Taste: These flattened pretzels had a different shape than the Pretzel Crisps that they (along with a number of other imitators) were derived from, as Rold Gold did away with the standard knot and made it more like some sort of flattened double knot. The pieces had a good pretzel color, actually a bit darker and more pretzel-like than the ones pictured on the bag.
But when we crunched in, some of the whole pretzel illusion went away, as the texture was not nearly as pretzel-like as Pretzel Crisps. These did have some hint of pretzel, but the feel was more like a hybrid of a pretzel and a cracker — crumblier and less crunchy than a pretzel. The taste was still reasonably pretzel-like, and most of our snackers enjoyed these a lot while they had some beers.

Aroma: A bit buttery, so not just the usual pretzel smell.
