Pretz (プリッツ, purittsu) is a Japanese snack made by Ezaki Glico. It is stick-shaped and similar in texture to a pretzel (hence the name), but unlike the other popular Japanese stick-shaped snack food, Pocky, Pretz is rarely sweet. Popular flavors include salad, roast, tomato, honey mustard, corn, pizza, and butter. Special flavours can be found in other countries such as larb in Thailand, pineapple in Hawaii and maple in Canada. Chocolate flavoured is also found in local oriental markets.
