Hence, also a reason to celebrate the pretzel month with Good ‘O’ Days to remind all that of simplicity in life and where Auntie Anne’s all started.


Fun fact, National Pretzel Month is celebrated every October. Pretzels have come a long way since they were first created in 610 A D by an Italian monk who twisted leftover dough to resemble his students, who folded their arms across their chests when praying. The finished product, called pretiolas or "little rewards" in Latin, spread throughout Europe and was considered a symbol of good luck, long life, and prosperity. Pretzels have then marked changes to human history when in 1510, monks baking pretzels under the monastery overheard invading Ottoman Turks building tunnels under city walls. This helped the monks to alert the rest of the city and defended themselves from the attack. From then on, pretzels were then brought into America by the Germans, and the birth of the first commercial pretzels bakery in Pennsylvania. In the 1935s pretzels were mass-produced by automated pretzel makers. As a tribute to the growing love of pretzels, a museum was even dedicated to pretzels. Over the years, whether from the monks to present machinery help, the classic taste of pretzels is still the same, and memories of it remain warm in our hearts.
