Taste test: When I saw the words "Sesame Pretzels" on this bag, I assumed it was another pretzel with sesame seeds on the exterior, much like ones from Beigel & Beigel, Pressels and Gratify. That's why I was so surprised when I opened it to find that the white things on the exteriors of the short sticks were just salt — I didn't see any sesame seeds.
Thankfully, when I crunched in to my first piece, the promised toasted sesame flavor was there, and it was really quite good. I still didn't see any whole sesame seeds, so apparently they were ground up and incorporated into the dough. The result was quite different from other pretzels we've tried and excellent.

Smell test: Nice mild toasted sesame sell. Definitely not just the usual pretzel smell.
