Pretzel Crisps review, white chocolate & peppermint flavored

White Chocolate Pretzel Crisps with Peppermint

Taste

These yummy pretzels were another good find at Target. I honestly didn’t think too much of them when I saw them. Pretzels and peppermint don’t sound good.

However, it was nearly impossible to stop eating these Pretzel Crisps once I started. They are so good. The buttery crisp, salty pretzel blends well with the sweet, milky creamy vanilla coating. The cool, sweet peppermint candy compliments the creaminess perfectly.

Appearance

Interestingly enough, no FD&C colors were used in this snack. The manufacturer, Snack Factory, used beet juice for coloring in the peppermint candy. Traditionally, FD&C colors are used in candy, they are brighter, stronger, easier to use, and less expensive.

Consumers are looking for natural options and choosing products without FD&C colors, and food manufacturers are  responding. With natural colors, consumers may notice that food products, such as the pretzel crips are duller. Besides the dull red peppermint candy color, the general appearance of these crisps is lacking. They remind me of pictures deformed faces. Perhaps they are best for Halloween and not Christmas?

Texture

I love the different textures in this snack. The pretzels are crisp, the white chocolate coating is smooth and the peppermint candy is crunchy. Peppermint pretzel crisps taste amazingly good and are festive.  It was a pleasant surprise tasting such a wonderful flavor and texture combination.

They fit right in with the cookies, cakes & candies served at the holidays. Four pretzel crisps have 130 calories, 5 grams of fat, 110 mg of sodium and very little nutrition.

None-the-less, I’ll be heading back to Target to stock up on these limited edition pretzel crisps. They are delicious.
