Famous Tell City Pretzels originated over 100 years ago in 1858 when Casper Gloor, master baker from Switzerland settled in Tell City, Indiana as a member of the Swiss Colonization Society. Gloor soon became known for the fine pretzel he baked from a secret recipe that he brought from Switzerland. The fine quality, unique taste and unique krunch of the pretzels come in many different flavors. Visit the Tell City Pretzel Factory for a tour and opportunity to twist pretzels.
