Now this is an interesting way to modify a great treat. That's what this bar is, it’s a simple redesign of a classic candy combination, chocolate and pretzels. The idea of taking a classic candy combination and turning it into a bar has worked in the past, but it doesn’t always work. There are many reasons why a classic candy combination can work, and sometimes messing with it will wreck the balance of ingredients and it may not work. Right off the bat I’ll tell you that this bar is just not as good as chocolate-covered pretzels.

Now you’re probably asking how in the world you could mess it up. While some candy remixes are complicated, chocolate and pretzels are pretty simple. In fact, I’ve made my own chocolate covered pretzels and it went perfectly. Well I asked myself the same question, and since I'm the Candy Critic I guess I have to answer. The problem with this bar is all in the balance of ingredients. There is just not enough pretzel and way too much chocolate. One of the great reasons chocolate and pretzels work is the salt to chocolate ratio, and this bar does not make it work.

It's not a bad bar, just not as good as a chocolate-covered pretzel. They could try and fix it, but I’m not sure if you could add enough chocolate to hold everything together without overpowering the pretzels.
