I've tried the fat-free, the cheese splits, regular splits and extra-dark. I like the regular and the cheese splits best, and even the fat-free were tasty. I would probably buy the fat-free splits, but haven't seen them for a while in the stores where I usually shop. (I don't know why they call them "splits"...)
I've tried a lot of brands of pretzels over the years, from thick, hard sourdough to thin pretzel sticks, rods, nuggets, you name it. I can only describe the difference in Uniques by saying that although all mass-marketed pretzels are crunchy, these are sort of crackley-crunchy. They're UNIQUE!
