Snyder’s of Hanover Gluten-Free Pretzel Review

I hit the jackpot yesterday on a trip to my local Whole Foods Market; I found the new Snyder’s Of Hanover Gluten-Free Pretzels!

I wasn’t expecting to find them at Whole Foods and would have missed them altogether, had I not gone down the chip aisle (my local WFM has a dedicated Gluten-Free pseudo-aisle {it’s really more of a rack}, which can make one think that is all they carry in the gluten-free department, but they have GF products all throughout the store too).  So if you live in Albuquerque, and shop the Whole Foods on Wyoming and Academy; the Snyder’s of Hanover GF Pretzels are in the chip aisle, on the bottom row, next to the regular pretzels! 😉

I could hardly wait to get home and try them.  Once I tore into the bag, I just took in the aroma of the butter flavored topping (don’t worry, they are dairy-free and casein-free too!), that I remember from long ago.   After my first bite, I noticed that they are really crunchy, more so than Glutino’s GF pretzels.  The only other taste difference I could really pick up on, is the fact that the Snyder’s GF pretzels have a more pronounced butter flavoring.

When Sam got home, I showed him the bag and his eyes grew about an inch.  He was so in awe of the “gluten” looking bag, that I had to remind him to try them, LOL!  Needless to say, he absolutely loved them.

The Synder’s Of Hanover Gluten-free Pretzels are GFCO certified, which means they are tested and certified to contain less than 10-ppm of gluten (5-ppm gliadin).  The Gluten Free Certification Organization (GFCO) is a program of the Gluten Intolerance Group (GIG).

    Thank you for such a wonderful and great review for the rest of us out there. I was so curious if anyone had tried them!

  2. Lucky you! I've been waiting for them to come out. My hubbie is a pretzel monster. I've not seen them anywhere around here yet.

  3. I have been eagerly waiting for their appearance since I first read about them on the blogs. Now I want them more.

  4. I was getting very excited but I can't have corn either. I believe my pretzel days are over.

  5. Woo-hoo! I am heading over to Whole Foods this afternoon! Thanks for letting us know exactly where they are!! Any otehr new goodies over there?

    I love it that Sam liked the gluten-looking bag. Too funny, but you're/he's right – the packaging looks like 'normal' versus 'health food' store! So important for a young man his age – and us adult ssometimes too!

    We need to get together soon!

    • Renee: I found the Canyon Bakehouse Hamburger Buns. We haven't tried them yet (this weekend), but they are there. I also found a bunch of kid snacks that I am working on reviews as we speak.

      Yes, let's definitely get together soon! I am *hoping* to make it to the GIG potluck this month. 😀

  6. I LOVE THEM TOO!!!!!

  7. It's great to see more and more gluten free products rolling out.

    However, some of the ingredients are a bit "unhealthy" and may still be classified as "junk food".

    Buyer Beware!

  8. YUMMY!! I miss pretzels! These look delicious. I'll have to keep my eye out but Florida seems to be that very behind on getting new stuff like this.

  9. Bought two bags at our WF on saturday… one is pretty much already gone! They are so good my dad tried them loved them; my husband; everyone… i am sooooooooooooo happy about these!

  10. I just bought these and LOVE them!! I plan to blog about them soon…soooooo good. Thanks for posting this 🙂

  11. I am just outside of Philadelphia and the owner of the best, local, GF and Dairy Free Bakery (Main Line Baking, if you are ever in Wynnewood) told me about Snyder's. I always have a bag of the Glutino twists or sticks in my house and panic when my local Whole Foods runs out of them. I am a pretzelholic. Glutino's twists are really good, but they are still NOT pretzels. Not really.

    I didn't see the Snyder's at any of my local Whole Foods stores (there are several around here) so I went on line and ordered a case (without a taste test) from Snyder's, directly.

    $42 with shipping for a case of 12, 8 oz bags ( 50 cents more per bag than you pay in New Mexico) but WORTH IT.

    These are REAL pretzels.


    Now the quest for a pizza crust that doesn't taste and feel like soggy cardboard.


    Love your site!!


    • For pizza crust try French Meadow Bakery crusts – our local pizza restaurant uses them and they are great. I have a hard time finding them in stores and they no longer sell via their website (to concentrate on wholesale distribution). Also Udi's has a decent one too! I do not need to eat GF but a handful of my family does – I tried both and I prefer the French Meadow Bakery but both are better than others I have tried!

  12. I've had a reaction after two different bags. They're super good, but I won't be eating them anymore.

  13. The best gluten free pretzel ever. They are crunchy, tasty and inexpensive for a large bag. Wonder where I could buy them wholesale.

  14. I found them by accident at NobHill/Raley Food stores. Love them.

  15. KatyJane says

    I picked up a bag of these the other day and they taste great, but they are really hard, like break your teeth hard… after reading all the reviews online I'm thinking my bag might be stale. Anyone else think they are hard or is it just my bag?


  1. […] fun on this dye-free challenge!  The other day when I was at Whole Foods (the same day I found the Snyder’s Gluten-Free Pretzels), I stumbled across Turtle Mountain’s So Delicious All Natural Kidz […]

  2. […] ones produced by Glutano and decided that the pretzels from Snyders were superior in every respect. Adventures of a Gluten Free Mom dot com, Gluten Free Works dot com and Ms Celiac Says dot com all praise this […]
