Labriola Baking Company Review and Giveaway

Pretzels are one of my favorite snacks.  I most enjoy the large pretzels that have the best crunch and just the slightest hint of salt.  How can you go wrong with a crunchy, salty snack? When given the opportunity, I can devour a warm soft pretzel too.  I don't discriminate against pretzels! I never knew that pretzel bread existed until I had a turkey burger on a pretzel bun.  I was in love, not to mention hooked!  Labriola Baking Company will make all of your pretzel bread dreams come true.



Labriola Baking Company is one of the largest producers of pretzel bread in the country.  Recently, pretzel bread has seen a spike in popularity. It isn't just about the soft pretzel anymore.  The soft texture and complex flavor of pretzel bread is popping up on restaurant menus and filling bread baskets.  Forget the traditional seeded bun to hold your turkey sandwich or hamburger, how about switching it up for a pretzel bun instead? Of course there's nothing wrong with warming up the bread and eating it by itself either. Pretzel bread would make an excellent gift for any foodie.

I was excited when I had the opportunity to sample some pretzel bread.  The day finally arrived on Friday when the pretzel gods spoke to me.  I came home from work to find a large box from Labriola Baking Company.   I set them free and laid my eyes on true beauties.

The key to my heart.


The first thing I noticed about these buns was their petite size.  How adorable are they? The bag held a generous amount of "slider pretzel buns" as they are titled.  I really liked how perfectly round they were, like a ball.  The light brown hue was a true representation of a pretzel.  Luckily I was able to pair them with dinner that night.  I was looking forward to substituting a pretzel bun for an ordinary roll.  I heated them up slightly in the oven for a couple minutes, just to bring out the flavor even more.


I served them just by themselves, because sometimes simplicity is key.  The buns were perfectly warm as I piled them into the bread basket.  There was no salt on top like a regular pretzel, that was the only thing missing!  When you bite into the roll, you're instantly hit with a soft and fluffy interior with a firm exterior. It's funny how bread can truly taste like a real pretzel.  I even dipped it into a little olive oil which was certainly a hit at dinner. Each roll has 200 calories so you have to be careful not to go too crazy.  I controlled myself and only had one. The rolls were truly delicious and I enjoyed each and every bite. I would like to experiment with the rolls in the future and serve different things inside them.  I like to let my food creativity flow through.

I froze the rest of the buns so I can have them throughout the coming months.  If you're a pretzel fan, you must try Labriola's pretzel bread.  You'll be a fan for life.
