Summary
What you 'knead' to know about National Pretzel Day. 🥨

"Miss Congeniality" fans will never forget that April 25 is the "perfect date" because "it’s not too hot, not too cold. All you need is a light jacket."

Fans of "The Office" may know Pretzel Day as Stanley Hudson's favorite day.  It is a celebration of the beloved entwined bakery snack, originally proclaimed nationally in 1983.

It was later promoted by Pennsylvania governor Ed Rendell in 2003 as Philadelphians eat almost 12 times more pretzels than the average American. Today, Pennsylvania still produces 80 percent of pretzels in the U.S., according to The Philadelphia Tribune.

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.
