Best Chocolate Covered Pretzels: The Top 4 Will Make You Flipz

The best chocolate covered pretzels are sweet, salty, and crunchy. In my opinion, they’re the perfect snack. They’re great on their own, in a trail mix, or sprinkled on top of an ice cream sundae. These are my movie theater snack of choice. There’s nothing like the combination of crusty pretzel and rich chocolate.

I was blessed with the task of tasting all of the nationally available chocolate covered pretzels on the market to determine which should make it into your shopping cart and which should stay on the shelf. Below are the best chocolate covered pretzels for your snack pleasure.

Best of the Best

Flipz Milk Chocolate Covered Pretzels

Going into this taste test, I was very curious about where Flipz would stand. Flipz Milk Chocolate Covered Pretzels are the industry standard when it comes to chocolate covered pretzels, but are they actually the best chocolate covered pretzels? Turns out, they really are the best chocolate covered pretzels on the market. The ratio of chocolate to pretzel is perfect. There’s a great balance of salt and sweet. Needless to say, I absolutely flipped for Flipz (and you will too).

Best Dark Chocolate

Sprouts Dark Chocolate Covered Pretzels

Sprouts put every other store to shame when it comes to this sweet and salty treat. If you want the best chocolate covered pretzels from a grocery store, Sprouts is the place to go. And while all their renditions of “covered” pretzels are extraordinary, the dark chocolate ones were the best of the best. Don’t worry if you’re not that into dark chocolate—h these aren’t bitter at all. They’re creamy and rich and have the perfect amount of salt. Best of all, they’re super affordable!

Best White Chocolate

Flipz White Fudge Pretzels

In general, I’m not pro-white chocolate. I think it’s way too sweet and I definitely don’t think it’s really chocolate. Flipz has made me a white chocolate convert. Well, white fudge, that is. These are sweet without being too sweet and the white “chocolate” actually tastes chocolatey! Plus, these are some of the only white chocolate covered pretzels that exist. Typically, when you see white covered pretzels, they’re covered with yogurt. These white fudge covered pretzels will appeal to white chocolate lovers and haters alike. I promise!

I feel so bad for my celiac-having friends and family. Dang, I even feel bad for my celiac-afflicted enemies. Luckily, there is a great version of gluten-free chocolate covered pretzel. These Glutino Gluten Free Chocolate Covered Pretzels are some of the best chocolate covered pretzels we tried, including the regular gluten-full pretzels! If that’s not enough to convince you to try them, maybe you’ll grab a bag to check out how sensationally crunchy they are. Whether you’re eating these out of necessity or by choice, you will be very happy.
