Archer Farms Pretzel Buns

As pretzel buns go, these aren't very pretzelly. They're more like regular white bread—which was slightly stale in our case—with a very thin, leathery pretzel shell. Not particularly appetizing.

They didn't ruin our burgers by any means, but they didn't really enhance them much either. We'd have been better off with regular white bread buns or potato rolls or something like that.

The buns were soft enough on the inside, they just didn't taste particularly fresh. The slightly-firmer pretzel-esque exterior was a step up from the lackluster innards of the buns. It was somewhat reminiscent of a decent, lightly-salted pretzel, but again, it was just too thin a layer to redeem the rest of the bread.

It's possible we just got a bad batch. I felt like this product had potential, so I'm almost tempted to try it again hoping for some redemption. We'd love to hear input from others on this one. Let us know your experience in the comments below.

One of our pics didn't turn out great, so if you're interested in the nutrition information for this product, please click here. Surprisingly high in calories if you ask me.

I can only give this pretzel bun product 6 out of 10 stars.


  1. We buy a different brand, on the rare occasion that we feel like a splurge, and always, always toast them on the grill or under the broiler. It helps a lot!

  2. Marionos fresh baked pretzel buns are the gold standard where I live.

    1. Chicagoland? I'll have to check them out next time I'm passing through.
