childhood favorite snack

Auntie Anne’s Pretzels are one of the first “snack” I ever got to eat when I was a child. My dad would buy my sisters and I a pretzel whenever we’re out and we would fight over it. Ever since then, I’ve not eaten it until recently and it sure brought back my childhood memories.

It tastes the same as I remembered - slight crisp on the outside, warm and chewy on the inside with a generous amount of seasoning on the top. My favorite flavors are the sour cream and onion and the standard cinnamon sugar. However, the price does put me off a little for $4 a pop.

For the amount I have to pay, I wouldn’t get them as often as I’d like to, but maybe as a snack once in awhile.

My favourite Auntie

Auntie Annes Pretzels is one of the first and only Pretzel shops in Singapore. It has outlets in prime locations such as Ion Orchard and Parkway Parade.

My favourite flavours are Sweet almond and Sour cream and onion. The Pretzels are warmed before served and the staff are extremely generous with the flavouring - almost the entire pretzel is covered in sour cream and onion powder/ roasted almonds.

However, the pretzels are rather pricey! A pretzel costs average $4 and that’s the price of 2 plates of chicken rice from a hawker centre. I wouldn’t recommend Auntie Anne’s pretzels for those on a tight budget or for those looking for a filling meal, it serves more as an afternoon snack!

My Favourite since Childhood

Auntie Anne's never fails to bring my back to my childhood. Back then, I used to frequently have their Sour Cream & Onion Pretzel as a snack and sometimes even one wasn't enough! It is by far my favourite pretzel flavour of theirs. The sour cream & onion powder that coats the top of the pretzel has a light salty flavour that will keep you wanting more. The pretzel itself is also firm, yet chewy, and together, they form a perfect combo.

However, their other pretzels are pretty good too! These include their cheese, cinnamon, original and seaweed pretzels. When paired with their signature pretzel dips, they are pure heaven. The service too, is quite good. The staff are never rude and service is fairly quick.

One con about this place, though, is that it is rather pricey to patronise too often. Perhaps this can be reserved for special occasions or an end-of-week/month reward for yourself. When you do come here, though, do bring a bit more cash as they also serve pretty decent drinks to complement your pretzels with!

Occasional indulgence

I don't know of many places that sell pretzels in Singapore, but I can say that I do like Auntie Anne's pretzels when they're fresh and piping hot.

The pretzels are thick and soft to bite into when they've just come out of the oven, and they have an amazing taste. Personally, I love the cinnamon and sour cream & onion. To be honest, I am pretty sentimental about these pretzels as I've been having them since I was a child, but it says something when a child (with no sweet tooth) loves them.

However, I do find the pretzels a little too pricey for my liking. In addition, the the pretzels aren't that amazing after they have been left to stand for a while. They become soggy and tough, so mu advice would be to have them while they're freshly out of the oven.

That said, Auntie Anne's pretzels still makes for an amazing occasional snack.

Simply delicious and affordable too

I used to eat a pretzel from Auntie Anne's pretty much every day after my school which was located close to Suntec. It's holds a certain sentimental value to all the memories it brings back and one thing's for sure, the quality has definitely not been compromised over the year, they still have the subtle salty taste and the nice soft texture that one can never seem to be enough.

The pretzels are affordable and delicious. I don't see any fault in them besides the fact that I wish they would open more stores around the island.

Not the same as before

When I was young, my parents often brought me to Suntec City Mall for meals on weekends. Without fail, I would always drag them to Auntie Anne’s for my favourite cinnamon pretzel.

I remember the fragrance of the cinnamon spice and the sugar that simply melts in my mouth whenever I take a bite out of that crunchy goodness. It was simply heaven on earth. Even my parents, who shun overly sweet foods like the plague due to health concerns, give in to temptation.

However, I am rather disappointed to find that the standard of the pretzels have dropped, after years of not visiting Auntie Anne’s. The pretzels are no longer warm and crispy when you get them, and nowadays I find that my favourite cinnamon pretzel has way more sugar than spice on it, which is too sweet for my liking.

Prices are still fairly affordable, at about $3 a pretzel, which is about the price for a plateful of economical mixed rice. But I think for someone like me who has a huge appetite and is still schooling and hence limited pocket money, I’d rather spend my $3 on that plate of mixed rice.

Perhaps I will only get my pretzel fix when I am experiencing childhood nostalgia.

Always nice to come by and grab a pretzel for a quick bite!

Everytime I am about to leave Plaza Singapura, I will have to get myself a pretzel, should I take notice of it. I do not eat Auntie Anne's often though, but maybe that's why I like their pretzels so much!

Most of their flavours are savoury, especially the powdered flavours (that could be really messy so be careful when eating), like sour plum and cinnamon, both of which are my favourites.

The flavours that are less/not likely to cause any mess while you are munching on it would be seaweed, sesame seed and parmesan cheese, although at times you might feel that all you are really tasting is the pretzel, and not the flavour.

You can also purchase drinks and other quick bites there but I would rather get a drink from somewhere else as it is cheaper.

expensive and limited flavours

He brought me pretzel from Auntie Anne’s when I visited his workplace at Suntec City. It was cinnamon sugar with caramel dip. I cannot forget that day he brought me this pretzel and since then, whenever I visit him, I will buy pretzel.

Of course, the price of the pretzel dissuades me from buying at times. It is not cheap and the only flavor I buy is cinnamon sugar. And the dipping costs a dollar. But I love the smell of the bread and the size of the pretzel. The caramel dip was a great compliment to the cinnamon sugar pretzel as well. I suggest buying from the store at level 2 instead of the small kiosk at basement. The staff at level 2 is constantly present, unlike the one at basement where there is only 1 person manning the kiosk, which results in cold pretzels and slow service.

Slightly too expensive

Auntie Anne's pretzels come in several flavors for you to choose from. Thus far I've tried, sour cream & onion, cinnamon sugar, and green tea flavored pretzels. I am a lover of green tea, but however I felt that the green tea flavor did not at all standout from the pretzel, it felt like I ordered an original pretzel with a little sugary coat outside. I would definitely not recommend green tea lovers like me to try the green tea flavored pretzel.

Adding on, I find the price ($2.70 or $2.80) slightly too expensive thus I’d only buy it once in a while. For those who are tired of daily meals can try their pretzels out for a change as it turns out to be quite filling for people with small appetite. Anyway I'll revisit them to try out other flavors :)

Relatively healthy meal in a pretzel!

The pretzels at auntie annes are reasonably priced at less than 3 dollars and they can be healthy depending on the flavour you choose. So far I've only tried sour cream and onion and cinnamon sugar with caramel dip.
They are rather filling so if you are eating it as a meal, that would be a 2.80 meal! Their pretzels are baked and then coated with a little butter (I asked the shopkeeper) so they are not fattening at all. Then again, be wise with what you choose!
I like sour cream best because cinnamon sugar is a bit too sweet for me. They are usually very generous with the powder and my friend likes her sour cream and onion pretzel eaten with caramel dip! Haven't tried it but I'm sure it should taste pretty good with the mix of sweet and salty flavours.
