April 26 is National Pretzel Day. The EU recently added the soft Bavarian pretzel to its protected origins list (where it joins the likes of Stilton cheese and Parma ham). Now only pretzels produced in Bavaria can be sold as Bayerische breze, or Bavarian pretzel. Accept no substitutes, Damen und Herren.
