National Pretzel Day is here once again! Whether you’re a fan of the big and soft kind of the small and crunchy variety, it’s a great day to kick back and enjoy all things salty. And luckily for you, this Thursday, April 26 there are a bunch of pretzel purveyors getting in on the celebration with free pretzels and more. Here are the two Quad Cities spots you can score a free snack:
The go-to shopping mall (or Walmart!) pretzel joint has a BOGO deal for the day. Buy any pretzel and you can get a Classic Pretzel for free as long as you’re signed up for the My Pretzel Perks program. The chain also released some pretty cute clothing and accessories with Threadless to help you show off your love of all things pretzel.
Possibly the best deal of all, head into any of Wetzel’s Pretzels’ 340-plus locationsacross the country on April 26 and you get a free Original Pretzel. No purchase necessary, just a free dang pretzel! But wait, there’s more: Take a photo of your pretzel and tag it #nationalwetzelday (we see what you did there, Wetzel’s) and you’ll get a code to redeem for another free pretzel via the Wetzel’s Pretzels app valid through May 31. Yes, that’s two free pretzels.
Of course, another great way to celebrate National Pretzel Day is to make your own pretzels at home. Try this German Soft Pretzels recipe or make some Soft Pretzel Sticks, and here’s a list of everything you’ll need to get started.
