January 8th—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read; price & availability may have changed.
Our Pretzel Slims changed the way people think about -- and eat -- pretzels. They taste like pretzels, yet they eat like crackers. You could say they were revolutionary, if you were as prone to hyperbole as we are. If you like Pretzel Slims, you're a fan of sweet, and you relish the holiday season for all the peppermint goodness it brings, we think you're really going to fall for Trader Joe's Peppermint Pretzel Slims.
These Slims achieve a spot-on balance of sweet-salty-crunchy-cool that we haven't tasted in any other snack. We start with our signature Pretzel Slims, drench them in a creamy, white coating and generously adorn them with crushed peppermints. Every bite is bursting with cool, sweet, crunchy and salt. We love them after a long day of holiday shopping or as a treat while we're prepping dinner. They're surprisingly good broken into pieces and sprinkled atop ice cream. And they're surprisingly well priced at $2.99 for each six ounce bag. Perhaps not surprisingly, they're only around for the peppermint holiday season, so if peppermint is your bag, grab a bag while you can.
