Snack Factory Pretzel Crisps

Pretzel Crisps

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
We Reinvented the Pretzel to Create a Wholesome, Healthy and Versatile Alternative to Snacking
Since 2004, Snack Factory Pretzel Crisps® have been a modern twist on an old favorite. They combine the best part of the pretzel – all the flavor and crunch – but lighter, crispier and more versatile than ever before.

Made to Dip, Top, Pair and Share!

The exceptionally thin, flat-baked pretzel crackers have multiple uses in snacking. Whether eaten straight out of the bag, paired with other foods like meat, cheese, fruit and veggies or “skinny” dipped in your favorite low fat dip or spread, Pretzel Crisps® are the perfect snack to share with family and friends.

Recommended by Dietitians

Growing up, pretzels were one of my favorite snacks. I'd honestly rather have a bag of pretzels than a bag of candy. I preferred the mini variety, since they were easier for my little hands to hold.

As I grew, I found I liked dipping my pretzels into something. My 'go-to' choices were either a can of cheese dip or when it was the end of the month and money was tight, ketchup and yellow mustard mixed (or just plain yellow mustard).

When Snack Factory Pretzel Crisps agreed to send me some bags for review, I was excited. Pretzels and chips together? What could be better?

Let's take a look at the flavor I received!


Original
Perfectly salted Original Pretzel Crisps® give you that satisfying, hearty crunch in a versatile shape that's dippable, spreadable, and deliciously snackable. With great gourmet taste from wholesome ingredients, it's the perfect snack anytime!

Just take a regular pretzel, flatten it, salt it and then bake it. I found these a little too salty for me. They seemed to be saltier than normal pretzels. I'd say more like a pretzel rod.
TASTE: 7.5/10

Original Minis
Inspired by consumer demand for wholesome, bite-sized snacking options that all members of the family can enjoy. Minis Original Pretzel Crisps® are sure to be a hit with consumers on-the-go.

Just like the Original crisps, in a miniature form. Everything else was the same, including the level of saltiness. However, these were easier for me to handle.
TASTE: 8.5/10

Gluten Free Original Minis
New Gluten Free Original Minis offer the wholesome goodness and simple ingredient list that Pretzel Crisps®  fans love while providing gluten sensitive snackers with a delicious and guilt free snack to nosh, top and share.

Just like the Original crisps and the Original Minis, just without the gluten some people can’t have. Also seemed to have less salt. I really didn’t taste a difference between these and the normal Originals, minus the less salt.
TASTE: 9.5/10

Honey Mustard & Onion
Complementing other bold flavors available in the popular Deli Style line-up, Honey Mustard & Onion Pretzel Crisps® marries tangy mustard and onion with the irresistible sweetness of honey.

I personally didn’t care for this one, which is odd, because I usually like Honey Mustard. But I really didn’t taste much onion on here; the Honey Mustard overpowered the onion. Mama Melissa took the rest of this bag.
TASTE: 6/10

Sriracha & Lime
The bold and spicy Sriracha & Lime Pretzel Crisps® combine the zesty flavor of sriracha with the cool, refreshing taste of lime. It’s a wholesome snack that’s packed with crunch and kick.

Talk about FIRE! I usually love Sriracha-flavored foods, using Sriracha Mayonnaise when I make my chicken salad. But these were just TOO hot for me, and it was light on the lime flavor. Not saying they were awful, but they just were too hot for me!
TASTE: 6.5/10

Garlic Parmesan
Deli-Style Garlic Parmesan Pretzel Crisps® are a zingy twist on an old favorite, with great gourmet taste from wholesome ingredients. The best part of the pretzel - that satisfying flavor and crunch - is crispy thin and baked with a light, savory garlic flavor for big flavor in a light, crispy snack.

Nice garlic taste, but would have like more of the Parmesan flavor to shine through. It almost seems like the company just used extremely fine powder for the Parmesan cheese. I would have rather they actually used grated cheese.
TASTE: 7/10

Salted Caramel Gluten Free Minis
New Gluten Free Salted Caramel Minis combine the hearty crunch of Pretzel Crisps® with the delectable flavor of creamy caramel. Each bite is a guilt and gluten free treat packed with an irresistible sweet and salty flavor.

Take the Gluten Free minis and dust them with a little bit of salt and caramel powder. Just the right amount of salt and sweetness. Neither flavor outweighed the other. Very delicious.
TASTE: 8/10

Cheddar Minis
Inspired by consumer demand for wholesome, bite-sized snacking options that all members of the family can enjoy. Minis Cheddar Pretzel Crisps® are sure to be a hit with consumers on-the-go.

Tasted like a Cheez-it cracker, but with more salt. I would have liked more cheese flavor and less salt though. I think the salt overpowered the cheese taste.
TASTE: 7/10

Sea Salt and Cracked Pepper
Giving consumers a distinctive base for creating layers of flavor in each bite, the new Sea Salt & Cracked Pepper Pretzel Crisps® perfectly balances the exuberant zing of fresh cracked pepper with the classic tang of sea salt.

Didn’t taste too different from the Original variety for me… Best way to describe these is if you took the salt off the Originals and replaced it with pepper. I liked these, but I think eating a lot of these at once might cause your stomach to burn from the pepper (if pepper bothers your stomach).
TASTE: 9/10

Buffalo Wing
Our Buffalo Wing Pretzel Crisps® flavor is a crowd pleaser! Everyone loves the spicy flavor sprinkled right on top of each crisp.

Take just the sauce of a hot chicken wing and dip your pretzels into it. This wasn’t as hot as the Sriracha and Lime flavor crisps, but they are on the spicy side. I think if you dipped these in either Ranch or Blue Cheese dip, it would taste JUST like a hot chicken wing.
TASTE: 8/10

Sesame
Our Sesame Pretzel Crisps® flavor is lightly toasted to bring out the sesame seed's essential oils, adding a healthy kick to Pretzel Crisps®' delicious crunch. Sesame seeds are rich in iron, magnesium, manganese, copper, calcium, vitamin B1, E and a good source of lignans (phytoestrogens with antioxidant and anti-cancer properties). Health qualities aside, one bite, and you’ll be saying "Open Sesame," again and again!

One of my favorite of what we received. I love Sesame-flavored foods, and this did not disappoint. Very heavy on the sesame flavor and the actual sesame seeds were a delightful bonus.
TASTE: 9/10

Everything
Our Everything Pretzel Crisps® flavor, sprinkled generously with poppy seeds, sesame seeds, onions and garlic with just a pinch of salt, more than lives up to its name. Packed with flavor, baked, not fried.

Everything Pretzel Crisps® deliver great taste without the guilt.

This is supposed to be like an Everything Bagel, but all I could taste was garlic and sesame seeds. I liked them, but I would have liked more different flavors on this. These actually weren’t very salty either, which was a plus.
TASTE: 8.5/10

The main problem I foresee disabled people having with these (minus any chewing issues) are opening and resealing the zipper bags. If the zippers aren't lined up correctly, the bag will not close and the crisps will go stale.

Snack Factory Pretzel Crisps® are available from most supermarkets and major retailers nationwide. Please visit the Where To Buy page for locations near you or shop their Amazon page.

FINAL THOUGHTS
A very delicious snack food that pretzel lovers will enjoy immensely!
