Hello hello! Today I bring you something new from the elves at Keebler. I super love the Anderson peanut butter filled pretzels, so I figured that this would be similar but covered in chocolate – winning! I found it kind of interesting that they decided to put this snack out considering cookies are more of Keebler’s forte.
I was rather surprised to see how few were inside of the package. These would be a nice lunch treat but as for snacking? You’ll eat the whole box before you’re satisfied. I have a bowl that I keep packages of snacks this size like the 100 calorie almonds and the like in so it worked out well. Also I feel less guilty when I eat one of these little packages.
The picture and the product are a but different than each other. The real thing (pictured below – duh) looks more to me like chocolate covered panda cookies than pretzels. The pretzels are also not as full of peanut butter as the picture on the box would lead you to believe.
Upon first bite I was pleasantly surprised. Sometimes chocolate covered pretzels lack the salt on the pretzel which makes it taste more like a wafer to me. Keebler kept the salt and I think it really enhances the flavor. The peanut butter on the inside was a little dry, but as a complete bite, they were good. I decided to bite one of the pretzels in half and eat the peanut butter by itself. Bad move. I don’t really know how to describe the taste but without the pretzel outside, the peanut butter is nothing but a chalky little log. Yuck.
Because of the size of the package, there are usually only 3-5 pretzels inside, which can be slightly disappointing when you start to get into them.
Texture : 4/5 – The chocolate fudge on the outside is smooth, the pretzel has a nice crunch to it, and the peanut butter is a little weird. For best results eat in one bite.
Smell : 3/5 – The only smell that I could pick out was the chocolate.
Appearance : 2/5 – These aren’t the most visually appealing snack food out there. The shape is rather odd (though if they were not covered in chocolate I think the shape would be okay).
Taste : 3.5/5 – These were good but I wouldn’t call them great. The gritty peanut butter kind of ruined it for me, but I would probably buy these again if I saw them on sale. The chocolate outside is very tasty, which I attribute to the skill that Keebler has in making cookies.
