Recipe of the Month
When it comes to Walt Disney World snacks, I’m a sucker for a good pretzel. Thankfully, there’s a wide variety of options from which to choose. More often than not, I grab the traditional Mickey pretzel. But, little did I know that there is another type of soft pretzel hiding in Epcot’s World Showcase.
The jumbo German soft pretzels that are sold at the kiosks and Sommerfest Counter Service locations in the Germany pavilion are a sight to be seen. They are literally bigger than your head! They’re also different from the average pretzels that you’ll find in the parks. With a darker color and crisper exterior, they have a more developed flavor. Warm, salty, and chewy, they go well with a side of mustard and a German beer. These pretzels are perfect for sharing and should be shared since they run about $10.00 each. I usually tend to grab a sweet snack in Germany, but these are great if a savory craving strikes.
Unfortunately, trips to the World are few and far between. It’s not convenient for us to hit the parks once a craving for a soft pretzel hits. While there are frozen pretzels at the local grocery store, they just don’t fit the bill. The solution: make them at home! You’d be surprised by just how easy it is to whip up a batch of authentic German soft pretzels.
