Pretz- coming from Japan, these long and crunchy pretzel sticks serve as a savory snack marketed for kids and adults alike! Many are familiar with Pocky, which has a similar base to Pretz but coated with a sweet cover such as chocolate or strawberry.
Nussbrezel- coming from Germany, these translate to “nut pretzel” in English. It is a sweet pretzel made up of a yeast dough with nuts, sugar, and cinnamon mixed in. It also has a filling and can sometimes be found glazed as well!
Kringle- coming from Denmark, this sweet and flaky treat is made from a mixture of almond paste and custard twisted in a pretzel shape. Commonly found sprinkled with sugar, almonds, and other sweet toppings. Primarily seen as a breakfast pastry, this Danish treat is often enjoyed with coffee or tea!
