Glico Bacon and Cheese Pretz

Bacon and Cheese Pretz

Although I really loved the Melonpan Pretz from the Bakery Flat Style Pretz line, I gotta say, the Bacon and Cheese flavor didn't do it for me.

They smell like dog treats. Like weaker Beggin' Strips. The smell was definitely bacony, but it was preservative-laden as well. I didn't let that stop me of course, because I knew they had to taste better than they smelled.

They did taste better than they smelled, but it really wasn't enough to save them for me. That Pretz preserative taste was there and the aftertaste was one of those that you knew was going to hang around for a while. I'm not a huge fan of bacon-flavoring, so that was probably why I didn't like these.

I suppose it was supposed to be a savory taste, but the smell was so overpowering that the taste really didn't stand out at all. These weren't for me at all. I only had one stick and would not be likely to try this kind again.

When trying to think of bacon flavored things that I like, only the bacon and cheese flavored potato skins potato chips come to mind. For the most part, "bacon flavor" doesn't really appeal to me. Overwhelming artificial bacon smell reminds me of dog treats as well. The other bacon item you showed us on Tuesday will be interesting to be sure.
