REVIEW: Snyder’s of Hanover Snyderfest Beer Cheese Pretzel Pieces

What is it?

While certain corners of the internet were campaigning to “Release the Snyder Cut,” I was yelling at anyone who would listen to “Release the Snyder Pieces!”

Well, it appears someone at Snyder’s of Hanover heard my cry because it has dropped a new Beer Cheese flavor just in time to celebrate Oktoberfest.

Thank you, and you’re welcome.

How is it?

I’ve always been a fan of Snyder’s Pieces because there aren’t many flavored pretzels on the market. I used to snack on the brand’s wide array of flavors all the time, but that was before I lost my dental insurance and got extremely paranoid about chomping down on rock hard pretzel pieces.

It’d been a while since I’d carefully indulged, so when I heard about these, I figured it’d been long enough and decided to put my molars back at risk.

Guess what? They’re good. Obviously. Do I really need to sell you on cheese-flavored sourdough pretzel pieces?

The flavor here is basically cheddar with the hint of a sweet lager.

I was afraid these would be a bright orange, generic “cheese” tasting mess, but the flavor is more along the lines of a soft white cheddar. It lets the pretzel pieces breathe, making for a balanced flavor trio of cheese, “beer,” and the bready pretzel itself.

Anything else you need to know?

I find that the beer gets lost in some so-called “beer cheese” dips, so I was excited by how much it shined through. It made for a unique flavor blend you don’t often get in the snack aisle.

Also, I could be wrong, but the pieces seemed softer and not quite as treacherous as I remember. It’s also possible I was enjoying them so much that I stopped caring about my chompers.


I think I kinda loved these, but I should warn you, they’re ridiculously salty. I mean, it’s a cheese-flavored pretzel, so that’s to be expected, right?

I’m not encouraging anyone to drink, but a nice Oktoberfest brew would counteract the salt pretty well. Just have one though, and be safe.

  1. I wanted to try these, as soon as I saw them in the “Spotted” section…and I now want to exponentially more!

  2. These are really good, if you have a Meijer store in your area you can get them for 2 for 6 or mix and match favorites of the peices … I’d rather these at 260mg sodium then a whopping 500mg sodium which is in popdaddy popcorn’s beer cheese pretzels sticks lol!

  3. There goes the new diet. There’s no way I’m not trying these if I see them. You lose again self control.

  4. I am obsessed with these. They are my absolute favorite. I’ve bought several bags in case they get discontinued. But I go through them and have to do it all over again. ?

    Buy them & love them!

    1. That’s awesome to hear. Can’t wait to find them at my local Wegmans. Was tempted to even go there tonight, but it’s not super close to where I live.

  5. I hope you do not stop making these. I love them and will buy 4 bags at a time when I can find them. Please please please keep making these. Signed, a St. Louis Fan
