Here at Kim & Scott’s Gourmet Pretzels and at our Twisting Cafe, we are all really getting into the Halloween spirit! We had two great events this past weekend. One was a safety event at the Glen Town Center. We loved the idea behind this event, as we feel it’s really important to teach children how to have a safe Halloween and provide them with some fun and empowering activities. There was finger printing by the Glenview Police, cookie decorating, arts & crafts, and of course PRETZEL TWISTING! We twisted pretzels in the shape of jackolanterns, and ued some fun halloween colors and toppings to decorate. The kids were having so much fun that even the adults joined in and made their own!
We also participated in the Chicago Botanic Gardens Hallowfest, a weekend long event for families. There were also a ton of creative activities at this event. While we did not have pretzel twisting at this event, as I think they wanted to decorate real pumpkins, we provided stuffed gourmet pretzels for all guests. Kids and adults loved our twists, and we loved when they shared their enthusiasm!
