If you’re anything like me, you spent a lot of weekends during your teen years at the mall. Though my allowance was barely enough to buy a “BFF” necklace, I didn’t care, because all I really wanted was an Auntie Anne’s pretzel. Those were the days, when the hardest part of my Saturday was deciding which delicious Auntie Anne’s pretzel I would enjoy. Would I go with the tasty sweet cinnamon sugar, or maybe the classic original? Even today, whenever I am in a mall and I catch a whiff of that delicious, mouth-watering aroma of freshly baked pretzels, I get nostalgic and quickly make my way to the nearest Auntie Anne’s.

Auntie Anne’s opened their first stand 25 years ago and even after all those years, they continue to keep things fresh and shape memories all over America with new pretzel flavors and styles. Just in time for February’s Heart Health month Auntie Anne’s Pretzels is responding to Americans’ craving for more whole grains by introducing a new hand-rolled whole grain soft pretzel to its line of freshly-baked products.

The Honey Whole Grain Pretzel, which packs a hint of honey sweetness and real whole grain dough, boasts one daily serving of whole grains, six grams of fiber and just 300 calories (260 without butter).  It has also been labeled with the Whole Grains Council stamp of approval because it contains 67 grams or more of whole grains per serving.
