PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Only in Philadelphia.
As Eagles fans await the signing of the polarizing figure Tim Tebow, they do not have to wait anymore for a Tebow soft pretzel.
Thanks to Mayfair’s (7366 Frankford Avenue) Philly Soft Pretzel Factory, you can purchase a soft pretzel “Tebowing” for just one dollar.
“To be honest with you, I don’t know where it came from,” Adam Terranova, Philly Soft Pretzel’s marketing manager, told CBSPhilly.com on Monday. “This one kind of came out of, ‘Hey, Tebow is coming this morning!'”

Terranova explained, if popular, the Tebow pretzel could be a regular item.
“Right now, who knows, it could be a regular pretzel on Sunday’s,” Terranova said. “We’re gonna ride as far is it goes.”
The pretzel really took off, says Terranova, when the original shipment was delivered to the Eagles.
“We’re making them in mass now,” Terranova said. “The original test ones were delivered to the Eagles this morning.”
