Taste test: These pretzels fell into the middle ground between very thin pretzel sticks like Bachman Pretzel Stix and cigar-size ones like Utz Pretzel Rods. They had nice shiny brown exterior with lots of salt.
We crunched in to find a good crispness and fairly strong crunch, with lots of pretzel flavor and a good helping of salt. Great with beer!
Aroma: Strong pretzel smell.
