The Office’s titular character Michael Scott definitely found hundreds of ways to be totally unproductive during his tenure as Dunder Mifflin’s Scranton branch manager. On one particular occasion, he and co-worker Stanley Hudson waited nearly an entire work day for a complimentary pretzel, as it was “Pretzel Day” for employees in their office building. Scott ended up ordering an 18 topping pretzel that sent him into a sugar coma for the remainder of the day. It sounded delicious, but we never got to see what it really looked like—until now.
Youtube channel Binging With Babish, purveyors of fictional food recipes, recreated Michael Scott’s pretzel in a recent episode. Host Andrew Rea made sure that every topping, from the peanut butter drizzle to the cotton candy and OREOs, made its way on top. After just piling them all on in a fashion akin to how the pretzel man probably did it on the show, Rea also created his own Instagram-worthy version of the treat.
Not gonna lie, that pretzel actually looks pretty scrumptious. It would definitely make me enjoy Pretzel Day as much as Stanley did before the diabetic sugar coma kicks in.
