I love pretzels--soft pretzels, crunchy pretzels--they're all my friends. So naturally I was delighted to discover that the Prospect Park branch of Uncle Louie G's was offering Snyder's of Hanover pretzel cones. Cones made of pretzels?! Now that's something worth checking out...
Last night I treated my mom to a pistachio ice cream in a pretzel cone and it got high marks. The pretzel cone holds up well to the ice cream and stays nice and crunchy. Like any good pretzel the cone has a wee bit of salt on it. Perfect when paired with the creamy nuttiness of the pistachio ice cream (they Uncle Louie G's pistachio isn't shy on the whole pistachio pieces).
I want to try the pretzel cone with Chocolate Peanut Butter ice cream. Ohhh, or Snickers. Or Dulce de Leche. Or Grapenut... Clearly a return trip is in my near future...
