"The sweetness of the cream cheese mixture and strawberries is a nice contrast to the saltiness and crunch of the pretzels. I've made this recipe as a side dish, snack, and dessert!"

"This is a great recipe, been making it for years. I switch off by using raspberries in place of the strawberries. Equally as good either way. Of course change the jello to raspberry as well."
