Taste test: This bag contained, small, not-quite-spherical pretzel balls, with a fairly typical pretzel color on most of the surface, some darker spots and lots of seasoning visible.
They had a good solid crunch without being too hard and the taste was not bad, but it was a bit underwhelming for something labeled as "Szechuan" with "medium heat." There were some spices that didn't seem particularly Szechuan, and there wasn't any heat to speak of. Generally our tasters found them to be OK, but there wasn't much enthusiasm for these.
