What a fun filled afternoon!
On August 25, 2009 Galaxy Tours and Travel brought fifty two seniors to Kim and Scott’s Twisting Cafe located in the Kohl’s Children Museum to twist and decorate their own pretzels as the final stop on their Mystery Tour. These delightful folks had no idea where they’d be traveling or what they would get to see and do the entire day. We were thrilled that their final stop was with us!
Our Pretzel Professor shared the history of the pretzel’s origin and walked them through the twisting process. Everyone got their own strip of dough to twist into that familiar pretzel shape or for the more creative in the group, any shape they pleased. Next came the decorating and all our pretzel artists were provided with red, blue, green and yellow food color paints, and what delicious hand-made pretzel would be complete without toppings? Marshmallows, chocolate chips, and cinnamon sugar were all artfully applied to each pretzel creation until they were pretzel perfection. Then the pretzel creations were gathered up for baking at our cafe kitchen.
The group then had the opportunity to explore the museum and the newly renovated Habitat Park while their pretzels baked, and everyone got to take home their own warm pretzel. It was such fun being in a room full of laughter, smiles, and wonderful memories (and pretzels) being created. We even got the bus driver to jump in and make his own pretzel too!
