In the world of snack foods, most pretzels are usually recommended as being RELATIVELY harmless stopgaps against hunger pangs. (If you stay within recommended portions.) So I generally keep some Utz’s Sourdough Specials on hand.
Now, In general I don’t eat very much. I’ve found it’s amazingly easy for my weight to stay the same or increase while consuming relatively little.
And I never buy food on impulse. Or extremely rarely.
And certainly not at the beer store.
But when I saw another shopper lift a bag of pretzels off a special display I was intrigued. The packaging was a marvel of advertising and the stuff looked pretty good. I even went for the extra salty version.
