Feeling Twisted on National Pretzel Day



What do pretzels have to do with Catholic monks and the institution of marriage?  A lot as it turns out. As we celebrate National Pretzel Day today, munch on these fun facts:

Pretzels are believed to be the oldest snack in the world, dating back to 610 AD when European monks took scraps of dough and twisted them into a shape representing the Holy Trinity! Did you know the phrase “tying the knot,” symbolizing the marriage bond, was represented by the shape of the pretzel?

My all-time favorite snack is popcorn with hot nuts mixed in, but flavored pretzels—BBQ, mustard, Cajun—rank as a strong runner up. Just like Stanley in “The Office,” I also love soft pretzels, that doughy twisty goodness you can find in so many mall kiosks, sports venues and amusement parks. Serve me up a cinnamon sugar pretzel or a plain slathered with hot sauce and mustard and I’m a happy snacker.
With the salty flavorful pretzels, I like to slake my thirst with an ice cold lime flavored beer or a diet Dr Pepper.

By the way, if you love freebies like Stanley and me, go to Auntie Anne’s website before midnight today and celebrate National Pretzel Day with a Buy One Get One coupon.

Pretzels
I love pretzels....my favorite are the hard pretzels. I prefer mine dipped in a horseradish mustard with a beer....MMMMMMM. I also love the vendors on the streets of NYC selling those huge not so hot pretzels.....lol. While they could be a tad hotter, they are still yummy.

Honey Wheat braided pretzels
I once ate a whole bag of these in one sitting. I literraly could not stop. They are so tasty and go great with beer or vodka. No need to add anything to these babies!

Cinnamon
Love the cinnamon coated pretzels. Regular pretzels are good for card game, watching a game with a group and of course some cold beer. Going to that Aunt Annies site right now I can smell the cinnamon already!

Simpsons pretzel episode
There's an episode of the Simpsons where Marge goes into business as a pretzel "knot bread" vendor. "Knot" to be missed...

Pretzels should only be eaten with Sea Salt ..Toffee and dark chocolate...from "JUST CHOCOLATE" they go best with my favorite.... a nice glass of red wine

I love my pretzels soft and sweet- Auntie Anne's with the cinnamon or white glaze. They taste like they are dipped in butter- they are an infrequent treat and I love them with milk. Also like the Rold Gold cheese twists with ginger ale. TPO
