Hi there, firstly I am so sorry for the extremely late review! I was fortunate to receive the Sesame Pretzels and Garlic Rice Sticks. I really enjoyed both of these products, especially the Garlic Rice Sticks. I found myself munching away on these and finished the packet without even realising! I have since purchased both items and they were great to have over the holidays with the various BBQ's that took place with family and friends. Would highly recommend! Thanks

Thanks for the chance to review. Apologies for the delayed review.
We received the Garlic Rice crisps which are really yummy, we found them a nice snack that’s a little different to other snacks on offer.
We got the Buffalo Wing Pretzel Crisps – these were very salty for my taste and unfortunately they do not seem to sit well with my stomach. So these will not be on my shopping list.

So I know this is all about us but I have to say these snacks were so good my very fussy 3 yr old couldn’t get enough of the sesame flavoured Pretzel Crisps. I will be honest and wasn’t that fussed on the Sesame ones but I did find the garlic ones in store at 4 Square so purchased those and really enjoyed them… They make a good on the go or between meals snack and are great to use for dipping rather than oily boring potato chips.
The Rice Snacks were incredible!!! I received the hot and spicy and they were full of flavour and so spicy the kids stayed right away… Yussss finally a snack just for mum that will be safe in the cupboard haha. I found the more I ate these the more I wanted them they are light so u don’t feel bloated from them and resealable bags…. Winning!!! The package sizes are great for the cost very reasonable and the packets wernt filled of air there was a decent amount of product inside. Both snacks are very versatile and wouldn’t hesitate to use on platter board for guests or as a nice snack while watching G a dvd at home on the couch.

I am always keen to try new snacks so I thought Garlic Rice Sticks from me:real sounded like something that I would like. The packet said they were hot air baked, made with brown rice and low in sugar so weren't going to be too bad for me but I also hoped this didn't compromise the flavour as it does so often with other products.
I read the ingredients and thought I looked like it was a gluten free product but it didn't say that anywhere on the packet. I showed my sister who is gluten intolerant and she agreed it was gluten free but it probably hadn't been certified or may be made on the same equipment as products containing gluten. For this reason she wouldn't recommend it for celiacs but it would be suitable for people like her that can handle a little gluten. Unfortunately she didn't try these snacks as it was Christmas Day and she was already full.
I liked the taste of the rice sticks and didn't find it was too strong but my 7 year old daughter wasn't keen on the flavour. They had a nice crunch to them but not so much you would be embarrassed to eat them around others. I could taste the garlic but wasn't worried about my breath. It is one of those foods if you didn't read the packet you wouldn't know it was a healthier option.
I thought the packaging was very handy. You could see what was left in the packet or if you were buying crumbs rather than sticks (not that it was a problem for us). It was also resealable and when I returned to finish off the packet two weeks later the rice sticks were still really fresh. I will be buying these to add to a gift basket for my sister or to share with her as it is often hard to find different snacks for her.

Our family adore Garlic it is very rare that you find a meal that does not have some hint of garlic added to it. When I saw this up for review I tossed up whether we should try them because to be honest as much as I love my rice meals I am not a huge Rice Stick fan but since it had garlic in it I figured why not.
Preparing Christmas lunch yesterday I needed something to nibble on while cooking as the food and smells were driving my taste buds insane. I decided to try this and asked my husband first if he wanted some. Taking one out he ate it and his eyes grow wide and said 'yum I could murder a packet of these all by myself' as he took a handful out. My two little scavengers popped there heads up and quickly come to try some, they both said 'ewww they look weird but they are garlic so they can't be that bad' (my thoughts exactly) and tried and both said they taste so good. So I finally decided to give it a go and even I thought 'wow'.
For something that does not look visually appealing they actually taste really good. Once you get the idea out of your head that it is Brown Rice Sticks they are really good. They are crunchy yet light. My husband has already put in a request saying that he would like them for his lunches and both girls said they would too - so an absolute hit in the house. My husband did comment he did not understand why they needed to add the Sweetener (Sucralose) to it as it would already of been rather sweet besides that complete positive comments from everyone. Also love that the packet is resealable so these will be perfect for snacks at the beach in the awesome Kiwi summer we are having.

I adore garlic, it's a staple in my kitchen and used almost everyday, so I was keen to try this new snack and see if it had a nice garlic flavour to it (I'm usually dissapointed by the lack of garlic). I noticed immediately that this is a resealable packet, something which is always handy though the plastic didn't quite want to rip for me. I like getting snacks that are low in sugar but haven't liked brown rice in snacks before so was dubious about how this would end up tasting. Miss 8 wanted to get right into tasting and gave it much thought but ended up saying that she didn't really like the taste so didn't want any more.
I decided to share these with my mum and she liked the sound of garlic so grabbed herself a handful. She ate them all but more because they were in her hand than actual enjoyment and declined having any more. While she was trying them Miss 6 came down and took a small bite of it before giving it two thumbs down and running to the bathroom to spit it out. My mum and I discussed what we thought of it and both agreed that we found it too sweet and it just didn't give us any garlic taste at all. I had to google black garlic, so would have liked a little info about that on the packaging.
Neither of us really enjoyed this and both agreed that this won't be something that we would eat again, though it was good price wise.

I received the buffalo wing pretzel crisps and the garlic rice sticks, they were both very nice, very crispy and full of flavour, I had them as a snack by themselves and also tried them with some dip.
Really liked how both packets were resealable but the piece to rip off didn’t leave much left to grip to open.
Myself, my husband and 3 children all enjoyed them.
I would definitely buy both of these for a bbq gathering or just for a snack.

We received the Buffalo Wing flavour Pretzel Crisps and Garlic flavour rice sticks. Thank you for selecting me however I do need to be honest and these flavours weren’t to my liking unfortunately. I thought the Pretzels had a good crunchy texture but the flavour was very strong and salty. They seem to be marketed as an upmarket snack but have the flavour of a Shapes cracker which wasn’t very appealing. The smell of the rice sticks was a bit off putting but the flavour was a little better. The texture was light and crisp which was nice.

So the picture on the packet looked a tiny bit like dog food to me so I was not expecting much from these. But I have to admit they completely delivered. The sturdy packet stops the rice sticks breaking up. and the container is resealable which is helpful (but not able to be recycled which is a shame). I used them all in one sitting so I never did reseal the packet. The volume was really good and bigger than the bowl I thought they would fit in which is great.
There was a clear garlic smell when they were served which was lovely and made me quite excited to try them. I do enjoy garlic as a flavour and although this didn't taste too strong it was clearly in the garlic family of tastes - more of a roasted garlic vibe. I do have to admit I would probably mix them with something else for a visual look that is a bit more attractive. This is why I have not included a photo as I felt it would not do the taste/texture and generally good things justice.
The flavour was strong and just a little bit sweet. Almost a taste of caramelised onion about it which was great. The taste was not too heavy and we had a lovely alternative to potato chips. I will definitely be including these for my gluten-free friends as they are very tasty. The texture is ideal - light and crunchy with lots of consistent flavour. I would totally recommend these as long as you want to eat them in the dark as the look needs a bit of work... maybe they would be best as an accompaniment to something else which had a bit more colour. The shape was good for easy picking up though.

Thanks so much for selecting me to review these products, it was a lovely surprise receiving them!!
I was sent the Sesame flavour pretzel crisps and Garlic flavour rice sticks. Both were thoroughly enjoyed by both myself and my children.
I prefer the pretzel crisps to regular pretzels, and they are so versatile…can be eaten on their own, with dips or even toppings instead of crackers. The pack size is also great for sharing, plenty in there!! Have already purchased another bag of these from the supermarket the other day. Perfect accompaniment to the platters over the Xmas holidays.
The garlic rice sticks were quite nice and crunchy and I liked that they were quite healthy. The flavour was quite sweet and savoury which was a little unusual, would have enjoyed more if they weren’t quite so sweet, but I did enjoy them for something different. Good addition for lunchboxes also.
Thanks again for the opportunity to trial these products.

We have trialed the garlic flavour rice sticks. After opening the packet, l wasn’t that impressed with the smell coming out of it but after tasting I was pleasantly surprised, they are crispy, tasty and crunchy. The packet has a good design. Both my little ones, one year old and four year old, love these too.
We had the original flavour of pretzels. My favourite. I really loved these, so did the rest of my family. And again, the packaging is great and functional. Will buy again. Thank you.

Have just uploaded my picture! We received the deli garlic parmasean pretzels and the cocoa rice crackers! The kids were fond of both of these products and we used them in both of the kids school lunches throughout the week so the quantity in each packet is great! The taste was very nice and with fussy kids we encourage everything they end up liking so we have popped these on our grocery list to restock! Thanks for allowing us to trial them! I also brought the cocoa rice crackers to work and being low in sugar the baby I look after loved them!

These were delicious. My husband and I sat down one evening when the kids had gone to bed and tucked into them. I LOVED the garlic rice chips. Nice and light and full of flavour (my husband didn’t but I think that’s because he’s not a big garlic fan). The buffalo wing pretzels on the other hand were to die for. Enough heat but not too much. We both put them on our lunches the next day and they were so yum!

Delicious! That was my first reaction upon tearing open my packs of Garlic Pretzels and Turmeric Rice Sticks and digging in. I adored the garlic flavour, and found the turmeric very pleasant too. I loved that i was inclined to only eat a few at a time rather than go crazy like i do with chips. The two bags lasted me 3 days, a record in this house.

Thanks for giving me the opportunity to trial these products.
I had the garlic rice sticks which were a nice change from chippies, great flavour and crunch I didn’t like the smell when I first opened the pack but once tried them I was pleasantly surprised. My 18mth old also loved them!
We took them to work and also had them at the end of the day. Great with a beer .
We also tried the buffalo pretzels but I wasn’t a fan too much flavour for my liking. Maybe if they were just salted.

Thanks again.

I was sent the ‘original’ pretzel crisps and the ‘tumeric’ rice sticks. It was a lovely surprize finding these in my letterbox

The products were shared between myself and my 2 sons – 9 and 6 years of age.

I found the texture and lightness of the rice sticks great, but struggled a bit with the tumeric flavour (which I have never been fond of). However, my sons devoured them and asked for more when the bag was finished! With all these positives, I will definately be seeking other flavours in the supermarkets and am really hoping to find the garlic ones soon!

In regards to the pretzel crisps! Yum! I have never been a big pretzel fan, despite buying them regularly for my eldest son. However the flavour and crispiness of these were a real treat! They also went really well dipped in humis and will definately be a regular on our grocery list!

So... garlic. When I think of garlic, I think of stir-fry, when I'm not thinking of garlic bread with cheese but obviously that one isn't going to work with rice sticks... so, stir-fry. I had some diced chicken in the freezer I was thinking of having for dinner, so I thought "Why not" and whipped up an experimental dish with onion, capsicum, tomatoes, a packet of 2-minute noodles and a generous handful of these rice sticks broken into thirds.
Frying the onion and capsicum with some pepper and salt until tender, I tossed in the chicken bits and swished them around until they were almost cooked. In went the tomatoes, roughly 3tsp of mixed dried herbs and the broken-down brick of noodles along with about half a cup of chicken stock and half a cup of milk, lid on, simmer away with the occasional stir to prevent it sticking and burning. With a few minutes to go and almost no liquid left, I threw in roughly a quarter of the pack of rice sticks after chopping them into thirds, took the pan off the heat and left it for 2 minutes. Just 15 minutes after I had started chopping onions, I had a very generous meal - enough for 2-3 portions - that tasted amazing!
The rice sticks made great croutons, adding a wonderful texture that didn't interfere with the flavour of the meal at all. While I can't say for certain that it added significantly to the taste, I was able to detect garlic in there fairly easily, especially when I bit down on a crouton. I also had a few on their own, and while nice enough, I found they were a little bland for my tastes. That said, I have always leaned towards full-flavoured foods and 'delicate tastes' are not my usual fare.
Would I buy these in future? Quite possibly. I have enough left that I want to experiment with them in a Summer salad - again reprising the role of crunchy crouton - as I suspect they will fare much better in that format. By the end of my stir-fry meal they had become quite soggy. Still, they did well and I respect the fact they are far healthier than many, many other snack foods out there. Well worth exploring, especially if you have ideas on experimenting with Asian-inspired cuisine.

I received the original Pretzel Crisps, I really liked this idea! I love pretzels and this flattened shape makes them much better for dipping and I think I actually prefer them to the usual shape pretzels. Original is always a good flavour, went pretty sweet with a beer! I’d really love to try some of the other flavours so i’ll buy some over Christmas, perfect to put out as snacks with people coming over or just for a night in.

I also got to try the garlic Rice sticks. I really liked the texture, light and crisp but I have to say I wasn’t overly keen on the flavour. it wasn’t too garlicy but it was quite sweet, just not for me. But I will buy the hot and spicy and cocoa flavours as I think i’d really like them in a different flavour.

thanks for the opportunity to try these products

I was thrilled when the box arrived and i opened to find a full size bag of Pretzel Chips and Rice Sticks.

The products both come in very generous sizes, perfect for a family to share. I also liked the fact the bags are colour coded so very easy to remember which flavour to get when i purchase more.

The Pretzel Chips we received were sesame flavoured and had a great taste, a great crunch, and were quite filling. I can’t wait to see these in the supermarket and try the other flavours.

The Rice Sticks were quite a different texture to what i was expecting but in a very good way. They were really tasty, coming to us in garlic flavour.

I now know what i will be serving up as pre Christmas nibbles to my guests rather than the bog standard chips and dip. Love them!

I was lucky enough to receive the Original Pretzel Crisps and Garlic Rice Sticks to try out.

Loved the flatter, thinner shape of the pretzels. It makes them not so hard to bite on, and opens up plenty of possibilities for loading with toppings or dipping. I didn’t have any dip in the house when I opened these to try out, so improvised with some sour cream and pesto mixed together which was really delicious. I am really keen to try some different flavours in these too, as I’ve never tried any other flavours of pretzel than plain, and am intrigued what they would be like.

The rice sticks were surprisingly very sweet! The garlic flavour was quite mild. Although still nice, these snacks didn’t really sit far enough down the savoury end of the scale for me as I would have expected. The texture and the crunch of the rice sticks were good, I would be interested to try some of the other flavours to see how they compare to the garlic ones though.

I also really liked the stand-up, resealable bags that both products were packaged in. Makes me feel less inclined to need to polish off the whole lot in one sitting since I know they will stay fresh!! It also makes them convenient to take somewhere to eat on the go. But as others have said, with the Pretzel Crisps, there were a fair few broken ones in the packet – not ideal if using for dipping or with toppings.

Thanks for the opportunity to review, I would buy these again, but likely try some different flavours next time.

We received the original pretzel crisps and garlic rice sticks. The pretzel crisps were a huge hit with both the adults and kids of the household. Crispy, light and not doughy like regular pretzels can be. Will definitely purchase these in future. The rice sticks I enjoyed but the kids and hubby were not fans. I thought the kids would enjoy as are big rice snack eaters, they didn’t enjoy the flavour or the texture. I would buy again perhaps in another flavour. Thank you for choosing us to trial them

I received the Sesame Taste HQ Pretzel Chips, they were so moreish, we ate them by themselves & then I made an avocado dip and they were just even better. I even popped some into my son’s lunchbox (he thought they were delish too). I will definitely be buying these for over summer nibbles. We also got the Garlic Rice Sticks, these were a very strange taste, a bit too sweet I think for a savoury stick. They were nicer with the avocado dip. We liked the texture, so may try another flavour.

Oh my! I was given the chance to review these products which was great as I am a huge snack fan, especially of the crunchy, salty kind. I love that they are healthier than potato chips and a bit different.

The Pretzel Crisps…. I tried Buffalo Wings and I honestly couldn’t get enough of them. They had the most amazing, vibrant flavour. A nice little bite and so, so much flavour! They were thin and crispy and a really nice change to regular pretzels. I ate them while having a few drinks, while watching a bit of tv and while reading a book at night (clearly I need to get out more). I can honestly say, I loved them, I’m a huge fan and will definitely be buying them when I see them on the shelves.

The other product I got to try was Garlic Rice Sticks. I really wanted to like them, they have an amazing texture, they are low in fat and sugar, which is a huge plus for me. But… the flavour was not for me. It was not to my taste at all. I think if I had another flavour, it would have been different.

In conclusion… Pretzel Crisps, yes! Loved everything about them, even the packaging was good. Shiny, appealing and good size. Will definitely buy them and can totally recommend them.

Rice Sticks. Great texture but didn’t like the flavour at all. I will try them again if they are at a good price as I’d love to try the other flavours.

I shared this packet with a friend who was keen to try them for herself - she had heard about them already and is a great fan of anything containing garlic, so she put her hand up immediately to help me review them. She already had some ideas on how we could serve them, and I was happy to go along with her as her ideas are usually pretty good.
Her first comment was on the packaging. She loves packs that are resealable as, like me, she travels a lot and likes to have no-fuss openers. There is nothing worse than having to fight with a difficult seal only to have it burst open and scatter the contents everywhere. Worse still are those packets that have an arrow with a "tear here" notice but neglect to tell you the slit is non-existent so you just end up attacking them with the scissors anyway. The tear strip on these packs is really easy and the reclose function is sturdy and easy to use.
Then we sniffed the contents. I always do this as I want to get a first impression of the product inside, but she thought this was rather strange. However, she followed suit and reported back that there was a definite whiff of garlic although it was not quite as strong as she had anticipated. Then came the first taste test. The crisps were very nice, lighter than we expected from a rice product, and much more garlicky than the sniff test had suggested.
We then divided the contents into three. The first portion was to be served with an off the shelf feta and spinach dip with some small pieces of smoked salmon stirred through. This combination was utterly delicious although the garlic was slightly lost to the feta; there was some competition for flavour. I quite liked the mix, but after we had tried several crisps dipped in it we thought there was room for improvement. Probably a less highly flavoured dip might have been better.
We had the second portion with a mug of home made chilled pumpkin soup with a blob of cream. This was a lovely choice and one we would have again. The crisps were served on a separate plate, but both of us tried dunking a couple and agreed that this was a great way to have them, slightly messy and very decadent! Best not eaten in polite company however as they tend to drip. Possibly a good choice for a beach picnic with the soup travelling in a chilly bin to keep it cold.
Finally, the best of all. Inspired by the devils on horseback idea, my friend used the larger pieces of salmon to wrap around the crisps; this was served with a small glass of port. I would not have thought of doing this, but it worked really well and they were so quick and easy to prepare. The crisps on their own are not especially attractive to look at - in fact, if I were serving them plain, I might be tempted to set them out in a pattern on the plate so that they would draw the eye. But with the salmon they looked superb. Another idea to file away for entertaining purposes, and another food I will certainly be purchasing again..

Yum! I was lucky enough to receive the buffalo wing flavoured pretzel crisps and I absolutely loved them. The flavour was definitely bold as it states on the packet and even had a bit of a kick to it (which I love). The flat design was really appetising as it felt like you were eating chips and although I’ve eaten plain pretzels from the supermarket to the death these ones felt new and different. Will 100% buy again when I see them in the supermarket next.

I received the garlic flavoured rice sticks and they had a lot to live up to after the pretzel crisps. To be completely honest I would never normally try something like this, especially this flavour. I only opened the packet to give the review but actually I was pleasantly surpised! I’m sitting nibbling them now and I can’t really stop. There is almost a slight sweetness to the garlicky flavour that makes you go back for more. Being surprised how nice they are I would buy these again also as they would go down a treat on a platter with some cool summer beverages on the side. Big plus for me too that they brown rice and are air baked as opposed to fried. I feel like I can have a bigger serving size. Definitely keen to trial the other flavours too as the garlic was delicious and different.

Thank you for allowing us to trial these. We received the Buffalo Wing flavoured pretzel crisps. The packaging is nice and bright and I love the re-sealable pack. They stayed nice and fresh. Aside from them being quite spicy for us we enjoyed them. I made a natural yoghurt dip to help counteract the spicyness. I think these are a great alternative to chips and crackers. Perfect for bbqs, after school snack, lunchbox etc. Looking forward to trying the other flavours. We also tried the garlic flavoured rice sticks. The packaging is great with a re-sealable bag so contents stay fresh. We were not fussed on this flavour. I found it to be very sweet and couldn’t really taste the garlic. These are also great for the lunchbox, parties etc. While I wouldn’t buy this particular flavour again, I am keen to try the others that are available. I have already told friends about these products and would continue to buy if we enjoy the other flavours.

I sampled the Buffolo wing pretzels and the garlic rice sticks. Very happy I received the buffolo wing flavour and they were very very tasty. Heaps of flavouring. They were quite thin and unfortunately most of them were broken but they still tasted good. I took them to work to share with my colleagues and they all raves about them. I also sampled the garlic rice sticks. They tasted good. Had an unusual flavour to them, almost a little sweet and garlicky. I also took these to work to share. People weren’t too keen to try them but once I persuaded them to have a taste they came back for more. I think these are a great healthy snack to have for lunches and also when having guests around.

Thank you for selecting us to trial these fabulous products! We received the garlic rice sticks and the sesame pretzel crisps. I liked the packaging for both products, especially the face that they could be re-sealed. In a busy household this is so much easier than having to hunt for a container to seal food in. The first product we trialled were the garlic rice sticks. The unique, mouth-watering flavour was too much for Daddy to resist. When I got home from a Playcentre meeting the previously unopened packet was almost empty! However, he was kind enough to leave some for me to try. Mr 4 year old said they were nice (which is a big compliment from a 4 year old!). We all really enjoyed this product with Daddy remarking how he enjoyed that they were a light snack. I’ve been on a mission to lose the baby weight so was really pleased that these were a low fat alternative to many other calorie laden snacks. We would definitely purchase this product in the future. The second product we trialled were the Sesame Pretzel Crisps. We enjoyed these when Granny and Grandad visited and had them with drinks. Again, these felt a very light, yet tasty snack and a ‘guilt-free’ alternative to many other snacks. Both my boys enjoyed these (my 2 year old has just polished off a bowl of these as a mid-afternoon snack). These were a big hit in our house. I felt both products were extremely versatile as they could be kept in my nappy bag as a snack, used in kindy lunchboxes or served with drinks at a barbecue. I will definitely be looking out for these products at the supermarket and be recommending them to my family and friends.They will be especially good over the Christmas period to balance out all the tasty treats on offer at that time of year. Thanks again, for the opportunity to trial them.

I was lucky enough to recieve the sesame pretzel crisps which were delicious. I opened them for my afternoon tea and soon had a couple of helpers. I loved the flavour, the crispness and the fact they are much lighter than other pretzel snacks. The packaging to me indicates a snack more for adults than kids and would be more than happy to take as a share pack to picnics or BBQ’s.

The brown rice snack I took to work for morning tea, had packaging that Alison had a healthy appeal and because they are so light they seem more guilt free! However, the garlic flavour was much too sweet and not very appealing. I would be interested in trying other flavours, but I am unlikely to recommend the garlic version.

I revived the Garlic Rice Sticks and Sesame Pretzel Crisps. I absolutely love the pretzels! I found a delicious way to eat them was with avocado. I used the pretzel as a scoop, which worked really well and i ate the whole avo with the pretzel crisps! Oops.
I gave my partner some of the pretzels in his lunch and he came home wanting to know “what those amazing things were!”. I cant wait to try the other flavors and will definitely be putting these on our next shopping list. I think they will make a really versatile snack for platters this summer which is awesome- so much better than boring crackers.
We didn’t enjoy the Rice Sticks as much, I found them a little bit too sweet but did enjoy how light and crunchy they were. My partner said he didn’t mind them, especially with some hummus, but it wasn’t his fave. We will definitely be buying the Pretzel again. Thanks Her World for choosing us to be part of this yummy trial!

We have received the Garlic Rice Sticks and Original Pretzels. They were quite a hit with young and old at a recent barbeque we had. I thought the packaging of both was quite good. Liked the fact that you could see the rice sticks in the pack so you know what you’re getting.

We had the Sesame flavoured pretzel’s and garlic flavoured rice sticks.
Both products were so tasty. I ate mine as a snack while on the road in between calls for work and to be honest couldn’t get enough of either snack. The pretzels had a pleasant taste , nice flavour and now I need to find where they are sold as I want to try the other flavours…..and as for the rice sticks they were so yummy and didn’t have that sticky after taste that sometimes comes with rice sticks . Also I love that you can load different foods on them and have them as a cracker if you want to have a bit more of a snack with the pretzels. We would like to know where these healthy snacks will retail from other than online as we don’t buy chips etc but will be buying these crisps and sticks.
Thankyou Her World for giving us the opportunity to trail these snacks.

I received the trial a few days ago and was excited to find out I was part of this trial. I had both of the samples as snacks. I also shared with some other Mums and my family.

I had the original Pretzel Crisps which were really good, in fact they were very mourish and I had to pry them out of my hands and share them around to stop myself from eating the whole bag. I love that they are flat so that you can put toppings on them if you wish. Its great the bag is resealable too.

The Brown Rice Sticks I had the garlic flavour which I didn’t like. I found them to be too sweet for a savoury snack and would have liked there to be perhaps less sugar and more salt. I shared these with some other mums who thought the same thing too. My two year old niece however loved them. She is gluten free and dairy free so it was nice for her to have something at my house which she enjoyed. Again the resealable bag is a winner with this too.

We were pretty excited when these arrived after school on Tuesday. We got to try the Original Pretzel Crisps & Turmeric Rice Sticks. And I’m sad to say it looks like we lucked out with the flavours we received ( the Buffalo Wing sounds amazing) Everyone like the Pretzel crisps but everyone likes pretzels which they where just squashed pretzels. So I might have to look out for one of the other flavours next time I’m shopping. The Rice sticks had a good texture and crunch but we all thought the Turmeric flavour was weird, 2 kids and 2 adults and no one really liked the flavour, again I would probably buy these but not in this flavour, the Garlic or hot and spicy sound a bit more appealing. Thanks again for letting us try these snacks, I am always looking for healthy snacks for our family to enjoy

I received the buffalo wing flavour pretzel crisps and these were delicious, I really liked the size of them and the amount of flavour was perfect, they are quite spicy if people aren’t used to it but I really liked them and would surely buy them again. I also got the garlic flavour rice sticks and these were also a hit, a nice flavour to them and crunch. Nice packet size too for snacking

I had a couple girlfriends over for dinner and a catch up last night and these arrived at the perfect time! I received the Original Pretzel Crisps and the Tumeric Rice Sticks and they went down a treat.

The girls and I devoured the Rice Sticks and I love that the taste wasn’t overpowering – it was just enough. I was surprised at how light these were as a snack and will definitely be picking some more up to pop in the cupboard and to take to work to help curb my afternoon snacking habit.

The pretzel crisps were my absolute fave and they’ve already made my shopping list – and a few of the girls too! These weren’t too salty and were absolutely delish with some hummus and avocado/garlic dip. I will definitely be picking a couple of bags up over the summer as we have quite a few BBQs planned as well as a road-trip up north so I think these will be the perfect thing to munch on.

I just looked at buying some more Pretzel Crisps off the Taste HQ website and they are a great price, but I’d love to be able to buy a box of a few different flavours for the 6 packs for $30 if that is something they look at offering.

All in all, would highly recommend to everyone!

We received our products so exciting. We got the sesame pretzels and the garlic little snack sticks. Who would have thought that I would have found a use for them straight away. It was Caesar salad night last night which we love but I was missing an important ingredient the croutons. Solution I just crushed up some of the garlic sticks they made AMAZING croutons crunchy great garlic taste and stayed crunchy as they do not soak up the sauce…… These are now going to be my go to for instant croutons or something that needs a bit of crunch I made a fabulous broccoli soup these crushed on top PERFECT.

Thank you, I received my package yesterday. I received the Buffalo Wing Pretzel Crisps and Garlic Rice Sticks. Firstly I love that you can reseal the pack, this makes taking these out on a picnic or just having them in the cupboard to snack on helpful. The packets also stand upright, so no falling over and making crumbs.
I opened the Pretzel Crisps first as the flavour appealed to me. Wow, these are amazing, I love the spicy aftertaste and I know these would be great dipped in a dip or salsa. I am looking forward to trying the other flavours when I find them in the supermarket.

This morning I tried the Rice Sticks in Garlic. I actually found these too sweet, the aftertaste of garlic is nice though. I would be prepared to try these in another flavour as I do like that it is a rice stick snack. I do like the clear packaging though, it looks inviting.

Pretzel Crisps were a clear winner for me though and they will be on my Christmas/Summer grocery list.

The Garlic Rice Sticks we received where absolutely delicious.They were light, crunchy and had a light garlic flavour. Although we ate them straight from the bag ( the teens fought over them !) we also decided that we would buy some to use as crunchy croutons in salads too. I think anyone from school kids to adults would like these in their lunch boxes.
We also received Buffalo Wing Pretzel Crisps and WOW! I love spicy chips but these take snacks to the next level. It’s like eating spicy potato chips and pretzels at the same time. I love them plain but they would be delicious with guacamole or used instead of corn chips in nachos.
We will definitely be looking out for these in the supermarket and eating a lot more of both of them at BBQs and picnics over Summer and beyond!

Super stoked to get home to a TasteHQ delivery this afternoon! Feelin quiet peckish I gave both the Garlic Rice Sticks and Buffalo Wings Pretzels a taste! Holey Moley those pretzels are bursting with massive spicy flavor! I love them, they will go well on the platters over summer! Maybe a little spicy for the kids but I am keen to try the other flavours in the range!
The rice crackers are different! In a good way! I think the kids will like these in the lunchboxes! A little bit sweet but a nice roasted garlic flavor too.
Thanks guys for sending me these crackers to try! Yum!

I received the Cocoa rice sticks and sesame seed pretzel crisps.
I was abit hesitant about the cocoa rice sticks but I wasn’t pleasantly surprised at how yummy and tasty they are, so light, crispy and flavor full.
Great snack or treat for when your on the run.
Pretzel crisps were yummy also, I had mine along with some roasted onion and garlic dip and it was absolutely delicious! But they added equally just as nice on there own.
