Town House FlipSides Pretzel Crackers

flipsides.jpgI recently had a party where I was picking up some munchies, and my local grocer had a sign that said "Buy One Get One Free". This was a good deal in my opinion, since the box of "pretzel crackers" was $3.50. However, there was only one box left. I asked a salesperson, and he said that they had already restocked the shelf twice, and there were no more left. I was intrigued. A cracker that's so good it sells out? I opened my one box before I even got to the car. One side looked like a pretzel-shaped cracker, and the other side looked like a regular Town House cracker with grill marks. I ate a couple, and I was impressed with the pretzel-y flavor. Then, I ate a couple more. I tried to close the box, but I couldn't. By the time I got home, there were only a few crumbs in the bottom of the box. Each subsequent box purchased has disappeared with the same speed, and usually the box is eaten in one sitting, possibly two if I exercise extreme self-control. I'm convinced that if bars replaced regular pretzels with these, they would see huge profit increases. I could just sit there and eat them all night.

Phoood rating: Outstanding!

I was at the store last night and these were on sale for $2 a box. The only problem was there were only 2 boxes left and they were the cheddar variety. I bought a box and have to say, despite the fact the cheese flavor was minimal, they were very good. Who knew a cracker forged with a pretzel could be this tasty? :)

The crakers are good, if you can get by with a lot of them being broken. I could not believe how many broken crackers there were in the box. I think the Company needs to re-package this product a little better.

I cannot believe it but these crackers are still selling like hotcakes. There were none to be found at the store and it has been that way ever since I read this review.

Very good cracker. Just the way you'd hope it would taste ... pretzelly flavor in a cracker texture, with a bit of buttery cracker flavor on the finish. I reserved my comment until I verified my enthusiasm by taking a box of FlipSides to a family party, where everyone loved them! However, I agree with the previous comment that there are way too many broken crackers per box. FYI, if you can't find them at your supermarket, try Target.

I saw these advertised on t.v. and I do enjoy the townhouse cracker tried them. Oh my gosh I have not tasted anything as good as those. I agree with the lady who said she opened them and ate the whole box. They have that "bet you can't eat just one taste"..

I am addicted to your new crackers, Im on my 10 box and dont want to share them lololol Give the person who thought these up a big bonus,,then go back to the drawing board and think of a better way to pack them without comprovising the cost and then maybe Ill share them with guests if their not all broken

I actually don't like them that much.
They always leave me with an extreme wanting for something to drink, which I feel I shouldn't get after just one cracker/pretzel. Too much salt for me, I guess.
