While we don't currently have any vegetarian Hot Pockets®, we do offer meatless options: Four Cheese Pizza Hot Pocket® with Crispy Crust and Five Cheese Pizza Hot Pocket® with Garlic Buttery Crust. We also have two varieties of Stuffed Pretzels that are meatless: Cheesy Jalapeno and Fiery Chorizo Queso Fundido.
We produce a variety of Hot Pockets® and nutritional facts differ for each product. Please review the back of the box of your favorite Hot Pocket for its sodium information.
While Hot Pockets® are a favorite, sometimes people desire a leaner option but they still want a hearty, satisfying snack or meal. That's when they reach for Lean Pockets®. We worked hard to deliver tasty flavors that still allow you to count what's important to you while never sacrificing on taste or quality.
Because recycling programs can vary by location, it’s best to check the packaging labels and then check with your local recycling company. More information and tips can be found here: https://www.nestleusa.com/sustainability/how-to-recycle-packaging-sustainability-label

Packaging & Preparation
In general, if you're microwaving one Hot Pockets® brand sandwich, we recommend cooking for two minutes. Let sit for two minutes to complete cooking, and enjoy. For conventional ovens, preheat oven 350 degrees and bake (without the crisping sleeve) for 28 minutes. Ovens vary, and cooking time may need to be adjusted.
Cook times differ depending on product, quantity of product being cooked, and device you're cooking with. You can find specific instructions for each Hot Pockets® sandwich variety by visiting our Cooking Time page.
For best results, we recommend cooking one Hot Pockets® sandwich at a time. If you decide to cook two, we recommend microwaving them for 3 minutes and 30 seconds.
We do not recommend that the sleeve be reused because it was not designed as a permanent container.
When making Hot Pockets® in a conventional oven, preheat to 350 degrees. Unwrap the sandwich and place on a baking sheet. Please do not use the crisping sleeve in the oven. Bake for 28 minutes then carefully remove from oven. Ovens vary, and your cooking time may need to be adjusted.
Making crispy Hot Pockets® is simple! Insert your sandwich into the provided Crisping Sleeve, and it'll be nice and crispy once it's cooked.
Please enjoy your Hot Pockets® before the Best Before date stamped directly on the package to ensure peak flavor and optimum quality.
We don't recommend storing your Hot Pockets® in the fridge at any time. Keep your sandwich in the freezer until you're ready to enjoy!
Absolutely do not eat Hot Pockets® or Lean Pockets® sandwiches if they are thawed. Always prepare them according to the cooking recommendations on the package.
Ice crystals occur naturally on frozen products. Excessive ice crystals (a sign that you still need to cook your Hot Pockets® sandwich) may result from fluctuations in storage temperature.
As long as there’s a Hot Pockets® or Lean Pockets® brand logo on your box, you’re in the right place. We use the sleeves to talk to you, and we change what we’re saying from time to time.
We occasionally offer cents-off coupons in local newspapers, through direct mailing programs, and on Facebook. In addition, we suggest you watch for special sales or promotions at your local grocery store.
