Corporate history[edit]

On July 22, 2010, it was announced that Snyder's of Hanover would be merging with Lance Inc. to create one of the largest snack food companies in the nation.[4] The merged company became Snyder's-Lance.

Snyder's Of Hanover offers a variety of pretzels and some other snack food products. The company claims that all pretzel recipes descend from Snyder's original Hanover Olde Tyme Pretzel recipe. Representative pretzel products include minis, sourdough hards, premium stick pretzels, flavored pretzel pieces, chocolate coated, and organic pretzel sticks. Snyder's also offers EatSmart Naturals, which includes veggie crisps, veggie sticks, soy crisps, cheese curls, sunflower chips, tortilla chips, salsas, and dips. It also offers peanut butter and cheddar cheese-filled pretzel sandwiches. Snyder's recently introduced a GFCO-certified gluten-free pretzel stick.
