May 8th: - Emailed: Hey! I just wanted to thank you for the order. It was my first time ordering from Hempzels and I must say words can't describe how I feel about your baklava. Amazing just doesn't say enough! It was so good I had to take some to my grandma (who turns 95 in 2 weeks!) for her to try and she approves as well :) I'll definitely be ordering more! Oh and the mustard was really really good too.. I put some on a polish sausage and was like yum!! Just thought I'd share. And thanks for the free organic granola bar, I kinda like their flavor better than the Ruth's bars and that says a lot because I love Ruth's bars! Keep working to free the seed, you're doing fabulous! Peace, ~Lucy (State of Georgia)

January 24, 2009 - Praise Subject: Company Comments: We saw your presentation on the PA Farm Show. My wife and I were very impressed on how you presented the true facts and debunked the political fear factor. Keep up the good work. Get the PA farmers back to work. I grew up working on farms when I was in my teens and early twenties until the farms went out of business and now there are 1000s of acres of idle farm land and out of work farmers. It only makes sense to grow hemp. It will help the enviroment and put people to work almost over night. Good luck with your endeavour and buisness. Username: Bill L (Pittsburgh area) - (SPH - thank you Bill, we want the farmers to have a choice - spread the word)
January 14, 2009 - PA Farm Show Comments: What wonderful, important information you presented! I will definitely spread this information around and put forth my support for this green industry! Thanks for your efforts toward better world health. from Peg (SPH replys - thank you Peg - lets make a difference in 2009 & free the seed)
January 7, 2009 - From Website: Comments; Praise: Your horseradish mustard is by far the best my husband and I have ever tasted! We are hooked. I am glad to see I can order it from your website. I just purchased the last bottle from a local store who won't be carrying it anymore. They marked it down because the best by date was 04/08. I was just wondering if it is still ok to consume? Username: Jeanne (Teaneck, NJ) - SPH Response: Judy, by now the potency has left the mustard, the product will be more apple cidery taste vs horseradish, it's always best closer to production date, keep it refrigerated & try it mixed with olive oil in a dressing. We need to do more sampling at the stores. Thanks for your comments.
Dec 30, 2008 - From the website; Comments: "Natalies baklava is delicious. i was happy to find a local hemp product. your website is very informative. thank you for being.Having eaten many hemp products i was impressed not only by the flavor but also the information on the packaging of the Hempzels PB pretzels, which were also great and obviously very nutricious. The hemp industry is trying to grow in many places thank you for supporting the growth." "Frances D."(from Delaware)

Dec 2, 2008 - Emailed: Dear Hempzels, I feel it necessary to let your company know what a great job you are doing. Last month I tried your Pretzels and was blown away with the first-rate scrumptiousness and heartiness they had to offer. This product wsa the best I have ever tried and when I called your customer service number to ask them about the ingredients they went out of their way to make sure I was treated nice and got the information I needed. Your Pretzels were so lip-smacking and inexpensive that I decided to share it with friends and family members and do a demonstration on how fantastic they were. Sincerely, Sandy M. Waretown, NJ

Before I became a vegan, one of my favorite desserts was traditional baklava. I'm not exaggerating when I say your Natalie's Vegan Hemp Baklava is the best I've ever tasted!
The Raspberry Hemp is so rich and tasty, I've actually just eaten it with a spoon on a couple of occasions!
Ruth's Vote Hemp Bar has now become our favorite protein snack! We are extremely pleased with the quality of your products and the excellent service provided by your company.

February 6, 2008 - Great product, however unable to read your front page..the yellow just won't allow me. Also it would be nice to have the seeds without salt so those of us who do not relish salt can enjoy. LEIGH

January 10, 2008 Mustard Comments: Simply stated, this is a wonderful product with no legitimate competition. I tried this at the Pennsylvania Farm Show just today, literally eight hours ago, and it truly amazed me. So much so that I bought a bottle immediately after a tasting, and I wish I had purchased more. I love mustards, and this is a truly excellent one. The addition of horseradish provides a wonderfully zesty, agreeable kick to traditional whole seed mustard, as well as makes this a truly Pennsylvanian mustard. The omega 3 and 6 health benefits are a welcomed suprise as well; I have not been able to find a mustard with such health benefits, even in health food stores. This is truly a remarkable product. I never anticipated that something I use everyday, mustard, could incorporate such wonderful health qualities. Like many people, I assumed consuming omega oils required eating foods that are not traditional, but this is apparently not the case. Unfortunately, hemp seed must be sourced from Canada as our own government refuses to help our farmers in the endeavor to create healthy, beneficial foods. This is a truly wonderful product. Thank you. - Matthew
December 3, 2007 - My order came in, thanks for the very fast shipping. The pretzels are excellent and i plan on trying all the flavors once we have consumed this order. The observations i noted dealing with Hempzels - quick and easy payment options, easy to navigate website, friendly and fast customer service, super fast shipping and finally a great tasting product. Thanks again, Jake / Wisconsin
September 12, 2007 - Emailed: Hi Mr. House, I received my Jalepeno pretzels today and I love them! I'm not sure if any of your customers have tried this, but I love crushing the pretzels into pieces and using them in my salads! Today I used the Jalepeno pretzels in a mexican sald and it was fantastic! Thanks again, Becky (Wyncotte, PA)

Hello there! I have been enjoying your pretzels for many years now. I purchase them from my friends Frank & Jude, who own Natural Selections (aka the Hemp Shop) on Ocracoke Island NC.
I was born & raised in Lewisburg, PA, and was practically weaned on good sourdough pretzels. When I moved to NC with my stained glass business 12 years ago, I was disappointed to find that good pretzels were not available in the local grocery stores. (Plenty of pork & greens, but alas no hard pretzels - I guess there's just no accounting for taste ;) So I was really excited when Jude asked me to try your hempzels. One "peace" and I was hooked!
They are even better than my old favorite from PA, Wege sourdoughs, and I buy a bag everytime I visit Ocracoke. I sell my stained glass on the Island, and I even make hemp-leaf suncatchers for Natural Selections. So in the summer, I can get a bag or two of hempzels every couple of weeks, yay!
I especially like the white salt on my hard pretzels, which leads to the question I have for you: Are you putting less salt on them than you used to? It seems to me that they just aren't as salty as they used to be a couple of years ago. They still satisfy my deep craving for the world's best pretzels, but they could use just a little more salt lately. I understand the current need for dietary correctness, but if you could save the saltiest pretzels (original sourdough flavor) and bag them up for your Ocracoke, NC orders, I would be eternally grateful! (I know you can't do that - I'm a flaky artist, but not that flaky, ha-ha)
Anyway, keep making those great hempzels while we keep up the good fight to legalize industrial hemp!!
Your friend - enjoying a hempzel & a cold beer as we speak,
-Alison Green Heron Glass Studio ( NOTE SPH - Thanks Alison - since we sell mainly to health food stores I will work on also getting out some good ole salty pretzel "PEACES" - Enjoy the summer & much peace to you!

Thanks for your email. I ordered a case of peanut butter filled pretzel nuggets. They are awesome! I first discovered them at David's Market here in Columbia, MD but they are usually out of stock, so I thought I would order them directly to ensure that I always have a supply on hand for snacking. Our 18 year old son has forgotten about potato chips and even his beloved tortilla chips since he tasted your peanut butter filled nuggets. Thanks again for offering a healthy and delicious product.
Sincerely, Barbara M. Maryland

"I absolutely love every Hempzel product I've tried so far, especially the peanut butte nuggets! I also love that I'm dealing with a local company- that's very important!" (addition) April 23rd - we love your peanut butter pretzel nuggets and read about how your pretzel was beat out by a chocolate covered pretzel. why not create a chocolate covered peanut butter pretzel nugget (using vegan, fair-trade, organic chocolate, of course!). we can easily make these ourselves by melting chocolate chips to dip the nuggets in... but who doesn't love convenience! :D
Thanks so much!

Hi Hempzel makers
I just love your hempzels, I have been a 27 year member of Selene Food Co-op in Media, pA. I would love if you would pick up a bag of our sea salt at our food co-op and make your hempzels with the Sea Salt and call them Hempzels with Sea Salt. Sea Salt is better for you than regular table salt. It has lots of minerals that the body requires. SO one would be getting nutrition along with a great tasting pretzel. Could you please try making them for us. It would be a hit.
Thanks Maureena S
