I was surprised at the variety of choices at the the Pretzel Factory. They have more than just old fashion Philly pretzels. Worth the trip.

Looking for a quick snack between flights at Philly airport, stopped a Philly Pretzel factory, I'm pretty boring, give me salted or cinnamon pretzels and I'm good. The hot pretzel at PPF were very good and as good or better than Auntie Anne's
