WHAT?!?!?!?! N0! No, no, no!!! Do raspberry creme filled pretzel sandwiches sound like a good snack to anyone…?
That’s what we thought.
Let us try and paint you a clear flavor picture of what we have here. On the outside we have two criss-cross-cut pretzels acting as the sandwich bread. The thin pretzel rounds do a perfectly fine job of doing exactly what they are designed to do. Snyder’s of Hanover has been making various pretzel sandwiches for years and years now but never before have they chosen to fill them with a fruit flavored creme! And, unfortunately that is where this new snack took a turn for the worse!
By worse, we certainly do not mean any lack of accuracy for the raspberry creme filling. Rather, most likely the opposite!! The raspberry creme filling tastes exactly like that, like super sweet raspberry creme filling. In fact, the filling reminds us an awful lot of our favorite lollipops from when we were younger – Chupa Chups Raspberry Vanilla.
On the back of the purple tinted bag Snyder’s mentions that these pretzel sandwiches are both “sweet and salty….” but despite being able to visually see a few specs of salt on the pretzels, any and all taste of said salt is nonexistent due to the level of sweetness provided by the raspberry creme. Plain and simple these pretzel sandwiches are a sweet dessert treat that should not be included anywhere among salty snack section for any rhyme or reason. These belong on the shelf next to cookies! Overall, we just feel like these pretzel sandwiches are an odd combination that despite their accuracy we do not enjoy, and honestly, one that we cannot see many other people actually enjoying either.
