Back in the day the nice German guy at Starr pretzel factory (Starr and Knickerbocker) would let us get them straight off the conveyor belt as they left the ovens at
They were 5 cents each

We all had little money so on Sundays my grandfather, uncle and I would fill these big gutted baby carriages up and sell them at St.Abolisius church on Sunday.
Sometimes the pretzels were still hot
I think they were a bag of 5 for a dollar
