Warm from the oven they were tasty. They got hard very quickly however (within an hour) The rolls were not a good idea, and they went to the wildlife. Next time I will try one of the many recipes online. I did find the idea of 2 cups of water with 3 Tablespoons of baking soda dissolved into it as the reason that pretzels brown the way they do. Each pretzel was fully dipped in this mixture.
