Taste test: This bold-sounding flavor from Pretzel Crisps looked fairly ordinary when I opened the bag, as the flattened knotted pretzels looked mostly like the plain salted flavor, save for the slightest bit of orange seasoning in a few spots.
I crunched in to find a slight bit of hot peppers, black pepper and lime on the first bite, but it faded almost immediately to be replaced by a strong pretzel flavor. Still, the mix of tastes was quite good, as Pretzel Crisps formula of essentially avoiding the bland pretzel interior made that pretzel-exterior-only taste quite nice. The very mild sriracha taste reemerged in the aftertaste, again quite good.
However, despite the claim on the bag, this was hardly a bold flavor, and hot sauce lovers are likely to be underwhelmed. If you're not expecting much heat, or if a very mild sriracha taste works for you, these could be quite tasty. Just not hot!

Smell test: Some lime and a hint of peppers but not really hot or like sriracha.
From the package: “Pretzel Crisps™ are a modern twist on an old favorite. They're the best part of the pretzel — all the flavor and crunch you love — but lighter, crispier and more versatile than ever before.” ... “Bold & Spicy” ... “Resealable for Freshness”
