Taste test: This was a special kind of pretzel designed for kids. They came in special shapes and were supposed to have some honey flavor. The taste was a bit different from regular pretzels, and that probably had something to do with the honey that has been added. However, there was quite a bit of salt too, which kind of neutralized the effect of the honey, so after eating a few, they really didn't taste much different from ordinary pretzels.
The ones that were supposed to be shaped like a dogs didn't look much like dogs — they looked more like penguins. And I was thrown off a bit by the fact that some of these were shaped like people — it seemed remotely cannibalistic to be eating those (thought that one didn't really taste any different from the others).
