National Pretzel Day

Date When Celebrated : This holiday  is always April 26

National Pretzel Day celebrates pretzels of all shapes and sizes.

How do you like your pretzel? Thick or thin? Straight or twisted? Crisp and crunchy, or soft? Salted, unsalted, mustard flavored, perhaps? There's no shortage of types of pretzels. If you are having trouble deciding which ones, we suggest you mix a bunch of different types of pretzels in a big bowl, and grab a handful, or two, or three, or.....

Did you know? Pretzels are believed to be the world's oldest snack. Pretzels date back to 610AD in Southern France. Catholic Monks baked thin strips of dough into the shape of a child's arms folded in prayer. Add a little salt, and Voila! ...the pretzel industry was born.  

While pretzels were first baked in France, pretzels have been popular in German bakeries for hundreds of years. In the U.S., the first pretzel was baked in 1850 in Lititz, Pa., by Julius Sturgis.
