A Taste of German Pretzels

What type of pretzel do you like best?

What’s Germany without a few pretzels! Ranging in size and flavor, we tried a variety of these quintessential snacks. We had them large and doughy like a bagel, stuffed with meats and cheeses. We had them thin and crunchy, caramelized and rolled in sliced almonds. And of course we had the classic soft and salty.

Legend says the pretzel was originally invented by European monks as a reward for children for learning their prayers, the dough twisted to resemble arms crossing the chest. Did you know the average American apparently eats 1.5 pounds of pretzels every year?
