Brēzel Pretzels – Rolled Up Goodness
When Brittany Baum and Maria Gentile met, they were working in the communications world together. After a few years, they became great friends and discovered they shared a passion for cooking and a love of pretzels. Brittany has been to Germany a few times and “fell in love with Bavarian pretzels.” The two decided to start perfecting recipes and selling them and brēzel Pretzels was born. Brēzel is an old German word for pretzel. They picked a unique name for their company because they wanted people to know that they are different. Brēzel pretzels are made in the Bavarian style which means “they are bigger and more bread-like than a stadium soft pretzel.”
Eventually they would like to open up a shop in Columbus to make and sell their pretzels. But for now, you can order them online, and also find them at a few local farmers’ markets. Rad Dog is also selling a “pretzel bun” they have created. They say that the farmers’ markets have been a wonderful experience, leading to sold out booths every time! They will be at the Clintonville Farmers’ Market on Saturday mornings this October if you’d like to go try one.
Their best selling flavor is their Original Pretzel, and they also make artichoke, garlic and kalamata (all in one), jalapeno, apple cinnamon, spring onion, slow roasted tomato & basil, and habenero. All of their pretzels are their own original recipes and are handmade without using animal products. Prices range from $13 to $16 for a half dozen to $25 to $32 for a full dozen.
