I stopped by a Philly Pretzel Factory today and asked for a pretzel. The guy behind the counter asked me if I wanted one from the "middle" or the "end". I'm guessing that the ones in the middle might be a little more chewy than the ones on the end?
Still, I have lived in South Philly all my life and have never been asked "middle" or "end" when asking for a pretzel. I was never that aware of any difference.
So...all of you pretzel connoisseurs, which is it for you? Middle or End?
