I'm usually a fan of the extra dark low-salt variety but decided to try these out my last visit.
Holy cow, was I not disappointed. These are exactly what I wanted in a whole wheat pretzel - a low salt, super-crunchy, high fiber pretzel with a light, almost slightly sweet, flavor.
I'm the type of person who reads my ingredients lists and nutrition labels. These guys get the pass. Most other "whole wheat" pretzels will have a measly amount of fiber, high salt, and some other filler ingredients added for artificial flavor. Not these. The flavor truly comes from the pretzel and simple, high quality ingredients.
If you are trying these for the first time, note that whole wheat flour does have a different flavor and texture profile than the traditional unbleached wheat flour. People reporting these pretzels are "dry" are in fact describing the texture of the whole wheat flour. Be ready for that.
Thank you Uncle Jerrys for offering top tier pretzels to us pretzel connoisseurs.
ps. these have almost 10% Daily Value of fiber per pretzel. if you plan on binge-eating most of the bag, make sure your digestive system and accompanying appliances are prepared.
Our first time having pretzels in over a year. We switched to a whole food plant based lifestyle oil free lifestyle and one of the things we missed. So much was a crunchy pretzel. They are absolutely addicting in the best way possible and as I write this, I realize I need to make another order:)
Ours were very hard to bite into. I won’t be ordering more. Sorry, because we love oil-free products that are whole food plant-based. These could have been over-baked.
I love the dark, low salt, which I consistently get. However, I wanted to give the whole wheat a try. Dry as dust. When I sent an email to customer service, suggesting I'd send them back and would even ship them in exchange for the dark, low salt, I was told I could get a 20% discount on my next order if purchased by early October, and should donate the whole wheat. Not the best response, I must say. Fair chance I'll buy my pretzels elsewhere. Sorry Uncle J.
From Uncle Jerry's: Thanks for your honest review! That is correct, per our shipping and returns policy on our website and in the terms and conditions customers agree to in checkout, we do not offer refunds simply because you didn't like the taste. We do recommend customers new to a specific variety purchase the variety case, so they can opt for just one or two bags and fill the rest with their favorite variety! We also hate to see good food go to waste when there are so many in need- that's why we ask to donate!
I have been buying whole wheat low salt pretzels for the past year. Uncle Jerry’s Pretzels is one of the very few companies that make pretzels without oil and offer a whole wheat variety. They are crunchy and not steal. I cannot have added oils in the foods I eat. They are consistently good.
We're proud about our
