PRETZ please!

Pretz - Melon pan flavor

Recognized as one of the most popular snacks in Japan, Pretz (pronounced Purittsu) are crunchy biscuit/pretzel sticks dusted with over 75 different flavors (mostly savory ones). Sold either in a box (4 packs) or as individual snacks (1 bag), Pretz are about as addictive as a tube of Pringles. Most flavors are only sold in Japan so next time you find yourself inside a Seven Eleven in Tokyo, see how many flavors you can find!

Some specific flavors are only sold in certain parts of Japan to showcase the region's specialty - Fukuoka for example has giant Mentaiko (spicy cod roe) flavored Pretz because they make the best mentaiko. Hiroshima Pretz is Okonomiyaki (Japanese pizza), Kyoto is wasabi, and the list goes on.

So far we can say that Super Butter Pretz (which can be found in most Japanese supermarkets in the States) and Bacon Pretz are favorites of the Bamboo staff. We also love the savory Tomato Pretz and Salad Pretz, while Corn Pretz and Roast Pretz are go to options when craving something sweeter. Some flavors are definitely strange at first, but because they're so lightly dusted with seasoning, the wonderful taste of the cookie is what you're always left with in the end. Now look at the list below and see how many flavors you've tried!
