Taste: These pretzels were supposed to be shaped like spoons, or so it said in the name and on the bag's marketing copy. But if you had just shown me the actual pretzels inside the bag there's no way I would have guessed it — they looked like they were supposed to be peanuts. In fact, they looked basically like flattened pretzels (such as Pretzel Crisps) with the shape of a peanut shell. They looked symmetrical, so despite references on the bag to a "built-in handle" we couldn't tell the spoon end from the handle end. The bigger problem was that when we crunched in, they were nowhere near as good as Pretzel Crisps. They were not crisp at all (unlike Pretzel Crisps) and they had a more-bready-than-pretzely taste (unlike Pretzel Crisps). It's a good thing they were intended for dipping, because the taste and texture of the pretzels themselves really brought nothing to the table. If you do get these, bring your very best dip, because you'll need to do whatever you can to make up for the very mediocre pretzels.
