    These are great. Having a few simple ingredients let each flavor shine. I will also use this as a basis for adding more complex flavor profiles in the future.

    These not only are delish, they have a just a few ingredients that I usually have on hand. Never pass up something because it is quick and easy. Nice recipe!

    Based on the dates of the previous reviews, this recipe was published before.. I just saw it in the Aug. Sept. 2016 Simple & Delicious. I like the concept, but I think it was lacking the oooomph I was looking for. Maybe adding some chili powder or some hot pepper sauce to the mix would do it. I would eliminate the lemon pepper, cut back on the garlic, and jazz it up with something with a ZING to it. Take it from bland to GRAND. Thanks, Carrie, for the good idea !!

    I made this recipe last week and believe me, this is a winner. It reminded me of the Oyster Cracker Snacks without the ranch dressing. These pretzels were easy to prepare and oh, so good. A very tasty low fat snack. I highly recommend them. Here is my longer review. It is post #8.

    yummy, but a little heavy on the garlic. next time i may cut back on the amount of garlic or experiment with other seasonings.

    As soon as I saw this I knew I had to make these. What a wonderful way to add some flavor to plain old pretzles. Easy and quick to make too.

    I use dry ranch dressing and omit the lemon-pepper and it is great!

    These pretzels are ones my family loves and they think the new taste is absolutely delicious. It's a keeper, for sure, and one we'll make many more times.
