As a kid growing up in Queens NY you used to be able to buy soft pretzels in candy stores. The street vendors today sell an inferior product. I've become a fan of the 'Philly Pretzel Factory' stores in PA, NJ, DE but there are none on Long Island. This past week I became aware of a store in Oceanside NY that making a very good product. They sell retail and wholesale as well and are called the Pretzel Spot (3212 Long Beach Rd).
