Martin’s are a Mennonite family who have grown famous for grown famous in these parts for their wonderfully crip, hand-twisted, hand-baked salted pretzels.
New York is a notable pretzel city with soft-pretzel vendors on every other midtown street corner, but some of the best pretzels in New York are crunchy ones from Pennsylvania - Martin’s Hand-Made Pretzels, available in the Greenmarkets...crisp, plump, dark-brown pretzels...[that] Alfred Milanese said “Martin’s are the Rolls Royce of the pretzel world.”
Perfect handmade Pennsylvania Dutch-style Martin’s Pretzels...the standard against which all pretzels should be judged.
Martin’s pretzels are to Mr. Pretzel what a BMW is to a Yugo.These pretzels are so good they satisfy even my very picky oldest brother. They are crunchy and flavorful and are made of nothing but flour, water, yeast, and salt.
Now clear your tastebuds with crunchingly crisp, palate-scrubbing Martin’s Handmade Pretzels, which are local favorites at Greenmarkets....They are best lightly salted, but the sodium-conscious can have them salt-free. They are even better spread with sweet butter or as a foil for aged cheddar cheese.
Greenmarket groupies agree it’s “worth salting away your pocket change” (and it doesn’t take much) for these “rock-hard uber-pretzels” whose “perfect toasty taste” and “addictive” crispness mean for many they’re “the only ones worth eating”
Those who snack in times of stress will find no finer hard pretzels than the hand-twisted beauties from Martin’s.
Crunchy, plump and full of toasty flavor, Martin’s pretzels are superb.
