PHILADELPHIA PRETZELS & NAUSTALGIA
Nov 19, 2020 | By Marilyn and Joel Greenwald
IN 1965 TO '69 WE WENT TO UNIVERSITY IN PHILA. AND FIRST EXPERIENCED THIS WONDERFUL AND UNIQUELY PHILA. FOOD. OVER THE LAST 50+ YEARS, WHENEVER WE'VE BEEN IN PHILLY WE BUY THEM, TO TAKE HOME, WHEREVER WE CAN. WE NOW LIVE IN CHICAGO AND THANKS TO PENNSYLVANIA GENERAL STORE WE CAN NOW HAVE AN ENDLESS SUPPLY AND HAVE PASSED ON THIS GREAT PHILLY TRADITION TO OUR SON AND GRAND DAUGHTER.
Was missing my Philly Soft Pretzels
Nov 5, 2020 | By Tom Fenstermacher
Although not quite the same as getting them from the dude standing on the side of the entrance to I95, these are great and bring back memories of my childhood in the Philly burbs.
Owner Response: Haha...Thanks for your feedback. Our pretzels are free from dude sweat and car fumes. :)
Fast and Fresh

The quicker you can have the pretzels sent to your home the better. I went with 2nd day air & they arrived promptly & in perfect condition/quality. The box they arrived in was quite sturdy & protective. Whether you microwave or use the oven in kitchen, either way, they will be just like you remembered...perfect...
Love our Soft Pretzels
Oct 29, 2020 | By Isabelle P. Gibson
This is our third purchase and as expected the pretzels arrived on time and are delicious. We froze most of them and have been enjoying them. We wrapped them individually so we can take out the desired amount as needed. Another purchase that was super!!! We will be back for more, for sure!
A little taste of Philly
Oct 22, 2020 | By Judy Ann Stacey
I grew up in Philadelphia. One of my fondest memories was of the soft pretzels we would get in school during recess. The pretzels from PA General Store bring back those memories. Very authentic Philadelphia.... from Philadelphia to Maryland (my home now)!
I was missing my taste of home
Oct 7, 2020 | By Tom
Born and raised in the Philly burbs, I miss buying soft pretzels from one of the dudes standing on the side of the road. Now that I have moved across the country, this is the closest that I can get to that experience.
Owner Response: Thank you for placing your recent order with the Pennsylvania General Store. We're happy we could bring back memories of home.

We purchased soft pretzels for my uncle who lives in Atlanta and is a huge Philly pretzel fan. The process was seamless and the order arrives quickly and fresh.
Aug 22, 2020 | By Leo Ott
The pretzels are delicious. They are tender with a "meaty" texture. I expected salt with order but was surprised that mustard was also included. Thank you PA General Store!
Great birthday surprise
Aug 20, 2020 | By Kathryn Weiland
I got the soft pretzels for my husband's 40th. He was born and raised in the Philly area and was so surprised when they came. We froze them for a few days and reheated in the oven with some salt. Add some mustard (provided) and they were perfect!
Pennsylvania General Store

Ordered pretzels for my son and his family! They were fresh and delicious. Customer service is the best I've ever encountered.
Owner Response: We're glad to hear your son and his family enjoyed the soft pretzels.
Aug 6, 2020 | By Frank
This was a perfect gift that was enjoyed by the recipient! Authentic philly pretzels with reliable shipping and delivery!
Delicious soft pretzels!!!!
Aug 6, 2020 | By Chrissy
I was so excited to find your website and that you delivered freshly baked soft pretzels! My son LOVES soft pretzels and this made his day!!! I have already referred you to so many of my friends. Thank you!!!
Owner Response: Thank you for your kind words. We shipped a lot of soft pretzels last week.
Just like home
Jul 16, 2020 | By Kim O
As a PA native, I have missed the original soft pretzel; down here in VA they like to use gourmet dough and put cinnamon and all sorts of other condiments on them. I like them big, salty and with mustard please. Just like the Pennsylvania General Store delivered. Only down side was not being able to defrost one at a time because they came all together frozen. Just means I might eat more in one setting than I should. LOL.
Owner Response: We're happy to hear the soft pretzels were still frozen when they arrived which means the packaging worked. You can defrost them, break them apart, and then re-wrap and re-freeze them in appropriate quantities.
The best way to get Philly soft pretzels from afar!
Jul 11, 2020 | By Kevin Mintz
I have family in the Philadelphia area and the best part of my childhood visits was getting fresh soft pretzels. Pennsylvania General Store allows me to indulge in my favorite baked good without having to leave my home. I ordered two dozen Philadelphia soft pretzels on Wednesday and they arrived seamlessly the next day. These pretzels ship and freeze well so you can have a taste of Philadelphia whenever you want. Particularly in the midst of the pandemic, it has been rejuvenating to have a taste of a childhood treat whenever I need something to raise my spirits. Order today, you won't be disappointed!
Owner Response: We are happy to be able to ship Philly soft pretzels that bring back your childhood memories.
Not as good as last order
Jun 25, 2020 | By Suzie
I have ordered these pretzels four times before. They were a nice golden color and good sized pretzels. This order the pretzels were dark brown and small. Was very disappointed they looked half the size of my other orders and very brown. I don't think I will order these again as I don't want small dark pretzels plus 22 dollars to ship them is getting very steep. Cost 57 dollars for24 small dark pretzels. Sorry I loved these pretzels but not this time.
Owner Response: We're sorry you were disappointed with the soft pretzels you received. Due to the pandemic, our regular baker was closed so we had to find a substitute. Recently, our regular baker started baking again so we now can ship the pretzels you remember.

Taste of Home
Jun 18, 2020 | By Nico Campopiano
Great treat for the family. A little reminder of home. Website was easy to navigate and the service was great!
Owner Response: We're glad we were able to help bring back memories of home.
Great gift idea
Jun 13, 2020 | By Grace Varghese
Sent this to a friend of mine in Ny, it got there very quickly and they loved it so much.
Owner Response: We're happy to hear your friends loved the Philly soft pretzels.
May 28, 2020 | By Scott H Senter
The pretzels are as good as if we picked them up at the store in Pennsylvania. Just toss in Air Fryer to reheat and they are good to go.
Owner Response: Clever idea to use the Air Fryer. We're glad you enjoyed the soft pretzels.
Tastes like Home
May 26, 2020 | By Chris S.
Pretzels arrived fresh and tasty. Reminded me of grabbing a bag on the way to my Mom-Mom's in the NE. Only complaint would be bag of salt had busted in box.
Owner Response: Philadelphians are very loyal to the Philly soft pretzel. I'm sorry your salt bag broke. As always we are happy to replace it, just give us a call!
May 23, 2020 | By Linda Kuehnle
We sent your 24 package of pretzels to my brother for his 65th birthday. He does not live in the area anymore and Philly pretzels have always been a big favorite of his! He was thrilled with the quality of the pretzels and the easy prep. He also commented on how well they were packaged and sent us a picture.
Owner Response: We're happy we were able to assist you in celebrating your brother's birthday with such a special reminder of Philadelphia.
Surprising Faraway Friends
May 23, 2020 | By Rebecca
I have sent these pretzel packages to several friends across the country. It's a great way to surprise them with a taste of Philly and support a Philly local business at the same time! Everyone has loved receiving them - especially during the quarantine!
Owner Response: Thank you for supporting a Philly local business. We're happy that the soft pretzels were a hit.
Awesome job!! Exactly what I wanted and expected.
May 16, 2020 | By JAY GREENBERG
I am originally from Philadelphia and craving for the best Philly Pretzel that I could get shipped. Shipped fresh and tasted just like if I was in Philly and just baked that day. Froze left overs following directions and still tasted fresh when defrosted. Thank you pageneralstore!
Pretzels are a Blessing!!
May 14, 2020 | By Rene
I would like to thank you for making my daughter-in-laws day (or maybe her month). She is actually from Jersey just across the river. My son was telling me that she is extremely homesick. This whole pandemic thing is making travel a bit complicated. I thought I would have a little bit of home delivered to her doorstep. When she opened it my son said there were TEARS!! Happy tears!!! So again, thank you very much!!!

May 14, 2020 | By Charles Conyers Jr
DELICIOUS!!!! Scale of 1-10,these are a14.Only down side is s&h.
May 13, 2020 | By Thomas Cowhey
Great Pretzels, lasted well
May 11, 2020 | By Edward Burke
I love these pretzels. I am not sure how to apply the salt for best results?
Owner Response: We're happy to hear you loved the soft pretzels. With respect to applying the salt: (1) to enjoy them the day you receive them, simply moisten the top of the soft pretzel with a damp paper towel, sprinkle with the enclosed coarse salt and reheat in a preheated 200 degree oven or microwave on high in 15 second intervals just till warm or (2) if you freeze the pretzels, you should bring them to room temperature before reheating as described above.
May 10, 2020 | By Damon
My wife is a huge soft pretzel fan and I ordered these as a surprise for Mother's Day. Shipping was fast and easy (although $22 felt a bit much) but the pretzels are inedible. They came straight inside and we tried the first couple that night, following the oven directions. They are very dry and almost too tough to chew, like they've been overheated in a microwave. Unfortunately the rest are heading for the trash. Reading the reviews it seems like this was a fluke, but it's still very disappointing to pay $57 for pretzels we can't enjoy.
Owner Response: I'm very sorry to hear that you were disappointed. We will gladly refund you or send another batch!
May 10, 2020 | By MP
These were a gift and the recipient said they were awesome, delicious, fresh and brought back memories of Philadelphia!
Owner Response: We agree with your recipient. A Philly soft pretzel does bring back memories to those who have moved away.
Pretty awesome... but....
May 7, 2020 | By Shari Boyd
Id love it if you created a smaller batch of just the soft pretzels I thought 24 wouldnt be too bad til I ordered and now my freezer is full bahahaahah Also... to the lovely Miss Ellen that helped me get SALT - THANK YOU! They are soooo much better with!! :) You are getting 5 stars for customer service - but PLEASE consider maybe a 10 pack?
Owner Response: Thanks for your feedback. We will take that under consideration!
May 7, 2020 | By Diane Leneghan Tomb
I have sent pretzels to my sister a nurse in Boca Raton, FL & daughter in LA during COVID-19 to cheer them up. Both loved the pretzels and it reminded them of home!

Pretzels Just Like I Remember
Apr 19, 2020 | By Bryan Romig
Ordered the soft pretzels for family members and they brought many memories of times we spent going to Philly and the sporting events. Tasted just like we remembered!
Remembering my past
Apr 17, 2020 | By Gene kershner
The one thing most of Americans have in common these days is plenty of time to reminisce about the past. So I started to think about foods I loved growing up in southeastern Pennsylvania, High school in Boyertown and college at Kutztown State, so the top list was soft pretzels from Philly smoked ring bologna from Brooks Brothers, shoofly pie from home as my favorite three. I went on line and discovered the Pennsylvania General Store and ordered soft pretzels for my whole family and became an instant hero. The pretzels were fantastic.
Apr 17, 2020 | By Sue
Sent a pretzel gift to my brother who is in NY , alone during a pandemic at Easter. My brother was over joyed by getting something he missed so much! Thank you for putting a smile on his face during such a grim time!

Wow! So yummy!! Soft, warm and delicious with just a few seconds in the microwave!

It's so nice to be able to get fresh Philly pretzels in DC especially during these trying times.
Mar 19, 2020 | By John Weisgerber
We ordered a shipment for our son and his family as a gift. They were enthusiastically received. I am fairly sure that all were consumed with no leftovers for the next day that had to be frozen. We will definitely have to get a second shipment so I get a taste to remind me of growing up in the Philadelphia area!
I miss my soft Philly pretzels
Feb 26, 2020 | By Barkeen Caldwell
I wish the philly favorite was available in Richmond VA, I miss that warm soft pretzel.
A taste of home!
Feb 15, 2020 | By Kevin Orr
A huge THANK YOU to the PA General Store for shipping product out of state! This was my first order...but I'll be ordering again when I need another "taste of home"! 2 day shipping is great!
Growing up in Philly

Left Philly for good in 1972, but always missed Philly Pretzels. This past order has filled the gap with more orders to come!
Great soft pretzels!
Feb 14, 2020 | By Frederick Dewey
Ordered 48 soft pretzels from PGS-arrived promptly and fresh. Froze them two to a zip lock bag and now enjoy them on a regular basis. I think they are just as good after freezing as they are fresh.
Love my Philly pretzels

Excellent service and food!
Awesome Service and Product
Jan 23, 2020 | By Karen Ott
I had made a mistake with my billing address when ordering, but it was caught and promptly taken care of. The pretzels were a gift to my daughter in Las Vegas. When she received them, she called and practically drooled over the phone. Being from the South Jersey area, there is nothing else like an authentic soft philly pretzel. Thank you.
Dec 28, 2019 | By Kathy Lovell
Got them for Christmas gifts for husband and grandchildren and what a big hit....they wanted to forget the holiday meal and just have the pretzels! Will definitely order again...and soon.
Dec 20, 2019 | By Jenny Rudewicz
Came individually wrapped and with some mustard packets! Easy to reheat and taste like you just got them fresh. So good we are going to order some more!
Dec 20, 2019 | By Clara white

Pretzels arrived fresh; pull one out of the freezer, dab on some water, put on the salt, microwave for 30 seconds.......WOW! Reminds me of Philly. Can't get these south of the Mason/Dixon; Thanks!!!
Owner Response: Hello James, thank you for the review! We are so happy that you enjoyed those Philly soft pretzels! There's no better comfort food!
Oct 18, 2019 | By Mike T
I was very happy with the gift box of soft pretzels I ordered online and sent to my sister who was once a Philly girl but now lives in West Virginia. I appreciate the convenience of sending a couple dozen pretzels with one online order, rather than having to go to the store myself, then box and mail the pretzels myself.
Oct 7, 2019 | By Joan Connor
Felt like I was in Bavaria. Not only did the pretzels arrive in 2 days, but they were the hit of my Oktoberfest party. Will re-order. Danke

We were really looking for orthodontic pretzels from Pennsylvania I saw this online I decided to give them a try they are awesome when I warm them up in my airfryer they were crispy on the outside tender on the inside and the salt and must have came with them which is a great additional item making them even better I will be ordering again
Soft pretzels are great.
May 9, 2019 | By Raymond H Brungard
I have received your soft pretzels twice as gifts and now we order them ourselves. They make the perfect afternoon or evening snack and they taste wonderful. I suppose we'd use them at parties if we would have any left by the time they got here.
Owner Response: Hello Raymond, We are so happy to hear that you enjoy our soft pretzels. Here's a great snack idea for your next party!! Our delicious soft pretzels topped with thinly sliced pieces of Weaver's Kutztown Ring Bologna (available in beef, regular, & garlic flavors), & shredded LeRaysville Cheddar Cheese toasted in a broiler with a little Betsy Lantz's Hot Sweet Dipping Mustard? You can dice up the pretzels, arrange on a tray, and serve. This combination is absolutely DELICIOUS and a party favorite!
Pretzels were a hit!
May 2, 2019 | By Katie Quinn
We ordered 100 soft pretzels for Pretzel Day at work. They arrived the exact day as specified and after one night in the freezer and 4 hours defrosting, they were delicious after a spin through our toaster. Hot and crunchy on the outside, chewy and dens eon the inside. Great product and service! How many days until the next Pretzel Day? ;)
Owner Response: Hello Katie, EVERYDAY is National Pretzel Day at the Pennsylvania General Store!!!! Let us know when we can ship another batch of soft pretzels your way!!
Fast Shipping, Great Quality
