Today the Philly Soft Pretzel Factory is introducing a Philadelphia-themed Frankenfood that seems like a no-brainer when you say it. Say hello to the Cheesesteak Pretzel, which the hometown Inquirer describes as “kind of like a log of baked soft-pretzel dough filled with cheesesteak.” (Steak in a log?) The photo on the pretzel chain’s official site leaves the matter of what type of cheese is used to bind this thing’s innards somewhat unclear, but one would think that the traditional “Whiz” filling would hold up best under preservation-requiring conditions.
