November 19/Elmwood Park, N.J. -- This year, the first day of Hannukah coincides with Thanksgiving Day – the first and only time this will happen. This rare occurrence has inspired Dr. Praeger’s Sensible Foods to celebrate with the launch of three new seasonally inspired veggie pancakes: Roasted Corn, Root Vegetable and Zucchini & Carrot. All three varieties will be available exclusively at Whole Foods across the nation this November.
Each all-natural, Kosher-certified pancake incorporates an assortment of harvest flavors.
- Root Vegetable Pancake: Like a “better-for-you” cranberry stuffing in the shape of a pancake, this variety features a mix of beets, cranberries, and quinoa with rutabaga, potatoes, celery and sweet potatoes. (Vegan / Gluten-Free)
- Roasted Corn Cakes: By combining roasted corn with roasted garlic, leeks, cilantro and chipotle, these cakes add a nutritious zing to a traditional holiday vegetable side. (Vegetarian)
- Zucchini & Carrot Pancakes: Featuring two harvest favorites, this variety delivers the taste of fall in a convenient to prepare pancake. (Vegetarian / Gluten-Free)
“Given our family and company heritage, we thought this was a fun opportunity to celebrate and create some seasonal offerings,” said Larry Praeger, vice president of Dr. Praeger’s Sensible Foods. “These pancakes incorporate a lot of the harvest vegetables and tastes associated with traditional holiday meals. We’re excited to offer a tasty, healthy and convenient twist on these seasonal dishes.”
The new pancakes have an SRP of $4.99 per box of six, individually wrapped patties. These seasonal varieties will be available starting November, exclusively at Whole Foods stores.
