Did you know that pretzels were originally created by German monks to resemble folded arms? Long strips of dough were formed into circles and crossed at the ends. They were made and given to children as a reward for learning their prayers.
Located at Westfield Marion, Pretzel Mania bakes a broad range of fresh pretzels in-store every day using natural ingredients. Their pretzels are hand-rolled from scratch, baked to golden brown and served hot. They can be eaten either as a snack or a meal.
Although not quite the same as those you'd get in Germany, my cheese pretzel was nonetheless tasty and flavourful. The smell of the pretzels as they emerge from the oven captured my attention straight away. Other pretzel varieties on offer include both sweet and savoury options such as cinnamon delight, almond crunch, hot jalapeno, and twisted pepperoni. Do check them out next time you're in Westfield Marion.
