Last month we tried Snyder’s of Hanover’s other New 50% Less Fat Pretzel Pieces flavor – Zesty Ranch. And to say that we were disappointed would be a grave understatement.
In short, Snyder’s of Hanover had taken practically everything we loved about their classically fantastic Buttermilk Ranch Pretzel Pieces (one our all-time favorite ranch flavored snacks), and replaced them with mouth drying, unimpressively seasoned, pretzel pieces!
In other words, we were more than a little hesitant to give this other new less fat flavor a try, despite our love for anything-everything!!
Thankfully, these are much better than their ranch flavored compadres.
All of the usual everything flavor suspects are present. We’ve got poppy seeds, sesame seeds, onion, garlic and salt. And of course, the flavor combo works on bread-y pretzel pieces.
Do these pretzels blow us away? No. They fall short of the majority of Snyder’s delicacies. The pieces are still very dry and lacking that Snyder’s of Hanover typical rich and fatty mouth texture appeal.
Once again we’ll be sticking with Snyder’s original pieces!
Make sure to let us know your thoughts.
