National Pretzel Day is an also-ran in the world of food holidays. It's not a food we give a whole lot of time. (Though, I'm sure the people at your local mall-based pretzels shop would disagree.)

Nonetheless, National Pretzel Day arrives on April 26. With it, naturally, comes a pile of discounted pretzels. On offer are soft pretzels and crunchy pretzels and... well, that kind of covers it. Oh, pretzel buns! There's one more. You're going to find deals from Wetzel's Pretzels, Auntie Anne's, Wendy's, and more on National Pretzel Day, and we've pulled them all together to make sure you aren't exerting yourself too much on this fine day.
