Osem's newest pretzel is a welcomed addition to my snack cupboard. Until now I've been a fan, exclusively, of the big salty pretzels. I like when you get a nice crunch for your bite so I was excited to try the new flat pretzels from Osem. I was pleasantly surprised that they surpassed my current favorite: the jumbo salt pretzels.
Regarding the packaging, I think the glasses smiley face is fun and exciting but, not sure it really has much to do with the flat pretzel inside the bag.
I also hate when snack bags cannot be reclosed properly to keep the snack inside fresh, but, that's a whole other story for a different blog post. I have to say in my trusted "lock and lock container" these pretzel stayed perfectly fresh and crunchy.
They are also available with sesame seeds instead of the salt but I did not try the sesame seed ones.
Bottom line: A nice new twist to a classic loved snack

*update* I repurchased the pretzels today and noticed that they have a sticker that is intended to be used to reclose the bag. I didn't see that last time, either I missed it or it’s a new addition regardless, I still do not think it is an adequate way to keep the snack fresh but, I have to give them credit for trying. I've seen pretzels in the USA that have a "Ziploc" style closing, that is more what I am looking for, granted that most likely would bring up the price of the snack and I would probably still end up transferring my pretzels to a container, for organization purposes, but I still would rather have the option of a "Ziploc" style closing.
