Editior’s Note: Pretzel Revolution & Creamery closed on December 31, 2016.
It was in March when Julie and I made our first visit to Pretzel Revolution and Creamery.
We were both fans of the stuffed soft pretzels from our visits to the original Pretzel Revolution in Kutztown, and were beyond excited to have a location closer to home.
The fact that the new Route 12 location served ice cream was just a bonus.
We enjoyed small cones of ice cream on that trip, but it was really all about the pretzels. On our return visit, we skipped dinner and went straight for dessert.
Pretzel Revolution expanded their hours since our last visit, and since May have been open every night until 10 p.m. That makes it a lot easier for us to get there on a weeknight, especially when all we need is dessert.
There was a family of three sitting at one table and an older couple at another when we arrived around 9.
Pretzel Revolution has both Kreider Farms and Penn State Berkey Creamery ice cream. I didn’t even look at the Kreider Farms flavors. (No offense).
On our last visit, I had the Berkey Creamery’s most famous flavor: peachy Paterno. This time, I went with another Hall of Fame flavor, keeney beaney.
Keeney beaney uses chocolate ice cream as its delicious base, but it’s made even better by the addition of chocolate chips and vanilla bean.
Berkey Creamery ice cream is not quite as creamy or heavy as Longacre’s Modern Dairy, but it is heavy enough. And I always love the combination of vanilla and chocolate. Everyone makes a vanilla ice cream with chocolate swirl so I really appreciated getting the reverse.
Julie went with even more chocolate for her cone, ordering the death by chocolate ice cream. The creamery’s version of death by chocolate features chocolate flakes, fudge pieces and chocolate swirl.
She really enjoyed it, especially on her pretzel cone. I just wish there was a pretzel bakery nearby that could do a homemade pretzel cone (hint, hint).
Pretzel Revolution and Creamery is the only place in Berks County where you can find Penn State’s fantastic ice cream flavors. And the price of $8 and change for our two specialty cones was equally fantastic.
On our trips to Pretzel Revolution and Creamery, we have enjoyed both the stuffed pretzels and the ice cream.
While there, I also saw a sign saying they were now serving pretzel pizzas.
Sounds like I’ll be going back again soon.
