Malls and soft pretzels have a symbiotic relationship, much like bald eagle hatchlings and William Howard Taft's toupee. Take a lesson in mutualism with today's Groupon: for $4, you get $8 worth of pretzels and smoothies at Pretzelmaker in the Cordova Mall. Offering classic shopping center fare, Pretzelmaker sells a variety of pretzels ($2.29+), pretzel dogs ($3.09), and blended drinks ($3.99). The cinnamon swirl pretzel is drizzled with sweet cream cheese icing while the parmesan coats tongue buds with a taste of the Old World. Dunk your pretzel in one of nine sauces, including caramel, cream cheese, nacho cheese, honey mustard, Tab, and pizza. Smoothies, another mall staple, come in mango, pomegranate, raspberry, and mocha flavors.
Pretzelmaker draws its inspiration from fifth-century German monks, who are credited with inventing the first pretzels to reward children’s good deeds. Today, freshly baked pretzels and pretzel bites, seasoned with flavors ranging from iced cinnamon-swirl to barbecue chipotle, along with the old standby salt, reward any craving. To enhance the scrumptious experience, Pretzelmaker offers a selection of dipping sauces, including cheddar and caramel.
