  Sturgis Pretzel Bakery
by NitnyLeo

Being the good host that I am, I took some guests to Lititz. They fell in love with the Sturgis Pretzel Bakery building and just had to see the inside. I'm glad they did. It was an interesting little tour that included hands-on pretzel rolling.
The building was built in 1784. Eventually, Julius Sturgis, the town baker, became the householder. It was in 1850 that he started making pretzels. By 1861, the pretzels had become so popular, that Sturgis stopped baking bread and only made pretzels...the USA's first pretzel bakery.
If you are fond of hard pretzels, buy Hammond's. They're the best. Sturgis pretzels are too skinny (IMHO).
