Yes, I just called them and they confirmed that their pretzels are safe for my son with PA/TNA. The phone number is 800-233-7125 x 1410 and the website is [url="http://www.snydersofhanover.com"]www.snydersofhanover.com[/url] if anyone else is interested.

Thanks for posting the contact info. I plan to call them; are you only referring to their pretzels? Did they say that all their products/chips are safe too?

The chocolate dipped pretzels have a "may contain peanut" warning. I did email the company from the link on the website, and they said the company that does the chocolate dipping also dips peanuts.

I contacted Snyders of Hanover today to ask again and inquire about their new line called "eatsmart" Veggie crisps. They informed me the company does not use peanuts or tree nuts and the only item I plan to stay away from is the Choc. and White Fudge dips (choc dipped pretzels) since they send the pretzels to be dipped elsewhere in a facility that is not nut free.
I am so happy they are a nut free company! Check out their website to see the new safe products: [url="http://www.snydersofhanover.com"]www.snydersofhanover.com[/url]
When I called I spoke with Betsy:

I just purchased Snyders mini pretzel bags for Halloween! I think this is perfect for Halloween and plan on contacting them to check again on PA and also suggest they make these smaller individual sized mini bags available year round... one more item to add to the lunch box!

Just wondering if anyone knows if they are still nut free - I looked at their website seems to me that they make several pb pretzels and other products that look to me as if they could easily cross contaminate the plain pretzels.

toomanynuts: read my post above and contact them if you still have concerns. Remember, we all have different comfort levels, but double check to be sure they are still nut free.
We use them all the time.

We do not use Snyder's.
All of them in my area that I've seen have a peanut warning on them.

i do not use them either. i called twice though and the peanut butter is in another room. now companies are putting that message on because they want to let severely sensitive people know that there are nuts in the plant. my daughter is not nut allergic and i dont want her having may contains but i think this would be ok. my son doesnt like pretzels so he wouldnt eat them, he is the one with the allergy. my friends nut allergic son eats them everytime he goes there.

I spoke to them when they first started making the PB sandwhich. The manager guy described that the pretzels are made in one very large room. Then the pretzels used for the pretzel sandwiches go up a conveyer belt through an opening into the room where the PB is processed. So, it's not exactly in a completely separate area of the plant. We just buy Utz instead!

I also called and was told that the peanuts were in a separate room. How can they warn us on the label and then when we call they basically tell us to ignore the warning?
I now buy rolled gold pretzils.

We used to buy Snyder's a couple years ago until they came out with the peanut butter pretzel. I was a nervous wreck when I went to grab our 'usual bag of pretzels' and saw the warning.
We now buy Rold Gold(3 years and counting) and haven't had any problems.

Good morning,
I went back and forth on this issue for a while when we were new to the food allergies. What I believe works best is to have the same food for everyone at all times. Our house is completely peanut/tree nut/sesame/soy free. This creates a SAFE and relaxing environment for everyone. I've always had this fear that if for some reason, I was not here (emergency, etc.) my children might be fed the wrong food by accident therefore, all the food in our house is safe. Plus, the allergic child will not feel left out or underpriviledged. We've had many crying sessions because my daughter felt left out when we gather and eat at the in-laws.
When we get together with friends, we always provide the food so all the kids eat the same snacks/meal. That way all of the moms/caretakers can relax and just enjoy each other without having to be on edge in case of a "mix up" with snack. Some moms contribute by buying certain safe brands or just giving $ towards the meal.
I hope this helps, I didn't mean to go on and on.
