They were also sometimes sold by independent pretzel men, who warmed them over charcoal grills, but unlike the characterless soft pretzels of today, they were much thicker, much crustier on the outside, and especially much chewier inside, more like a good bagel than the bready things sold today.

More to the point, does anyone know where such soft pretzels can still be found today?
