National Pretzel Day – An Annual Holiday for Pretzel. A day to celebrate the wonderful treat we love … Pretzels … Whether it be a soft pretzel or a hard pretzel.

Celebrated Annually on April 26th of each year, National Pretzel Day.

Do you like your Pretzels from the bag hard and salty? Maybe you like them soft and in various flavors like Auntie Anne’s?

Did you know the Pretzel has a form of Christian roots?  According to The History of Science and Technology, in 610 AD, “an Italian monk invents pretzels as a reward to children who learn their prayers.  He calls the strips of baked dough, folded to resemble arms crossing the chest, pretiola (little rewards).” Another place mentioned it got its roots in France from a monastery and they twisted their communion bread then.

It was also reported that the Soft Pretzel got started in the 19th Century by Pennsylvania. It wasn’t until 2003 that National Pretzel Day came into being.

I love pretzels. My favorite bagged kind is cheddar hard pretzels. From Auntie Anne’s pretzels, I like the Original, Sweet Almond, Roasted Garlic and Parmesan, and the Pepperoni. I have never ate at Philly Pretzel Factory, so I am not sure which flavors I would like. I am sure I would like their original pretzel too. Looking at their menu, I think I would like the Pepperoni Pretzel Melts.

I am not sure about any other Pretzel joints to add. If you know of any, please feel free to share in the comments.
