PHILLY HAS SPOKEN: “THE GREAT UNSOFT PRETZEL”
Did you know that Pennsylvania is responsible for the production of 80 percent of the nation’s pretzels? And, like we mentioned the other day, Philadelphia is the pretzel-eating capital of the world, with the average Philadelphian chowing down on 12 pounds of pretzels per year (compared to two pounds per year for other folks).
They know their pretzels, that’s for sure. Philadelphians also have some interesting ways to describe our newest Pub Style Pretzels. We found that out during Ed Herr’s visit to a Philly pub, where he was on a mission to get pub approval for our newest sourdough creation.
One guy called it “the great unsoft pretzel” (video here). We like the sound of that. Another Philly snacker (below), when asked why the City of Brotherly Love likes pretzels so much, suggested they were a safe object to throw at people at ball games.
For the record, we don’t recommend using our Pub Style Pretzels as projectiles. They’re far too tasty, and that’s far too wasteful. Unless you’re throwing them at a hungry friend. In which case, let ‘er rip!
