Happy Eat a Pretzel Day!

The origin of the Pretzel can be traced back to around 610 A.D. A monk who lived in one of the monasteries of Southern France or Northern Italy wanted to use the dough left over after baking bread. He decided to make strips and formed them to represent children's arms folded in prayer. He called each one a "Pretiola" - the Latin word for little reward.
