Auntie Anne's At Home Pretzel Kit Review & Giveaway - 8/22

Auntie Anne's got its start in 1988 with its delicious, hand-rolled soft pretzels. There is an Auntie Anne's located inside the mall in my town. Every time I go shopping at the mall, I have to stop by and grab me a freshly baked, delicious pretzel. The aroma alone is enough to entice me. I have yet to find a soft pretzel as delicious as the ones made at Auntie Anne's. The lemonade is also a great refreshing drink. Too bad they didn't offer gallon jugs to sell the lemonade in. I'd hop right on that bandwagon!

If there is not an Auntie Anne's located where you live, you can still enjoy the pretzels right in your own kitchen. Auntie Anne's offers products online, one of them being the Auntie Anne's Make-Your-Own Pretzel Kit. This kit allows you to mix, twist, and bake ten original or cinnamon sugar pretzels. The only supplies you need are vegetable oil, butter, and non-stick spray.

I gathered with my children to make our own pretzels with the At Home Kit. The kit gives detailed instructions on how to make and twist the pretzels. We had a super fun time making them. I have to admit that our pretzels didn't come out as perfectly twisted as the ones we get at the mall, but they turned out fairly close. When the pretzels were finished, we couldn't wait to get a taste of them. Once we did, we were not disappointed. The pretzels were just as good as the ones we get at the mall. I think the kids enjoyed them even more because they helped make them. I've got to tell you, I think this kit would make a special and unique gift for birthdays, holidays, and bridal showers.

I read that she (Anne) started making pretzels "to support her husband Jonas' vision to open a free counseling service for couples and families in their community". That was sweet of her!
