“All the pretzels come with a freshness guarantee, meaning your pretzel has been baked within the last 30 minutes or less.”

The store sells a variety of pretzels in different flavours, including the nation’s favourite – cinnamon – or the classic original salted.

For those who want something a bit more substantial for lunch there is a pepperoni pizza, or for those who enjoy spice there is the cheese and jalapeno pretzel hot dog which comes with a kick.

There are also cheese pretzels, cheese and bacon pretzels and sesame pretzels, along with the sweet almond crunch or vanilla pretzel. Alternative pizza topping also include cheese and tomato and a meaty one.

For those who want to start their day with a breakfast that’s different from the usual choices, there are breakfast buns, which are pretzel buns filled with a variety of breakfast fillings.

Auntie Anne’s is the latest in a growing and diverse range of restaurants and cafes opening in the city centre, leaving diners spoiled for choice.

Many of the new openings also offer people the chance to enjoy cuisine which has been created in places across the world, and Auntie Anne's is no exception.

It was founded in 1988 by ‘Auntie’ Anne and her husband, Jonas Beiler, at a Pennsylvanian farmers market, originally created as a means of raising funds to open a local counselling centre.

Now, over thirty years later, there are over 2,000 stores globally, of which 39 are in the UK and Ireland.
