With predicted snowfall happening all around us, frigid temperatures approaching, and the smell of our delicious baked gourmet pretzels filling the office, we know this can only mean one thing: Thanksgiving is almost here! While we know we are not the first ones to obsess over this holiday, as a company that focuses solely on gourmet food, we think our obsession is within pretty good reason. What holiday could be better than one entirely dedicated to food? Our thoughts exactly…
Thanksgiving brings so much to the table, what with all the food, entertainment, sports, and shopping to go around! But as most of our pretzel fans know, giving back through our pretzels with a purpose is always our top priority, especially around the holidays!
Tomorrow, our Kim and Scott’s team will head to the 1st Annual North Shore Turkey Run, a 5k taking place in Winnetka, IL on the beautiful trails of the Skokie Lagoons forest preserve. Part of tomorrow’s race will be dedicated to a canned food drive where participants and volunteers are encouraged to bring canned goods to support the charity, WINGS, an organization dedicated to helping abused homeless women and children. Our team will be donating our delicious pretzel rods to all the participating runners, and our 4-pack stuffed pizza pretzels to tomorrow’s division winners. If you are in the area, we always love to see the support of fellow pretzel fans! For more information on this race, you can visit the North Shore Turkey Run web site here.
As this gloomy Wednesday comes to an end, we hope everyone has a very safe and wonderful Thanksgiving holiday tomorrow. Everyone here at Kim and Scott’s feels so thankful to get the opportunity to share our pretzel blog with you each week, and we want to make sure all of you know how appreciative we are. We really hope you enjoy all the food, entertainment and opportunities to spread the pretzel love! Talk with you soon pretzel fans!
