Like an ordinary pretzel, Gnarly Knots starts their process by rolling out dough, but that’s about the only similarity to the ones you’d find at the mall. Next, these pretzels are stuffed with a crazy array of sweet or savory fillings, tossed and twisted, salted, and then baked to golden perfection.
“All told between the sweet and savory, we focus more on the savory, but occasionally we’ll do a sweet stuffed,” said McLoughlin. “We have probably between 50 to 100 versions of a stuffed pretzel that you can get.”
For those looking for an entire meal, there's cajun chicken and Jack cheese, three cheese, or Italian beef and come served with your choice of creamy mustard, apricot habanero, nacho cheese, or herb butter sauce. Or to satisfy that sweet tooth, the massive birthday cake pretzel is stuffed with cake, sprinkles and frosting rolled up into balls and then covered in rich chocolate frosting and -- obviously -- rainbow sprinkles.
