Free Pretzels on National Pretzel Day, April 26, 2023

by Donna Ryder

I think we all remember reading about pretzel's invention by Italian monks in 610 AD. Trust me, it was big news.

But did you know April 26 is National Pretzel Day? You didn't? LIAR! Of course you did, I just told you. Geez, pay attention.

As in years past, a variety of stores are giving out free pretzels on Tuesday, April 26, 2022 with no purchase necessary!

2022 Free Pretzel Offers

  • Auntie Anne's – Free Original or Cinnamon Sugar Pretzel available to Pretzel Perks members. This is their free rewards program that will also trigger their annual free birthday pretzel!
  • Ben's Soft Pretzels – Free pretzel from 2-7 pm.
  • Philly Pretzel Factory – Free pretzel from 7am-7pm.
  • Pretzelmaker – When I asked if they're doing anything in 2022, Pretzelmaker told me “Could be 👀🥨❤️” which is Corporate Speak for “yes, but we haven't announced what the freebie is yet.” In previous years, they offered a free salted or unsalted pretzel.
  • Wetzel's Pretzels – Free Original Pretzel to all guests after 3pm.

Any Hiffers remember how Prezelmaker used to make people tell a joke in order to get this freebie? Glad to see they backed off my turf 🙂 Good times.

Like usual, if you know of any I missed, please share in the comments.
