  • Time to let RedLab Media guide us - we think you'll like the new look, feel and responsiveness.
  • Why did it take so long? Capital - Connections - Critics - Cajoling. 
  • So many changes hempening in 2020 that this was a good time to evolve.

Thaw your Hempzel Swirl first and have your ingredients ready, salt or sweet items, coatings, at events we use water but at home we use coconut oil, olive oil or butter like Annie Anne's would do than - remember there are no preservatives used in our pretzels. Take them out & warm up your oven - 350 degrees is normal.

FAQ

Star ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
  1. No Is The Answer - the number one question? Will I fail or test postive for drugs if I eat one of your Hempzel Pretzels, Mustard or Seed???? - 
  2. What part of the hemp plant do you make Hempzel Pretzels with? - We combine traditional ingredients with the addition of hemp seed (hulled or hearts), hemp flour & hemp oil - depending on pretzel - Sourdough Vs Soft Hempzel.
  3. Are all your products Organic? -  No our Canadian hemp seed  is hearty and fairly rarely needs pesticides, hemp seed, flour & oil and we do use Organic Brown Rice flour in the Sourdough Hempzels but with the additional cost of hemp since we feel it's still the best with the price restraints from imported - we are working towards that goal but presently with market conditions haven't sourced all organic ingredients.
  4. Best by dates: - All our products are created without preservatives, the shortest shelf life is from our hand rolled Sourdough Hempzel Pretzels, they are made to be eaten quickly not stored away for months on end - all pretzels get hard & Hempzels get harder quicker if left uneaten for months - store airtight & cool if you do. Mustard - the bite lessens but the mustard is still good if kept refrigerated after opening beyond the best by date. Soft Pretzels are baked and frozen so keep them individually wrapped and frozen or refrigerated until ready, than thaw, heat and eat.
  5. Are your items Kosher - Not certified but the ingredients used are. The Whole Hemp Seed is certified Kosher Canada. Documentation coming soon.
  6. Why can't you come up with a gluten free pretzel? - The facilities that produce Hempzels are not gluten free at the moment - we ran our first batch of Hempzels soft Pretzel Stix that are gluten free but they need to be retailed packaged and are presently sold in bulk with heating instructions. The hemp seed is gluten free.

FAQ #1

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

No Is The Answer - the number one question? Will I fail or test postive for THC / CBD "drugs" or will eating a hemp pretzel from Hempzels™ trigger a false positive? 

  •  I signed a pledge October 2001 - stating that you will NOT TEST POSITIVE for drugs because we use industrial / agricultural hemp not medicinal or recreational cannabis grown for "flower" vs flour. This symbol was discontinued by the HEMP Industry Association a few years ago but you will see it on our labels for hemp seed, hemp pretzels, hemp mustard and more.

In 2020 we are working with companies that are using "flower" in their beverages & we are going to advance into that with some of our food products with full disclosure for our customers. Your body your choice, we want to assure you that anything we are having produced for consumpution has the cleanest ingredients. 

FAQ #3

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

Are all your products Organic?

Nope: - The Natural Hemp Seed we use contain little to no pesticides and we cannot afford to rely on Organic markets when we don't control the production faciliities.  We source clean raw materials and work with our partners to ensure products are made with great ingredients at fair prices. Occassionally we get in Organic Hemp Seed. 

  • We do use Organic Brown Rice in our Original Sourdough Hempzel™ Pretzels.
  • The Natalies & Lenka Bars we sell on www.natalalieschoice.com use an Organic Granola Base.
