REVIEW: Dot’s Homestyle Pretzels Cinnamon Sugar Pretzel Twists

What are they?

Dot’s Homestyle Pretzels, the once regional savory snack that’s recently been expanding into stores nationwide, has come out with a limited-time Cinnamon Sugar seasoned version for the holiday season.

How are they?

If you’re familiar with the original Dot’s, you know these pretzel twists are seriously hard to stop eating, and this new variety is no different. The buttery, sweet scent smells just like an Auntie Anne’s cinnamon sugar pretzel or a freshly made piece of cinnamon toast. It’s a nostalgic flavor that Dot’s has taken a little deeper with notes of vanilla, maple, and molasses.

Anything else you need to know?

These pretzels don’t come cheap. A one-pound bag regularly runs somewhere in the 5-8 dollar range where I’m at. You can fairly regularly find them on sale, especially while they’re making a push to get into new markets, so if you see them for less, don’t hesitate to scoop them up.


I think you get what you pay for here; these are so delicious. If you took them to a holiday party, they would disappear in a flash, and everyone would love you for bringing them. A warning, though. You should only do that if you bought several bags because you’ll want to hoard these for yourself.

  1. Thanks, for the review, Erin! I’m a big fan of the savory/original Dot’s, and these also sound good, in their own right. Will have to take a look for them, at Jewel, soon. 🙂

    1. I hope you can find them! My husband was convinced he wouldn’t like them at all and he ended up loving them too!

      1. I already told my husband to take a look, tomorrow morning (which is usually when he makes a trip to both Jewel and Mariano’s). I’ll let you know if they’re found…and, if so, what I think of them. 🙂

  2. I presume this doesn’t have the spice or heat in them which I understand the regular kind do. If not they sound really good.

  3. I saw another reviewer say that these taste like the “cinnamon butter toast mom used to make” and I agree. I’m not someone who like overt sweetness, so these are the perfect level of sweetness for me.

    I wish they weren’t a limited time flavor. Although, for my health, its probably better that they are.

  4. Dot, We have fallen in love with the cinnamon pretzels..But the fun part is we shared them with friends and now they are lovin them as well.. I like the Honey Mustard as well. But the Cinnamon wins..I wish we could still buy them year round without having to order them..
