National Soft Pretzel Month

Few food scents rival chestnuts roasting on an open fire, but the aroma of a hot soft pretzel comes close.

Few food scents rival chestnuts roasting on an open fire, but the aroma of a hot soft pretzel comes close. Perhaps the two are in a knotted tie!

Be sure to get your fix of this doughy, delicious delight in April, National Soft Pretzel Month. They’re easy to find, as most of Bergen County’s malls are blessed with pretzel stands—Bergen Town Center is home to a Wetzels Pretzels while Garden State Plaza has three Wetzels. Over at Paramus Park, Auntie Anne’s will surely satisfy your craving. Of course, you’ll likely spot a vendor or two at a ballpark, carnival or fair.

Most of those makers will even let you watch as the bakers flip, twist and tie the treats before they’re baked. The only dilemma: Will you eat it plain, with mustard or another dipping sauce? Enjoy!
