Snack Series: Ener-G Wylde Pretzels

Snacks without wheat, eggs, soy, nuts, and milk can be really difficult to find. That’s why I am always on the lookout for easy on-the-go snacks that can be thrown in a lunch box, backpack, or handbag. So I thought we should start the month off with the first of a series of posts on allergen-free snacks.

Ener-G Foods makes a terrific pretzel that meets the bill. Wylde Pretzelsare wheat-free, milk-free, egg-free, soy-free, and nut-free. Instead of a traditional form, these pretzels are formed in small rings, which make them very suitable for small hands. They have a nice crispy crunch to them, and make a very satisfying snack. They are available in an 8oz, 4oz, and a new 1oz. single serving size (the one pictured here).

I tried the plain version, but they also come in sesame and poppy seed flavors. If you are allergic to corn, sesame, or poppy seed, you will want to avoid these.

When you buy these make sure you look for the Wylde pretzels and not one of the pretzel-shaped varieties that are labeled wheat-free, as these do contain soy flour.

If you have a suggestion for an allergen-free snack that I should try, please e-mail me at multifoodallergies at gmail dot com or leave a comment here.
