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.
