Taste test: Much like the Cheddar Minis from Pretzel Crisp, these flattened pretzels were quite a bit smaller than the original size, with a modified knot shape and just two holes instead of three. They tasted a lot like the original, with more of the delicious surface flavor and less of the less-delicious interior than your typical pretzel. In fact, these may have had an even better surface-to-interior ratio than the big ones, as there was lots and lots of great pretzel taste. Another advantage of the small size was that the pieces were largely intact — a way smaller proportion of the pieces were broken than we typically see with their larger counterparts. If you're planning to dip, probably best to stay with the big ones, but otherwise these seemed like a much better choice.
Aroma: Strong pretzel smell. Nice.
