Part of my “Tastes Of Home” series. Unique Splits Pretzels in Reading, PA are the best. They’re not just an ordinary pretzel – Unique does something “unique” – extra yeast? Proof dough longer? – to make their pretzels bubble up in places and collapse to form pockets in other places. Those pockets trap oil when cooked forming a “split” and make the finished pretzel extra crunchy and flavorful. This was the taste of home I craved the most when I lived outside the area. My “Tastes Of Home” series celebrates food brands native to Berks County, Pennsylvania, Pennsylvania Dutch Country, and Greater Philadelphia – the area where I live.
