๐Ÿฅจย - pretzel emoji

or pretzel emoji

[pret-suh l ih-moh-jee]

What doesย ๐Ÿฅจ mean?

The salty, crunchy delight of a really good pretzel is somewhat represented in social media by an emoji that falls a bit flat in conveying a pretzel's utter deliciousness.

Each digital platform uses basically the same form, a round shape with twisted strands, colored in golden brown and topped with white specks of salt.


It's used in posts about pretzels and other baked treats.

Iโ€™m so hungry but Iโ€™m refusing to eat right now so I can eat an obscene amount of @AuntieAnnes pretzel nuggets at the mall later. ๐Ÿฅจ #priorities

Want some pretzel history … here you go!

Pretzels go back to European monasteries of the Middle Ages, when dough was rolled out and twisted into bite-size knots.

The pretzel emoji looks a lot like the kind of mass-produced pretzels you buy in bags at the grocery store, and while those certainly satisfy cravings for something crunchy and salty … a pillowy, fresh-baked pretzel is another animal. Over the years, in a attempt to gourmet-up the modest treat, pretzels have taken on all kinds of flavoring partners, from cheese to chocolate, spices to sweet glazes. And don’t forget all the pretzel dips. Swoon.

Why did it take so long to get a pretzel emoji? It only came about in 2017, as part of Unicode 10.0 and Emoji 5.0, well after the bread, pizza, and hot dog emoji appeared. What gives? Oh well, we have it’s emoji deliciousness now so use it tastefully, friends.

๐Ÿฅจ in ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ—ฝ Pretzels at Brooklyn Bridge in New York City. I've been wanting to visit this place ever since a follower tagged me on a photo here back in 2014. Finally got to realize that dream four years later ๐Ÿ˜Œ Thanks for the inspiration @tammeeek! This is Brooklyn Bridge, one of the oldest suspension bridge in USA that connects Brooklyn to Manhattan. It was opened 135 years ago in 1883 to accomodate commuters who worked in Manhattan but lived outside the borough. Pretzels first made landfall in America in Philadelphia, but this style with coarse salt is a New Yorker thing. #shotoniphone #iphonexsmax #pretzels #๐Ÿฅจ #newyork ๐Ÿ—ฝ ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ Check out @girleatworld for more great content.

The pretzel emoji is also used to sell beer and wine and in posts about German and other European foods and cultures.

The pretzel emoji is also used when the thing being celebrated is … perhaps … a very distant, yummy, delicious cousin to the pretzel.
