To me, pretzels are the ultimate snack. No matter what time of day it is, or what responsibilities crowd your schedule, they are the perfect go-to for easy snacking on a busy, or not-so-busy, day. Bringing more delicious options to the snack aisle, Pretzel Pete has expanded its line of gourmet pretzel snacks with the addition of two new gluten-free products, Gluten-Free Salted Mini Twists Pretzels and Gluten-Free Sour Cream Chive-seasoned Mini Twist Pretzels.
“The inspiration for these additions to our product line came from my daughter, Audrey, who has suffered from celiac disease since she was a young teenager,” said President and Founder Karl Brown. “Obviously, gluten-free pretzels have been around for years, but Audrey never found the taste satisfying. The crispy texture and surprising flavor profile in our items proved to be major difference-makers with Audrey and our test group. Also, the Sour Cream Chive offers a sophisticated and rich flavor option normally lacking on the gluten-free shelf.”
Both of the new flavors are available in 7 oz bags, as well as 1 oz single portion packs for convenience, according to a company release. The new items are currently available on the company’s website, as well as on Amazon and in other select retailers.
Like the entirety of Pretzel Pete’s line, the new offerings are produced using local ingredients, are peanut- and sesame-free, and contain no artificial flavors or flavor enhancers.
