Mighty Pretzels Hot Chile & Cheddar
Taste test: These pretzels looked like fairly typical midsize knotted pretzels, except with lots of powdery-looking seasoning, but not much of anything like the ones pictured on the front of the bag. The proportions were entirely different; in the picture, the pretzel part was much thinner relative to the holes. The seasoning was missing entirely in the picture, showing just salt.
I crunched in to find a loud, crisp crunch, quite different than I've come to expect from a pretzel of this shape, with a vaguely cheddar-like lime flavor that got slightly hot in the aftertaste, but never particularly hot. We've had lots of hot cheddar snacks and many chile and lime combinations, but this kind of combined both flavor concepts into one. It wasn't awful, but it just didn't jump out as a flavor that I'm eager to eat again.

Smell test: Kind of weird. Not really your typical chile, cheddar, or combination of the two.
From the package: “Fresh milled” ... “No pesticides, preservatives or GMOs” ... “Too many of your favorite snacks — like pretzels — are made with factory-processed flour, preservatives, and artificial bad stuff. So we thought it was time for a fresh start. We started by partnering directly with organic farmers and building our very own mill. Stone-milling our own grains the old-fashioned way keeps the flavor and all the healthy fiber, protein, and nutrients in a way that industrial food production doesn't.”
