pretzels kick up the flavors, from comforting garlic and sour cream with onion to a variety of sweet notes, like Almond, a personal favorite. It's also Auntie Anne's most popular pretzel variant, great with Auntie Anne's Caramel dip (P 25). Pair it with Auntie Anne's Brewed Coffee (P 65), Belgian Chocolate (P 50), or a refreshing Lemonade (P 60 Medium/P 70 Large) to complete your Auntie Anne's experience.
Or you can try something different. Like Auntie Anne's new Cream Cheese Sticks (P 75), in Original, Cinnamon, and Almond flavors. Using the very same dough of the signature pretzels, the rich cream cheese filling adds a whole new twist to the pretzel. Mildly salty and sweet, with the added rich texture and flavor from the cream cheese, this one is definitely a must try. And my new favorite at Auntie Anne's. Grab a box or two, seriously good.
Looking for small bites that pack a punch? Auntie Anne's got that covered. Auntie Anne's tasty Pretzel Nuggets, available in Original (P 55), Cinnamon Sugar (P 65), Sour Cream & Onion (P 65), and Almond (P 70) flavors. Each handcrafted nugget is baked to a golden brown, coated with your choice of flavor. Small bites with big flavors.
And the Almond-flavored Pretzel Nuggets are my choice, not too sweet with that comforting and subtle layer of salty notes blending perfectly with the almonds. Another light, on the go snack, ideal for those walks in the mall.
Looking for a heftier alternative? Auntie Anne's got that too. Go for one of Auntie Anne's Savory Pretzels, like the Pretzel Dog (P 95), a premium hot dog wrapped in Auntie Anne's pretzel dough. Your favorite hot dog with a pretzel twist, now how cool is that? The soft and chewy pretzel dough with the premium hot dog is another winning combo from Auntie Anne's. And it gets better...
You can have it with cheese too. Auntie Anne's Cheese Pretzel Dog (P 99), a quick on-the-go snack that's quite filling. This one's a meal in itself.
And here's a pretzel with a pizza twist. Auntie Anne's Pepperoni (P 75), topped with pepperoni and a rich cheese blend. Familiar yet different, with a hint of paprika and cayenne for spicy notes.
And it's time once again to replenish the pretzels at the counter with a freshly baked batch. And the cycle continues ay Auntie Anne's with made from scratch, hand-rolled pretzels baked fresh. Every day.
Auntie Anne's is located at the 2nd Floor, Glorietta 4, Palm Drive, Ayala Center, Makati or call 550-2526 for inquiries.
