• Hard pretzels were "invented" in the late 1600s,
when a snoozing apprentice in a Pennsylvania
bakery accidentally overbaked his pretzels, creating
crunchy, seemingly inedible, knots. His job was
spared when the master baker, attempting
admonishment, took an angry bite out of one--and
loved it.

    • Hard pretzels are better than soft pretzels because they can be broken up and flavored in many ways. Vice versa becsuse soft oretzels have a wonderful texture, are way bigger, and have a sweet buttery aroma. Mustard is a must.
