National Pretzel Day

The world's oldest snack was created in 610 AD according to company spokesperson.  The pretzel was introduced to America by German and Swiss German immigrants.

Lisa dips raw dough in a special solution that makes them brown as they bake.  It takes only 5 minutes to bake a pretzel.  She was serving them hot from the oven last Tuesday as people came for their free pretzel.

Philly Pretzel Factory gives away about 70,000 pretzels each year its name day.  The Philadelphia based company has more than 100 franchises.  The Chadds Ford franchise is owned by Michael Gunselman and is located at 220 Wilmington West Chester Pike.
