“Just OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

We toured three factories while in Hanover--Utz's Potato Chips, Revonah Pretzels and Snyder's. Snyder's allowed you to see certain parts of their production line and seemed to be more interested at "bragging" about all the automated processing which was a turn off. I hate to see jobs lossed due to automation. This company seems to put profit before people. If we had stopped here first, we probably wouldn't have bothered going to any of the other places. Luckily, this was our last stop for the day. REVONAH PRETZELS has a fantastic tour. They still hand roll all of their pretzels, it is a small company and the entire prtezel process was explained to us.

“Nice and informative tour.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

Unlike Martin's Potato Factory Tour, this one doesn't permit visitors on the floor. As one walks down a hallway, views of what is happening can be seen through windows. It's still a great tour. It ends in the outlet store where they provide a small bag of chips. There are also a "wide variety" of chips and candies for sale.

“Interesting but kind of expensive for an outlet”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

First of all, we missed the tour but went to the factory store. The smell of pretzels was wonderful. They have a great variety, more than pretzels and chips in the store. they had bulk hard candy and donuts as well as some other lines of goods. The prices were in some cases more than retail in your local supermarket. We bought a few things but UTZ down the road was much cheaper. Loved that smell though.

“Fun and interesting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

Very informative guide and interesting to see the process and equipment. Nice factory store with large selections. The smell of the pretzels baking is great. Unfortunately, the tortilla line was down for cleaning so we weren't able to see that.

“Great variety of products”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

Always an enjoyable visit to the Factory store. We enjoyed the factory tour as well. I enjoy the Amber chips, Gluten Free pretzel sticks, bean tortilla chips, veggie sticks and sugar free rootbeer candies. My significant other enjoys their other varieties of Tortilla Chips, Buffalo pretzels, Buttermilk Ranch Pretzels, Nacho Cheese pretzels and Garlic and Herb pretzels. We recommend their delicious products and a visit to their factory store.
