BITE SIZED PRETZEL FUN FACTS

Learn more about the fresh-baked pretzel everyone knows and loves.

Pretzels were born when an Italian monk rewarded his students with twisted dough resembling arms folded to pray. He called them “little rewards.”

“Auntie” Anne Beiler and her husband Jonas purchased a farmers market stand in Pa. in 1988. They created a pretzel “better than the best you’ve ever tasted.”

You could fill the seats in Citizens Bank Park, home of the Philadelphia Phillies baseball team, with the number of Pretzel Dogs Auntie Anne’s sells in a single weekend.

Our Pretzel Dogs are made with Nathan’s Famous® Hot Dogs, known for a Hot Dog Eating Contest with a current record of 69 hot dogs and buns consumed in 10 minutes.

In just four years, Auntie Anne’s has donated more than 8 million pretzel products to local hunger-relief agencies through a partnership with the Food Donation Connection.

In February of 2014, Auntie Anne’s celebrated its 26th birthday. If birthdays were miles, the company would be extremely close to completing a marathon.
