My Beloved Pretzels

Last month when I was on my way home from Cebu to Cagayan de Oro, I dropped by the Duty Free Shop in the Mactan International Airport. I was searching for something to buy to take home with me and of course I headed to the section where the munchies are.

After scanning the shelves for something to take me home, a bag of Snyder's of Hanover Pretzels struck my fancy and I bought it for $3 only. I have always loved pretzels even though I don't get to buy them just about anywhere. I like it that they are hard, crispy, and salty due to the coarse salt crystals. Imported pretzels and other stuff are usually found in duty-free shops or improted sections in super markets. I wish I bought more since my bag of pretzels already ran out. Next time I should stock up some more.

One thing I love about a pretzel is its shape. It looks like a cute heart. Back in the middle ages, the pretzel's loops stood for everlasting love.
