Where does ๐Ÿฅจ Pretzel emoji come from?


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 ๐Ÿฅจ 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 an 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 ๐Ÿฅจ ? It only came about in 2017, as part of Unicode 10.0 and Emoji 5.0, well after the bread ๐Ÿž, pizza ๐Ÿ•, and hot dog ๐ŸŒญ emoji appeared. What gives? Oh well, we have it’s emoji deliciousness now so use it tastefully, friends. 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.
