Warehime, founder of Hanover Canning Company, began producing OldeTyme Pretzels for the Hanover Pretzel Company.Lance was founded in 1913 by Philip L. Lance who began offering customers samples of roasted peanuts and hand-packed peanut butter spread on crackers in 1916. This led to the first packaged peanut butter sandwich cracker.
