This entry really should be under the category "fashion." These Pretzel Necklaces are very popular at beer festivals. They come in many varieties. This one is alternating butter-flavored mini-pretzels between giant crunchy sea salt pretzels. The necklace itself can be anything from twine to fancy gold chain. But what I love about these necklaces the most, is how useful they can be . . .
If you're an introvert at a party or a software conference, nothing says "talk to me," more than a Pretzel Necklace. People will ask you how you got the idea (tell them you read it here!). Who knows where the conversation can go from there.
From casual sampling, I can tell you that the pretzels break off easily without a lot of mess and the necklace still looks great even when just a few pretzels are left. But if I had an opportunity to do a more comprehensive product test, I think I might start the day off with at least as many pretzels as items I had on my to-do list. Then each time I accomplished something, I would reward myself. Towards the end of the day, with the dozens of pretzels I would most certainly still have left, I would feed the pigeons at the park and the fish in the lake. These pretzels could also be very handy on a walkathon or if you get lost in the desert, to prevent dehydration and give you calories for the miles ahead. Don't forget, Hansel and Gretel left a trail of crumbs to find their way back out of the woods, maybe they should have hung pretzels on the tree limbs to mark their path back, it might have turned out better for them. Or maybe it would have attracted a large momma bear and they would have met an entirely different but equally tragic fate. If you ask me, properly handled with food-safety principles, and packaged attractively, they could also make a nice gift. Don't forget the Mustard Dip.
