You won't find a better price on pretzels and chips. They even have a real bargain on broken bags of pretzels. It is well worth your time to shop here!

Wonderful place to stop and pick up some snacks. Different chips and pretzels available so that you're sure to find something for everyone's taste. You can often smell them baking when you're in the neighborhood.

I took my mom to the shop for pretzels and potato chips. The store there is nice and you can get pretzels and chips for half the price as at the store. A definitely nice place to visit.

I have stopped here on more than on occasion. The selection of pretzels along with the prices is great, though keep in mind debit/credit cards are foreign to them and aren't accepted. They also carry Martins Chips though they are made along route 30 between...More
