    I have to say, the seller went to great lengths on this. I appreciate his creativity; for example, he wrote a poem about the red pretzel and posted it on the item's page:

    Oh, little red pretzel
    You are so beautiful and red
    I know you must taste salty and good
    But I cannot bring myself to eat you

    Your redness is never-fading
    You are not the color of a bloodbath
    No, you are rather the color of a beautiful sunset
    An eternal sunset tied into a crisped doughy knot

    Was it fate that brought you into my bag of snacky-snacks?
    Was it pure luck? Was it a coincidence?
    I think that you are a blessing in disguise
    Red pretzel, you amaze me

    You came in a bag of Rold Golds
    They lied to me! They lied, I say! You are not golden in color! You are red!
    Shall I sue the company's quality control department?
    No, no, I cannot. I will not curse your creators

    You are too beautiful, you are too wonderful
    You are red, you are a pretzel
    You are too beautiful, wonderful, red, and pretzel-like to remain with me forever
    Alas, I am compelled to share your splendor with the world

    being a writer and poet myself, that is horrible, all the more reason that this is pathetic....i appreciate this efforts, but seriously, its a bit far and ridiculous for a stupid pretzel, im just glad that bidding isnt too high on this, there are people with some sense out there i suppose

    back in NYC!
    "The pretzel is so red that I can only look at it with one eye at a time. EXTREME! It's the reason I bought an eyepatch."

    I am struggling to find anything to say, although I feel that this eBay item should be commented on. The whole idea of selling a pretzel on eBay is just... bizzare. :p

    I would laugh like H3ll if he sold it for .99 and then it turned out to be the winning piece in a manufacturer $1,000,000 give away! Like the grey M&M's.

    Everyone knows that the purpose of Ebay is to sell Pez dispensers and their accessories. However, it seems that the definition of "Pez accessories" includes odd-looking food, not just wedding dresses modeled by men, kid's concert tickets being sold to punish them, human body parts, and other fine collectibles.
