Sometimes on the road of life, you encounter a convergence of the Culinary Force.  A food so amazing it transcends its ingredients.  Each part comes together in perfect harmony to create something new, unexpected, and beautiful.

This is not one of those times.  Snyder’s of Hanover’s York Peppermint Pretzel Sandwich Dips (whew) taste exactly like you think they would.  Imagine putting a pretzel in your mouth, now a York Peppermint Patty, now chew.  Yep, that’s pretty much it.  No complexity here.  No mystical revelations.  No snack awakening.  Just two foodstuffs that are pretty good on their own, mashed together to make something that’s still pretty good.

Thery’re sort of like that Julia Roberts movie.  Or, really, all Julia Roberts movies.  She’s fine on her own.  Whatever mumbly British actor they put opposite her is ok too.  And together, the movie rolls on.  It’s watchable.  But there’s no chemistry.  You’d recommend the flick to your mom.

That’s what Snyder’s of Hanover’s York Peppermint Pretzel Sandwich Dips are.  They are a Julia Roberts movie you’d recommend to your mom.

Honestly, I didn’t think I was going to like these. I was already writing the negative review in my head before I even opened the bag.  These pretzel sandwiches don’t look that appealing, what with their chalky, circular-ish exteriors.  But they really are ok.  I don’t think I’d buy them again but I’ll finish out the bag and it won’t be wholly unenjoyable.

Give these a try, you may like them.  If you don’t, take them to the office.  People will come by and enjoy them.  You won’t be the office hero, but people will stop lowering their gaze as they speed by your cubicle.  And really, that’s all you can ask for.
