Aside from the sodium are they good or bad?

I've heard some people say they're great for you and others say they aren't good at all.

Not great...not as bad as alternatives like potato chips.

I know you can easily get 'em fat free. If you could find whole wheat ones with reduced sodium they wouldn't be bad at all. Or if you can't find the reduced sodium just scrape some of the salt off with your fingernails.

I wish they made them with out any salt, they would be sooooooooo good then.

They would taste like crap w/o salt IMO... I'm not a big pretzel fan myself, and what a strange name pretzels have. ;)

Try Genisoy Soychips... I prefer BBQ flavor. I know Safeway and QFC carry them in the health food sections. They're good, have reletively low carbs and sodium, and taste GREAT. Also gives some soy protein which is good because it's smart to get a little variety of proteins even though plan protein isn't the greatest.
