Previous discussion at: http://www.chaletian.com/forum/archive/AE_Bread_Twists_260105.htm

While reading today's archive list, it occurred to me that fancy bread twists could have been what I consider a soft pretzel. When I visited in Germany, the relatives served these -- warm and sliced in half, with butter, and most yummy -- for special Sunday breakfast and at Kaffeetrinken (daily 4:00 ritual -- though again, the pretzels weren't for every day. They had to come from the bakery.) ETA I just read the archived part and saw Rosie had already mentioned bread pretzels. Oh, well. Just to emphasize that they were served with other rolls etc.

I had always thought they might have been similar to croissants. To me, when I'm in Germany, pretzels are always covered with salt. Haven't seen any other kind.

I always thought they were a sort of croissant too. Or a type of brioche maybe?

The pretzels did have some salt, though not a huge amount. It's just I grew up thinking of pretzels as crunchy snack foods popular with beer, or as soft tourist treats sold by sidewalk vendors, whereas the ones in Germany appeared with other bread sorts of things at very civilized Kaffeetrinken or Frühstuck. So, I wondered whether perhaps my pigeonholing pretzels as snack foods kept me from thinking of them as potential "bread twists." This was on the German/Swiss border, btw.

When I went to Austria they seemed to be selling pretzels everywhere, so maybe the Chalest bread twists were pretzels

Does anyone know if you can still buy the chocolate covered pretzels that came out a few years ago? Cos they were lovely and morish and I can't find them anywhere :crying:

In Australia (or at least at my local shopping centre, Southland) there's a pretzel stall that makes chocolate-covered pretzels. I've just to let myself buy one...

A bread twist is two strips of dough of even width and twisted like a braid.

My pleasure. Now does this mean I get an extra big bit of chocolate slice as a reward, I wonder...?

I think it all depends on if you survive the rugby scrum surrounding the tray! Laughing
