Japanese Snack Week: Pretz Roast



What in the shit is that girl doing on the front of this box of pretzels? Who is she and why did she stop shopping for clothes and hairdos in 1980? I don't know, but I do know that Glico has brought it to your grill with these snacks. I assumed these would be just like Pocky, and although they are packaged just like Pocky and are shaped just like Pocky... okay they're pretty much just like Pocky, but without the chocolate coating. But wait, there's more... the pretzel has a very subtle sweetness, which is a quality only Japan has been able to perfect in its snacks. America, let's go. Step your game up. It's sort of like shortbread sweet, but has that nice pretzel snap to it. Very good.

Taste (8) Sweet, savory, salty... it's all here. Coat these in chocolate and you'll be on your way to 10dom.

Packaging (8) Creepy girl illustration, cool type design, excellent screenprinted inner bag design. Very well thought out.

Overall snackability rating おいしい!!!

I went to the Japanese market by my house about a week ago and bought a huge box of Pretz/ propmtly devoured them all in one afternoon. I really like the tomato-flavored kind, but I had mistakenly bought the plain flavored ones...
