Product Review: Snyder's of Hanover Bacon Cheddar Pretzel Pieces

Is it OK to say "Happy Memorial Day" on Memorial Day?  Because, if you think about it, the point of today is to remember people who have died, so I'm not sure if I should say "happy."  But then, what should be the appropriate greeting for Memorial Day?  "Are you remembering?" or "Be sure to think on today with reverence?"  Kinda catchy.  I have a year to prepare for the next one, so I'll come up with something.

They had a few sample bags of these Snyder's of Hanover Pretzel Pieces today for $.99, so we grabbed a couple for research purposes.  The flavor wasn't bad, but... to paraphrase that old Wendy's commercial, "Where's the bacon?"

Neither my wife nor I could taste any bacon flavor.  We taste cheese, a little onion and garlic, and of course the pretzel, but no bacon.  Unfortunately for the folks at S.O.H., the only reason I purchased this product was for the bacon.

Unless we happened to catch a batch that wasn't seasoned correctly, we probably won't buy these again.

Rating: 2.5 out of 5 ghosts.


  1. I was advised offline by a concerned reader that we might have actually gotten a bad batch. I'll re-visit the product at a future point, Exciting times.

  2. I'm going to stick with the honey mustard ones that I know I love!
