Celebrate National Pretzel Month With A Stop At Auntie Anne's

Posted in Broadway at the Beach, Featured Posts, Dining

October is National Pretzel Month. It's time to celebrate the creation of one of mankind's truly twisted inventions — the soft pretzel. Legend says that Christian monks created the doughy treat as far back as the 12th century. They twisted the pretzels into the shape of crossed arms – the popular posture for prayer in those very old days. By the 17th century, the pretzel knot was being revered as a symbol of everlasting love.

Some reports say the pretzel came over to America with the first English settlers, but it wasn't until 1861 that the first pretzel factory was built in Pennsylvania. Today, one of that state's claims to fame is that it produces 80% of all the pretzels made in the U.S.

Which brings us to Auntie Anne's, a company that started selling its pretzels at a Pennsylvania farmers market in 1988, and now has a home at Broadway at the Beach.

At Auntie Anne's in Broadway's Caribbean Village, these delicious snacks are mixed, hand-rolled and shaped right before your eyes, then baked to perfection as you wait with your mouth watering.

Auntie Anne's likes to say that it's “raising the standard of snacking" and few who have tasted their pretzels would disagree. In addition to their awesomely delicious basic pretzel, there are adventurous options like roasted garlic & parmesan and jalapeno. A variety of scrumptious dips are offered to jazz up the pretzely goodness.

But where's the meat? It's in the pepperoni pretzel and Auntie Anne's salute to the great American hot dog. Don't miss that unusually delicious treat formed by snuggling a plump Nathan's Famous hot dog inside soft, chewy pretzel dough.

Got a sweet tooth? Check out the sweet almond, raisin and cinnamon sugar pretzels. For the nuggets fan, Auntie Anne's has pretzel nuggets covered in cinnamon sugar or stuffed with cheddar cheese.

Why not celebrate fall and National Pretzel Month by sharing your thoughts about Auntie Anne's pretzels using #NationalPretzelMonth on social media?

Then, take a stroll around Lake Broadway. There's no better snack to have in hand on a crisp autumn day than a warm, soft pretzel.
