Milwaukee Pretzel Company

These are the best pretzels I've eaten outside of Germany and when you visit one of their stands here in Milwaukee you'll likely have a chance to eat their Obatzda, which is a delicious, Bavarian cheese specialty made with camembert, butter, a splash of beer, onion, and paprika. And yes, their Obatzda is also the best Obatzda I've had outside of Bavaria.

The Milwaukee Pretzel Company will give you 5% off your entire order on every order with the code GERMANWITHNICOLE. So make sure you enter the code every time you order and you'll receive 5% off.


Check out the Milwaukee Pretzel Company - and if you want to order a larger amount, you can freeze their pretzels and they have instructions for reheating all their pretzels.

Denken Sie daran: use code GERMANWITHNICOLE for 5% off every order.
