Reflecting today on 12/31/19 on the first year in 2005 coming to the famed Pennsylvania farm show to set up a hemp booth. 

  • You can't build a business with out selling a product and the Pennsylvania farm show provided me the opportunity to introduce to a world wide audience our Lancaster County Soft Pretzel enriched with Hemp Flour, Hemp Seed & Hemp Oil.
  • The Staff starting with Maintanence & Mac's department has been the most helpful group including the security guards - we've never had an issue there.
  • We've seen over a milllion people, 100,000 a year have to have walked by the booth over the 15 years that it's been set up.
  • Some people come to our booth first when they arrive - we feel honored.
  • It's been a great way to get direct feed back from customers and create wholesale business relationships - that store owner can see how well folks like the produds in our booth.
  • It's helped shape our marketing direction. 

BELOW ARE A FEW NOTES FROM PREVIOUS YEARS - I loved capturing videos - customer testimonials - awakenings when foliks finally understood that hemp made sense and thus here we are going into 2020 full steam a head.


Right after the holidays we are rocking into the annual Pennsylvania Farm Show - join us, sample our Hempzels, Mustard & more.

Recipes Hempzels™

Hemp + Pretzels = Hempzels(c)!

Working to free the hemp seed since 1997


Retail direct through our website or wholesale / distribution direct. Hemp pretzels, hemp mustard, hemp seed, hemp nut butter, hemp granola bars, through Pennsylvania bakeries, we are adding value to trdtional product lines - we call it, Hempzelization - to became aware of hemp and specifically "Hempzels(tm)". 2015 is our year, starting out with a product that we've been offering at events and to select restaurants in bulk. Now today we have our new 8 pack swirl bag ready for the frozen food aisle of our local & regional stores staring in 2016.  Launched at the annual Pennsylvania Farm Show - our 13th year. Now we are on the verge of growing hemp in Pennsylvania, 2017 join us at events being posted.  Historically the company in the beginning......

Sunday99In 1997 a few local guys (Ralph RIP, Mark T,  Don ..) as "No Problem, Inc."  were selling hand painted hemp fabrics, working with local seamstresses to create custom hemp outfits, they happened upon hempseed and after using some hemp seed meal to bake a pretzel in Don's house) they found an old bakery in Hanover, Pennsylvania who helped develop a single line of Sourdough Hard Hemp Pretzels. They did one run of nuggets with one of the largest pretzel companies in the US - Anderson Pretzels but the seed meal wasn't the right formulation. 

It all changed with the formulation thanks to Richard Rose & his new "HempNut" that he introduced us to via Germany at the Hemp Industries Association conference in 1997?  In 1999 Shawn House purchased the assets of No Problem, Inc. took over and expanded the relationship with other Pennsylvania Preferred Bakeries & Packaging Facilities. Unfortunately from 2000-2004 the Government through agencies decided to create havoc in the new industry by indirectly outlawing hemp in foods..(see Just Say Know Campaign)

We've been putting a new twist on some old favorites over the years. First off at Hempzels - It's "About the Seed - not the weed ™ Every day is Hemp History Day - Just Say Know Campaign. Education about hemp has sometimes overshadowed the products but the deeper message is contracting with local and regional farmers for hemp seed, hemp flour and hemp oil.

What is made by PA Preferred Bakeries - 

  • Hemp Soft Pretzel Cosmic Swirl (TM) - January 2015 the retail 8 pack swirl release. We are looking for small regional cold service distribution - east coast first.
