National Pretzel Day


It's National Pretzel Day tomorrow! To celebrate, Pretzelmaker & Pretzel Time stores will be giving away free pretzels all day!

Of course, there's a slight catch... they are asking for customers to sing for their snack.

Can you say: Awesome!

All you have to do is visit your local Pretzelmaker on Monday, April 26th and sing a snippet from any song of your choice in exchange for a free pretzel. Get your vocal chords ready & go show 'em what the world is missing since you never followed your dreams and made it to the stages of Broadway.

Honestly, if you're like me, this could just be a great excuse to break out in song in a public place. It will be like LIVING IN A MUSICAL!!

Rock the house! Maybe you'll be discovered.

Oh yeah... and enjoy your free pretzel, too. (Whatever. Like that's really what it's all about.)


(Okay, if you don't want to sing you only have to mention National Pretzel Day. But where's the fun in that?)

I love the singing idea and wonder if I could get my kids to fall for it?
Thanks for the heads up. I'm thinking pretzels sound great for our FHE treat- especially if they're free!

What tune will you be belting Gerb? Hmmmmmm?

Gerb said...

Natalie- For real, they do want people to "Sing for their snack"... but for those who are too shy to do so, they can wimp out and just mention National Pretzel Day. I'm telling my kids that if they don't sing they don't get one. Because I'm a jerk that way. It rocks.

Shannon- Well, it has to be musical theater for sure. I'm waffling back and forth between 'Gorgeous' from The Apple Tree or 'Doatsy Mae' from The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. Do you have any other ideas for me?

I'm also debating this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BgBr1pt9r44

Honestly....THANK YOU! Pretzels rock and so does belting it out in public. There's nothing amateur about this little number! Boom! (okay, I'm a bit excited...I should probably calm down.) Thanks for sharing!

Shannon said...

Unfortunately, I know neither of those tunes...I probably would have done something plain like a simple rendition of "My Favorite Things" - substituting one of the listed items for the almighty pretzel, of course....with your brood, you could have done the whole "Farewell, Goodnight..." scene and gotten pretzels for all! Alas, National Pretzel Day is almost over anyway...what did you end up singing?

Cara said...

I tell you what, I just want to go to a pretzelmaker now and watch people sing!

I am such a slacker…I got home from school, read your post, and now I don't want to head out again. Sometimes it's just nice to be home.

Maybe I'll sing for my supper next year.

Why didn't I see this earlier? I would have totally rocked the house!

It's fun to see your 9 cute kids! That's so awesome! I'm sure you have material from the kids for many posts to come!

Take care. Have a good FHE.

We went to sing and get our free pretzels. Before we burst into song, we heard them tell the lady in front of us (who asked about it and didn't sing!) that they were out of their free pretzel dough so they had no more to give away. And we're talking mid afternoon here. It wasn't like it was 10:00 at night or something. How disappointing. What is the difference between free pretzel dough and pretzel dough you have to pay for anyway? Don't they both have the same ingredients?

Gerb said...

Well, everyone, if you read Holmes' comment, the same thing happened to me. I'd love to hear if it actually worked for anyone? I sent an email to the company because my kids were SO disappointed. (Okay, I was too.) We had all practiced our songs and everything. Holmes... did you go to PTC or University? We went to PTC at around 5:00 pm. She told me that they had no more free dough, but we could still buy some! Nice ploy, Pretzeltime. I'm making my own soft pretzels today instead.

Holmes said...

We went to PTC. We were probably there an hour or so before you were. I heard the employee tell the lady in front of me that they had a lot more people show up than they expected and they ran out of "free" dough very quickly. Can't believe they didn't plan better. And if they were going to set limits, they should have advertised "to the first 100 people" or something like that. Good for you for making your own soft pretzels today!
