Pretzel Revolution, the Kutztown-based stuffed pretzel chain, is opening a new location in the former Donuts Divine on Route 12. The new restaurant, located across the street from Blind Hartman’s Tavern, is set to open today, according to a sign in the front window. In addition to the namesake pretzels, the restaurant will also be offering ice cream from the Penn State Berkey Creamery. Pretzel Revolution has a close relationship with Penn State, operating a stand in the Bryce Jordan Center in State College.
