I have only tried the Vita-Spelt standard spelt pretzels because that is all I have found locally. I would like to try the Vita-Spelt Sourdough Pretzels if for no other reason other then the oil is not an avoid for type O secretors.

I was wondering if anyone has tried any of the other choices? If so, which do you like best?

Vita Spelt Pretzels
Vita-Spelt Pretzel Ingredients: Spelt (Wheat) Flour (Unbleached, Unbromated, Unenriched), Water, Soybean Oil, Salt, Soda, Yeast.
Vita-Spelt Low Sodium Pretzel Ingredients: Spelt (Wheat) Flour (Unbleached, Unbromated, Unenriched), Water, Soybean Oil, Yeast, Salt, Soda. (sodium 90mg/serving)
Vita-Spelt Sourdough Pretzel Ingredients: Organic Spelt (Wheat) Flour (Unbleached, Unbromated and Unenriched), Water, Organic Canola Oil, Yeast, Salt, Soda.

Newman's Own Organics Pretzels (Here is a picture of the packaging: http://www.wellnessgrocer.com/newmans-own-organic-pretzels-spelt-p-2085.html)
Ingredients: Organic spelt flour, spelt flour, organic sunflower oil, salt, yeast, and sodium bicarbonate.
Serving Size: about 20 pretzels (30g), Calories per Serving: 120, Calories from fat: 10, Total Fat: 1g (saturated fat: 0gm), Cholesterol: 0mg, Sodium: 240mg, Total Carbohydrates: 23g (dietary fiber: 4g, sugars: 0g), Protein: 4g

Are there any other brands of spelt pretzels available?

Funny you should post about this...I just bought a bag of the sourdough spelt pretzels for my road trip tomorrow. I really like them; better than the regular spelt ones. Although, I haven't had the regular ones in a while, so I wouldn't be able to tell you what I didn't like about them...except they are a little more bland tasting. The brand I buy is Vita Spelt.

You could dip them in some of Edna's Nutritional Yeast and Ghee.  Or a nut butter.  †Oh oh...this is making me hungry now. †Better get off the grain thought and onto some protein and veggies.

Unfortunately for me I like both Vita-Spelt and Newman's. The sourdough is definitely the best of the lot imo though--nice and tangy. They are a wonderful occasional treat and a nice substitute for soft pretzels, especially with a good spicy mustard. Okay, I'm stopping right there.

My older son loves mustard and can eat a lot of pretzels and mustard quickly if I let him!

I used to eat apples and pretzels (Snyder's big sour dough) for a snack.

I just bought a bag of Vita Spelt Sourdough pretzels last week.  I'm normally not that fond of pretzels, but it's nice to have a non-homemade crunch once in awhile.  Our store quit carrying Vita Spelt sesame sticks, so I am trying the pretzels.  Thanks for reminding me, I just took one out to munch.

Drea, for me, they are OK - I've never been that fond of pretzels.  However, I sometimes feel "crunch deprived" (i.e. potato chips, Fritos) -- at that point, for me, anything compliant that I don't have to bake is a winner.

I'll have to see if WF carries this sourdough brand. Before finding BTD, there was a period of my life that I had hard sourdough pretzels and Pepsi for lunch.........everyday.....for quite some time.

I think Shiloh Farms also makes spelt sesame sticks. I've used them in my trail mix now and then, they make a good substitute for pretzel rods or pieces.

I love a good spicy brown 'wein senf' style mustard with pretzels. Chinese style is good too, love horseradish and mustard together!

I found the sesame sticks to be quite tasty. Just too much in one bag to use before they go stale/bad. (One serving per month is all I can get interested in, that's about a quarter of a bag.)

I donít eat them very often because both brands you mentioned have avoids for me in them.  Vita has soybean oil or canola oil and Newman has sunflower oil.  When Iím in the mood I go with the Newman Spelt pretzels.  I miss pretzels.

I keep a bag in my cubbyhole at work (Newman's brand). They are an acceptable semi-compliant alternative to tortilla chips or Fritos or worst of all, Combos (I was addicted to those terrible things years ago, and still have trouble staying away from them even now). Another good alternative is Mary's Gone Crackers. They make a good snack with some baby carrots or celery and walnut butter dip or stone ground mustard.

Now if someone would just make a really good sourdough spelt or emmer pretzel rod, I'd be in pretzel heaven. Might just have to do some experimenting with making my own when the cooler weather gets here. It's too hot to heat up the apartment by using the oven right now.

WF has another brand, Happy something in a blue bag.  They have both regular and low salt.   They are pretty good.

I got a local HFS to order some of the Vita-Spelt Sourdough Spelt Pretzels. I was able to buy some of them last week. My whole family likes them better then the plain Vita-Spelt Spelt Pretzels and the ingredients are all type O secretor OK.

Unfortunately, they are more expensive and the HFS that ordered them for me tends to have higher prices. I will have to shop for a cheaper source.

The problem with those sourdough spelt pretzels is that I have a very hard time not eating the whole bag!

Mary's Gone Crackers.


I was not impressed with the crackers that I got. Thought they tasted a bit like dirt.  And they had the texture of glass shards.  Not my cup o' tea at all.
