Dealer Joe’s Pumpkin Spice Pretzel Slims

Trader Joe's Pumpkin Spice Pretzel Slims

A lot in life is about adaptation. 

Take that metallic rack behind the bag of PS pretzels within the photograph, for instance. It is an Asian dish drying rack we purchased after we have been full-time RVing. It simply sits over half of your sink and lets moist dishes drip dry. It was excellent for the restricted area, light-weight, and was far simpler to fold up and toss in a drawer for journey than any conventional dish rack may need been. We received within the behavior of solely utilizing one half of our sink for soiled dishes and the opposite was reserved for drying, which pressured us to do dishes as soon as the sink was simply half full. Dishes are solely daunting once you’ve received two sides stacking up and haven’t got a lot area to work within the sink. For those who’re pressured to clean when it is solely half full, it by no means looks like a giant chore. The strategy labored so effectively for us that we nonetheless use the identical space-saving drying rack in our residence, and we have caught to the unstated rule that dishes get washed earlier than even one half of the sink is full. 

Likewise, the solar wasn’t out yesterday after I went to snap the product pic, so I improvised and used the good even lighting we now have proper above our sink to take this photograph. I do not assume it will win any Pulitzers or something like that, however it’s enough contemplating the dearth of pure illumination. To cite Albus Dumbledore, “Happiness may be discovered within the darkest of instances, if one solely remembers to activate the sunshine.”

Dealer Joe’s appears to improvise equally with their merchandise. “What else can we pumpkin spice-ify?” they ask. “The peppermint pretzel slims that labored in December will work as effectively in October if we pumpkinize them.”

They usually do. That is most likely probably the most conventional “pumpkin pie spice” merchandise we have reviewed this yr. The odor of cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice wafts from the bag from the second it is opened. The pretzels style distinctly of the identical pumpkin spices, however they do not overdo it both. The product may be very candy, dessert-like, however the salty “crushed pumpkin seeds” assist steadiness out the sugariness. These are one among my favourite components on this providing. Who knew pepitas would get even tastier when smashed? 

The primary ingredient right here is definitely the yogurt-based coating. There’s extra of that than precise pretzel materials. I like yogurt coating simply high quality, however these pretzels would not have suffered a lot if that they had been, you understand…precise pretzels. I feel I made the identical grievance concerning the peppermint slims. Ultimately, they’re nonetheless very tasty. The yogurt > pretzel vibe simply sends these extra within the route of dessert than salty snack. There’s not a ton of breadiness within the taste, both, if you understand what I am saying. It is nearly a white chocolate + pumpkin spice style greater than a pretzel style.

For those who’re large into pumpkin spice or have a depraved candy tooth, I may see these being fairly addicting. I am certain Sonia and I’ll plow by our bag pretty expeditiously. I feel we’re about 4 stars a bit for Dealer Joe’s Pumpkin Spice Pretzel Slims.
