Mitch and Michelle put the very specialized craft beer pretzels and the very generic "Snak Favorites" to the test in Crunch Time.
Just in time for Lent, the Pretzel Podcast uncovers the details behind a 1970s movement that sought to harness the godly power of pretzels. We meet writer and recovering anthropologist Shoshi Parks, who penned an article on the Pretzels for God movement for Gastro Obscura. Plus, Michelle shares the story of her husband's first successful efforts to make high quality pretzels at home. And on Crunch Time, Mitch and Michelle try Unique Pretzel's new Sourdough Craft Beer pretzels, and the decidedly less-unique "Snak Favorites," about which little is known.
