Ok so I had one box of cinnamon pretzels about 4-6 weeks ago and thought they were pretty decent,was planning to order more right now... but now I am not sure if I had the "old" ones or the "new" ones with the drama.... so can someone explain what changed? Thanks..

I hear the pretzels changed somehow, but I've scoured the forums high and low and cannot find anything about them. It's like they dont exist, simply vanished from existance..

(You'll know the new ones, they are in colored boxes, not the white unmarked ones)..

The shape changed - they're wider and kind of hollow now. And shorter. Look like small bread sticks. Most think the flavor changed..

If the ones you got previously came in a white cardboard box - they were the old ones. The new ones come in a thinner box with pictures of the pretzels on the front...

Comment #2

The new box is huge - it's almost twice the size of the old one. It's also a greenish color..

If the pretzels looked like twigs, they were the old ones. If they looked like baby breadsticks, then you had the new ones...

I love the new HM Pretzels!!!!! The breadstick shape ones.....

Comment #4

The old ones had spices sprinkled all over them that got on your fingers and was in the bottom of the bag (think: doritos) and the new ones are more like glazed with the spices (think: honey wheat pretzels). The old ones were long and very very thin like pretzel sticks but very hard when you bite into them, the new ones are wider and shorter more like toasted bread stick nubs that you'd find in party mix. And the old box was plain white while the new box is green with the product on it, more like typical Medifast product boxes. That's my story and I'm stickin to it lol..

PS I liked the old ones and I like the new ones too lol. Apparently i've stopped being picky about my Medifast foods lol...

We just got our shipment (hubby is doing MF, too) with 9 boxes of new, "improved" pretzels...and today, we took back every one. (with the exception of the opened tested ones.

The new are a terrible disappointment. I was so excited when I saw that the Medifast store had 19 boxes of the old ones left, we bought them all. Yup. Every one of the 19 boxes. Now, I just have to ration them out.

There is a thread on the Medifast forum that just addresses the pretzels. The general consensus is that Medifast made a huge mistake by trying to "fix" what wasn't broken...

Comment #6

Nowhere near consensus - I like the new ones better. No pistol-shot chewing sounds, no moldy taste...

Comment #7

Yes, typically people speak up more about negatives. I have a friend who works for Amazon in Customer Service. We talked about the pretzel thing. She said they did a lot of psycho babble stuff and the one thing that is clear is that the haters (of a product) are more outspoken than the lovers (of a product)...

Comment #8

Hence why they were changed in the first place...

Comment #9

I just tasted the new pretzel and I dislike them very much. I liked the old ones alot hence I ordered 2 boxes. How shocked I was when I saw & tasted the new version. Unfortunatly we don't have a Medifast store here to return them to so I'm stuck with them...

Comment #10

I 'd trade ya my first born for a case of those pretzels !..

Comment #11

Thanks for the info, I had the old ones apparently - very hard and crunchy, LOUD, and lots of messy cinnamon..... and I thought they were pretty decent, almost good... darn it.... guess I will order 1 box of the new on my next order to see if I like them?..
