National Pretzel Day

I'm so knotty

It's #nationalpretzelday! A bag of nice crunchy, salty pretzels or a big, warm, soft, cinnamon pretzel is the question of the day. Either one is an excellent choice. Did you know... Pennsylvania is the center of American pretzel production for both hard and soft pretzels, producing 80% of the nation’s pretzels. National Pretzel Day began in 2003 when Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell declared April 26 “National Pretzel Day” to acknowledge the importance of the pretzel to thestate’s history and economy.
