About National Pretzel Day National Pretzel Day is annually celebrated on April 26. The day was originally established more than 30 years ago by U.S. Representative Robert S. Walker (Pa.). It was then re-declared by Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell in 2003 to acknowledge the importance of the pretzel to his state's history and economy. Today, 80% of pretzels consumed by Americans are made in Pennsylvania, where hard pretzels originated. The average U.S. citizen consumes up to two pounds of pretzels per year, with the exception of Philadelphians, who snack on approximately 12 pounds of pretzels per year!!
