Taste test: These short, hollow, enclosed pretzel tubes had an even darker color than the ones shown on the package. Each one was about an inch and half long, with shapes that varied somewhat and a small number of grains of salt on the exteriors, mostly on one side. We crunched in to find a fairly light feel but still a satisfying crunch, with a very minimal amount of salt to taste for most of the pieces. The idea of these was similar to Unique Pretzel Shells but the implementation was a bit different, as these were a bit sturdier, so they had a slightly harder crunch, and also there fewer broken pieces. They also had less salt. Speaking of which, they really could have used more salt, but otherwise they were quite good.
Aroma: Regular pretzels smell.
