October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and according to the American Cancer Society, one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. We’ll be adding our own twist for the cause this month, as this topic is very important to us.
First, we had amazing response last year to our special Pink Ribbon Pretzel! Our Pink Ribbon Pretzel is a stuffed Cinnamon Roll Pretzel, hand-twisted in the shape of the breast cancer awareness ribbon, and topped with pink white chocolate drizzle. It’s all-natural and truly has the center of the cinnamon roll in every bite. They also have a special special Pink Ribbon label, which also received many great responses, as many women sent a dozen to some of their friends and family touched by breast cancer. It really made a nice gift.

We will also be giving the gift of support, helping organizations that provide information, research, resources and emotional support to those touched by Breast Cancer. 5% of all online sales this month will be donated to organizations that support the cause and the cure. We’ll also be giving away our special pink products at many awareness events this month.
Some of the great organizations that Kim & Scott’s Gourmet Pretzels supports are listed below, but we would especially like for you to take a notice of a revolutionary new opportunity for ALL women to partner with research scientists to move beyond a cure. Please join the Army of Women that will help eliminate breast cancer by identifying what causes this disease and stopping it before it starts. Learn more at www.armyofwomen.org!
For our Chicagoans and visitors, our Pink Ribbon Pretzel and a special Twisted Pink Double Dipped dark chocolate covered pretzel rod will also be featured at Kim & Scott’s Pretzel Bakery & Twisting Café, located at Kohl Children’s Museum of Greater Chicago. And we’ll be twisting for the cure with our Twist ‘N Top™ activity. Our Twist ‘N Top lets children twist, decorate and paint their very own pretzel! Come TWIST for the cure with us!
We hope you will join us in the cause during this very important month. For additional information and support, please visit any of the wonderful sites listed below that help to make a difference in the world of Breast Cancer. We’d also love to hear from you about any breast cancer organizations that you find inspiring!
