Wetzel's Pretzels Malaysia @ Sunway Pyramid

Craving carbs? Pretzel Power to the rescue! California-based chain Wetzel's Pretzels has opened its first Malaysian outpost in Sunway Pyramid, promising doughy delights that taste fresh & hot from the oven.

A different kind of pretzel for every type of taste bud, from plain salted/unsalted ones that start from RM3 to premium varieties enriched with garlic butter, sour cream & onion, cheese, pepperoni, cinnamon, chocolate or almonds (up to RM5 per pretzel).

These flavoursome pretzels are the soft-baked sort but they still supply a pleasant chew, substantial but not strenuous. Hearty enough to be filling meals, not simply a snack. Our only possible complaint: they're pretty oily.

Sure, these are entirely empty calories of the fast-food variety, but they sure put the pleasure in 'guilty pleasure.'

Also fun to try: Wetzel Bitz, convenient RM5 bags of bite-sized pieces of pretzel.

We have to confess to also liking the Wetzel Cheese Dog (RM9), a thick-&-long beef frankfurter wrapped in cheesy-crusty pretzel dough. A trillion calories consumed in 10 minutes.

  9. The cheese products are oilier, but then the non-cheesy products like Almond, Salted, Cinnamon and Sour Cream are okay...
    Btw the frankfurters are Chicken, not Beef...

    1. Yian: thanks for the info :) that's a good point, i had mostly the cheesy pretzels, so i guess that's why i felt they were oily. will try the other versions next time :)
