Auntie Anne’s has my heart because right there on their website, for all to see, is their Vegan Guide. I think I danced for joy at my desk when I found it. With that, I decided to be uncomplicated in my pretzel desire and order an original sans butter.
The gentleman taking my order asked if I was allergic. Without thinking, I said, “I’m vegan. It’s an ethical allergy.”* To my surprise, he not only got it, he cracked up laughing. “I love that!” he exclaimed. It took a few minutes for my dairy-free pretzel to be ready, but when it was, it was hot and fresh from the oven. No languishing under heat lamps for my pretzel, no sir.
Let this be a lesson to you, my darlings. Never be afraid to ask for what you want, and don’t dumb it down for anyone. You deserve the very best pretzel.
