Kim & Scott's Gourmet Pretzels, the company known for transforming the soft pretzel from a snack food to an anytime meal, has created The Pink Ribbon Pretzel as a delicious tribute to the strong women facing the disease. The Pink Ribbon Pretzel is an all-natural and nut-free twisted cinnamon roll, stuffed with a buttery, brown sugar and cinnamon filling drizzled with sweet pink icing (see attached photograph).

Throughout the past year, Kim, a seasoned QVC saleswoman has sold many pretzels, including the Pink Ribbon Pretzel on QVC. A portion of the proceeds for their Pink Ribbon Pretzel went to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Like so many families, Kim Holstein's has been touched by the disease. As the president/CEO and Chief Inspiration Officer of Kim & Scott's Gourmet Pretzels, she and her team created this special pretzel as part of its Pretzels for Peace(TM) program. Pretzels for Peace(TM) is an initiative that donates pretzels, time and dollars to not-for-profits that make a positive difference in the world.

Some of the organizations that have benefited from Pretzels for Peace(TM) include: the ALS Foundation, the Avon Breast Cancer Walk, Breast Cancer Network of Strength (the organization formerly known as Y-Me), Children's HeartLink, Homes for Our Troops, National Heart Association, the Special Olympics, and Trees for The Future.

Kim & Scott's Gourmet Pretzels was started in 1995 and is now run out of a 35,000 sq. foot Chicago bakery with annual sales projected at $10-15 million. Almost 15 years later they've transformed the pretzel from a snack to an anytime meal. Kim & Scott's Gourmet Pretzels deliciously touts more than 10 varieties. Each all-natural pretzel is made from scratch and twisted by hand. The company is proud that its pretzels are made in a nut-free facility, a great source of whole grains and free from trans fats, preservatives and hydrogenated oils.

A woman-owned and run company, Kim & Scott's all natural and nut free pretzels are flying off the shelves at Whole Foods, Super Target, major grocery chains, smoothie chains, coffee shops, movie theaters and airports around the country. But it's Kim's bigger commitment to the company's mission to nurture, love and feed the stomachs, spirits and souls of the world community that keeps her churning out "Pretzels with a Purpose."

Kim & Scott's products and philanthropic efforts have been highly praised in 2004 by Fortune Magazine as a company "Breaking Big" and recognized by Inc. 5000 as one of the "fastest growing companies in America." Additionally, they have been deliciously touted by USA Today, Entrepreneur, CNBC's Power Lunch, CNBC's Donny Deutsch's "Big Idea," Food Network's Dean Brothers and Food Network's Roker on the Road who even called the pretzels "the talk of the Windy City."

In September 2009, Kim was named the Entrepreneurial Woman of the Year by the Women's Business Development of Chicago for her business model and philanthropic efforts.
