Auntie Anne’s opened last February 5 — a few days after the much anticipated opening of Starbucks.
There was no fuss nor buzz with another foreign-owned franchise opening up their first store in Ho Chi Minh City. I guess Auntie Anne’s is an unknown next to Starbucks.
Each pretzel costs around 28,000 to 32,000 VND which is quite pricey actually next to other carbo-food products in the Vietnamese foodie scene, say a Banh Mi. 😀
I ordered my usual sour cream and onion while hubby got his cinnamon-flavored pretzel. Unfortunately though, the dips aren’t available yet. 😦
The verdict? It’s the same ole pretzel that I love. 🙂 I thought though that the lemonade here would be cheaper because lemons here in Vietnam are abundant — but no. The lemons used are “imported” according to the signs in the store — so it’s still mucho expensive. I guess they have to keep the “taste”. But how come they’re using local milk for the pretzels?
