Woah, this is a BIG bar. Wow, that dark chocolate is RICH. Waaah, the “guts” of the bar are more like a bowl of Rice Krispies that sat out on the counter overnight. I don’t see anything that resembles a pretzel, nor am I really tasting any sea salt. The dark chocolate is king here, and I can’t believe I’m saying this, it needs to be toned down, or this bar should only be called “Dark Chocolate w/ Mystery Crunch.” I’m itching for the pretzel and sea salt, and 75% of my bites are resulting in dark chocolate and what I guess is the “Brown Crisp Rice” in the ingredient list.

But for the length and width, and relatively low calories, if you are a dark chocoholic, this would be a stellar choice. For me, I want what the label tells me, both by referring to this as “Chocolate Pretzel with Sea Salt”, but also w/ the cute pretzel twist images. Oh, and while we’re talking about the artwork on the wrapper, for some reason I equate bright red packaging w/ any manner of “berry” flavoring. This wrapper contains so much glossy red in the foil, I took one look at it, and read and re-read the description, still convinced that it was going to be a chocolate-covered cherry, or dark chocolate raspberry flavor. 2/5
