Some foods (soft pretzels) cause a pimple like thing to pop out in the back of my mouth @ the joint where top & bottom jaws meet . What and why?

In brief: Hmmm

Your symptom requires an examination to be sure.
Could be salt irritating a mucous gland. Could be a gingival cyst becoming noticeable on chewing. Take a pretzel to your doctors office and have at it so you can be properly examined.
