Something different.

When I bought this bag of pretzels, I wasn't expecting anything out of the ordinary. I have eaten pretzels many times before and I have eaten other snacks claiming to be cheddar flavored. Usually these are just whatever the snack is (potato chips or crackers for example), with a tiny bit of flavoring to simulate cheese.

These pretzels were unlike any pretzel or cheese flavored snack I had ever tried before.

Expectations

Having eaten pretzels before, I thought I knew what to expect. I expected to find something with a brown color that was salty. Claiming a cheddar flavor, I was expecting a subtle, background hint of a cheese flavor, but nothing overwhelming and that was all.

My experience

The first time I poured a bowl of these pretzels, I noticed something unusual about them. The brown things I expected were not there. Instead, there were these orange, yellow things in the shape of pretzels. I also expected the salt to be visible on the pretzels, but that was not the case either. Instead, there was a powerdy coating on them.

When I tasted them, I was very surprised. They were crunchy, like a regular hard pretzel, and the flavors I noticed were very salty, highly cheddar cheese flavored and also a kick of something peppery that I was not expecting. To me, that was neither good nor bad, but something I was not prepared to experience.

I first opened the bag about 2 months ago, so I expected them to be a little stale by now, but they still taste as fresh as when I first opened them. The freshness date on the bag is still a month away, so the claim of freshness seems to be true in this case.

A few more thoughts

These are not good if you are trying to watch your sodium intake. A 1 ounce serving has 490 mg or 20% of a days supply. There are 22 grams of carbs, 1 gram of fiber and 1 gram of total fat. So, besides the sodium, they are not too bad of a choice for a snack.

I did notice some heartburn after eating these, which may have been because of the peppery flavor.

Because they are flavored, they really do not need dip with them, except for a good snack beverage to quench your thirst after all that salt and flavor.
