Auntie Anne's Japan
Soft pretzels go well with things like mustard or cinnamon and sugar, but in Japan, the Auntie Anne’s soft pretzel chain has been experimenting with some unconventional pretzels, and they look pretty amazing.
According to Rocket News 24, Auntie Anne’s newest limited-edition flavor is a matcha cheesecake pretzel stick. It is a stick, not a knot, of pretzel dough that is stuffed with a layer of matcha green tea cream and a layer of cheesecake. The whole thing is topped with a layer of crushed almonds.
The new snacks might be stretching the definition of “pretzel” a bit, but they look pretty interesting. Unfortunately, as yet they’re only being offered in Japan.
Auntie Anne’s units in Japan also have a limited-edition frozen matcha dessert drink to go along with the pretzel sticks, and a matcha latte that’s a regular menu item.
