Frequently Asked Questions
What Is The Difference Between A Hard And Soft Pretzel?
Pretzels usually come in two forms, hard and soft. The difference between hard and soft pretzels is indicated by the name. Hard pretzels are hard and crunchy whilst soft pretzels are soft and chewy.
Soft pretzels are usually larger than hard pretzels. These are the type of pretzels that you might find at a food stand. If you are buying soft pretzels from the grocery store, then you are more likely to find them near the bread and baked goods.
Hard pretzels, on the other hand, are smaller and crunchy. These pretzels are more likely to come in a bag with quite a lot of them in the bag. Hard pretzels are the type of pretzels that you are easily able to find in any grocery store. They are usually near the chips and other crunchy snack sections.
Can You Reheat Soft Pretzels?
Yes, you can reheat soft pretzels! There are many different ways to reheat them.
The quickest way to reheat a soft pretzel is to put it in the microwave. However, the issue many people face when trying to reheat soft pretzels is that the soft pretzels end up being soggy.
There is always the option to reheat your soft pretzel in the oven. The best way to do this is to wet the pretzel with a small amount of water. Then you should wrap the pretzel in foil and place it in a hot oven that is around 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Keep in the oven for around 5 minutes.
You could also place your pretzel in the air-fryer for 5 minutes to reheat it.
Reheating chocolate-covered pretzels isn’t possible as they are meant to be eaten cold and the chocolate would melt.
How Long Do Pretzels Last?
Hard pretzels usually last a very long time, especially if they are stored correctly. If you are using store-bought pretzels then we would suggest following the guidelines on how long they last once opened. Usually, it is about a week before they start to go stale.
Soft pretzels, on the other hand, do not last as long as hard pretzels. Soft pretzels, when freshly baked, usually stay in good condition for around 4-5 days.
To make sure that soft pretzels last for around 5 days, it is best to keep them in an airtight container on the counter at room temperature. Do not put them in the refrigerator as they will harden and become dry.
