It was a little disappointing knowing I made a pretzel and they don't cook it for you.they did show us how to do it and baking would have been an extra hoot.

This place says that you can twist your own pretzel...and you can, but they won't bake it for you to eat. To be fair, we were told this before we paid for anything. The pretzels we purchased were good.

I was able to get to the store before they closed and luckily they had some pretzels in the warmer. The shop is kind of bare bones which is fine with me. It shows they just concentrate on their product. The girl was very nice who helped me. The pretzels were fresh and really good. They are big and are... More

Small shop right in center of Amish country. Great pretzels and conveniently situated next to other shops and attractions.

We stopped here for a snack while visiting the area. The shop is very small and does not offer a great variety, however we did purchase regular pretzels and sugar cinnamon pretzels and they were absolutely delicious! We did not realize there were tours available or we would have stayed. There were no signs regarding tours in the shop. You... More

Stopped by here while visiting the Lancaster area (not too far from Kitchen Kettle Village). The pretzels tasted average (not a lot of taste to them). My son and I enjoyed the root beer mustard and root beer on tap (nice touches). My daughter was disappointed in how the cheese tasted. It was beer cheese and it was very watery.... More

We have always had very good experiences here, however this time we did not. The store itself was bare, with nothing really on the shelves, as well as around 4 pretzels made. There was no dough for pretzel making and staff was not very friendly. Hoping that since it was off season, maybe this was just an off day.

Hey knbsmom- You may have noticed that we are a different store than you've visited in the past. We don't carry spices, cinnamon, or greeting cards. Just pretzels. We've got full shelves of hard pretzels, chocolate covered pretzels, and a few gift items (including great t-shirts and ornaments for the holidays.) We keep our warmer with FRESH pretzels- not old...

We stopped there as part of a senior bus trip. The tour was very informative, and personally I enjoyed rolling the pretzels, I also know that I could never do it for a living. I have no patience. The women who demonstrated had the patience of a saint showing and reshowing the two techniques. Kids would be in their glory.
