Long title I know but it had to be said! My viewpoint, I know.
I used to love potato chips and, I’m not going to lie, I still munch on a few here and there. My love for potato chips however, just isn’t what it used to be. This is probably a good thing considering chips aren’t exactly a standup food group. In moderation, yes, fit chips into your lifestyle but I wouldn’t recommend eating a bag a day.
A fun substitution: Snyder’s of Hanover Pretzel Pieces. They’re savory, flavourful, and the best part is, you only need a few to feel satisfied. Yes, they are salty (they are flavoured pretzel pieces, after all) but I’d rather eat a small handful of Snyder’s Pretzel Pieces than eat an entire bag of chips.
What do I love most? The itty bitty shapes – they are so cool and just offer your taste buds a completely novel gustatory experience. They’re robustly crunchy, not great for those that worry about the strength of their tooth enamel, but oh so satisfying if you want a good crunch.
I opted to try the Snyder’s of Hanover Pretzel Pieces in a honey mustard and onion flavour and shared them with my pals at work. Ingredients, you ask? Well, these honey mustard and onion Snyder’s of Hanover Pretzel Pieces were made with: enriched flour (wheat flour, niacin, reduced iron, thiamine mononitrate, riboflavin, folic acid), palm oil, sugar, onion powder, maltodextrin, dextrose, whey (milk), salt, vinegar powder, honey powder, hydrolyzed soy protein, prepared mustard, wheat starch, yeast, spice, extractive of turmeric, citric acid, horseradish, natural flavours, sodium hydroxide.
Yes, that’s a long list of ingredients. If I had one recommendation to make, I’d suggest finding ways to trim down on the number of ingredients used to make the product. I know it’s an old family recipe but somehow, that list just seems a bit too long. Simplify the recipe and reduce the amount of sodium used. I don’t get why pretzels have to be so salty. They’d be perfectly fine with a fraction of the sodium used.
The Snyder’s of Hanover Pretzel Pieces certainly don’t disappoint despite that long ingredient list. The oddly smashed pretzel pieces were fully coated and decked out with a generous helping of honey mustard and onion seasoning. It tasted as it should: like super thick crunchy pretzel pieces with honey mustard with a hint of onion.
Yes, drink lots of water.
Again, drink lots of water.
I know, I’m repeating myself but that’s just how I feel.
Yes, this tastes better than a regular handful of salty pretzels.
Yes, I’d rather eat a small helping of these Snyder’s of Hanover Pretzel Pieces than eat a big helping of regular pretzels or chips or nachos or salty peanuts even with its long list of ingredients. Share with a friend or 10 but if anyone at Snyder’s is listening, I sure do hope you come up with a simplified version with less sodium. Then you’d have a home run.
