April 26 marks National Pretzel Day! Centuries ago, Catholic monks were the first to make pretzels from leftover dough. The knot shape was said to represent the Holy Trinity, but the symbol has since evolved. Ever wondered where the phrase “tying the knot” came from? Pretzels were used to symbolize the bond of marriage in the 17th century!
To celebrate National Pretzel Day, we’ve got four vendors who make delicious pretzels! Check them out after the cut, and get yourself some pretzels today:
The folks at Sigmund’s Pretzels understand the versatility of the pretzel. Their baking lean towards all things German and Eastern European, with a touch of New York, of course! Sigmund’s Pretzels offer properly chewy pretzels, which also comes in truffle cheddar, feta olive and many more. If you’re up for something different for your event, they offer a Pretzel Cart rental delivery too! The cart is inclusive of one staff member. More information here.
Pelzer’s Pretzels may be located in Brooklyn, but believe its roots are firmly planted in all things Philadelphia! Expect soft, handmade pretzels when you go to these folks, with the promise of nothing but wholesome and fresh pretzels using the best ingredients. Don’t forget to pick up their amazing spicy beer or champagne honey mustard when you get their classic pretzels! Look out for the Jalapeno Cheddar and Balboa pretzels too. Get yours here!
