Snyder's of Hanover plays its own version of Twister ... and it wins. The company, founded in 1909, is the nation's largest pretzel maker (surpassing even snack-making behemoth Frito-Lay). Along with pretzels of all shapes and sizes, Snyder's produces potato chips, tortilla chips, and the EatSmart brand of low-fat snack foods, as well as organic snacking options. The company partners with Hershey to make dark-chocolate-covered pretzels called Dips. Snyder's snacks are sold through supermarkets, drugstores, and mass merchandisers throughout the US. The company is owned by Snyder's-Lance, formed in 2010 by its merger with Southern snack food giant Lance.
