It’s question time… What’s the most popular pretzel company in America? If you guessed Auntie Annes, then you know a little something lol!
FACT: This extremely popular American franchise chain known as Auntie Anne’s Pretzels distributes a wide variety of pretzels under its own brand name.
Keep in mind that freshly made pretzels are best when you eat them while they are still warm (nothing better than a warm, soft pretzel)!
How to Heat up Auntie Anne’s Pretzels?
Set your oven temperature to 400°F. For best results, wet the pretzels outside, and then wrap in foil & heat for 3 minutes.
Reheating Auntie Anne’s Pretzel in the microwave with 4 easy steps!
FACT: Reheating pretzels in the microwave is a convenient option when time is of the essence… This is not my favorite method for reheating any food because you run the risk of harding & drying it out (especially pretzels).
For the best results, try warming the pretzels in the microwave, one at a time, in a dish that is appropriate for the microwave, with a damp paper towel covering each pretzel.
FYI: Warm the pretzel in intervals of ten seconds until it reaches your desired temperature. If you overheat your pretzel in the microwave for an extended period of time, it will become tough.
- Start by adding one pretzel to a microwave-safe dish
- Next, a wet paper towel should be used to cover your pretzel.
- Now, warm the pretzel in intervals of ten seconds until it reaches the desired temperature.
- As soon as they are removed from the microwave, they should be served.
Just so you know, the moist paper towel will generate steam, which will assist in reinstating moisture to the stale or dry pretzels. This also stops the microwave process from completely drying them out! More on this below ⬇️.
The Microwave Oven Has the Following Drawbacks:
The difficulty with using a microwave is that if you don’t use the paper towel method, the pretzel will get hard and dry… There is also the possibility of moistening the paper towel to an excessive degree, which would result in the pretzel becoming drenched and limp.
Even if you cover the pretzel with a damp paper towel and leave it in the microwave for an excessive amount of time, it is still possible that it may become tough and chewy.
FACT: The microwave is the most efficient technique to speed up the process of warming up your soft pretzel. Be sure to always follow the instructions given above when reheating so that it maintains its original flavor and texture.

Turn the temperature up to 300 degrees Fahrenheit in your oven. While the oven is heating up, sprinkle the pretzels with water using a spray bottle or drizzle a little water over the top to keep them moist and soft.
Heat the pretzels for 5 to 10 minutes in the oven once they have been wrapped in foil and heated. FACT: One further possibility is to bake the pretzels in a paper bag with water inside of it.
- Start by turning the temperature up to 300 degrees Fahrenheit in the oven.

- Finally, take the foil off the dish for the final 1 or 2 minutes of baking if you want it to have a slight crunch. Enjoy!
FACT: Pretzels that are freshly made and simply need to be warmed up a little bit are perfect for baking in the oven. Although the oven does have the potential to dry them out a little bit.
The water enters the system through this opening. It generates steam, which assists in maintaining the moistness of the pretzels (learn something new every day huh).

How to keep soft pretzels fresh for longer?
Before attempting to preserve their soft texture by placing them in an airtight container or covering them in plastic wrap, you should first allow your soft pretzels to reach room temperature.
FYI: You have up to two days to store them at room temperature. Keep in mind any pretzels that are going to be stored for more than 2 days should be frozen…
FYI: Pretzels that haven’t fully cooled down before packing should be avoided. The additional moisture will condense inside the container or wrapping, which will cause it to become soggy (can you say gross).
Reheating Frozen Pretzels | how to do it correctly!
FACT: Reheating soft pretzels that were either produced or purchased from a store and then frozen for later use is a very simple process to perform…
If you have a large batch of soft pretzels or have a lot of store-bought pretzels left over, freezing them is a wonderful option for storage because they keep up exceptionally well in the freezer and it is a convenient place to store them.
FYI: When it comes to reheating frozen pretzels, the most important thing to do is to allow the food to defrost before warming it. This will ensure that your pretzels don’t become soggy.
You may completely defrost the frozen pretzels by leaving them out at room temperature for a while. After they have been defrosted, you can reheat them in the oven, toaster oven, or microwave (my least favorite method), depending on your preference.
