I am crazy about pretzels. In fact, they rank right up there with my other two favorite foods, pizza and ice cream. I’m not completely sure why. It probably has something to do with their extreme saltiness and crunchiness. At any rate, it takes me an average of two days to polish off a full-size bag. But for everyone besides me and this guy, eating pretzels is a pretty mundane experience. Consequently, the pretzel people have to jazz it up with fun pretzel shapes. Enter the pretzel rod.
No one eats pretzel rods normally. That is a fact. There are people who suck on the end and pretend it’s a cigar. Some people crunch their way through at high speed like a squirrel. Others vary their pretzel rod-eating in more subtle ways, like either breaking it in half and eating both halves at once, or breaking off little pieces with their fingers. The truly committed dip their pretzel rods in milk chocolate and decorate them with sprinkles or stripes of white chocolate for the holidays.
