Pretzels are deemed by many to be a delicious salty, crunchy snack, while others see them as little more than hard, stale-tasting lumps of dried out dough.
Either way, it's unlikely anyone will have the opportunity to form opinions on how the 250-year-old one dug up by German archaeologists tastes.
It's believed to be the oldest pretzel ever found.
Researchers came upon it while digging at a Bavarian locale that will ultimately become the site of a regional history museum.
A couple of other baked goods were also found.
All three were burnt, leading the scientists to believe that they were tossed out by a disappointed chef.
Though the charred nibbles apparently didn't make their baker very happy, the team that recently found them is beyond thrilled.
Overall, the location has been a fruitful one, producing remains of a wooden house that dates back 1200 years.
