5 Delicious Ways to Get Your Pretzel Fix
Sigmund’s Pretzel Chips
These “chips” are made from the leftover soft pretzels that are baker Lina Kulchinsky’s main product—but the buttery morsels are so addictively snackable that they’ve attracted plenty of fans in their own right. Grab ‘em straight out of the bag or toss into a salad in place of croutons.
To buy: $3.99 per bag, farmtopeople.com or sigmundnyc.com.
