Oddly flavoured Christmas snacks seem to be all the rage this year. Mint chocolate Pringles, bramley apple crisps, and now Morrissons have joined in too, with these salted caramel pretzels. Yeah, sweet pretzels. That may fly with the soft variety, but it's a little odd with the small crunchy ones. Still, I enjoyed Penn State's maple bacon pretzels, so I was willing to give these a try.
Turns out they're... okay. The first thing that hits after popping one in my mouth is an overwhelming sweetness. It's certainly got a caramel flavour. but it's pretty intense and overrides everything else. Also, despite its intensity, the sweet taste does go away quite quickly, and the pretzels break down quite quickly, leaving a bland mush to chew and swallow. There's certainly a sweet spot in the middle where the sweetness has dulled down and the salty flavour blends in quite nicely, but it doesn't last too long. They're certainly edible, and an interesting idea, but these pretzels are just quite average.
My rating: 3/5
