They have freshly baked pretzels in different flavors such as salt, cinnamon and other traditional flavors that are sold in all Auntie Anne's stores worldwide.
However, as Japanese culture has a strong appreciation towards the change of seasons, they also have seasonal pretzels only sold in Japan. For example, this is the "Tochiotome Ichigo Pretzel" which uses the Japanese strawberry brand, Tochiotome, to make this pretzel.
