I think it all comes down to how many you have. They are a reasonable treat for the calories but you are right about the salt they have a high sodium content so that is something to take into consideration.

If a handful is about 10 then that is probably OK for a snack. Nutritionally they are very high in sodium, high in carbs, some protein, low fat and very little sugar. For those who are interested they seem to come in at around 150-190 cals for about 10 of them.

Hope this helps.

i love pretzels, but since I have been cutting down my salt in take I find them really really salty.
They are nice for a small snack every now and then though...

Yep fine for a snack but not a meal! I find I have about 6 of the mini ones if I feel like something to munch on and the cals are only small and that amount of salt is ok for me. I dont add salt to my food so every now and then a few pretzels wont hurt. Its not something I tend to have in the cupboard very often anyway.

Try the salt free pretzels, they are very good with not all the extra sodium.... I hope they have them in australia, we have them here in the usa.
