After the Redditor recounted their story, several others joined the conversation to share that they hadn’t been able to get their hands on the product, either. “This explains why I have not found them in over a week,” one Redditor commented. “Not available at my warehouse in Louisville, KY. Checked the snack aisles at least 3 times, now I know why!” another social media user chimed in.
Peanut Butter Pretzels Recalled?
Some netizens who claim to work at Costco alleged that the peanut butter pretzels were on a “pull and hold” notice, which means the manufacturer recalled the product for some reason until further notice. Another staff member cited a quality issue. “We got a pull and hold notice at my Costco because the seals aren’t holding on the jars, so they are showing up stale,” they explained on the Reddit post.
All said, Costco likely hasn’t officially recalled the product yet, since the product is not on the Costco recall page. Shoppers haven’t officially been made aware of a quality issue, either. Meanwhile, some fans have filled the apparent nugget-shaped void in their lives with alternative products. “Had to buy a small tub from Kroger for the same price as the big tub from Costco,” one commenter bemoaned on the so-called front page of the internet. H.K. Anderson, an Utz Inc. brand, appears to supply the peanut butter pretzels to Costco. So, the good news is that you can still buy them from the Utz website if they’re not available at your local warehouse.
