Pepperidge Farm Chocolate Mint & Pretzel Goldfish Mix is another new snack mix released at the same time as the honey mustard mix I reviewed last week. This one was not as successful for me. The chocolate mint cookie pieces tasted sort of like the inside of a Thin Mint – nice and light and crunchy, and the chocolate mint flavor was bold but not overly sweet. I liked the subtlety and restraint.

But the salty pretzel added in was a little weird. The pretzels itself were good, but salty mint? I feel like I MUST have tried that in other places, but I couldn’t pinpoint where. It’s not that it’s a bad combo, and I noshed a good number of handfuls, but it’s not the most natural pairing. I give PF credit for the effort, but I wouldn’t buy these again.

Regular chocolate cookie with pretzel? I can dig it. The mint threw everything off for me.

PURCHASED AT: Wegmans, Germantown, MD

COST: $1.99 on sale

    I tried these weeks ago with really high hopes and I had the same thoughts about the Thin Mint flavor and consistency and also about the weird-ness of the pretzel. In fact, I literally ended up tossing most of the pretzel pieces and just ate the chocolate ones.

  2. Kaitlyn says:

    this flavor combo makes no sense to me.

  3. Carla says:

    In theory, it could actually be good. After all, you seem chocolate mint covered pretzels and peppermint covered pretzels at Christmas time, right?
