Br. Francis Wagner, O.S.B.
I used to work at Dietsch’s (1982-1984) when I was in high school (Liberty-Benton), and still have many fond memories. Now, I am a Benedictine monk at Saint Meinrad Archabbey in Saint Meinrad, Indiana. The monks here are quite fond of Dietsch’s dark chocolate-covered pretzels! After I arrived in 2006, many here have come to associate Findlay with Dietsch’s because of me. Anytime a family member or friend visits and asks if they can bring anything, I usually ask for nothing but dark chocolate-covered pretzels. I don’t get back to Findlay often, but when I do, I usually buy several boxes to take back with me (while eating a strawberry ice cream cone, another weakness of mine). I break out the pretzels for special occasions with my brother monks, but I must confess holding back more than a few for myself! In any event, I just thought I’d pass on that whenever I serve them up (they never last long), many monks ask about Dietsch’s, and they’re always interested in hearing about what a treasure Findlay has! God bless
