Kim and Scott’s Twists up the FAAN Walk!

At Kim and Scott’s, we are huge supporters of allergy-friendly food solutions. From our nut-free bakery where we twist and bake all of our pretzels, to our gluten-free pretzel option that we currently offer at our café (and soon to be available in stores), we always try to ensure we have the right pretzel for every customer.

With all of our allergy-friendly options available, we love having the opportunity to meet new people who have never tasted our soft pretzels, as well as connect with those people who are already HUGE fans, especially all of those people who live with food allergies and/or food intolerances. How can a pretzel that tastes so great, be so safe and nutritious? That is our magic.

Because we always love to get feedback from the community, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to participate in the 2010 Chicago FAAN Walk, happening right in our backyard in Lincoln Park.

This past weekend, we had a blast participating in the FAAN Walk in Lincoln Park, which is part of a series of walks that take place all over the country dedicated to raising awareness for the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network. We had wonderful Chicago weather and great support from all of the FAAN walkers. With over 1,000 people in attendance, our Kim and Scott’s gang gave away (in record time) all 600 Bavarian, Gluten-Free, and Grilled Cheese pretzels we hand twisted and baked for the event. It was great! We look forward to becoming a larger part of the FAAN initiative in 2011.
