Glico Pretz - Japanese Snack

I've always enjoyed the way Japan has cutesified (if that is a word) everyday products.

This little snack is called Pretz and it's cute. Pretz looks like pretzel sticks, but tastes like chocolate.

The Pretz comes in a little box that has a flip top that kind of reminds me of a package of cigarettes.

On the English version of the nutritional facts these pretzels are called "Baked Wheat Cracker - Pretz Caramel Cocoa." It does have a mild cocoa and caramel flavor and smells like caramel too. A great combination. I haven't had one in a long time but that flavor combination reminded me of some chocolate Rolo candy...or Caramilk Chocolate bars which used to be one of my favorite treats.

The kids loved the Pretz also. Apparently they come in different flavors, so the next time we're at the world food store I'm going to see what other flavors they carry.

One of our favorite anime's has a character that loves Pretz. We assumed it was just short for pretzels, didn't realize it was an actual brand. Makes sense. :)
