Snyder’s Pretzels–Snack Sized


100 Calorie Packs

Over the years, we have watched more and more snacks come gluten free.  A few years ago, we started seeing brands like Glutino offer gluten free pretzels.  Of course the next logical step for the gf brands was to sell pretzels in different flavors like chocolate covered.  Then we saw the national brands like Snyder’s of Hanover.  Then the national brands began selling their gf pretzels in flavors.  So then, it makes sense to begin seeing small snack packs being sold in a large bag.  We recently found gluten free 100 Calorie Packs of gf pretzels selling at Wal*Mart.  You buy a large bag, and receive 8 8-oz bags of pretzel sticks, at 100 calories per bag.  Snyder’s put out a nice press release here: http://www.snydersofhanover.com/2012-08-02-16-45-34/43-snyder%E2%80%99s-of-hanover%C2%AE-adds-100-calorie-packs-to-its-gluten-free-pretzel-offerings.html.

While this does not really change too much, as we could always put pretzels from the larger bag in baggies for lunches and travel, it does indicate that people are buying these, and obviously in large numbers if Snyder’s wants to release new products.  Good news for Celiacs everywhere!
