Soft pretzels can be very good or very bad (aka soggy, no flavor). When they are good, they are crisp on the outside, soft in the middle, with a small amount of salt. These pretzels exist at the Philly Pretzel Factory
in Clifton Park.
The pretzels are extremely affordable, you can buy a whole bag of the pretzels, eat all of them or save some for later. We usually do that and stash them in the freezer. They heat up wonderfully in the toaster oven.
