Pretzels

Introducing one of my favourite snacks! Parker's Pretzels! Ooh, how I love them! They're such an addictive snack I can't just stop at a handful! And they're supposed to be healthy, right?! "Baked not fried, 97% fat-free"....that's enough to convince me! *wink* I've tried the Tomato & Basil one too. It was nice but a little too herby. I started smelling of Basil after too many handfuls! So I think I'll stick to the original for now!


I think the kid in me loves the pretty pretzel shape! I can't eat it normally, ie pop the whole thing into my mouth and chew! Rather, I'll slowly bite off the sides till I'm only left with the centre! Strange huh?! There's something about the taste I like. I think akaline/lye water is used in making it as it has that same distinctive taste and smell the yellow Hokkien market mee here has. And the sprinkling of salt on it gives it that toe-curling saltiness that's somewhat addictive and the best snack for me anytime and anywhere!

See the salt crystals on it? It's yummilicious!

Hi Girish, thanks for dropping by!

Boo - yes those were from Oz but I think I've seen them here before. In Giant once, if I'm not mistaken. Ooh, another meme! :) Thanks! Btw, you're a night owl! :)

Pretzels bring out the Munchy Monster in me. Especially with mustard. Lots and lots of mustard.
