When one goes to grab a snack, the average person usually won't go for the bag of pretzels. According to statista.com, out of the roughly estimated 329.76 million people in the United States, only 178.24 million Americans actually eat pretzels. Today—however—pretzels were my go-to snack. As I stood in front of the vending machine— looking at the different choices between chips, granola bars, and fruit snacks— for some reason, the pretzels caught my eye. Those salty, crisp, twisted pretzels became the thing to save me from my starvation. My sister and I sometimes discuss that people usually don't crave pretzels, unless they see someone else eating them. Not today! I punched the numbers in on the machine pad and watched the metal mechanics turn, releasing my snack. I rushed into my classroom, took a seat, and ripped open the bag. Those salty demons made my mouth dry, but I didn't care. As I ate them like a greedy child, my classmates looked wide-eyed at me. I felt sorry for them, so I offered them some pretzels too. They nodded like scavengers and helped me gobble down the snack. One of the students said they hadn't eaten pretzels in such a long time. So, maybe there is some truth to the observation that my sister and I made.
Weird fun pretzel fact:
According to Mobile-Cuisine.com, "President George W. Bush was munching on a pretzel in the White House when he choked and lost consciousness while watching the 2002 Baltimore-Miami NFL playoff."
