Simple carbs studded with salt? Pretzels aren’t the healthiest of snacks, even though they’re pretty low in salt and calories.

They’re not even redeemable when you compare them to your traditional “bad” snacks, like potato chips.

“In a side-by-side comparison, 1 ounce of pretzels raised blood sugar higher than 1 ounce of potato chips,” David Grotto, dietician and author of The Best Things You Can Eat, told WebMD.
