Orange County Pretzels—a Special Report: Trader Joe’s on the Bandwagon (Again)

More pretzel thoughts, taking off from the October print mag. You have tried that Peter’s Gourmade pastrami on the Röckenwagner pretzel roll by now, right? If not, GO. You can thank me later.

Another way pretzel buns find their way into Orange County is through Trader Joe’s. By the time something is sold at Trader Joe’s, is it hopelessly passé? Or is the ubiquitous, iconoclastic, essential (though less so than in the past) grocer on the leading edge?

Maybe pretzel buns are just inexorably moving into the mainstream, taking their place as another choice in the expanding burger-bun spectrum.

Research continues.
