Mild Salad Pretz is a milder and smaller version of the standard Salad Pretz aimed at children. Indeed, its packaging features Gachapin, a green bucktoothed dinosaur whose the popular Japanese children’s television program Hirake! Ponkikki. His red Yeti friend Mukku appeared on the Honey Roast Pretz.
The back of the box is a panel of comics featuring Gachapin and Mukku on a mountain.
Compared to standard Salad Pretz, these Mild Salad Pretz are shorter and lighter in colour with more a muted seasoning that’s less generous and without the slight sweetness or vinegar notes that identified the standard Salad Pretz as croutons in a salad. The flavour of the biscuit is much more pronounced, leaving a pleasant buttery aftertaste. I’d guess that the mildness of the seasoning in these Mild Salad Pretz targets the more delicate taste buds of children as I find the flavour bland compared to the flavoursome standard Salad Pretz.
This box of Mild Salad Pretz by Glico Japan contained 1 bag of ~20 pieces. It was produced in Japan and purchased in Okayama, Japan in 2015.
