Snyder's of Hanover® Announces this Season's Chocolate Pretzel Lineup

HANOVER, PA — Two of America's favorite brands, Snyder's of Hanover pretzels and Hershey's Chocolate, are working together again this year on a decade-old tradition to develop the ultimate sweet and salty combination: chocolate covered pretzels. Both native to Pennsylvania, Snyder's of Hanover and Hershey's chocolate covered pretzels offer a sweet and salty combination sure to satisfy sweet tooth and salty snack cravings, alike.
This season's chocolate covered pretzel varieties feature Snyder's of Hanover pretzels smothered in creamy, sweet Hershey's Chocolate. Available for a limited time beginning in October, Snyder's of Hanover's is offering five chocolate pretzel varieties: Hershey's Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Pretzel Sandwiches, Hershey's Special Dark Chocolate Covered York Peppermint Pretzel Sandwiches, Hershey's Special Dark Chocolate Covered Pretzel Dips, Hershey's White Crème Covered Pretzel Dips and Hershey's Milk Chocolate Covered Pretzel Dips.
The chocolate covered pretzels retail for around $3.49 for a 5- to 6-ounce bag and contain 0 grams trans-fat. Between the chocolate-covered pretzel sandwiches and the chocolate-dipped pretzel minis, milk, white and dark chocolate lovers can have their pretzels and eat them, too.
"We've combined two of America's favorite foods – pretzels and chocolate – for a delectable pairing of sweet and salty," said Marketing Manager for Snyder's of Hanover, Bob Gould. "The annual fall release of our chocolate-covered pretzels and pretzel sandwiches has become a well-loved tradition for the Snyder's of Hanover family. We wait all year for the opportunity to release a new batch of our favorite chocolate pretzels to consumers. I think they wait all year for it, too."
