Which snack was invented by an Italian monk?

Answer:

Pretzels

Most sources agree that the pretzel was invented by an Italian monk in the year 610 A.D. According to The History of Science and Technology, the monk baked strips of dough that he folded into a shape resembling a child crossing its arms in prayer. He would give these treats, which he called “pretiolas” or “little rewards,” to children who had memorized their prayers. The children got to eat them as snacks when they did good and a fad was born. Early pretzels were of the “soft” variety; hard pretzels are a relatively modern invention.
