Snyder's of Hanover Debuts New Beer-Flavored Pretzels

The new limited edition pretzels are available now nationwide.

It's August and that means fall snacking season is upon us. But while the fall snack season is usually a season filled with the comforting flavors of all things pumpkin spice, and maple, and apple, there are some other tasty treats coming to store shelves this year — especially when it comes to pretzels. Snyder's of Hanover recently announced the launch of their new Beer Flavored Oktoberfest Rings, a new pretzel offering that combines the perfect pairing of beer and pretzels into one tasty treat.

According to the brand, the pretzels are infused with beer flavor and subtle malted barley notes "masterfully uniting with that signature Snyder's of Hanover crunch" to make a perfect, celebration snack. The pretzels are set to be a limited-edition product, available in 10 ounce bags with a suggested retail of $3.50. They are available now at retailers nationwide, including Walmart and Target.

In addition to All Dressed, Lays is bringing back some other favorite mashup chips from previous Flavor Swap collections: Lay's Cheeto Cheese, Lay's Doritos Cool Ranch, and Lay's Wavy Funyuns Onion.
