Happy National Pretzel Day

Mmm... baked, salty dough with signature knot. Just add mustard!
In 2003, Governor Ed Rendell declared April 26th National Pretzel Day to acknowledge the importance of the pretzel in Pennsylvania's history and economy. The PA pretzel timeline started in 1861, when the Sturgis Pretzel House in Lititz became the first commercial pretzel bakery in the United States. Then the Reading Pretzel Machinery Company introduced the first automatic pretzel twisting machine in 1935. And in 1993, the Pretzel Museum opened in Philadelphia. I wonder what happened in PA Pretzel history today?
