Taste test: These pretzels looked mostly the same as honey wheat pretzel twists, with a similar color and salt crystals on the outside, but upon close examination I noticed tiny spots in the dough that might have been cinnamon.
I crunched in to find that these tasted good but had far less cinnamon than I was expecting — and nothing resembling raisins. I'm a big fan of cinnamon raisin bagels, so I was expecting something like that. The bag had a picture of a loaf of cinnamon raisin bread. The taste was kind of like a raisin bread or a bagel, but the sweetness was way more subdued. The salt on the outside kind of pushed the taste in a different direction, so the raisin bread taste really came in the aftertaste once the salt had worn off. Our tasters liked these.

Smell test: Smells like a cinnamon roll. Very sweet, but not too sweet.
