I have a lot of photos of snack food on my camera.
One of the things I love about Pretz is that every few months they throw a few new flavors at us. I’m a sucker, and I buy them every time. Salty Butter Pretz? I wonder if that tastes different from Savory Butter Pretz? I must buy them NOW. Of course they taste the same, they always taste the same – like a crispy little cracker stick covered in fake umami flavoring. And I love it. Behold, some new flavors:
Butter and soy sauce? Tastes like salt. Onion gratin soup? Tastes like salt.
Chirimenjako, or salty little fish. Tasted like salty fish.
Okonomiyaki? Tastes surprising like okonomiyaki, like the green seaweed stuff you sprinkle on top of your savory sauce-covered pancake. Adzuki toast? Disgusting! So gross! I spit them out and made a big display of how utterly horrible they were. Then promptly insisted Dan try them. He wouldn’t. I had high hopes for this one, I really did. I thought a salty sweet snack would be right up my alley, but this is more like a salty nasty snack. *Shudder*
There were two others which I opened and devoured before I could take a photo. I kept thinking I’d see them in the supermarket again, but as is the nature of Pretz, they are gone forever. You’ll have to believe me that they existed – wasabi and yuzu. Both were salty. And good.
I need a glass of water.
Shame to hear that the azuki toast one sucks. I usually love azuki-flavoured anything, but, well, I think I’m more likely to go make myself some toast and spread azuki paste on it that eat the Pretz! XD
Adzuki toast actually sounds good now!
