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.
