Soft pretzels are always a fun treat — these great handheld snacks can be enjoyed on the go or while we work at our desks. Of course, these doughy savory nibbles are only made better by pairing them with something like a nacho cheese sauce or mustard — and don’t forget the salt! Even on their own, however, they’re undeniably delicious, and a go-to everywhere from movie theaters to concerts.

While we love to grab this snack when we’re out and about, why not make life even easier and enjoy it at home on demand? Aldi’s Deutsche Küche Bavarian Soft Pretzels come in a package of six soft pretzels and are reminiscent of those delicious warm pretzels we pick up at the mall or sporting events. Except they’re even better, because a whole package runs $4.79 — I’ve easily paid as much as that for one at a ball game or concert!

Aldi, of course, has German roots, and those roots can be sometimes found in some of its products. The pretzels are one of those German-inspired Aldi Finds currently available for German Week and can be found right now in the freezer aisle.

Much like other frozen pretzel brands on the market, these pretzels come with an accompanying salt packet that can be drizzled to your preferred salt level and popped to a preheated oven or air fryer. You then cook them at 375°F for about 5 minutes, or until your particular device gets to your ideal pretzel doneness level — which for us is golden-brown on the outside with a bit of crunch, and soft and doughy on the inside. Don’t forget the spicy brown mustard dipping sauce on the side!
