lostcat: As a high school exchange student in southern Germany, I learned about the joy of a pretzel sliced in half and slathered with butter to make a butter sandwich (butterbretzel). They sell them all over the place.
Ghastly: Everything would be fine if the Chinese would stop snorting farking powdered pretzels to get boners.
grumpfuff: My girlfriend is from Bavaria, so I'm getting a kick.
Delay: I've been in Bavaria at Oktoberfest. Almost all the German men there were Nazis, and proud of it. The women were serving the Nazis beer. They gave more beer to the brown shirts than the tourists.This is another phony German BS "we love you all" strategy.
mutterfark: Can I drink a nice California Champagne while I'm eating them?
enry: I have to keep telling my daughter that I sent her pretzel to a farm upstate.
P. Yorck: Even if the EU is a little inflationary when granting that status, I get the idea for products that are exported from their region of origin. But that kind of pretzel is only really good on the day it was baked anyway. Show me anyone who thought they were getting pretzels from Bavaria and got cheap Chinese knock-offs instead.
namegoeshere: Bavarian pretzels, the large ones, are also useful in self defense. When you are wandering around a street fair and a large woman tries to kill you by impaling you on the knives that she has hidden in her enormous breasts, you can stick your Bavarian pretzel onto the boob-blades, rendering them harmless.
Fubegra: That ought to give George W. Bush nightmares.

Show me anyone who thought they were getting pretzels from Bavaria and got cheap Chinese knock-offs instead.In this case it could be more a matter of principle about mislabeling food within the EU. Ie., you can't call something Italian Pizza, unless its actually from Italy, or Champagne unless its from the region of Champagne. (the California Champagne example earlier in this thread is interesting. That wouldn't be legal in the EU, but obviously no consumer would confuse it for a Champagne from the region of Champagne either, since it also includes California in its name.)Though I guess people could make crappy pretzels, call them Bavarian pretzels, thus ruining their image making noone wanting to go to their beer fest or something.
Pinnacle Point: The pretzels from Munich bakeries are so damn good. Though I think they soak them in lye to make the outsides so leathery, so they're likely bad for you. Germandeli.com out of Texas will ship Bavarian style pretzels on ice UPS. Closest thing I can find in the US./that's my story bro
