If you're a regular reader of the blog, you may have noticed that I love pretzels. So when I found out that Metropolitan Bakery added a whole wheat fennel pretzel to their menu, I had to seek one out. Super chewy, with great fennel flavor - like a soft taralle. A great twist on a local favorite.

I don't discriminate, I love equally bobo whole wheat fennel varieties, buttery Amish pretzels, my beloved pretzel croissant, and the original Philly classic from the Philly Soft Pretzel Factory.

Our friend who grew up in Northeast Philly turned us on to the place and we still find ourselves veering off I-95 to visit the original location on Frankford Avenue. But the factory has now grown to have franchise locations all over the mid-Atlantic. You can't beat hot pretzels fresh from the oven, and you really can't beat the price - 3 for $1, 20 for $5, 100 for $20, and on it goes...
