Taste test: These fairy large, thin knotted pretzels were indeed dark in color, and the color was sufficiently close to chocolate-covered pretzels that I was tempted to tell people that they were chocolate.
Of course, there wasn't any chocolate at all. They had less salt than the average pretzels, but still some salt could easily been seen, as the white crystals were a sharp contrast to the nearly black pretzels. They tasted quite good, with a good crunch and nice taste, without actually tasting burnt at all. Our tasters all liked these a lot and in some cases ate them by the handful. Great!

Smell test: Definitely different than normal pretzels, and quite nice.
From the package: “Ever want to enjoy the dark kiln fired flavor without the crusty bite of a hard pretzel? That's what makes these Pennsylvania Dutch Extra Dark Specials a classic – rich taste in a crackery, soft-bite pretzel.”
