Pretzels were invented not as a way to increase bakery sales, but as a way to provide an outlet for the ceremonial stealing and weaving of the baker's bread. Finally stop snatching loaves with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of pretzels and smoothies at Pretzelmaker, located in the Cordova Mall.
The pretzel parade at Pretzelmaker flattens the munchies with floats culled from a menu of twisted dough, hot-dog creations, and blended drinks. Pretzels ($2.29+) show up fashionably late to taste-bud bashes in a variety of sweet and savory costumes, ranging from the familiar cinnamon sugar or parmesan to the more exotic ranch or caramel crunch. Like the Wall Street Journal’s scratch-and-sniff edition, pretzel dogs ($3.09) combine familiar favorites into an unexpected package. Ice down chew-fatigued mouths with a decadent smoothie ($3.99) composed of festive flavors including 24-karat cookie, lemon twist, and cool cappuccino. Diners pair eats with condiments chosen from a lineup of piquant dipping sauces, perfect for flooding tiny cities made entirely out of pretzel bites ($2.99–$4.99).
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.
