Oprah's Latest Obsession Belongs in the Food Court Hall of Fame

Oprah Winfrey wears many hats, but perhaps her most defined role is that of influencer. I mean, the woman releases an annual list of her “favorite things” and they magically appear in our Amazon carts within the hour.

She's introduced many a vital product into our lives, but our lifelong role model just made our day with perhaps one of her most relatable favorite things yet. According to The Cut, Oprah’s pal Ava DuVernay recently introduced her to a beloved mall staple: THE PRETZEL DOG.

Apparently, there was an Auntie Anne’s on or near the Wrinkle in Time set and DuVernay advised her to try the pretzel-wrapped food court delicacy, which her talk show host majesty now “loves.” Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling probably ate them on set too, right? We will choose to believe that yes, yes they did.

That’s right, ladies and gents, indulge in your next pretzel dog guilt-free. As a general rule-of-thumb, if Oprah does it, you probably should too—especially if it involves a mash-up as delightful as pretzels and hot dogs.

We’re coming for you, Auntie Anne’s.
