National Pretzel Day October 26th

Did you know that the average American eats two pounds of pretzels a year? Monday, October 26th is National Pretzel Day, so to celebrate we are offering $.50 off your pretzel purchase and some free samples at Pretzel Logic in the Hilltop Food Court, and in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Pretzel Logic will sprinkle pink salt on the pretzels.

Here are some fun facts about pretzels: The largest pretzel ever made was 40 lbs and measured 5 feet across. It was made in Pennsylvania where coincidentally the average annual pretzel consumption is 20 pounds per person. More than $550 million worth of pretzels are sold in the US annually; 80% are made in Pennsylvania, where the hard pretzel originated.
