Snyder's of Hanover Oktoberfest Pretzels review...

This is a new limited time item I found at a local grocery store.

The box has 12 large pretzels in it.

The box says each pretzel was given an extra time to rise before baking.

Sure did have that brown pretzel color.

The taste was really good.

Nice and crunchy on the outside, softer more airy texture on the inside.

I give this product a big thumbs up..

i'll have to look for these as we'll be travelling staying near the snyder's factory in a few weeks. they have factory tours, which are as exciting as watching grass grow, but you get to eat super fresh pretzels.

I crave salty snacks. Bavarian size sometimes, stick sized other times.
I always buy pretzels with the highest salt content.

Mr. Salty. Remember those pretzels? Mr. Coronary Stroke Pretzels.

I did one of those pretzel factory tours years ago. I want to say it was Anderson's Pretzels. There are 3 things I vividly remember. First, was the smell of the pretzels baking in the factory. Second, was watching the guy load the dough into the machine that then shaped the pretzels. The size of the dough ball he was transferring was like the size of a beach ball fully inflated. Being so large, and I assume heavy, although he was wearing gloves, the majority of the dough was resting on his forearms. Yes he was wearing short sleeve shirts ( cause the factory was hot), the the dough was resting directly on his sweaty skin. And finally, the last thing I remember was at the end of the tour, they had all the different pretzel bag brands that they provided pretzels for hanging on the wall. Basically, it was many of the no name brands, or the store brands ( like shoprite ...). So I thought it was kinda funny that I could get the shoprite brand pretzels ( which I liked the most) for 1/3 the price of the name brand, and they were literally the same exact pretzel made at the same factory. Sure its something I knew was going on, but actually seeing the other store brands right there in the factory was kinda strange to me .

( Just as a note here, I visit many factories so although I think it was Anderson, it could have been Herr's or even another brand. I just know it was in Pennsylvania a few hours west of Philly).

I am going shopping in a week or so. Will definitely look for them. My kids thought pretzel sticks were the coolest thing. They could practice smoking a cigar. Even the girls. Fortunately none of them ever took up the habit. And only one smokes a pipe occasionally, but not cigarettes.

It's taken me years to get the images out of my head. But trust me, the thoughts of hairs and psoriasis always crossed my mind . Im just glad Ive never knowingly had the pleasure of experiencing such a find.
