    Hi Kevin, I live in Chesterton Indiana where we have the European Market every Saturday. There is a Ben’s pretzel booth. They are to die for!, always a long like waiting. They were also at the Indiana State fair this year. A big hit there too. I enjoy reading your columns, thank you, Jill

    My dad lives in valparaiso and the pretzels were there every Tuesday at their market. They are amazing. Just had one on Saturday from Chesterton. Way better and bigger than any sold at the malls.
