Origin of Pretzels

Christianity abstains from eating meat during Lent, but in the 400s, Christians in ancient Rome avoided consuming dairy products in addition to meat. At this time, the origin of the pretzel was bread made with only flour, water and salt. The shape of the bread is modeled after the ancient Romans prayed with their arms crossed and their hands on the opposite shoulder.

It was first built in the 7th century by a monk from northern Italy or southern France to reward children who had read prayers well, and named it "pretiola", meaning "little statue". This crossed over to Germany and became "bretzel". In the 18th century, the Dutch community of Pennsylvania, who immigrated to the United States from Germany and Switzerland, also enjoyed the pretzel. In 1861, pretzels in the form of hard cookies were first made at the "Sturgis Pretzel House" in Ritz, Pennsylvania, and they spread around the world.
