Foodie Freebie Friday: Kim & Scott Pretzels

Well hello there! It's been awhile since I've hosted my weekly Foodie Freebie Fridays... but this week I'm back. But I'm not back empty handed, especially when it's Monday and time to announce the foodie freebie of the week!

Are you a fan of pretzels? I'm not talking about those hard bagged pretzels you get at the supermarket... I'm talking about soft pretzels! I enjoy pretzels and find them to be quite a satisfying snack. Some may even say they're healthy too. Well in Chicago, we're lucky to have Kim & Scott's Pretzels headquartered here.

The pretzel was born in 610 A.D., and its spirit lives on in a magical bakery in America…In 610 A.D., an imaginative monk formed left over dough to represent children’s arms folded in prayer. It was called “Pretiola,” Latin for “little reward.” Over time, the word “Pretiola” evolved to become “Pretzel.” Today, people of all ages enjoy Kim & Scott’s unique handmade twists, made with the same magical spirit started back in 610 A.D.

Kim & Scott's Pretzels offers up some amazing soft pretzels - both sweet and savory. You may have aleady seen them at your local grocery store as they have pretzels available through the retail market. Some of my favorite flavors they offer include their Pizza Stuffed Pretzel and Grilled Cheese Stuffed Pretzels. If I want to satify my sweet tooth, I like Apple Cinnamon Pretzels and their Mixed Berry Cobbler Pretzels.

Aside from their delicious eats, they are a company dedicated to reaching out to their community, They have in place programs such as "Pretzels For Peace" where they donate pretzels and money to a variety of events in and outside of Chicago like the Breast Cancer Walk, Special Olympics, MS walks, and numerous youth organizations. Both Kim and Scott's also work with area high schools to provide an opportunity for students to shadow and work as paid interns in the company.

For this week's Foodie Freebie Friday, one lucky reader will be receiving a Kim & Scott's Original Variety Pretzel Pack which includes one of each of the following flavors, which is a total of 10 pretzels:

  4. Hi Joelen! I would LOVE to win those soft pretzels! My husband grew up in Philly and has been missing soft pretzels since we moved to Florida last year.

    I love soft preztels (especially the two little nubbies on each pretzel) and like a little bit of salt on them. They're also delish with some cinnamon and sugar on them.

    All of the flavors in the giveaway sound delicious!

    **Fingers crossed**

  15. I live in the Chicago area - never heard of those pretzels!

    OMG, Auntie Anne's pretzels from the train station - original, salted, dipped in butter please!

    So good though.

  19. how do you narrow it down to one choice? The versaility is the greatest thing about the pretzel. Soft are awesome for various dips (I'm partial to the garlic and marinara), and turning into desserts. Honey hard twists are also a favorite snack when I get the munchies during classes. great way to curb hunger without going overboard on calories.

  48. I haven't tried their pretzels yet. They look great when I have seen them.

    What I typically order is a warm soft pretzel cooked with salt on it. When it arrives I like to brush most of the salt off so that I have some of the flavor but not all the salt. (I know, probably very weird.)

    ReplyDelete
  49. I love Pretzelmaker's soft salted pretzel dipped in their cheddar cheese sauce. Yum!! Or their parmesan pretzel all by itself.

    ReplyDelete

  54. What a great give-away! Soft pretzels are one of my favorite treats! I love trying all the different kinds, but sometimes there's just nothing that quite hits the spot like the original -- with plenty of salt on top & mustard to dip it in! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  55. I love soft pretzels... Auntie Anne's cinnamon ones are yummy, but I haven't had one in years! I've never tried Kim & Scott's, so maybe that will be a new favorite if I win!
