Charles Pretzels

Taste: These knotted pretzels were somewhat thick and quite large, with some pieces nearly four inches across. One nice touch was that the shapes were far less consistent than you typically see with knotted pretzels these days; some pretzels had their two large loops quite different in size. That was the first sign that these pretzels were actually knotted, rather than stamped out into knot shapes. The second sign was that a close look at the center of any particular pretzel revealed quite clearly the actual knot where the strip of dough had crossed over itself. We crunched in to find that the taste didn't quite live up to the looks, as it was more average, with a somewhat doughy taste and a below-average level of salt. Still, a nice effort at keeping the pretzels old-school.
