[smartslider2 slider=”2″]Pretzels, they say, were invented by a monk that wanted to reward children for memorizing their prayers. The foldy twisty part is sort of a take on crossed arms in prayer. Others say that the pretzel shape is all about hugs. Still others claim that it’s all a cover up for bakers that have poor bagel forming mojo.
But what really matters is how pretzels found their way into the Blacksburg Bagel line up. One fated day we decided to try out a new process by starting the dough the day before. Letting it go for an overnight rise made for a very different product. Different but still familiar. They didn’t taste like bagels, but instead reminded us of the more sour flavor of a pretzel. So we took some time to test new ideas out and now we have some great choices for you to pick from!
