Uncle Jerry’s Pretzels are made in the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch country according to a traditional century-old recipe. Since founding the company 25 years ago, Jerry Skolnick, a.k.a. Uncle Jerry, has changed little about the hand-rolled and hand-twisted pretzels except to introduce a few new varieties, including an extra dark version (”Basically the same pretzel, but it’s burnt,” he says), low-salt, whole-wheat, and oat bran. The sturdy twists
(8 ounces for $3.95; 1.25 ounces for 99 cents) contain no fat, sweeteners, or preservatives, and boast an addictive super crispy-hard crunch that makes it difficult for snack lovers to close the bag.  Available at City Feed and Supply, 672 Centre St., Jamaica Plain, 617-524-1700; D’Agostino’s Deli, 11 Waterfield Road, Winchester, 781-729-7984, and 1297 Massachusetts Ave., Arlington, 781-646-4949; Formaggio Kitchen, 244 Huron Ave., Cambridge, 617-354-4750, and Formaggio Kitchen South End, 268 Shawmut Ave., Boston, 617-350-6996; or go to www.unclejerryspretzels.com.
