Why Pretzel Day?

This Knot-ty snack is simply made by intertwining the ends of dough like a knot forming an intertwined loop! The origin for this Pretzel has various accounts and involves Christian monks. It dates back to 610 AD, during which an Italian monastic offered them as rewards in prayer training children; he designed their shape accordingly – resembling arms crossed over one another while lying down on either side (a gesture known popularly today among carnival vendors).

The history of pretzels is an interesting one! They seem to have first appeared in Italy, where they were named “pistachio,” which means cheese-maker. The Romans would dip their pretzel sticks into honey before eating it so that bees could not sting them while drinking; this practice came from symbology associated with Milton’s poetry about Samson’s strength after he lost his hair due Bible account goes: “He rent the temple apart like an earthquake.”

The shape was originally designed as a practical idea for bakers – who often needed more room than normal because ingredients such as flour usually expand when heated up during baking processes. Pretzels could easily be twisted into a knot shape and wouldn’t rise as much during baking – meaning less wasted dough!

The pretzels that Americans know and love today evolved from a traditional German snack in the 19th century. Pretzel bakers would often use mystic pitching yeast to create these hard, crispy treats which became popular throughout North America after being brought over by Pennsylvania Dutch immigrants! In addition, there are soft varieties created sometime around 1900 when an accident occurred during baking where they were left too long on one side so you get this wonderful salty crunch while eating them but also because of how well they store- they can last up to a month when stored in the right conditions!

The best thing about Pretzels is how affordable they are! You can enjoy them soft or hard, with peanut butter, mustard, and other delicious toppings.

The most popular way to eat these snacks at the moment seems like it’s in chunks broken off into your hand then mosied up together before eating but there’s no wrong answer when you’re enjoying something this good- essentially anything goes so don’t be afraid try new things on for size tomorrow morning breakfast time National Pretzel Day!

Interesting Facts About National Pretzel Day:

There are so many interesting facts surrounding Pretzel Day! First, in 1850 the first functional bakery was opened by an immigrant from Germany. He wanted to create a national snack that everyone could enjoy and thus were born “pretzels.” Eighty percent (80%) comes from Pennsylvania where they’re produced commercially for both domestic consumption as well international sales like Canada and Mexico who love their salty treats too much not try them on occasion or when traveling abroad but rather eat what tastes better than anything else – including doughnuts which have come into fashion recently due possibly because pretzels aren’t as sweet as they are savory.

The average American eats 1.5 pounds of Pretzels annually, but Pennsylvanians take the crown as biggest consumers with a whopping 5 pounds per person!

Pretzels have been around since ancient times when they were known as “bald wethers” or priestly halls because these pretzel dough strips would be baked into bread by priests during religious ceremonies to represent blessing them before God; this tradition continues today for some people who still believe that breaking wind on your wedding day will bring good luck (or at least prevent bad).

History of National Pretzel Day:
