Snyder's of Hanover Gluten Free Pretzels

I will admit it here - I have never been a huge fan of pretzels. My friend Kent buys the large barrel of pretzels from Costco and eats them constantly. I never understood it. Don't get me wrong, I L-O-V-E my salty snacks but my favorite are traditional potato chips.

So, after going gluten free a few years ago I didn't give pretzels too much thought. I didn't care before so why should I care now? I did eventually try Glutino's gluten free pretzels but thought they had a funny after-taste and didn't even finish the bag.

Recently while shopping at my local grocery store I spied Snyder's of Hanover's gluten free pretzels. Curiosity got the best of me and I purchased a bag. I was having a friend over to watch a basketball play-off game and thought these would make for a good game time snack.

Little did I know that these pretzels would be such a hit! We ate and ate and ate. I later learned that my friend liked them so much that she went out and bought some to eat at work that week -- and she is NOT gluten free! She just liked them that much.

I have since bought another bag and a different friend bought some to use in a recipe for a pie crust that called for pretzels so I could eat the pie. Next time I travel I think I will be bringing a bag of these with me as an airplane snack. And they certainly will appear at my next sports viewing function too!
