A Pretzel is a type of baked bread product made from dough most commonly shaped into a twisted knot. Pretzels originated in Europe, possibly among monks in the Early Middle Ages. The name means 'small reward'.

The hard pretzel is thought to have originated in the US in 1850 at Lititz, PA, with baker Julius Sturgis.
