Personally, I can’t imagine not being a snacker. Seriously… don’t the non-snackers know what they’re missing?!
I’m not just a snacker, I’m a snacker’s snacker. Top in the business. I could go pro. Funny thing is, I don’t eat a lot at one sitting or swipe a lot in one passing…. but I enjoy the heck out of what I do nibble on.
I came across something exciting in Target last week – come to think of it, I always come across something exciting in Target…. like in every aisle, to be precise. This time, I happened to be in the potato chip and popcorn aisle (of course I was). A bag of Snyder’s of Hanover Gluten-Free Pretzel Sticks caught my eye. If you have to eat gluten-free, you’ll know exactly what I mean when I say the magic words, gluten-free, jump out from a mile away.
It’s like the verbal equivalent of Popeye’s spinach or Cookie Monster’s cookies.
Naturally, a bag went straight into my cart – right between a gorgeous new set of bright kitchen towels (personal obsession) and cat food (another obsession… cats, not the food).
I may or may not have sampled them before I even got out of the parking lot. The first thing I noticed was how similar they look and feel (and smell… Heavenly!) to regular pretzel sticks.
I’ve had other gluten-free pretzels and pretzel sticks that, while tasty, looked more like cookies and tasted more like hard bread. Snyder’s of Hanover has hit the nail on the head with these gluten-free pretzels. They’re excellent.
While I’m excited to have these beauties for snacking, I’m even more excited to have them for other reasons. Each holiday (and often on birthdays), I make chocolate-covered pretzels and pretzel sticks. The gluten-free varieties have never played quite as well as the regular pretzels I remember from my salty past. Since these look, feel, and taste like the real McCoy, I can’t wait to take them for a dip in chocolate and white chocolate.
I also look forward to using them in Chex Mix for the holidays, I’m also over the moon excited about an old favorite, Strawberry Pretzel Salad. Again, other gluten-free pretzels on the market just don’t lend themselves to this type of dish. Snyder’s of Hanover’s Gluten-Free Pretzel Sticks will be perfect and I CANNOT wait to make this favorite from the past a favorite of the present again.
Check your favorite store for a bag – you’re going to love them as much as I do. They’re also available on Amazon (Amazon link) – easiest way to shop known to man or womankind!
