Treat yourself to a free pretzel after hitting the polls Tuesday! Philly Pretzel Factory and Auntie Anne’s are celebrating National Pretzel day with one free pretzel per customer.
This is Philly Pretzel Factory’s ninth year celebrating the holiday with one free pretzel to every customer. According their Facebook page, the first 100 guests at participating stores will receive one free pretzel every day of May.
Customers who downloaded Auntie Anne's “My Pretzel Perks” app by 11:59 p.m. Monday have the choice of one free original or Cinnamon Sugar pretzel. Those free pretzels can be redeemed from April 26 through May 1. Additionally, five lucky app winners will be randomly selected on National Pretzel Day to receive free pretzels for an entire year.
The holiday originated back 1983 when Rep. Robert Walker announced that his favorite food should have its own day of celebration. Gov. Ed Rendell re-declared the commemorative holiday back in April 2003 to recognize the popular food’s importance to the state’s history.
