Who doesn’t love a hot, warm pretzel? With a little butter, a dash of salt and some dipping sauces, a pretzel can be an ultimate snack food. Plus, it goes really well with an ice cold beer. Like the cotton candy reference, sometimes pretzels can be a hard pass.

Who hasn’t visited Disney Parks just to get a Mickey pretzel? That iconic shape with Cinderella’s Castle in the background is a wonderful vacation memory, but did you really enjoy that pretzel? Was it just food to curb the hunger?

Have you ever wondered how long a pretzel sits on that cart? It isn’t that those pretzels are stale, but they aren’t as tasty as a fresh, hot pretzel. If you are starving, it works in a pinch. But, why not search the theme park for a better version of the pretzel.

For example, NBC Grill and Brew at Universal’s City Walk has an amazing, gigantic pretzel. It is almost as big as a child’s head (check out the picture). Served warm with mustard and beer cheese, this pretzel is theme park worthy.

Again, when it comes to the worst theme park foods, it is about choices. Do a little research and find the best food choices.
