Pretzels are a surprisingly versatile thing. They come in big and small sizes, hard and soft textures, and pair nicely with delicious stone-ground mustard or dunked in a ton of chocolate. Who can deny their twisted saltiness?
And not only are pretzels good for eating (and I guess they're healthy if you don't dip them in nacho cheese), but they're pretty cute, too. And with the first week of Oktoberfest in full swing — not sure if there's anything that pairs more with a pretzel than a German beer — we thought it'd be a perfect time to write our love letter to pretzels.
Whether you like them in your mouth, in your house, in a box or with a fox, there's plenty of ways to get your love affair with pretzels on, and it's wonderfully guilt-free.
