The pretzel is one of the original snack foods. Around 610 AD...an Italian monk invents pretzels as a reward to children who learn their prayers. He calls the strips of baked dough, folded to resemble arms crossing the chest, pretiola - Italian for "little rewards." Later the “pretiola” journeyed out of Italy into other countries and finally into Germany, where it was salted and glazed. It then became known as the “bretzel” or “PRETZEL.”
