REVIEW: Snyder’s of Hanover – Hot Buffalo Wing Pretzel Pieces

Rating: ©©©© chips  (lip-smacking)

Snyder's of Hanover Gluten Free - Hot Buffalo Wing Pretzel Sticks“America’s Pretzel Bakery”  Believe it or not, but we’ve never noticed those words printed at the top of every Snyder’s of Hanover bag.  The declaration is quite bold, but it does have a very nice ring to it, and a certain level of truth to it!

We’ve said it many times before, and we’ll say it again, Snyder’s of Hanover are the masters of pretzel snacks.  Their vast breadth of varieties and flavors of pretzel snacks certainly trumps any other brand out there.  A true conversation, or debate, regarding hard pretzel snacks would not be complete without including Snyder’s of Hanover.

With that being said, may we present to you Snyder’s New Gluten Free Pretzel Sticks!! What?!?  Gluten free pretzels.  Are we reading this correctly?  Are these pretzels completely devoid of gluten, or is Snyder’s simply telling us that the gluten that is in these pretzels is free?! We’re guessing that it is the latter, and that somehow, someway, Snyder’s has been able to create pretzels without traditional flour.  So, how did they do?

Low and behold, they have definitely done a superb job creating an extra crunchy alternative to the typical gluten-ful pretzel genre.  The pretzel sticks do the trick. Light and airy, yet still very crunchy and a bit dry and bread-y.  As peculiar sounding as it is, the recipe of corn starch, potato starch and tapioca starch, unite to form a winning pretzel combination.

Flavor wise, we are fairly confident that Snyder’s is simply re-using their Hot Buffalo Wing seasoning from their pretzel pieces.  The recipe is very vinegary with a healthy kick of cayenne.  Plain and simple, they remind us of buffalo wings, minus the rich, fatty, delicious butter that also accompanies real hot wings.

Gluten intolerant snackers, behold a new and tasty addition to the ever growing gluten free market!  Bravo Snyder’s!

As always, these are our thoughts, we would love to hear what you think.  Agree or disagree, let us know.
