Everyone's reviews for A&A are on point -- they have separate cooking facilities, the GF pretzels are marked, and they're surprisingly very good. Even I as someone who doesn't have a gluten allergy liked the GF Pretzels and my brother (who is GF) loved it too. You can barely tell the difference! Just heads up: They only stock the salted GF standard pretzels if you show up. If you want some of the more unique treats or other pretzel flavors, its best to pre-order so you know they'll have it.

Excellent pretzels. The staff are always so nice and very accommodating. GF pretzels are always labeled with a sticker on the bag. Never been sick from them

Staff was very friendly and helpful. They described the advanced practices they use for preparing gluten free pretzels (which my son loved) to the point where they should roll model gluten safety to all South Jersey restaurants. Thanks guys, we'll be back, no doubt. They have separate prep areas, separate storage areas, separate bags. They take it serious. Thank goodness.

Repeat customer! Best GF pretzels we’ve ever had, not even close. 10/10

Their Oaklyn retail store is dedicated for GF baking and they bring in the regular pretzels they sell from Camden.

Awesome folks who put out an awesome product, both gluten-free and gluten-containing (or so I’ve heard). The gluten-free pretzels are incredible—especially the stuffed gluten-free pretzels. Just be careful: they regularly sell out around lunch time, so you may want to consider placing your order ahead of time if possible.

Anthony was AMAZING! They were so careful with the gluten free vs reg orders I got for other family members. Different color bags, different show cases. The pretzels are AMAZING! So worth a drive or a shipping order!! ❤

They have a dedicated gf kitchen at their Oaklyn location. Just tried one of the cheesesteak pretzels this weekend; phenomenal. I’ve ordered their pretzel sticks before for the holidays and they freeze/defrost very well. 10/10

This is the real deal. And I have to tell you, I walked in and watched the teenage kid put on fresh gloves when removing intense from the gf oven and then wrapping all the gf stuff before moving on the the regular, bagged separately. On top of that, the pretzels were a huge hit, even among the non-celiacs in the family. As a Philadelphian, I appreciate a good pretzel, this is it.

These pretzels tasted amazing! I did have some GI issues afterwards, my guess is maybe a decent amount of xantham gum, which is usually the culprit for me. If you are the same, I recommend only eating one - if you can lol.

Every time I’ve come to this place I’m amazed. It’s family owned and they take great pride in what they do, making their very own pretzels, choices of GLUTEN FREE and regular. They sell out quick! I had almost everything on the menu, the breakfast sandwich being the best by far. And their cinnamon sugar pretzels are so sweet! Finally a go to everyone can visit without feeling weird. Thank you A&A for your DEDICATION and LOVE!

As soon as I opened the door, the owner working asks “Are you here for gluten free pretzels?” She was extremely friendly and knowledgeable of Celiac Disease/cross contamination. Immediate glove change and the GF pretzels are placed in white bags whereas regular are in brown bags. I loved the Philly Cheesesteak and Gluten Free pretzels - I’ll be back for the meatball as it was sold out. 10/10 recommend!!!

Phenomenal. Was visiting family in Montgomery County, PA and made the drive just to try the GF pretzels. Thought I could wait to try one but the smell in the car was too good and scarfed one down on the drive back. Now ordering pretzels for delivery in ATL. Delivery cost is too high (I know it does not cost $35 even for 2 day delivery from Camden to Atlanta), but what can you do?

Was so happy to find this place that I bought some of all the gf options they had. Mixed results but I will definitely go back.

Pretzels - I give an 7.5. They’re small and shaped like a cinnamon roll. Mind of hard on the outside so you won’t be able to but into it but it was easy enough to pull apart and dunk in the mustard cup they give you. Overall I enjoyed them and looking forward to having them again.

Pretzel wrapped hot dog - I give it a 5. I ate this right away but it wasn’t hot, apparently it’s just a light it’s kept under and not a warming system. The pieces of the hot dog sticking out on the ends were browned but inside looked a hot dog right out of the wrapper. I had to take it home and cook it. It tasted better but I still wasn’t wowed by it.

Cheesesteak stuffed pretzel - give it a 10…DELISH!!! Once I got home I wrapped in a damp paper towel and microwaved for around 20-30 seconds. Dipped each bit in a little ketchup. They’re out big but a great snack.

Cinnamon pretzel - I give it a 6. I’ve had cinnamon sugar pretzels before but this one was just ok. It wasn’t bad, the flavor just didn’t shine through for me.

Pepperoni stuffed pretzel - Haven’t had this one yet. Wrapped it in foil and froze it for a snack later.

This place is a gem! I haven’t had a soft pretzel with cheese dipping sauce in so long! The owner is awesome and honest about his reasons for starting gluten free. He has a buddy with Celiac disease who was his taste tester. They make all their flour there so you need to call ahead for big orders. I got the cheesesteak pretzel, cinnamon pretzel and regular. They were all delicious. I will absolutely be back! He did say they are no longer selling gluten free at their Camden location because the Oaklyn facility is their gluten free location.

Dedicated gluten-free kitchen. Regular pretzels are made in their Camden store and brought to the Oaklyn location.

Brought home regular and cinnamon & sugar pretzels, both were very good. My wife had been talking about how she missed soft pretzels so this was a joy to find.

Staff knowledgeable and very helpful.

Will definitely return soon.

If you have not given this a visit yet, I suggest you make the time to do so. Words can not explain what it was like to have a hot soft pretzel with spicy brown mustard like I did 20 years ago before my diagnosis.

Kudos to the owners for taking the time over the COVID pandemic for coming up with a GF recipe for pretzels. Give these guys a shot!
