By the time you are reading this, I am probably few thousand miles above the ground or probably had landed either Kuala Lumpur (KL) or Penang. Yeah, that’s right! I’ll be on a five days holiday trip to West Malaysia in less than 12 hours.
Anyways, not gonna bombard you with so many wordings and get straight ahead with the main topic of today. After much waiting since the opening of Auntie Anne’s, FRESHCO last October, I finally get to try the famous pretzels from Auntie Anne’s.
As much as I had heard, the queue was horrendous when it was first opened. I heard that their stocks ran out in within three days when they expected it’s gonna last them for about two weeks.
Jia had even queued for their pretzels about one and a half hours even though it was already one month after the official launching day. That was crazy for me so I did not bother to queue for their pretzels when the hype was still ongoing. The hype is still ongoing right now but it wasn’t as serious as before. I did waited for about 30 minutes for two pieces of pretzels though.
There were only about 6 to 7 patrons before me but I think I queued for almost 15 minutes before it was my turn make the orders. And then another 15 minutes waiting for the pretzels to be ready. The Cashier informed me that the waiting time shall be 7 minutes but no one bothered to tell me that my order was ready and I ended up waiting dumbly for another 8 minutes until I asked another Cashier if my order was ready.
In order to save the hassle and time explaining and informing patrons that they ran out out of cinnamon and almonds, they put a notice at the back of their POS system. I actually wanted to try Cinnamon Sugar but too bad they ran out of it. I’ll try my luck tomorrow when at 1Utama before catching our flight to Penang from Subang Airport.
These looked delicious but I don’t consume beef. So, it’s definitely out out of the question. But I had seen quite a lot of patrons ordering it. So, I guess the sight of generous amount of pepperoni over the pretzels must have caught their attention. LOL! Not sure how much was a Cheese Pepperoni priced, but I think it was roughly about B$3.20.
Original Pretzel | B$2.00 & Chocolate Chips Pretzel | B$2.30
I ordered Chocolate Chips Pretzel for myself and Original Pretzel for Sister. I think trying out their Original Pretzel is mandatory. To be honest, they were pretty good in my opinion. But for Sister who had tried the original version of pretzels from Germany thought that these weren’t authentic enough. But they were good if considered as bread. The Original Pretzel was buttery, salty and soft at the same time. The Chocolate Chips Pretzels came with generous portion of chocolate chips!
Honestly speaking, I think these pretzels were well worth the wait of 30 minutes albeit it wasn’t as authentic as the ones served in Germany but still good enough. I don’t mind trying Auntie Anne’s again but only when I felt like it to queue 30 minutes for a couple of pretzels. LOL!
