Certified gluten-free by the Gluten-Free Certification Organization
HANOVER, PA — Based on the success of its two gluten-free pretzel products (8-oz gluten-free mini pretzels and 8-oz gluten-free pretzel sticks), Snyder’s of Hanover® has launched a third option for consumers who must, or choose, to eat gluten-free foods: an 8-pack of 100-calorie gluten-free pretzel sticks.
Like all of the Snyder’s of Hanover® gluten-free pretzel offerings, the new pretzels have been certified gluten-free by the Gluten-Free Certification Organization. The varieties are also dairy free, casein free and egg free. In addition to being a great-tasting, low-fat snack, Snyder’s of Hanover® gluten-free pretzel sticks have on average 75 percent less fat than the leading brand of gluten-free pretzels (1.5 grams as compared to 6 grams for the leading brand).
“We’re proud to bake a gluten-free snack that won’t leave consumers sacrificing flavor or the crunchy taste they crave,” said Bryan Dobson, Director of Marketing at Snyder’s-Lance. “Gluten-Free 100 calorie pretzels are convenient for on-the-go snacks and lunch packs.”
The new 8-pack of 100-calorie Snyder’s of Hanover® Gluten-Free Pretzel Sticks retails around $4.99. The 8-oz bags of Snyder’s of Hanover® Gluten-Free Minis or Gluten-Free Pretzel Sticks retail around $3.49.
