Taste test: These pretzels broke the pretzel formula by taking regular smallish knotted pretzels and adding some sort of seasoning to them, rather than just salt.
One look inside the bag was enough to see that there was clearly something more on the surfaces than just salt. Unfortunately, that seasoning pretty well covered up the taste of the pretzels while adding a taste that few of our tasters liked. What did it taste like? Hard to say. I thought I could maybe taste lime (thought it wasn't in the ingredients) along with lots of other things, and somehow this seasoning just didn't go well with beer — which sort of defeats the purpose of pretzels!
