FlavorFest was Awesome!

This past weekend we had the chance to participate at Whole Foods Flavor Fest, a great event by Whole Foods featuring some of the brands that Whole Foods carries. We had a booth where we sampled warm pretzels to all of the attendees. We sampled Pizza, Grilled Cheese, Apple Cinnamon, Bavarian, Sourdough Parmesan, and Spinach Feta. We gave away over 10,000 samples! We also had over 70 people sign up for our pretzel club, which will help us to plant over 70 trees! We can’t wait to do it again next year..

Connecting With Our Passionate Pretzel Club

Some of us from Kim & Scott’s Gourmet Pretzels are offsite today, discussing how we can more personally connect with our Pretzel Club members. We’d love to hear your thoughts on all the social media sites, blogs, micro blogs, etc. Even the youngest of us is blown away by the rapid growth of these cyber venues. We are at a very creative place in Chicago called Sip, which is close to our office.
