Good for you for being willing to give them a try!..
Personally... the old one's are better... but I am going to using these pretzels in a vanilla shake that I am flavoring with toasted marshmallow sf syrup.... crushing the pretzels as a topping and also using crumbles from a brownie.... can you say SMORES??? I need three people to eat this meal with me to make it easier.... Kinda feel like a Medifast Ben and Jerry's..... =)..
Really? ROFL!!!! Sorry, there have been so many threads about this over the last week.
Not new flavors, new formulation of the old flavors which, as with most Medifast products are not popular with some and loved by others...
I am a little bitter that they have wheat in them now.
I got the new formulation, but the OP made we wonder about flavors. (not that I'd be able to enjoy them since they have wheat in them).
Oh well. I really like the pudding...
I got my first order of them today and just tried them as my evening meal..
IMHO: They are by far my absolute favorite Medifast food. LOVE THEM!!.
They are softer in texture than what I would consider to a true pretzel but still have a good crunch. I think the flavor is great (Honey Mustard) and didn't notice the bad aftertaste some others mentioned...
I wonder if crushed, the new ones would make a filler/binder of sorts for the meat loaf recipes. Hmmm...just a thought. Maybe a silver lining? Never had an urge to order pretzels in the first place, but now I'm thinking of ordering a sample to see what they'd be like in meat balls or meat loaf. If it's a wild success, I shall post...
I gotta say I was a bit sad at first with the change.... but the new ones are growing on me! My mom, who never had the old ones, thinks they're great..
If they were coming out with a new flavor, I would love it to be Buffalo!..
Oooh. Buffalo flavored. I would be all over that..
I tried the new cinnamon pretzels tonight. My take on them: less cinnamon and sugar but better texture. Kind of like cinnamon toast crunch. A bit of an aftertaste but nothing that won't grow on you like the rest of the Medifast foods. I won't stop ordering them cuz I love the convenience of the grab and go..
You have the BEST ideas! Here's another one I am going to try!!..
Why not? I used to crush the parm puffs to use as meatloaf fillers as well as coating for fish and chicken. It was great!..
I, too, caved and ordered...I am saving my last two bags of old cinnamon and old honey mustard to savor. I usually eat my honey mustard with a flavored laughing cow (chipolte).
Should get my new pretzels next week, hopefully before Thanksgiving!..
Glad you like the new pretzels. I am not sure yet. They arent sweet enough for me, but maybe it's because i'm a sugar lover..
Does anyone like the puffs? I eat them every day..
I hope Medifast keeps up the good work bringing us new food! I wonder what it will be next. I cant wait..
Three of my friends are getting on medifast this week!!! They've heard me bragging enough I guess and now are piling on with all of us!..
I hated the old cinnamon ones, but loved the old honey mustard ones. I ordered both of the new kind and am optimistic I will have them tomorrow!..
I think they are much better than the original! The cinnamon pretzels have a nice sweetness to them that I personally like AND the consistency is better. Not has hard as the others. I just received my order yesterday and have had two packages already!..
My first shipment of the "new" honey mustard pretzels should be coming in today. I LOVED the old ones so I hope the new ones will not be disappointing...
I got the new cinnamon ones and was disappointed at first, but love them now. To me, they are "breadier" than the old ones and sometimes I want something that has that bread taste!.
I'm actually really disappointed I forgot to grab a bag this morning on my way out the door. I have the munchies something awful and have absolutely nothing at work that will satisfy that crunch I want. I have eggs, pudding, drinks and soup. No crunch to any of those! LOL...
