Bread with salt called BREZEL or PREZEL

PREZEL, very well with a cool beer

Pretzel are popular in southern Germany and adjoining German-speaking areas (Province of Bolzano included), as well as in some areas of the United States, is basically made from wheat flour, water and yeast, glazed with lye, usually sprinkled with coarse salt, hand-sized and made for consumption on the same day. To avoid confusion with any other pretzel kind, German speakers call this variety "Laugenbrezel" (lye pretzel). Font: Wikipedia
