Let’s Move- With Kim & Scott’s!

By the power vested in our President, Barack Obama, he has declared May 2011 Physical Fitness and Sports Month. This along with the First Lady’s program, “Let’s Move,” have both worked to target the issue of childhood obesity by encouraging parents and their kids to get out and move and to make healthier food choices.

Whether you are on your way to the gym or rushing to take your kid to soccer practice, Kim & Scott’s Gourmet Pretzels make it easy for an on-the-go snack that allows for convenience without compromising taste or nutrition.

Kim & Scott’s Flavor Favorites

How do we get our flavors anyway? That’s a really good question. And in honor of May’s quirky Apple Pie Day and the odd, yet delicious sounding, Blueberry Cheesecake Day, we’ll give you some answers.

More than 16 years ago, Kim was an ad exec honing her entrepreneurial skills. She read an article about the soft pretzel making a comeback and couldn’t get the doughy snack out of her head. Soon thereafter she met Scott (a great love story, but for a different blog) and the two set up shop in Kim’s Lincoln Park studio apartment. They tried recipe after recipe and flavor after flavor. Kim was obsessed with a chocolate chip pretzel…isn’t everyone? While the chocolate stuck around, the onion dill didn’t make the cut.

Today, Kim & Scott’s of course bakes the traditional Bavarian soft pretzel, but our stuff varieties including Apple Cinnamon, Chocolate Crumb, Cheddar Jalapeno, Pizza and Grilled Cheese are at the top of our sales charts. We use only premium ingredients and proudly bake with whole grains.
