Now don’t get all twisted, but the former Mrs. Field’s spot inside Cielo Vista Mall is going through a transformation. And when it debuts its new look, you are going to go knots.

The bad puns are my (clever?) way of saying Wetzel’s Pretzels, the nation’s number-one pretzel chain, will be making its El Paso premiere at the mall this summer.

What's a Wetzel's?

The Los Angeles-based snack chain is loved by many for its big, soft, and chewy pretzels – “handheld happiness” they call it – as well as its bite-sized counterparts and variety of dipping sauces.

I'm a fan of pretzels, but I've never had the pleasure of one of these. Just look at all the yummy offerings.

There’s the Original Pretzel, pretzels coated with cinnamon & sugar (think Churro), pretzels topped with pepperoni slices, and pretzels with slices of jalapeno.

Want some protein in your pretzel? Get a Wetzel dog, which is pretzel dough wrapped around a Weiner (think Pigs in a Blanket).

They even come in bite-sized cups so you can pretend you're watching your weight and slowing your roll on the carbs.

Excuse me while I lick the screen.

I’m not much of a mall rat but I’d be willing to people-watch for some of that.

When Will Wetzel's Wopen?

Online documents show the first Wetzel’s Pretzels in West Texas and New Mexico will be located on the first floor in front of Lids and is expected to be making dough in August or September.

I started with a bad pun, so I thought it was only appropriate to end with one.
