D was raised in Philadelphia and has not been back for 20 years. A Philly pretzel is one of the 3 things he misses from Philly. Cheesesteaks and Italian Ice are the other two.

If you were to watch The Phillies at a home game, you can bet that you would be munching on some fresh-made Philadelphia soft pretzels. So close your eyes, take a bite and let your imagination take you there.
We were about to leave for the game when he got a call from the team coach that all games for the day are cancelled due to poor air quality (because of the brush fires all over SoCal). D was a little disappointed but told him we can bake them again for the team party in two weeks.
We got to enjoy lots of pretzels yesterday. And I bet while munching these fresh-made Philadelphia soft pretzels, D felt he was back in Philly, even for just a little while.
