Happy National Pretzel Day: Our Picks For Some Of The Best Gourmet Pretzels In Philadelphia, Plus Free Soft Pretzels Today
Today, April 26, is National Pretzel Day.
Fun fact: according to the U.S. Pretzel Museum, the average Philadelphian consumes about twelve times as many pretzels as the national average.
As gratifying as traditional pretzels — soft, chewy dough hand-twisted and baked to a golden honey brown, sprinkled with coarse salt — are, Philadelphia’s gourmet dining scene offers pretzels in many deliciously inventive versions that are impossible to pass up.
Check out our top picks for gourmet pretzels in Philadelphia, from warm soft pretzel nibs with creamy cheddar sauce to pretzel-crusted chicken fingers to deep fried pretzel bites, right here.
