Snyder's Honey Mustard & Onion Pretzel Pieces (Waitrose) [By @SpectreUK]
Snyder’s of Hanover, in North Caroline in the USA, was established in 1909 and specialise in baking Pretzels. These Pretzel Pieces are Honey Mustard and Onion flavour. The front of the packet states “Bursting with flavour!” with the word “flavour” spelt in English rather than the missing “u” in American, which I very much appreciated on noticing the packet in our local supermarket. There was a sweet honey smell on opening the packet followed by a slight sting in my nostrils from the mustard; this aroma was enveloped by a keen whiff of onions. The packet was full of broken pieces of baked Pretzel, which was what I was expecting, as I’d expect the packet would have been much larger otherwise! The pieces were a little like the broken biscuits you get from some manufacturers. You know the reject biscuits that weren’t perfect enough to add to premium packets, but taste just as good, cost slightly less and why waste food? Here it looked like someone had gone mad with a hammer in a Snyder’s shop. On first taste the sweet honey flavour hit my tastebuds like a beehive hit by a freight train, followed by a mild zing from the mustard coupled with the all-enveloping onion flavour. I found these Honey Mustard and Onion flavoured Pretzel Pieces an innovative break (excuse the pun) from the broken biscuits idea. They were a very tasty treat indeed and certainly moreish enough, as I polished off the whole packet in no time.
