Taste test: This bag of broken-up thick pretzels combined two different flavors, with the different kinds easily distinguishable by the color of the seasonings that adhered to the exposed portions of the pretzel interiors. The cheddar pieces were light orange, whole the pepper pieces were off-white with some bits of crushed black pepper. There were also some bits of black pepper on the cheddar pieces, though generally fewer than on the actual pepper pieces. All of the pieces were quite crunchy while not being too hard, with a nice crispness and a very nice taste. When trying both kinds at once, the pepper dominated over the cheddar, but the combination was a very nice, very zesty flavor. There was a strong black pepper aftertaste too. People who tried the two kinds separately generally liked the pepper pieces better, yet the whole bag gained quite a few fans from our snackers.
Aroma: Good peppery smell, but also sweet.
