This year, the first day of Hanukah 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 this November.
Each All Natural, Kosher Certified pancake incorporates recognizable ingredients with an assortment of harvest flavors, making them a convenient option for customers looking to create sensible holiday dishes.
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 a 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,” says 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 at Whole Foods stores in all regions.
In addition to these new products, Dr. Praeger’s offers a broad assortment of veggie burgers, veggie pancakes, fish sticks, and an entire line-up just for kids.
