Peanut-butter-filled Pretzel Nuggets?

pollystyrene Aug 30, 2013 10:03 PM

Has anyone seen these around? I used to get them at Whole Foods a few years ago, but can't find them there or at Stop & Shop.

      Every Costco I've been in lately (Honolulu and Kansas City area) sells a huge plastic jar of them for around $7.

        Are you looking for a particular brand? I'm not in your area, but I know Snyder's makes them and I see them in every basic grocery store chain in my area.

          Snyder's makes a pretzel sandwich with a peanut butter filling
          but that's not what pollystyrene is looking for. She wants these:
          and as far as I can see on the Snyder's website they don't make those.

          Here in the Boston area Herr's products are more likely to show up in convenience stores, and the range of products available is limited ans rather unpredictable.

            Ahhh.....I only bought them once, but now that I think about it, you are right! My mistake! :)

            Years ago I saw these somewhere but also covered with chocolate but I forget where. Anyone seen those recently?

              Just melt some and dip it.

                I bought those at TJ's Arlington within the past year. Just don't look at the calorie count/serving size...

                Trader Joe's - though I think it may be a Holiday seasonal item. They are larger nuggets than the PB pretzel nuggets they carry year round. Also, I like the fact that the latter come both in unsalted and with salt crystals on the pretzel.

                +1 on the Trader Joe's brand.

                  I just saw these at the CVS in Reading center in a bin near the check out.

                    Thanks for all the tips! I ended up finding a brand called Good Health at another Whole Foods. They're pretty stingy with the peanut butter, though, so I'll try Trader Joe's next.

                      Marty's in Newton carries pretty good peanut butter pretzels (Herr's brand, I believe) among their selection of bar snacks.

                        Sometmes what seems like stinginess with the peanut butter is actually a lack of freshness - the PB seems to dry up a bit when the pretzel nuggets get old. We like to buy big jugs full at the Ocean State Job Lot in Waltham. I've noticed more than once that a batch that are nice and fresh and well-filled when we first tap into them are mysteriously barely filled by the time we get down to the last handful or two.

                          I think you're right about that. Shaking the nugget (a phrase I don't think I've used before), I could feel the unattached peanut butter ball clanging around in there. I'll hunt for expiration dates out to the next millennium.

                          Two down, one to go. I tried the Trader Joe's, and while I liked them better than the Good Health brand (they seemed fresher), there was still a dearth of peanut butter!

                          I'll be near Marty's tomorrow so will see if they have the Herr's as Jenny remembers. I don't know why it's driving me crazy that I can't recreate my peanut-butter-pretzel-nugget experiences of yesteryear.

                            Just submitting a final report on this all-important topic. Marty's had the Herr's brand, and of the three kinds I tried, they were the best--the only ones I wanted to keep on eating. I'd still like (and I remember) some with a higher PB to pretzel ratio, but the Herr's are pretty good. Thanks for helping me scratch that itch!

                            (I didn't try the Costco ones because of the bad reviews here and elsewhere.)

                          You can buy the large jugs of these at BJ'S

                              They do, though my friend who will eat any junk food I put in front of her, and will leave a full plate before sending food to the kitchen, insisted i return them because "those are terrible."

                              I didn't mind 'em but they're not my thing so I wasn't going to eat them anyway.

                                They're not my thing either. For me, they were a bit dry tasting but, they did taste like peanut butter and pretzels.

                              the target in house brand is pretty good too

                                You can find big jugs of these at office supply stores, too, like Staples.

                                  Trader Joe's is where to get them.

                                    They are very addictive. I generally like the TJ's ones. Enjoy!!
