Sweet innovator Pecan Deluxe has launched new pretzel pieces, which come in a selection of coated and uncoated options suited for different food applications.

The new crushed pretzel range consists of three variants, regular uncoated, milk chocolate coated, and barrier coated with cocoa butter – all of which are nut and sesame free.

These latter options are perfectly suited for adding to foods where moisture is present, with the coating adding a layer of protection to maintain that characteristic crunchy pretzel texture.  The individual pieces measure around 4 to 6mm for the uncoated and cocoa butter coated options, and the chocolate coated pieces range up to approximately 10mm.

Hannah White, Pecan Deluxe Business Development Manager said: “We’re excited to share these new products with both existing and new customers and we can’t wait to see all the different ways they plan to use them.  We’ve tested them in ice cream, layered desserts, breakfast cereal and yoghurt, and on cheesecake, doughnuts and frosted muffins & honestly, we haven’t found anything yet that they don’t work with!”

All Pecan Deluxe products are made using natural colours and flavourings in strict allergen controlled, BRC AA Grade facilities. The company is constantly innovating to develop new flavours and textures and can create bespoke products tailor-made to customers’ requirements.
