Walking up and down the road of shops in Kona can leave you hungry for a snack, and this is a good place for something quick and easy to share while you walk. Taste great, and we enjoyed our stop and brief talk with Mike.

This place is around the corner from a popular shaved ice store. The Pretzels are very large and tasty. There are many vareties. The owner is friendly. I highly recommend this snack.

Find Swedish Shave Ice on Alii Drive, then go up the road to the right...and about 50 yards up on the left you'll find Metal Mike's. Great little spot for a pretzel snack.

We load up on these every visit to Kona, he's not always there when you are, so when he is, buy extras.

Off the beaten path, this metal shack offers some of the best filled pretzels you will ever eat. Mike brings the Philadelphia pretzel to Hawaii with a twist with his complementary philosophy and information about the island.

Ignore the "true"hole the wall location. The pretzels were large, perfectly baked and tasty. Had the four cheese and sea salt. Metal Mike rocks!
