Pretzels: that go-to snack that satisfies salt cravings but isn't completely bad for you. And they come in so many shapes and sizes! Braided twists, squares, skinny sticks, and, well, pretzel-shaped. Plus, you can dip them in stuff, making them vehicles for other delicious flavors; peanut butter is my go-to.
But what happens when the tried-and-true pretzel gets the chip treatment, coated in different flavors$1 Snyder's of Hanover did just that, introducing its Flavored Pretzel Pieces in 1992 with Honey Mustard & Onion; Buttermilk Ranch and Cheddar Cheese followed the year after. Today, there are seven varieties from the 104-year-old company that claims to be the global leader in pretzel sales. As a big fan of both the Honey Wheat Braided Twists and the big Sourdough Hard Pretzels, I was excited to find out if they were snackable.
