One day, when Walter’s sweet rolls don’t live up to their usual tastiness, the Duke gives Walter a challenge to “invent a roll through which the rising sun can shine three times.” After a night of frantically trying to make a roll that meets the Duke’s challenge, Walter accidentally invents…the pretzel!
