Pretzels are tasty. They’re crunchy, they’re savory, and they offer an alternative to the conventional potato chip. But, they’re salty and that’s definitely something to keep an eye out for.

I took a moment to dig through the ThingsThatWeDo.com archives and came across these images of Pepperidge Farm Pretzel Goldfish Crackers and realized that I’d never posted about them. Looks like I have a lot of time to make up!

Of course, the Pepperidge Farm Pretzel Goldfish Crackers are shaped like little goldfish and not like your average pretzel. The change in shape automatically changes the way they crunch but everything else screams pretzel.

Translation: they’re also salty like pretzels. Per 26 crackers (or 20 grams), you get 14% of your daily intake of sodium. Now, depending on what brand of pretzels you normally eat, these Pepperidge Farm Pretzel Goldfish Crackers will either taste bland or excessively salty. For our family, we found these Pepperidge Farm Pretzel Goldfish Crackers to be on the saltier side. One of the other brands of pretzels I tested a while back had only 10% of your daily intake of sodium in 28 grams.

To avoid consuming too much sodium in one sitting, I’d probably pair these Pepperidge Farm Pretzel Goldfish Crackers with a few other dry snacks. I might some dry cereal or granola, seeds, or popcorn to the mix or add other choice crackers with less sodium to balance off the flavours.
