More Than 120 Years of History

Decades ago, German settlers brought their favorite food staple, the "bretzel", to Pennsylvania. In 1888, we started our first storefront bakery in Lancaster, where H.K. Anderson took part in building the tradition of the American pretzel snack - twisting every one by hand and baking them to golden perfection in our brick ovens.

We've since outgrown that little brick bakery, but we're still making quality snacks for everyone with the same handmade care that went into our first pretzels. Like H.K. Anderson, we are committed to bringing you and your family the finest pretzels with simple, classic American ingredients, and our own unique, modern twists. We hope you enjoy!

  • From start to finish it takes about 40 minutes to make and bake a pretzel.
  • Largest pretzel ever baked was 40 lbs
  • Our bakers make sure that each pretzel is twisted perfectly and has just the right amount of salt
  • Our pretzels do not contain any animal fats, artificial colors or flavors, or preservatives as many other snacks do
  • Pretzels are baked, not fried - one reason why they are a low fat, low cholesterol snack
A Quality Tradition
