Has anyone seen these yet? Better yet, has anyone eaten one? Now I'm a big fan of pretzels, but I don't think I could bring myself to eat these. From the Bachman Company website:
Our 100 calorie packs are all natural, low in fat and cholesterol free. Solve your snacking puzzle with this good for you delicious pretzel. The Bachman Company has been and continues to be a proud sponsor and active supporter of Autism Speaks we are donating 5% of our proceeds from the purchase of this product to Autism Speaks.Interesting to note, is that Bachman lists their gluten-free products, and guess what? These puzzle-piece pretzels apparently are not gluten-free. Is that ironic or what? Kind of like when Rice Krispies was involved in an "Autism Awareness" campaign.
The puzzle pins (which, it seems everyone from actors to coaches wants to wear), ribbons, magnets, even toothpaste (another irony, since the toothpaste was apparently not gluten-free either, and also contained fluoride, yet another supposed--and unproven, cause of autism), and jewelry were one thing. But edible puzzle-piece pretzels? Seriously? Exactly what kind of "awareness" will come from this?
I can only imagine what will be next...
