Packing school lunches can be stressful when your child has a peanut allergy. Synder’s of Hanover has made it easier for families with kids that need peanut-free lunches; Snyder’s of Hanover Pretzels are now peanut-free!
Even though most of Synder’s of Hanover’s products did not contain nuts, the company wanted to take the extra step and make all their bakeries in Hanover, Pennsylvania peanut-free facilities. Approximately 3 Million people reporting having an allergy to peanuts and tree nuts and the number of children with peanut allergies appears to have tripled between 1997 and 2008, according to Food Allergy Research and Education.
Bags of pretzels including Pretzel Minis, Pretzel Sticks, Pretzel Snaps and Pretzel Rods already have this seal on the back with the nutrition information. Remaining pretzel products will have the updated graphic by the end of the year. (Snyder’s of Hanover also makes peanut butter filled pieces, but they are manufactured in a separate facility in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania and obviously won’t have the graphic.)
To celebrate, we’re giving away one prize pack of pretzels that includes four family-size bags of Snyder’s pretzels and three boxes of 100-calorie packs, which are great for packing in school lunches. Please see the rafflecopter below for information on how to enter for a chance to win.
We were given pretzels for review and my boys went through a snack bag each and asked for more. I’ll admit that I had a couple, too, and they were as delicious as always. The recipe is the same and the quality just as good, but the facility went peanut-free to avoid cross-contamination. We will be using all of the 100-calorie bags in school lunches this year and I’m going to make some kind of pretzel granola snack out of the big bag. If you’d like to enter to win a pretzel prize pack, please see the rafflecopter below for details.
