The City Bakery’s Pretzel Croissant Ain’t No Pretzel
October 20th, 2009 by plumpdumpling

I didn’t love the pretzel croissant. It has its own website. People who care about food gush about it. But I was unimpressed.

It was flaky, buttery, light, and bread-flavoured, which are all of the things a croissant should be. So maybe the problem is that I like pretzels much more than I like croissants, and this was no pretzel. There was no thick pretzel skin, no dense pretzel insides, and no salt in sight, let alone the chunks of crystals I want to see.

But it was a good croissant, and I was still finding butter flavor trapped in between my fingers for hours after eating it. Don’t ask why I was licking between my fingers for hours.

    Man, oh, man. There’s nothing better than one of those dense, greasy, salty pretzels. They’re the only good thing about going to the mall, as far as I’m concerned.

      Don’t forget the cheese sauce.

    Again with the lack of pretzel salt on a would-be pretzel item! Are we the only ones who consider the salt essential?
