Pretzel Pete Gourmet Pretzel Nuggets Sour Cream & Habanero

Buy Pretzels on Amazon


Taste test: These pretzel nuggets were fairly large and had rugged exteriors, with the flavor powder adhering mostly to the various cracks and crevices. The pretzel exteriors had a nice range of colors.

I crunched in to find that the nuggets had a good soft feel but still plenty of crispness, with quite an impressive kick of habanero heat. I started out with just a small, broken piece (most were fully intact) and just eating that pretty well set my mouth on fire. Some lemonade helped to temper the heat, but when I dove back into the bag for a full-size nugget, the heat returned with a vengeance. There was just a bit of sour cream the held back the heat at first, but the the habanero won out in the end, with heat that stayed around for a long time in the aftertaste. Very good, and hot enough to satisfy most hot chip fans.

Smell test: Not much, just a subtle sour cream smell. No heat.

From the package: “All-Natural Sourdough Pretzel Nuggets packing a hint of sour cream and a wallop of habanero.” ... “Wide split in nugget allows seasoning to soak deep down into the nugget.” ... “Mouth-watering Sour Cream and eye-watering habanero blended perfectly together.” ... “Flakes of parsley provide a subtle accent.”
