My wife and I went to a kiosk Auntie Anne’s in Sawgrass mall Florida. We asked the kind lady to make the pretzels without the butter and she told me that they have an oil spray she use to stick the cinnamon and salt. We did just that and she made a fresh batch just for us and maaaaaan it was delicious!

  1. There is no butter in the dough but they use butter in the bowl to prevent sticking when mixing and also on the counter before cutting the dough.

    • Did you get this information from their corporate or see it happening at a particular location? They do not disclose this at all on their allergen chart or even suggest that it is occurring anywhere that I could find on their website.
