Are Auntie Anne’s pretzels vegan?

The most important question regarding Auntie Anne is: Are Auntie Anne’s pretzels vegan?

Luckily, it can be vegan, at least most pretzels, since the pretzel dough itself is vegan, which is a pleasant surprise. However, they do add butter to it in the end. Luckily, you don’t have to do anything but exclude the butter in order. In that case, the following pretzels will be vegan at Auntie Anne’s:

  • Original pretzel,
  • Cinnamon sugar pretzel (the sugar is cruelty-free),
  • Sweet almond pretzel,
  • Jalapeño Pretzel,
  • Original  Pretzel Nuggets and
  • Cinnamon sugar pretzel nuggets.

Obviously, pepperoni pretzels, pretzel dogs, and pepperoni nuggets are not vegan and can’t be made vegan.

What else is vegan at Auntie Anne’s besides pretzels?

There are some more interesting items on Auntie Anne’s menu that are suitable for vegans.


When ordering, please note that not all dipping sauces are vegan, even if they are suggested for your pretzel. You can choose from the following vegan dipping sauces for your pretzel:

  • Marinara and
  • Sweet glaze.

Unfortunately, the other dipping sauces are not vegans since they contain either dairy or eggs. In many places, honey items don’t actually contain honey, only flavoring, but at Auntie Anne’s, honey mustard sauce is out of the question since even if it doesn’t contain honey, it does contain eggs. The other sauces are obviously not suitable for plant-based eaters.
