Free pretzels today for National Pretzel Day

    And you thought the lines at your local Philly Pretzel Factory were long on a regular Friday.

    Today is National Pretzel Day. Mock if you must, but do it while standing in line for your free pretzel.

    The soft pretzel makers is giving everyone a free pretzel in honor of the holiday, no purchase necessary. Strict NPD observers will qualify for one free pretzel every day in May if they’re among the first 100 people in line.
