Walgreens Pleasant Pretzels, yep.. That's the name of this article, can you guess what the article is going to be about?
Nice! Mini Twist Pretzels:
Nice! is Walgreen's own personal in-store brand, changed previously from whatever the hell it was before (and it was something else before, Deerfield Farms I think) to the new name which aggressively declares that the product is Nice! and don't you fucking forget it. Walgreen's sells rope, duct tape, knives and saws, punk.
It's interesting because these are just your run of the mill and average Pretzels but they're actually quite good, uncommonly so. I mean I've had other Pretzels in the past and they were just kind of 'meh' in comparison to these.. These being cheap as hell too, they won't run your tab into the ground.
I love that four of these feel substantial, they're small but they're deceptive and it's nice because they're also pretty low Calorie; 17 of these fuckers is only 110 Calories which is pretty good considering I can't eat 17 of them in one sitting. Taste-wise? They're what you expect but a little better than other Pretzels out there, they're very fresh for one and very smooth, providing a nice crunch initially that gives way and breaks down into a smooth and creamy enjoyable mastication that slides pleasurably down your throat with it's salty goo-Oh my god what am I saying?!
8.5/10 Big Cat Paws - Definitely worth a try, these are damn good.
DE-LISH Raspberry & Blueberry Yogurt Pretzels:
Who gives a shit about the history or specifics of the damn brand or company though? You're here and reading because you're interested in the actual Pretzels so let's get to them! I really don't mind, trust me.. You'll know why shortly.
First we'll start with the Raspberry;
They were not. The flavour is definitely strong and it's quite prevalent in these, very noticeable and very rich but it's not bad, it doesn't cause a tooth-ache. My initial bite on these brought the sweetness of the smooth and surprisingly creamy and moist Raspberry Yogurt which coated them, tasting strongly of a definite Artificial but not unpleasant Raspberry flavour, the Yogurt melted easily and gave way to the undertones of the Pretzel which amazingly complimented the sweetness with a delicious salty crunch.. Mm!
Oh these were quite good but as I ate a few more I began to notice that they were in fact quite strong and that it was becoming a tad over-bearing and beginning to feel like it was 'overloading' my taste-buds because the experience gradually became less pleasurable.. Eventually after two or so I put these away and moved on..
The Blueberry was less pronounced in it's first bite, carrying the same texture tones as the Raspberry had with the delightfully melty, smooth and creamy Yogurt and the undertone of the salty crunchy Pretzel which just goes so damn well together but the flavour itself was a little less strong and I found myself strangely wishing for the Raspberry again.
It's not bad it's just I found that I prefer the overbearing sweetness upon second consideration and taste of the Raspberry with the salty Pretzel than the Blueberry, the Blueberry was still very good and very tasty.
All in all?
The Raspberry gets 8.2/10 Big Cat Paws
and the Blueberry? 6.2/10 Big Cat Paws
Both are above averagely delicious snacks and both are worth having but if I were to have them again I'd probably choose the Raspberry
And this dinner for James? He gobbled it up verily, I'm very happy.
