Snyders Pretzel wands

jrabbit2727 Jul 14, 2009 08:32 AM

SUCH a salt craving I have! I used to be able to get Snyders pretzel wands in Toronto and now I can't seem to find them anywhere. They were long and thick...like a bread stick. And fantastic!!!

Does anyone know where I can find them....or if anyone makes something similar?

    Good news, jrabbit2727: Snyder's of Hanover pretzel rods are available at Highland Farms, on the Snyder's rack at the end of the chip aisle (at the Dufferin/Steeles location).

    They also carry the Dutch-style pretzels I was looking for -- not Snyder's brand, but another Pennsylvania Deutsch brand -- "Jake Baked" by Todd's Snax; good enough for me. Thanks again, Juno.

      In the same vein, I haven't been able to find thick Dutch-style pretzels anywhere. I used to be able to find Snyder's, Anderson and Rokeach brands. Now, nothing. Snyder's still makes them, though: http://www.snydersofhanover.com/Produ...

        Yes, but do you notice that they don't list Canada a country for a store finder. I guess they stopped shipping them here....but why? Surely there must be a similar type product sold in Canada.

          It has been a month since I was there last, but I've been getting packages of thick, Dutch-style pretzels by Snyder's - not wand-shaped, unfortunately, but I suspect they're the very same Snyder's recipe as the wand-sized pretzels - at Highland Farms on north Dufferin Street (south of Steeles). Very tasty and satisfying if you're a thick pretzel buff. Like the posters above, I can't abide the thin pretzels - flimsy, tasteless, nothing to get your teeth into. Before setting off for Highland Farms, though, I'd check to make sure they're still available - the place has been turning over product selection quite a bit lately.

            Thanks for the tip, juno. I haven't been to HIghland Farms in awhile; time for a visit.
