A box of six retails for $4.79 at my local supermarket, but it's not uncommon to find them on sale for $2 to $3.
I didn't get a real taste for the pretzel in these. To be sure, they added a lot of crunch, but it was fairly indistinguishable from, say, the crispy rice of a Nestle Crunch bar. Basically, crunch without much flavor. They weren't salted pretzel bits, which might have provided a nice interchange with the caramel-flavored ice cream. I was hoping for more pretzel flavor.
The chocolaty coating was pretty standard and very milk chocolaty, but not particularly rich.
The ice cream had a decent if artificial caramel flavor, though it lacked that caramel buttery-ness. I found it rather generic, but still good.
In the end, it's not much of a notable variation from the standard chocolate-covered vanilla ice cream bar.
