These look so good, I used to make homemade soft pretzels years ago, I know my recipe had only like 1 tablespoon of white sugar so I am curious about what the 1/3 cup of brown sugar will taste like...yummy I'll bet! I have a few questions; what is this soda water? soda as in seltzer or soda as in baking soda? I noticed the picture of the pretzels seem to be salted with a coarse salt but the recipe says to dip them in butter and they don't look like they have been dipped in butter so do you do one or the other...butter OR salt or both? Thank you...sorry to be a bother but I would like to try this recipe and would rather have them come out right.

I was going to ask about the soda water, I was thinking maybe seltzer? I don't like salt, so I think I'd top them with nothing and/or cinnamon sugar or grated cheese, what do you think???
