Anyone from America, that's been in a shopping mall should know about Auntie Anne's Pretzel Shop.

There is one that opened a little over a month ago in Ikebukuro, right next to the station's east exit.

I have been by there twice and it's the same as what happened to Krispy Kreme when they opened. A line. A long line. 45 minutes was too long for me to wait in the cold. I'll go back again when the popularity has died down.

A little taste of America.

(Note: Japan had Cinnabon up until 2009. We lost that at the same time we lost Wendy's)
 
Great. I get to be fat all over again.

Perfect. :eek:
 
Karen's Roving Update Report:

Lines at these places [Ikebukuro & Akihabara (Hibiya Line)] have died down to normal levels.

And, I'm not fat. One pretzel a month is good enough! :)

Shout out to Dave from Canada who I met at the Ikebukuro shop! (doubt he'll read this!)
