'Pretz' pretzel sticks - Gyoza

Pretz from Glico! My fave savory snack!This is a special flavor from Pretz's 2010 summer special range from Eastern Japan; Gyoza (fried dumplings):
I love gyoza! My mum and I often boil or fry gyoza for lunch, sometimes I have them by themselves, and at other times they're accompanied with dipping sauce. Normally they are dipped in sauce and eaten, and in this instance, when I tasted these pretzel sticks, I realized they had used a spicy sauce as a reference for the flavor. The whole intent of this flavor was to give the consumer the full flavor of fried gyoza already dipped in spicy sauce. I didn't quite like the spicy seasoning for the sticks, because I don't like spicy foods, so that sort of put me off a bit. Whenever I eat gyoza accompanied with dipping sauce, I make the sauce myself using a mixture of soyu (soy sauce), vinegar (white or apple cider) & finely crushed ginger...which isn't spicy, but rather a salty & sour sauce with a refreshing taste of ginger. So I actually didn't expect this to be spicy at all, I was rather surprised...and a bit disappointed. I guess the Japanese love their spicy sauce more, to each their own I suppose.
Overall, it's not a bad flavor, I still quite enjoyed it...although I wasn't very happy with the spicy seasonings, but it wasn't terribly spicy either.

Although the 'Kit Kat' confection originates in England & is produced worldwide by Nestlé (and Hershey in the US only), most of the KK bars I review about are Japanese flavours from Nestlé Japan.
