In my country the pretzel were rounded. They look similar to the Italian pretzels known as Taraliis.

Every morning around 10:30am-11:30am, a woman with a basket on her head will walk around the towns and or villages, tossing the pretzels in a small bag to children and older folk. Other times it is cookies, bon-bon, as we call it, popcorn and or the best kind of snack, Sugar Canes. The other half of my family from Belize do something similar, but never made rounded pretzels, we tend to get more fruit

One loop. These are Unitarian pretzels, not those of Fred Rogers.

That thought crossed my mind as I saw the picture, but then I held back from saying anything so that no one would get the idea that SuziQ's pretzel stick favorites were actually just "bite-size torture stakes." (Somehow "hot cross buns" seems like a much easier name for a marketing team to promote.)

By the way, some people might think that when Space Merchant mentioned that he was a unitarian, that this was the same as claiming to be a non-Witness Unitarian. Witnesses are Unitarian believers.

I thought hot cross buns were only British, are they in  America also?

Don't know but I'm in Devon England and I've always eaten them and the so called easter eggs. Buns and chocolate yum yum.

I remember working with a few brothers on a building site (two brothers owned the business) and i had mince pies. I offered them around and no one would have one. I thought it was so funny. 

Remember, it's not what goes into the mouth that defiles a person, it's what come out of the mouth that can defile a person.

Yes, but sadly, a lot of Unitarians, well some, do not believe in pre-existence, people like Sir Anthony Buzzard, 3rd Baronet. We know the Jehovah's Witnesses are technically Unitarians, but most Unitarians do not want to say that, thus being put in an agreeing/disagreeing state with those who believe in pre-existence vs. not believing in pre-existence. Muslims are also aware of this also, but are oblivious to the fact that Jehovah's Witnesses are not too far off from Unitarians.

I myself believe in pre-existence of God's Son.... And the very clear detest of the Trinity.

 

That being said, you'd be amazed how cleaver some people tend to get with snacks. Stuff like this:

Or someone people can "literal" eat the bread of the Christ:
