It comes as no surprise that descendents of the people who originally brought the soft pretzel to the United States would be the ones to produce a really great gluten-free soft pretzel.
“The Pennsylvania Dutch, who are actually of German descent, settled in Southeastern Pennsylvania in the 1600s and 1700s.” 1 “Southeastern Pennsylvania, with its large German population, is considered the birthplace of the American pretzel industry and many pretzel bakers are still located in the area. Pennsylvania produces 80% of the nation's pretzels, and the average Philadelphian consumes about twelve times more pretzels than the national average.”2
Dutch Country Gluten-Free Soft Pretzels were created specially for those who crave a great soft pretzel but have special dietary needs. Their gluten-free soft pretzels are available pre-baked and ship frozen. They freeze well and are easy to heat. The pretzels are definitely worth trying and make a great snack…in fact they would be a nice addition to the gluten-free offerings at Lincoln Financial Field and Citizens Bank Park.
